New year ahead, new plans! I know it is such a cliché to make resolutions and fresh starts, but this year I am really geared up for change.
One of the things I would like is to be more organised and to make time to do the things I really enjoy doing. I bought myself a planner which I am really excited to start using. It is a Clever Fox Planner and has all sorts inside to help with achieving goals and dreams and how to be more productive. I feel this will really help me to realise what I really want in life and help with personal growth.
I am wanting to get back into being more creative and making time for that. I started doing paintings a couple of years ago which I enjoyed but I have found that parenting young children does make hobbies harder to carry out. This year I am hoping to set out times to do these activities.
I got a sewing machine earlier this year and would like to start putting that to use also! So hopefully 2021 will see a few new creative creations!
We don’t currently have a garden but do have a small patio. Our names are on the waiting list for allotments but it could be a 2 year wait! I am planning to grow as much as I can on the patio and be as inventive as possible. My husband gifted me with a subscription of Kitchen Garden magazine in the spring which has lots of great advice and also comes with 3 packets of seed with each addition. I have been collecting these and look forward to being able to use them.
In the kitchen I hope to learn more new recipes and make better packed lunches for my husband to take to work.
I mentioned in a previous post about trying to be more minimalist. This is something I definitely want to carry on with and I hope to regularly assess my possessions and decide if they are truly needed. Myself and my husband had quite a minimalist Christmas in terms of gifts as we only received a few presents, much of which were of benefit to us and obviously we are very grateful for any gift we receive.
Another of 2021’s plans is to live more environmentally friendly and in particular we want to reduce our use of plastic. The plan is to build up on storage jars and start using the local zero waste food shop.
Also I want to be able to create good experiences for my children this year and continue trying to be the best Mum that I can for my daughter and son. Another focus will be my husband, making sure that we spend quality time together and hopefully we’ll be able to have a few meals out and theatre trips later in the year.
I have lots more plans and ideas but will save those for other posts! And also I would like to be able to blog more frequently with exciting blog content. I wish all my readers a Happy New Year.
