#WBOYC February 2024


It's a leap year so we get an extra day in February, although it's still the shortest month of the year.  What was on my calendar?  


Finally finishing my Wasgij jigsaw.  It is really hard to complete a jigsaw when you don't know what the picture is!  (Confession time, I did have to google the solution to get started but from then on I tried to do it without any further clues)


Easting and drinking, what a good job I didn't make any new year's resolutions to eat sensibly and healthily all the time!  Nine meals or lunches with friends.


Booked a vineyard tour.  Jon and Sophie bought us a voucher for a vineyard tour, wine tasting and sharing cheese board as our Christmas present so as soon as the 2024 dates were released I booked us in for a few months time.  I didn't even know we had a vineyard anywhere near us!  I will report back when we have been.


Resisting the urge to do my crocheting as quickly as possible (my usual way of working) so that I can properly enjoy the process of making my next blanket.


Unsubscribing from marketing emails.  You know how you get 10% off your first order if you subscribe to online companies?  Then they bombard you on almost a daily basis trying to entice you to buy things you really don't need.  So rather than have temptation filling up my inbox, every morning I am unsubscribing to each email I didn't really want to receive and boy has the amount of emails I am receiving reduced and now I only see special offers from companies I really want to buy from!


Ashamed of the state of my nails, honestly they have never been in such bad condition.  I haven't had a professional manicure for so long.  This was well overdue and I am now loving my nails and waving my hands around as much as possible so they get the attention they deserve! They even match the jumper I was wearing to the appointment.


Researching somewhere to go for a long weekend with Coco once the weather settles down and spring arrives.  We narrowed it down to the Kent coastline and now have a cottage booked for a few months time.


Yearning for a rest after half term childcare duties.  Either they are getting more energetic or I am getting older 😉

So that's it for another month.  Thanks to Deb at the other Deb's World for organising this round up and let's end on the 1 Second Everyday video of the month.

Hello Deb, the jigsaw looks fabulous and I like the idea of a vineyard tour. I really must do something about deleting old emails - they certainly build up don't they. Thanks for sharing your February with us at #WBOYC and have a Marvelous March. x

Hi, Deb - I nodded with recognition on many of the points that you raise here, especially the state of my nails! When I tried to comment from my mac computer, I couldn't get through. But when I switched to my Samsung phone it was no problem at all. The internet is strange this way.

Getting. my nails done is a guilty pleasure for sure. They are just horrible when I let them go. I always end up picking at them. At least when I splurge on the professional job, I leave them alone!

Deb you had a busy month with lots of fun activities. Well done you figuring out that difficult puzzle. Wine tours are SO fun (IMO) cannot wait to hear yours went. Pretty nails.

Too funny - waving your hands as you answer the simplest questions so others can appreciate your new nails!!:) I love it. I don't usually get a manicure but I do love a nice pedicure. I've yet to wave my feet around but I can cross my legs just so...surely someone will notice my toes!!:) Hope you are enjoying your weekend!

Thanks for joining us with your monthly update Deb, I always enjoy seeing what you get up on the other side of the world. I won't even mention my nails - my toenails get more attention than my fingernails for some reason!!
I hear you on the child minding duties being tiring (but fun).
Good work on the vineyard booking and the long weekend to Kent, hopefully spring is on the way and the weather warms up nicely for you.
Great to have you join in for #WBOYC!
