A bit here, a bit there.

Looks like I have been very neglectful. There I was, full of good intentions to write this blog and keep it going, yet within weeks I have wandered off and been distracted.

It’s a busy time – we thrust our way through Christmas, partied, celebrated, indulged and imbibed. We spent a fortune and gained weight. New Year came at us and passed by in a haze of good will. And here we are, here it is, January.

It’s the start of a new year, it should be a time of positivity and forward thinking. We make deals with ourselves to be better, improve ourselves and our lives. And then, by week two or three, the majority of us have failed.

Well – I have promised myself I will get back on track with my diet – and I am struggling. I have promised myself I will do my coursework – and I am failing to push myself to do it. I intended to update this blog weekly – and, well, enough said. Luckily, I didn’t make too many promises, since there is only so much I can *not* do in any one month.

On the other hand, let’s consider the accomplishments. I have been looking for a new job, I have at least started my course, albeit slower than I intended, I have almost singlehandedly planned a wedding, honeymoon and hen night (hey, who am I kidding – it was completely singlehandedly), I have managed our home and cuddled the kids.

You know what – I think it’s all just coming along nicely.

A Mini bit of progress

I have a Mini Countryman. I did the research. I peered at other cars. I searched for something that was practical for a cost effective family of four but still looked and felt fun and wasn’t the size of a …

Preparing for my mid-life crisis

Holidays are where the family are.

Gosh – isn’t it hot! (Of course, by the time I post this I expect the heatwave will have passed and we’ll all be wrapped once again in blankets mourning the British summertime.) It’s beautifully sunny. Botboy is away with …

Letting it all hang out

Wow – it’s empty in here. Almost a year since I last tapped out some thoughts on the keyboard – and to be honest I am still unsure whether I want to come back in or not. What’s happened to …
