So here goes 2013… Happy New Year!
Last year (it always feels strange saying that so early into the new year) was busy. Not just with the Jubilee, Olympic and Paralympic celebrations, but I lost 3 stone, we got married, we honeymooned, my nephew turned 1 and we had some fabulous times with friends and family. After such a busy year, I’m caught pondering what 2013 will bring.
I try not to make resolutions as I have an increasingly common habit of not fulfilling them, despite my best efforts. Ok, I lie – last year, I suck with the weight-loss; well it was for my wedding and making sure I could get into my dress. It went a little AWOL when we returned from honeymoon and I have enjoyed Christmas. So, there’s a little weight to loose again and yes, I’m going into Weight Watchers mode for a couple of months, which means the running shoes are coming back out again. If you fancy joining me over at WW I’m “Lou_Cupcakes”, as I’m not going to bore you on here with all that sort of thing.
Amongst all the plans we have for this year, the main one is really finishing off our home; that comes under Ian’s domain but a little direction from me always helps. We’ll have been here for 3 years in September, and we’re just about there. This means that I have to have one of those new year clear-outs. It might take me until this time next year, but we’ll see how we go.
Finally, I am going to take time away from cakes in my spare time. Fear not, not all my time will be away from baking, I’m just curious to see if I can be crafty-makey with a needle and thread. There’s so many creative people that pop up in my Twitter timeline, I am in awe at their skills. I do not think for the remotest moment that I’m going to turn into a craftwork goddess over night; I can’t sew for one thing or even know where to start (I once attempted to take up trousers when I was 18 with a 3 inch, triple folded-over hem!), but I would just like to give it a go, and if I can at least hem a pair of trousers by December, then it’s been a success.
What are your New Year resolutions for 2013?
