Happy New Year! (+ obligatory resolutions)

Happy New Year!

Welcome to the world of tomorrow!  Isn't the future awesome?

Everyone makes a slew of New Years Resolutions, don't they?  I always wonder how those go over the year... Do many (if any) of us actually accomplish them?  Well, last year I resolved to keep being awesome, and that definitely worked out well!  It's a shame that awesomeness doesn't extend to pesky little things like housework, though.

But I digress...

In past years I've made NYR.  A lovely laundry list of everything that was wrong with me that I wanted to fix.  Lose weight, get fit, be more social, learn about this whole make-up/hair/being girly thing, have a show home, paint my toenails every Tuesday, learn Italian...the works.  But none of it ever happened, because it turned out that those resolutions?  They were just wishes.  There was no timescale, no thought of how I was going to make these magical transformations happen, no SMART goals.

This year, I am going to become more organised.  There are a number of different reasons for this, ranging from the "I don't want to be tumble-drying school shirts at 0810 on a Monday morning," through to "I'd eat healthily if there were healthy snacks/easy meals in the fridge," "I could have sworn I had some cinnamon in the larder," and "I can't find the lottery ticket and we've won millions!!"

I'm going to start by spending the rest of January following The Organised Housewife's 20 Days To Organise and Clean Your Home Challenge.  (The random stuff everywhere after Christmas is bothering me, and I've got quite the tolerance.)  Once I've finished that, and the house is decluttered, organised, and gleaming, I'll reassess things.  I've been wilfully disorganised for years, so I imagine that this is going to be quite the project!

Happy New Year, everyone!!

(I'm still going to keep on being awesome, though!)

  1. I can't imagine you not being awesome, really.
    I understand that about wishes. Once, years ago, my resolution was to make a million dollars. Needless to say, it didn't happen. Not only that, because I'm a big dreamer and believer of things happening to hard workers..well..I didn't work! I had no idea how to achieve that floppy resolution.
    Anyway. Here's to 2014!

  2. Happy new year lovely! I definitely would like to be more organised too, I'm working on doing things when I think of them and not putting them off until I forget about them ;)

  3. Happy New Year, and I agree, organised resolutions are by far the most likely to succeed! Good luck x

  4. Happy New Year lovely lady! Being organised is a great resolution - it can be interpreted either small or large but either way, you can still say you kept it at the end of the year! :-) xx
