What I loved in February 2020!

January seemed to last forever and February has flown over. I know it's a shorter month by a couple of days but it was one of those blink and you missed it months!

This is what I loved in February:

A fab half term!
This was the first half term where I hardly saw the kids. They were with their friends doing their own thing and they loved it. We did have a trip to Hull and the kids had a visit to the cinema. It doesn't seem that long until the Easter holidays and the girls are already making plans.

Doing bits around the house!
We seem to have got lots done around the house over the past month. Little jobs like putting shelves up and fixing doors to decorating Becky's bedroom, getting her a new bed and decorating the bathroom. Even though it's felt like home since we moved in here it's starting to feel more like our home. The next job on the list is to decorate the hallway and up the stairs.

Carrot Cake Muffins!
I always have a muffin for my breakfast with a cuppa. Usually I go for lemon one's but every year Tesco bring out a limited edition one for Easter and this years is delicious! They are probably not meant for breakfast as they probably aren't the healthiest but they're only around for a couple of months so I'm making the most of them when they are here.

The Stranger.
I watched this in a couple of days and it was so good! 
We all have secrets. Based on the novel by Harlan Coben, The Stranger forces us to confront a question we all fear, how well do we really know the people closest to us? When a stranger makes a shocking claim about his wife, family man Adam Price becomes entangled in a mystery as he desperately searches for answers.

Valentine's Day!
This was the first year that both my girls gave and received cards and gifts for Valentine's day. They're growing up far too fast for my liking but Ellie has a boyfriend, he's such a sweet lad and way more sensible than the other lad she had a thing for and Becky is in a relationship and has been for a couple of months and I finally got to meet the girl in question. She's a lovely lass.

A brilliant night out!
Early on in February I had a night out with my dad's partner seeing a Bon Jovi tribute act. They were fab and it was brilliant to have some time away from the kids. I love them to bits but it is nice to have a bit of adult company and a few drinks.

What did you love in February?


  1. Hi Kim, February does pass in a whirl. It sounds as if you've settled nicely and the girls are growing into happy youug adults. I added The Stranger to my Netflix list last night. Can't wait to start watching it!... I think the thing I loved in February is enjoying noticeably lighter mornings and seeing the spring flowers popping up their pretty heads.


    1. It really did fly over.
      The Stranger is brilliant. I was hooked from the first episode. x

  2. Isn't it mad how quickly they grow, and change. This move seems to have been so positive for you all x

    1. Thank you! They have grown up so much since we moved, it's scary x

  3. I've been watching The Stranger too, not my usual watch, but it's been good. Glad you have settled in since the move and had a good time over half term xx

  4. The Stranger was so good, I binge watched it in two days when I was unwell. We are off to Hull in May, we are reviewing a caravan park nearby x
