Ok this is it - I promise (hand on heart ) that this year will be the year of the blog ! Just don't know why I am so terrible at this writing lark, I kept a diary when I was younger for years and years and I simply love to talk so need to be focused. No more blog hopping for me and day dreaming 'why can't I do that' nope that's it. Had a sharp talk to myself (well ok did't really talk to myself because I think that's just plain daft - apologies to any selftalkers out there) and blogging as often as possible is one of this years resolutions. Here are some others :
1. Blog more (great started on that one already)
2. Stop pretending I don't eat chocolate (I do - my Gran belongs to the Mars retirement club and gets LOADS of freebies). That one's going well as I had a Lions Bar last night !
3. Stop moaning about having no money - nobody does at the moment and it bores people.
4. Wipe the drool off the pc and actually start to decorate/sew/embroider instead of being jealous of others who do.
There = not many and I think all achievable.
view from the motorway just as it started to snow
Just like rest of the UK it's been snowing here and I LOVE IT ! It makes everything so clean looking and so fresh and reminds of how I think Winter should be.
Made some snow angels with DD 2, then DD3 was freezing so after taking her back inside we all had a snowball fight, but being as highly competitive as I am I decided to get all humphy and say I'm not playing any more. Hour later had a text from a neighbour (who used to be my SIL so that's ok) who asked if I'd had fun in the snow. I somehow seemed to forget that I live in a cul-de-sac with neighbours!!!
Hope you all had a great Christmas, I did. Last year was a complete non-starter due to illness but this year was much better. Here's DD3 wearing her Christmas outfits.
Biased I know but I think she is adorable
DD1 bought me a gorgeous sewing machine a couple of years ago and it's been gathering dust but I bought these for DD3 and am going to make a start on the first one today. Haven't sewed anything since home economic classes at my all girls school in the 80's so wish me luck. So have bought a couple of patterns to get me started ----
I belong to a few forums and newest one I've found is British Mummy bloggers . I haven't set up a home page yet and just finding my way around but the number bloggers is huge. Joined the reviewers page just before Christmas and already been asked to review Green & Blacks chocolate . I hummed and hahed - should I? Oh well someone has to taste and then comment on chocolate so it may as well be me! Not really - I can't wait, eating chocolate and then writing about it how hard can it be? Will let you know xx
bye for now x
