For once, I’m lost for words…

It’s not very often that I’m at a loss for words, but I have to admit that I’m struggling with what to write for my January blog post.

January has been a challenging month in many ways with some niggly health problems which have kept myself and AJ pretty much home-bound. AJ, a great outdoorsman who absolutely loves taking himself and Viv out into the woods and fields every day for long walks, has been suffering from a painful condition called plantar fasciitis. He’s been walking with a stick and can only manage short walks. He’s been doing his exercises every day and thankfully he seems to be on the mend now, much to Viv’s delight (mum doesn’t walk nearly as far as dad does, LOL).

Plus, we’ve both had some chesty virus which had hung around for ages, and I’ve had a flare-up of a stomach problem that rears its ugly head this time of year for some reason. All-in-all, it’s not been a bundle of laughs around here 🙂

So, the only thing I can think of to post about is the great movies and TV series we’ve been watching (thanks, Netflix!) One of which has been the new Witcher series. Has anyone been watching? Of course, it has Henry Cavil to recommend it, and he’s always easy on the eye (even as Geralt), so I think that perhaps added to its appeal. I’ve also especially enjoyed The Last Witch Hunter (see a pattern here?) and The Crown and Virgin River. Plus, here in the UK, we have a show called Dancing on Ice which I’m enjoying and a couple of excellent crime drama series.

At first, it felt like all that enforced TV watching was a waste of time and I kept feeling guilty that I didn’t have any energy to write, but it has certainly filled my well, and I’m ready to get back to some serious writing now.  Fingers crossed.

How has your January been?

  1. First, owowowow. I hope you and your husband both heal quickly. Not fun. As for movie watching, I’m so happy to hear its refilling your imagination coffers. Wasn’t Virgin River great? I love that series.

  2. I always think if I’m going to have a bad month health wise the winter months are better as I hate getting out in the wet and cold. Not feeling well I can nap and laze around without feeling too guilty.

    Love Virgin River and watched the whole series in a marathon viewing. Thank you Laurie, I wouldn’t have seen it without your heads up.

  3. Bless you on the chest thing. I’ve been coughing since before Christmas so I can totally relate. Poor AJ on his feet issue. I hear that’s super painful. I know Vivvy was really missing her strolls with him. Hope everyone is on the mend now. I did watch the Witcher and liked it. I’m hoping to get to Virgin River soon. It sounds great.

  4. Glad you are both recovered now. Keep safe. x
