My January To-Do List

First of all, Happy New Year! How the hell are we in 2020?! 2019 flew by, it's actually crazy. So, to kick start 2020 I wanted to do something a little similar to what I did in December actually. Last month I finally shared a monthly to-do list after being inspired by so many other bloggers so now I want to carry on and try and make them a more regular thing. I think I managed to cover everything I wanted to last month so fingers crossed January will be the same! I always start the year off feeling a little anxious at the prospect of a whole 12 months ahead with no clue what's going to come up and I always end up on a bit of a comedown after Christmas so I'm trying to remain positive and focus on some of the good things we have coming up.

De-Clutter

First up I need to have a serious de-clutter in this flat. Anyone else find things just build and build over Christmas but because it's Christmas that's the perfect excuse to leave it all? Our office had somehow ended up being in a bit of a state yet again as we just don't have much storage so that's only got worse and of course there's everything from Christmas that needs to be sorted. Bear has more toys now than he knows what to do with, both George and I need to find homes for our presents and obviously the decorations also need to come down and be stored away. Yes our decorations are still up and will be for a few more days, I'm not ready to say goodbye to them again yet. Anyway, a serious tidy and clean is needed this week for a fresh start for the year.

Get Ahead With Blog Posts

I got into a really bad habit in November/December of leaving blog posts til the very last minute and sometimes not writing them until the day before they were due to go live and there's nothing wrong that and if that works for you, go for it, but the planner in me was horrified by that. I'm usually so organised but towards the end of last year I just lost all motivation. I had so many posts I wanted to share but just couldn't bring myself to get ahead like I usually would and of course that only led to me ending up stressed. Blogging just all became a bit of a chore. I'm already doing better so far as I have all of this week's and next week's posts written and ready to go so let's just hope I can keep up with that for the rest of the month...and year.

See Les Miserables

Finally, something much more fun, we're going to see Les Mis next week! It feels like absolutely ages ago we booked the tickets so now it's almost here, I'm just so excited. As always I've been stressing a little about my birthday, I'm definitely not ready to be 25, but each year it does seem to get a little easier. That being said I did really want to do something special this year and for me there's nothing better than going to see a musical. I've watched the film so many times and listened to the soundtrack more times than I could count so it's just going to be so special to see it live.

Go To The Harry Potter Tour

The day after Les Mis, we're continuing with the birthday celebrations and heading to the Warner Brothers Studio Tour and even better it will be #hogwartsinthesnow when we're there so still festive! Both George and I are huge fans of Harry Potter, in the run up to Christmas especially it's always nice to sit down and watch them so it's a dream come true to go to the tour and find out everything there is to know! So, so excited!

Celebrate George's Birthday

We have another birthday in January and that's George's! We're not 100% sure what we're going to do yet as it's likely George will be working away on the day which is rubbish but we'll deal with it. We're definitely going to find another time to celebrate though as 25 is definitely a big one and we want to do something special. It will be a nice way to end the month though so I'm looking forward to it, whatever we decide.

January is never my fave month of the year and it tends to drag more than any other month for some reason but we do have some really fun stuff planned so I'm looking forward to it more than I usually would! Have you got much planned for this month? Have you been to the Harry Potter studio tour?

It looks like you are going to have a good start to 2020. I would love to go back and do The Harry Potter Studio tour again as so much has changed since I went, plus I bet it will be even better in the snow!

Good luck with your January to do list! I wasn't as planned ahead with my posts as I usually am in December either and I'd like to get back on track with my schedule x

Happy New Year! Great list - hope George has a great birthday. I always de-clutter before the end of the year so thankfully I'm clutter free at the moment although I can't image that lasting too long haha! x

Good luck with all of your goals! I need to get better at getting ahead with blog posts, I've been writing all my January content in the past few days and I feel like I'm so late with everything. Happy early birthday to George too xx

The Harry Potter Studios are amazing, my partner took me for our anniversary. You will in no way be disappointed by it, when you come to the Castle take a minute to breathe it all in. Magical really is.
