Happy New Year!

Now, I don't have resolutions, I have promises. This is where I promise myself things that I hope to do this year; then if I do break those promises I know it's something bigger than a resolution. So, I've got a few promises I'm going to write down to make sure I have done by the end of the year. 

1. Get another tattoo. 

I'm already saving up for this one. I'm hoping to put away money for it every fortnight and make sure I have enough by April to get it done.

2. Read more books from my collection.

Now this is something I didn't do much of last year. This year, I want to get in and read more - especially in my lovely big Reading Chair.

3. Refine my home's clutter.

I've been decluttering my home over the last few years. This year, it's time to bite the bullet and give away those things that I really just don't use anymore - some of those things will be hard to let go of, but once they're gone (because they're coated in dust), I'll be feeling better that they'll be in a better home.

4. Save money for another trip.

It's been almost 20 years since my last big holiday somewhere. I'd love to just get in Little Green Machine and go somewhere and sight-see. So, I'm hoping to save the money for this too. This will be the beginning of another saving lot for me too.

5. My Garden

I have to get in and work on my garden again. It's lovely, but there are a few plants that need repotting this Winter and so I have to buy newer, bigger pots and that's something I need to budget for.

So, what are you promises for yourself this year? Some of mine are for this year, some are more for the next few years (like my holiday, but I have to start somewhere). Well, until my next post, take care, stay safe and remember, I'm always here.

  1. I had made my resolution list for an art journal swap to create. One of the things on my list has already been done. As for the rest we will see as time goes!!
