goals. thoughts. aspirations.

I’ve never kept a New Years resolution in my life. Never ever.
So I’ve sort of gotten to the point where I don’t bother making any in anticipation of failure.
But I’ve decided, a week too late that perhaps I will make a few goals, or at least jot down a few thoughts for this year. They’re mostly the same things I hope for every year, and mostly things that don’t really get to a point where I can tick them off, more things that I will work on forever.

*Not to gain weight. Ideally I’d like to lose another 6 kilos, bringing me to the middle of my healthy weight range. But I will be happy to just not gain.

* To eat and cook better food. I want to get enthused about cooking again. I want us to eat more vegetables, less meat and certainly less baked beans or spaghetti on toast! I want to start really cooking again rather than just throwing things onto a plate.

* To spend less time online. My life long ambition that for some reason I just cannot manage.

*To communicate more. Especially in ‘real life’. I want to send more cards, write more letters. Make more parcels. But I also want to actually reply to e-mails, espcially toast related ones, which lately I really haven’t been doing at all. (sorry.)

*Sew, sew ,sew. Start sewing at a decent pace again. Stock Dandylion. Do craftwerks. Give the website a bit of a break and focus on loval and national sales and becoming more ‘known’.

*Pay off my computer.

*Be a nicer, happier person.

*To be honest.

Wish me luck, I have a feeling I’m going to need it if I don’t get out of this emotional ‘rut’ soon. I really feel like I’m not achieving anything at the moment and life just sort of passes me by without me finding the motivation or energy to do any of the things I want to do in a day. I’m trying so hard not to spew all my problems all over everyone, but if I’m being honest I’m not really coping too well.
So thank you so, so much for your comments on my very sporatic blogging, and your beautiful e-mails (which I need to reply to.). It really means a lot to me.
I really hope this year is better than the last one.

It’s nice to see such honesty on a blog, so no more apologising! It makes me feel better to see that I’m not the only one trying to find my feet. Share away 🙂

Honestly, life with little children feels like that, and as soon as they’re a bit older you suddenly find your feet again.

You’ve had lots of big changes, and I know it is no help, but everything improves with time.
