Ah, the New Year, so full of promise and a refreshed point of view. It’s funny how a small break can make your perspective skew so much. Now it’s back home, Simon is off to start his Summer School course at Otago University, the kids have made a list of what they would like to do across the next few weeks, and my theme seems to be sort-it and tidy-it. The end of last year turned into such a blur, there are definite moments I really have no memory of. I tried to make as many Christmas gifts as possible, and now I can show you a few, but it seems that in my daze I didn’t even photograph them all, or at least if I did goodness only knows where I filed them. Ah well.
Do you have any New Years Resolutions? Mine include fitness, spending more valuable time with the people I love, and working in a harder and more organised way for little minx. This year I hope to make minx a more serious business, and have started a long list of what I would like to acheive and what kind of plan I have for it. Admittedly it starts with the words “business plan”, which is about as far as my knowledge stretches when it comes to organisation, but we’ll just add that one to the Learning Curves Folder and see what happens. Add to that, I am going to up my reading challenge this year from 12 books to 18. I love the excitement of a fresh start.
