thoughts and things

The end is nigh….

*dusts off the keyboard* well! is there anybody out there? Anybody? I could be talking to absolutely nobody right now. I can’t even remember the last time I blogged.

This has been an absolutely terrible month. There has been every one of us being unwell, a bout of norovirus to finish us all off and very sadly we had to say goodbye to a family member who passed away.

It’s been shit.

Christmas was a nice little bubble away from everything. Bubs had a fab time, and that’s the main thing. We smiled and all felt well for the first time in a while. It was bittersweet but it was Christmas.

It’s a shame really, as really this year has been a good one, overall, but now I can’t wait to get rid of it. The end is nigh, the midnight bells will chime and we get to start a brand new year.

One thing I can take from this horrid month, is that you have to make the most of life. Keep your goals in sight, aim high and spend time with the people you love. Why waste a day when you won’t get it back?

I am trying to be mindful. I am trying to be in the moment a bit more. To really feel, and hear and touch. I am trying to engage my brain and do some things for me. Look after myself, and those around me.

This year, I have my resolutions, and people may pooh-pooh resolutions but I enjoy making them and focusing myself. Even if it is just for a bit.

My resolutions are to keep on losing weight, to read more books, and to do more family days out. I want to get fit and get active. I want to make sure I look after myself and have a bit of time for me, and my family.

I want to be able to say I made the most of my time.

What’s your thoughts for the new year?

  • We’ve all had non-stop coughs, colds & bugs for about a month now. Definitely ready to see the end of that! In blogging terms, 2014 has been incredible for me. And I’ve made some brilliant online friends too. Money & family have both been tough this year though. Some rough times but I feel like we’re turning a corner now. I’m looking forward to 2015. I have so many plans & there are lots of big changes coming up so I’m nervous, excited & itching to get on with it. Hope your new year gets off to a good start. I’ll be keeping an eye on you!

  • Sorry you’ve been so unwell and to hear of your loss I hope the beginning of 2015 makes up for the end of this year. I have the same resolutions as you really look after myself and those who I love xxx

  • Hi Emily, sorry to hear of your loss and that you were all poorly. I hope 2015 brings you health and happiness, and wish you success with your resolutions! Happy new year! x
