January Wrap Up

Phew, January is over! And for normally such a dull month, I managed to do quite a lot of things!

Toured- The Corrie Studio! My brother was up at the weekend so I spent the last day in January on the famous cobbles. I also toured the Greater Manchester Police Museum in the middle of the month with my boyfriend and loved the place. Really recommend a visit.

Watched- Birdman. On the same day as going to the police museum, my boyfriend and I went to see Birdman in the cinema. I liked it, I know he was on the fence about it. I loved how it was shot to look like one continuous shot, I thought it was done really well.

Socialised- A lot! Besides two knit club sessions, my boyfriend and I went to an All You Can Eat Ribs and Wings night in Morley Cheeks with some friends, we also had Sunday lunch together in Oddest. I went to the lovely Rebecca’s house (not before going to Bon Bon for a hot chocolate) and she cooked me an amazing dinner. Rebecca also took me into Fred Aldous for the first time and I returned a week later with my boyfriend to take photo booth pictures. Before going to the Greater Manchester Police Museum, my boyfriend and I had a brunch in North Star. And On Saturday after the Corrie tour, I met my uncle and aunt in Taps for dinner and a few drinks, before heading to Gas Lamp to meet a cousin and her boyfriend. I’m pretty impressed with what I did in a cold and rainy January!

Read- Only three books, you can check them out here

Listened- To a lot of 90s RnB! I made a playlist, which you can check here, expect a lot of En Vogue, TLC and Destiny’s Child!

Knitted- Quite a bit actually! I think part of the reason my reading numbers are down is because I’ve spent a lot of time knitting. I made two hats, a scarf and a pair of booties. I also started another hat but only finished it last night so you’ll see that in February’s wrap.

Driving- That’s right, driving! For the first time since November 2013. I got put on my boyfriend’s insurance and while I haven’t gone far, I’m so happy to be back behind the wheel!

That’s it really! Let’s see if I can pack in as much stuff in February!


  1. You had an insanely productive month! I managed 3 books too but I really want to get a few more in this month (despite it being a lot shorter than last month! I'm not sure how that's going to work)

    1. I'm so happy I managed to get stuff done, I love doing these posts as it makes me realise I did more than I realised!

      I need to get more books in as well, I really need to get back into the swing of things! I've got three things completed from the book challenge I'm doing (Sharon is doing it as well), I want to knock a few more off! (I'm mainly reading things and then after looking at the list to see if I've done any challenges!)

  2. You fit so much stuff into one month! Well done on the driving, it's something I still need to tackle but I hate the thoughts of it :( I actually forgot about the reading challenge, will check and see how many I can cross off! x

    1. this month I'm making up for it by doing nothing! Oh I'm curious about how many reading challenges you crossed off!
