So 2011 is going to turn into 2012 on Saturday evening. I found this fabulous photo on facebook. I have no idea where it came from but I wanted to share it. Such a simple but effective idea.
I'm not going to bore you with a 2011 roundup thing. If I want to know what happened at a later point I'll look back through the archives on the right hand side of the page.
I did have a few goals for 2011 but I was rubbish at keeping them is all I will say.
In 2012 I am going to try and:
Keep up with my own A to Z Discovery Challenge (see post from a couple of days ago for details). Last night I prepared a notebook with a few pages for each letter and will have it somewhere nearby for the whole year. The aim being that if any of us have an idea for a particular letter before we reach it then we will put that idea into the notebook and when the letter comes around we will try/read/do that thing.
Resume the couch to 5k running I started in September. I got to week 3 and life got in the way/I was too lazy to be bothered (delete as appropriate) so this time around I want to at least try and get beyond that point.
Decorate the kitchen and replace the cupboard doors (this was a goal last year)
Take part in a couple of craft fairs
Be a bit more organised with design team projects and not leave assignments until the very last day.
Take each day as it comes and try to stay a bit calmer when things get to meltdown point with the boys.
One last one which I have tried to incorporate for the last few weeks is to have a recipe plan for the week and make a shopping list. My grocery bills were getting ridiculous and we were throwing so much food away but since taking this step I have found it so much easier.
Happy new year everybody.
