I feel like we have barely had time to blink and already I am writing my end of January posts! We read so many books over Christmas and in December in general it feels like this month’s post is a little bit empty! Though there has been lots of chances to read as the weather has been awful here. But we have spent time playing games and doing jigsaws.
I have another wonderful batch of Boo’s photos to share with you again! She is still having lots of fun with her camera, and has started to ask to use it more and more. Though for some reason she doesn’t want to take it outside yet (which is maybe just as well as the weather has been awful!)
It’s really important to my husband and I that Boo grows up being able to speak different languages. After all she has family in lots of different countries. My husband is half Danish and half Dutch and so he has family in Denmark and Holland. So, obviously, Danish and Dutch are two languages we really want Boo to be able to speak. My husband often speaks Danish to Boo, though at the minute she prefers to answer in English. It is amazing what she can understand though. And she will tell her daddy, (and sometimes me), that she loves us in Danish which is very cute!
Boo has loved ice skating ever since her very first time when we visited Lapland UK in November of last year. Now Boo and her daddy go each week to our local ice rink on a Saturday morning to skate for an hour. Boo has an amazing time and is always talking about skating and how much fun she has.
So my husband and I decided that it would be a great idea for us to use some of the money Boo was given for her birthday by relatives to buy a pair of her very own ice skates. I was so happy when I found these ones, they are adjustable by 4 sizes (so they should last more than five minutes) and there are flashing lights in the heels too. What more could we ask for?!
As you can see from the photos (I couldn’t bring myself to just share one this week as I loved them all) she is incredibly happy with her new skates and she couldn’t wait to get out on the ice!

She had a great time skating round on her new skates, she looks so tiny and so grown up all at the same time out there on the ice with her flashing new skates!
You can see the rest of my #LivingArrows photos from this year here.
I can’t believe it’s been nearly two months since my last Pain Management Session. It feels like I have been so busy in the mean time that it’s just flown by. But then Christmas and the New Year are always manic. Since my last session I have been to see the Physiotherapist (that was mid December) and last week I had my ‘Pain Management review’ which is a short meeting with the lead Occupational Therapist and the Physiotherapist to see how we are getting on and if we have managed to put any of the strategies in place from the course.
