I find it hard to get going at this time of year with the cold, the rain, the dull days and the short amount of daylight. How I wish sometimes I could hibernate under a duvet and come out only when the first ray of warm spring sunshine hits a tulip.
However that is the beauty of New Years. The clean slate, the new start. I was going to write a post about how I don’t have resolutions and that I don’t believe in making statements like ‘I wont eat rubbish anymore’ or ‘I will be organised’ but I can see that I am already gearing myself up for a new start.
I tidied up my fabric cupboard two days ago and was shocked at how much I had so much so I’m going to be giving some fabric bundles away on Button Patch . I have also bagged up unwanted clothes to take to a charity shop, tidied up toys and cleared away some of the Christmas decorations. It just seems the best thing to do. To get busy.
I hope to get busy with this blog too in 2013. I am aiming to do the following:
- write a blog posts a week
- write a regular monthly children’s book review
- include more family recipes
- more hints and tips on how I amuse 3 children under 6 years old.
Not the most lengthy list but I heard someone say the other day that their plan was to do little, well. So instead of doing lots of things in an average way I would like to do these 4 things the best I can.
With my family and for myself I have only one true aim for 2013.
That’s it. Be kind to my family, friends and to myself.
Happy New Year to you all. I look forward to sharing 2013 with you.
