New Year is here and like the rest of the planet I have been THINKING about making some resolutions. Notice I use the word THINKING!
Christmas time has been a pretty good time and I have been eating various snacks and treats which I wouldn't normally choose. I am now back on my diet so I will aim to eat healthier in 2011, attending Slimming World each week. Quite a few of the classes were cancelled due to the bad weather, but come Wednesday 5th I will be there. I would think there will be quite a few new members!!!!
I want to do something new. THINKING alond the lines of sewing!!!! THINKING remember! I have a couple of sewing machines - one is a really good one which I bought from a tabletop sale at a local residential home. An absolute bargain - but have I used it? No! Do I KNOW how to use it properly? No! However I KNOW somebody who DOES so I just MAY have a word with my friend and neighbour Margy!
2011 is a very significant year for me as I am taking my early retirement agreement. The Teacher's Pension scheme is one of the better ones and the current financial mess regarding pensions makes me rather nervous of future developments and plans - so I am taking mine on my 55th birthday! Yes I will loose a small % of the lump sum but the annual pension will equal this out and a bit more in the 5 years before I reach 60!
We will have been in our house for 20 years, come 28th June and we need to do some repairs and updating - I am looking forward to this and it WOULD be a good learning curve for my sewing development! Jon is a wizz with DIY so it would be a good joint project! Hmmmm yes, I like the sound of that!
2011 then - I will have 3 basic aims:-
1. Not to use any plastic carrier bags and to really cut down on packaging.
2. Eat healthily.
Anybody else making any plans?
