I am feeling all reflective today. Is that the correct word as it sounds like I am wearing mirrors or something which I'm not of course. I am looking back on the year that has just gone and have been reflecting of what I have and haven't achieved. We all make resolutions and most of us fail to even try to stick to them let alone actually do what we promise ourselves we will do. My resolutions are usually pretty standard. Do more of this thing, do less of that, eat less, exercise more blah blah blah. Well on the whole I haven't done any of them! Oh I did join the gym and I have lost weight, I have also gained it again so that perhaps doesn't count.
I will however make my list of new year resolutions again today and this time I am going to go easy on myself and make a more general list. Maybe "try to eat healthy meals" would be a better resolution. "Go to the gym twice a week" would be achievable, "blog once a week", "concentrate on one or two projects at a time", I think I could stick to those kind of resolutions and instead of trying to be a saint all the time just be a bit of a saint when time allows and stop worrying when things go wrong maybe.
I did manage to get all my Christmas presents finished on time though which was a major achievement and something I was definitely proud of achieving.
I made Steve's Nanna this scarf and hat which I hope she liked. I don't usually get any feedback and I will probably never know. I made her a gorgeous applique bag last year and for all I know she could have put it in the bin.
So as you can see I was extremely busy during the Christmas build up. I enjoyed actually finishing things which is something of a novelty for me. I realised that I prefer making small things better than the usual cardigans and blankets I am known for so maybe that should be a resolution too, to make smaller projects in the coming year.
Who knows what we will all have achieved one year from now and on that note all that is left to say is
"HAPPY NEW YEAR" xx
