Dear Mummy, we’ve been in that period from Christmas to New Year and we’ve got cabin fever. Bad.
The weather is stormy and we’re stuck indoors with only food to keep us company.
Well, that’s a lie. We’ve got the telly and all my Christmas toys to keep us occupied. We managed to make a break for it on a couple of days when the weather wasn’t as bad so I could meet up with some of my friends and road test one of my new presents from my grandparents (daddy wasn’t so amused chasing after me!).
However, all the days seem to be rolling into one and before we know it’s the 4th January and time to go back to nursery. Time to resume the daily grind and routine.
January can be a miserable month, short on cash, feeling sluggish and not getting enough fresh air can lead to cabin fever.
We’ve tried nearly everything to elevate the feeling of boredom in our household but it’s hard not to climb the walls with a crazy toddler full of energy.
This is what we’ve done to keep me occupied over the last couple of days while the UK has been battered by storms.
Indoor camping and stories around the campfire. I spent a great deal of time in my bedroom playing with my soft toys. Telling them stories about the ‘Sea Witch’ – my imaginary adversary.
Dressing up. I enjoyed dressing up as Cinder-Bella and had a princess tea party with my cousin.
Painting. Keeping the Cinderella theme going my mummy downloaded some Princess colouring-in templates from Pinterest for me to paint.
We had fun chilling out in front of the telly watching back 2 back Disney princess films under our duvets.
Spending quality time with mummy and daddy has been fun and I’ve kept them on their toes!
I think it’s ok to have some downtime once in a while….but I can’t wait to get back to normality and routine again.
I’m a bit fed up with days in pyjamas!
What have you been up to recently, have you braved the weather and been outside?
Love Bella x
