Back to Routine

We spent New Years Eve with our neighbours. A nice quiet evening with good friends. During supper on New Years Day we opened up some champagne, exciting in itself, and gave each of the kids a little bit to try. It may not have been such a great idea....they all wanted more!

I'm not very good at adjusting to change, meaning going back to school and work after such a wonderful time at home with the kids. I just need to get that first day out of the way and then I'm great! Today we undecorated the tree, and sent it off to the chipper. The house seems a little empty without it now. I then sent hubby and the kids out for a walk and made cookies. All set for school lunches tomorrow.

I totally forgot all about my paperwhite bulbs. I ended up finding them in the shed and got them going, a tiny bit of spring in the house is a good feeling! Enjoy the week getting back to your routine!


  1. sounds like a great way to start of the year...baking and enjoying your family. Have a great rest of the week!

  2. so glad you pulled out the paper whites! they'll be lovely!! Happy New Year!

  3. New Year's with good friends sounds great! we let our kiddos try champagne too and they hated it - but they're a bit younger than yours. Enjoy your week - routine can be a good thing.

  4. i love your beautiful blog, and i will be back to visit often!
