Positivity and Optimism - why I love the start of a new year.

Good morning!

I am typing this post at my kitchen table on our new laptop which we treated ourselves to at Christmas. It is lovely to be downstairs typing where I can keep an eye on people coming to the door, but most importantly be near the coffee pot!

Hands up those who don't love the beginning of a new year? 

I absolutely love it because of the chance, second or maybe third, to make a fresh start. I love the optimism, positivity and energy of the new year.

Here, we are working through the house de-clutter and home organisaion and it is going really well. The charity shop has benefitted from Harry's room getting a tidy up in readiness for a new bed and school has received three good bags full of books. We still have Alfie's room to do later today and my craft things have been thinned out as I really do not do as much as I used to.

On a personal note I've begun a Journal of Gratitude combined with a daily journal. I'm enjoying this as I could never manage a full on Project Life, would not have the time, but this way I can be thankful for what I have and keep a few memories, even if it is just when the boys make me laugh, like the other morning when they were singing to a song from Despicable Me! I have also made the decision to return to Weight Watchers. I love my baking and cooking so much but it needs to take a bit of a back seat for a while, apart from making things for the boys.

I have just finished catching up on most of my backlog of #Postcircle letters - only two to go now. I am looking forward to sending and receiving more letters this year. This will be quite important to me as I plan to cancel my Twitter account soon. I have come to the conclusion, as I did with Facebook, that my life does not need social media to the extent to which it interferes with my life. Don't get me wrong, I talk to some lovely poeple on Twitter but I hope I can maintain some relaionships by post or other means, maybe even face to face, you never know, it does happen they tell me!!! Anyhow, I hope you will continue reading this blog and look out for when I decide to start new one which may be in the summer. I'll let you know herewhen this happens.

That is all for now as I have a lasagne to make for tea tonight so we are ready for the boys to start back to Judo for the first time since we finished at Christmas.

I would love to hear about your plans for January and beyond and if you arein a positive mood like me.

Hope you stop by
