The Me and Mine Project (January)

I discovered the Me and Mine project a couple of months ago and it has quickly become one of my most favourite photo link-ups. I love the idea of taking pictures of the whole family each month. We only started linking up in November last year, but I am hoping to be able to post a Me and Mine picture every month this year. Saying that, January was a bit of a rush for us and we only took these pictures yesterday. I must try and be a lot more organised in the future.


I don’t know about you, but I always find it bit difficult to really get going in January. It’s probably my least favourite month of the year with all the Christmas festivities over and the weather usually not being very nice. We went for a few walks, but most weekends were spent indoors. We used this time to book our holiday for this year. We are going to Disneyland Paris in May – yay!! We are so excited (well, my little one and I more so than my husband, but I am sure he will love it just as much as we will). Our little girl is obsessed with Disney. The Anna and Elsa dolls Father Christmas brought literally never leave her side and she plays with them constantly.


this month our little one loved:

  • playing with her Anna and Elsa dolls
  • jumping in muddy puddles (yes, our garden is completely water-logged and instead of grass we have lots of mud – much to the delight of our little girl)
  • playing in the snow (we only had a sprinkling, but it was enough to enjoy a good few hours outside)
  • seeing all her friends in nursery after the Christmas break
  • skyping with her grandparents abroad

this month my husband loved:

  • watching his beloved New Zealand play Pakistan in the ODI series 
  • the return of some brilliant TV programmes (mainly Agents of Shield and Agent Carter)
  • trying out our new exercise bike
  • properly organising his robot collection in shiny new IKEA furniture
  • finally feeling better after being wiped out by a virus for a few weeks

this month I loved:

  • having afternoon tea with author Claudia Carroll at Harper Collins Headquarters in London (she is one of the most humble and friendly people I have ever met)
  • finding some bargains in the January sales
  • being snuggled up on the sofa to my husband watching our most favourite TV series (Agents of Shield, Agent Carter, Deutschland 83)
  • eating (or at least trying to) eat more healthily

  1. Aww, such lovely photos. And I am seriously jealous about Disneyland, we went last Spring and just had the most magical time ever. x
