February ~ Round Up. πŸ’œ

Oh my it’s March already so it must be time to write a quick round up of my February. I have seen snowdrops , experienced some Van Time and watched a bit of good telly. Can’t be bad…..

READING ~ I haven’t finished it yet but I am enjoying reading Helen Russell’s ‘ The Year Of Living Danishly’ an amusing memoir of a Brit couples relocation to the land of Lego and Cinnamon Buns ‘ Denmark’. Apparently Denmark still tops the ‘ Happiest Country Polls ‘ 7 years after this book was published. Pass me a Danish Pastry!

The Marvelous Mrs M.

WATCHING ~ I have been in a binge watching mood this February. Blame the horrid weather! I’ve been reaquainting myself with money laundering in Ozark, sinking my fangs into Wolf Like Me, preferring the new Reacher series to the Tom Cruise films and of course adoring all things Midge Maisel in The Marvelous Mrs Maisel. ❀️

EATING ~ I won’t mention my new found addiction to Pot Noodles ( aagh why is this happening! ) but instead share a photo of a delicious curry some friends cooked for us. Quite simply scrumptious.

VAN TIME ~ We did manage a couple of nights away at the caravan in-between Storm Dudley and Storm Eunice. Luckily we felt very safe and cosy inside the van. And managed a walk and a visit to Penrith whilst the weather was calm. Now that Spring is round the corner we are hoping to get away to our bolt hole a couple of times a month.

ENJOYING ~ Going Out Out. Spot Funk & Soul DJ Craig Charles in the background.

~ Signs of Spring. Despite the dismal weather there have been a couple of dry days. The sun came out on Sunday whilst walking round Dean Clough Reservoir near Great Harwood. It was a privilege glimpsing a couple of Great Crested Grebes affirming their relationship with a dazzling Water dance display.

How has your February been? πŸ’œ

  1. Looks like is has been a packed and busy month for you! I love the picture of the Grebes, I have never seen their displays in person but have watched them on videos, how wonderful to see it for real. I loved the Helen Russell book, it has been a very long time since someone shared what they are reading and I have actually read the book!

  2. I love these kinds of posts, little insights into all the things people get up to. I’m probably just very nosy haha. Looks like you had a great month of good food, good times and good company. I had no idea Craig Charles was DJ-ing. I still think of him in terms of Coronation St and Red Dwarf. I suspect I’ve fallen behind the times.

    1. Haha yeh that’s what he’s most famous for definitely. Today he has a funk and soul radio show on radio 6. Not sure how we found that!

  3. The birds are beautiful.
    We did manage to go for some walks in February but not a lot.
    I am struggling with my reading at the moment. That book looks interesting.

      1. Good point. So we’ll be Swallows, then? that’s what we call European visitors who spend the 6 month Northern winter here in SA, and then migrate back to Europe when the Northern summer starts = 6 months here, then 6 months there. Needs deep pockets and large suitcases.
