I know these type of posts are boring to read, especially if your Bloglovin/Feedly account is full of them right now. And I do apologise for that.
But Im still going to indulge myself and write one! Sorry!
Last year I did a resolutions post and wrote the following –
- Keep blogging. For as long as I enjoy doing so.
- Go to Glastonbury in the camper van.
- Get the camper van through its MOT.
- Read more books. I read so little in 2012. Blame it on the distraction of the Internet.
- Broaden my baking horizons.
- Lose some weight. Hmm…. not sure how that’s going to work with #5!
- Finish as much of the house as we can.
And whoop whoop, I managed to achieve most of them! All except for no. 5 as I had to stop eating so much cake to achieve no. 6! Thats why I make easy resolutions, so I can feel a bit
smug proud a year later!
For 2014 I want to do the following –
- Read more books. I read more in 2013 than 2012, but I still do not read as many novels as I used to. I indulge in too much brain rotting internet and telly, me thinks.
- Plan meals better. Ever since we fixed up our kitchen almost 1.5 years ago (gulp) I have been a little slack with this. I need to up my organisational game.
- Do not put things off. Just get on and do it. I am a champion procrastinator (and Rob is not much better). This includes housework, work stuff and things on the to do list. So thats everything basically.
- When it comes to blogging, I want quality not quantity on here. I am not going to take part in anymore blogging everyday challenges. I want to keep on improving my photography and writing on here.
- Keep on losing weight. I lost half a stone last year (and have since put some of that back on over the Christmas period. PLEASE STOP RAINING WEATHER SO I CAN GET OUT THE HOUSE!!!) It would be nice to lose a little more. If not, no pressure, I just want to be more active with more walking, swimming and cycling.
- Bake more bread. I did not make many cakes last year, but I started to experiment with 5 minute bread with mixed results. I want to start doing it again and bake more traditional loaves too. If this fails, then bite the bullet and buy a bread maker as I hate supermarket bread, homemade tastes much better (if do I say so myself!)
- Be happy. Don’t get me wrong, I am happy with my lot right now. But In the past Ive had periods where for various reasons I have not been. It is easy to stress out, to moan and to want what you perceive other people to have. Easy, yes. But such a stupid waste of energy. I want to keep on appreciating my house, family, friends, jobs and life in general.
