Starting back to work today was not as arduous as I expected. “Don’t meet trouble half way” – Bibi @bibibaskin

Watching a still grey heron in winter light beside the Shannon river at Westfields wetlands, Limerick on my daily walk – Patricia @pbyrnewrites

I only had ONE chocolate biscuit today and I am, for the first January in nine years living in a nappy-free household – Anne @galinwellies

Just chopped up a metre cube bag of wood for the stove, completely whacked after all that fresh air and exercise, also delighted for Saoirse Ronan – Sorcha @QuirkyCakes

Pink tinted skies in the morning . . . bit of a stretch in the evening (just minutes but we’ll take that thanks, come on Spring). Still piles of choice Christmas book gifts to read – Ellen @eonkerry

Soup is making me happy. Just made spinach, kale, onion, garlic with barley. Scrumptious! Time-out soup – Breda @bstacey29
