Highlights of January 2015

January has been really moving at a whirlwind speed for me. The kids are currently back in school as the new school year had  just started for all.

The alarm  has to be set for 6am on weekdays now as the boys have to wake up and get ready for school which starts at 7.15am.  Everyone has to adjust to an early starting hour in the day and thankfully it hasn’t been too difficult for us to make the change.

Even though the day starts earlier for everyone I find that time passes much faster as there are more things to get done within the time frame of the day.

My word for 2015- Change

This year is certainly a year for CHANGE as I embark on an overhaul on all the major areas in my life.   I am actively working on the resolutions that I set for 2015 and am determined to get everything on that list cross off come 1st January 2016.

We had a great trip to Penang, Malaysia in December with the extended family. This time around we booked a service apartment  as it would mean more space for the kids to run about.  It was a great decision as we had  3 bedroom and a large living room with a magnificent view.

We saw a few unusual birds  when we were at Penang hill. It was the first time that the kids saw  a crowned pigeon which had blood shot eyes. It was certainly a first for all.

Ensuring that the kids eat well for breakfast is something which I’m focusing on this year.  Sunday is the day where we do not need to wake up early to rush for school or lessons .I have  a bit more time to prepare breakfast for the family and we have been having waffles and pancakes so far.

The kids have started on a new hobby this year. They are doing Hama Bead Crafting.  They have made quite a few designs so far since we started crafting and I love that it keeps them away from electronic gaming devices while enhancing their creativity.

How was your month of January like?
