Welcome in the #JanuaryJoy

Happy New Year readers!

I gave some serious thought to doing January Joy this year… it’s the third year now and a lot has changed in that time here on the blog. I wasn’t sure I could commit to a regular daily post anymore so thought I might have to let it go, but I know so many of you enjoy it and I do myself – I just love the possibilities of a New Year. So I’m going to do it differently this year…

I usually blog about 3 or 4 times a week now so there are 13 prompts. That’s enough for 3 per week and one for good measure. You’ll notice there are no numbers so you are free to pick and choose which prompts you do when, working through them as January progresses. I think this might work better for lots of you as it means you can plan a family day out at the weekend when work isn’t an issue and also use the weather to your advantage. There’s nothing better than a Sunday lunch with friends or family when the weather is cold outside, or a walk on a crisp sunny day. And if you can’t or don’t want to get through them all then that’s fine. January Joy is about embracing the New Year, a spirit of optimism and joy for life, so just fit it around yours.

  1. i love January Joy! I love New Year and new starts. I have great optimism when you can start afresh with something new and never look back! So here goes and I can’t wait to see what everyone else does πŸ™‚

    Thank you for this πŸ™‚

  2. I love January Joy. I’m normally rubbish at it though, so I think this year will work much better for me. I’ve already started on a few. πŸ™‚ Happy New Year Rebecca.

  3. I absolutely love this!! I can’t pretend I’ve managed everything i previous years but I genuinely started getting excited after Christmas knowing (hoping!) that this was coming. It’s bloomin hard with a small person but I’ve just briefed him that we’re in this together! Roll on new beginnings….. x

  4. I’ve loved reading the January Joy posts in the past but there was no way I could stick to daily tasks. Love the new relaxed format and I’m going to have a go at completing at least some of these!
