Here we are in the new year!
Do you feel that when the year changes it's a new beginning or do you perceive time as a continuation with New Year's Day being just another celebration?
I stand somewhere in between I'd say. I'm not the sort of person who would make a list of resolutions, choose a word or phrase to live by or anything like that. However, I do get inspired by other people's resolutions or goals (Cassie has a lovely list here) and words ( I love Kamana's word here).
I do spend some time thinking of what I would like to change or add to my life, though I don't make any promises to myself. It's more on a 'become-a-better-mum/wife/teacher/self' level; nothing specific.
(Well, there's just one thing I need to work harder on: schedule a very specific day and time for ironing!!! Sometimes I realise that if something unexpected happens, I won't have enough pressed clothes to pack a bag!)
How about you? Do you grab a pen and paper and jot everything down even before the new year begins or do you just go with the flow?
On a different note, our days here at home have been slow most of the time (well, apart from Christmas Eve which was hectic)-
lots of playdates for little one, a bit of shopping, a visit to the cinema with my son's friends, friends over for a glass of wine (or two...), family meals...
and... from all the chores in my list I only managed one: I had my sewing machine fixed. Yay!!!
We're going back to our remote little village on Saturday and schools start on Monday the 10th; so we still have time to see daddy and more friends.
Have a blessed 2011 everyone!
Spread some love and joy!
