This Month in the Blogosphere - January 2011
Well my lovelies - we've made it through January - hurrah!
I always think January is a bit of a shock to the system. Seeing as how the shortest day of the year happens in December I'm prone to kid myself that once we get into January, the Winter's nearly over.
Clearly, that's not the case. We're all still getting up in the dark, coming home in the dark and, after a somewhat warmer spell, we've also had another cold snap.
Plus there's no more Christmas fun and of course I'm back on the dreaded diet. Yuck.
Fortunately, it's not all doom and gloom - curl up with a lovely cuppa (and maybe a biscuit or two) and check out January's best bits...
