Happy New Year to you all, hope 2010 brings you peace and happiness. We had a very quiet New Year and were only up at midnight as The Baby Brother woke us up at 5 to midnight! We watched some fireworks from the top floor window and also saw about 100 of those floating lantern thingies that have some sort of little candle in them. It looked like a very atmospheric alien invasion!
I can hardly believe I've been blogging for 3 years, when I started at Christmas 2007 I wondered what I'd find to write about and here I am many posts later still recording our lives and my inspirations. Thanks so much to everyone who visits and comments, the friends and community I've found here have been so important as life as a stay at home Mum can be a bit isolating. To find so many wonderful people with the same passions and interests as me has been amazing.
Domesticali posted the other day about the 365 project and I thought I'd do it, taking a photo each day seems like a good way of doing something everyday just for me, learning how to use my camera ( which has been on my goal list for the last 2 years) and an encoragment to notice things more.
Ali also mentioned Tumblr, and like a stalker or that girl in Single White Female I went to have a look at that too! It's a place to collect lovely pictures, so as someone who has a box full of pictures torn from magazines and a folder on the pc full of inspiration pictures it seemed perfect for collect more pictures of lovliness. Having been French Knots here, on flickr , Etsy and delicious for years I was gutted to find someone had nabbed that name a couple of months ago on Tumblr! So I'm Flora McFlimsy instead! Did you read the books when you were little? I still have them upstairs wonderful pictures and sweet tales. And worth a fortune it seems from the search I did to find you a picture! Too lovely to sell though! I'm looking forward to exploring Tumblr and building up a collection of amazing pictures and quotes.
I don't make resolutions as they are always broken by the end of the first week of January but I like a few goals to guide me. I love the start of the year, blank and waiting to be filled with whatever we wish, a new start and a fresh opportunity.
I never got round to learning to crochet last year ( something to do with a new baby perhaps?!) so that's one for this year. I also want to work on myself, my health and fitness. I've not really bounced back from having The Baby Brother and have splitty nails, eczema and odd low level niggles so I want to boost my immunity and general well being. Healthy eating and less wine would be a good start I'm sure......well one the Christmas Quality Street and been finished!!
