Well February is turning out to a busy month for me, our life always seems to be busy during the winter. As much as I love it, it then doesn’t hold out much hope for the rest of the year.
January has become a month where we go out for dinner with in brother-in-laws their gorgeous girl friends and their Aunty and Uncle who we are all really close too. It has been happening for the last 6 years and is something we all look forward too. The brother’s birthdays are all in January and early February so that is how it started.
Getting social in February
But February, wow, we have got meals and lunches booked all over the place. It’s my Hubby’s birthday along with his younger brother at the start of the month, so this weekend we are off out for dinner as a group of 4, (the older brother is away in London, but he was invited). We have a baby sitter.. woohoo!
Next week we have an evening meal out with my Dad, who now lives 3 hours away in Surrey, so he is coming up for a couple of nights. He has offered to take us all out for dinner, so we are heading to the village pub for dinner.
The following weekend, we have valentines day, so that will be a meal at home, normally the trusty M&S meal deal. Then shock horror we are having a take away with my mother in law and the brothers, partners and the children. It’s a once a year deal, we don’t really have meals with my mother in law, although we do see them a lot it’s more a cuppa and putting the political world to rights….. often resulting in needing a gin after.
Then it’s my birthday… woohoo! I think we might head to York for the day. It’s one of my favourite places to visit for the day. Although we haven’t been since we moved house, so it’s now just over 2 hours for us to get there. But with a full day out, will mean another meal out.
The weekend after we have been invited to my father-in-laws house for Sunday lunch, again with my brother-in-laws. My Hubby also has 3 step brothers and a step sister, plus their partners and children. At the moment there is 20 of us with the four children and 9 dogs! It’s busy at the father-in-laws when we are all together. But Sunday lunch is just us, the 2 brothers, girlfriends and the children, which will be nice. We have full family get togethers when we are get outside for the extra space!
My last night out is with a group of friends, celebrating my besties new job! She has landed her dream job working in London and I couldn’t be prouder! So I am staying over at hers so we can all enjoy a meal out and drinks after.
My month is super busy and I cannot remember having so many plans just one month since having children. But it is really nice to have things to look forward to.
Now what am I going to wear?
