New Year Resolutions

Not that I really do them, more like aims which usually include a monthly bath, which I start off with good intentions, but by March is usually out the window.

OK that doesn't sound good, but people that know me will know that Steven cannot be left on his own and he always senses if I try and have a bath after he's in bed, (the little pickle) and with hubby away all week, I don't get the chance to have them. But don't panic I do have daily showers, as they are quick, so I don't smell, honest, lol...


2012 is a little extra special year, as our very handsome son turns 21 and our gorgeous daughter gets married, so hopefully a very Happy but a little more busier than usual one.

So with this in mind, I'm going for monthly aims, rather than over the whole year, (am hoping by breaking things into smaller chucks, I'm more likely to succeed, lol)

OK so what are they...

A bath, (seeing I had loads of lush smellies for Christmas, I really must try harder, hehehe).

some form of crafting... as I've loads of kits not used, including rug making, jewellery, as well as cards, yikes and to finish the wedding invites etc...

Scrapbooking either for myself, family or for presents, even if it's only a page a month.

will blog more and reads other people's blogs

Right, will update you in 3 months to let you know how I'm going, but saying that, you will know if I've failed on the crafting side, as plan to blog my makes, lol...

Does anyone else do resolutions or like me, aims?

Enjoy your baths, I must confess to having a soak nearly every day! I think it was Queen Elizabeth I who said she wanted to have a bath once a month, whether she needed it or not.... Hugs,

Hi Maria

I had a giggle about your bathing aim, I didn't have one since my second one was born and she is nearly six (LOL), of course I do have shower every day, hehe, love Lush stuff.

One about using up kits is good too, I have something similar in my had.

Have a nice day

Hi Maria I can identify with the bath thing, as I can't get in or out of one I haven't had one since my accident 10 yrs ago!! I do have a walk in shower but boy I'd love a bath!! It's amazing how the built in radar kicks in with kids isn't it? It's going to be a busy but happy year for you. My word is HOPE this year!! xx
