So it is the 3rd of January, a brand new year and do I have any resolutions? Well, no. I don't intend to make resolutions which you can break and then feel bad about. What I intend to do is have goals. I want to go out for a walk every day, even if it is only for 10 minutes, to get some fresh air and exercise. I will use Map My Walk to record each walk and I started yesterday as I didn't think of this goal until yesterday!
I have signed up to the GoodReads book challenge to read 30 books this year, which I should find easy as I have a voracious appetite for books! The first one I am reading is Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantel and I also have The Book Thief by Markus Zusak lined up as Penny has recommended it and the film is out in February. I also have Death in Cyprus by MM Kaye on order from Amazon as I have recently re-read this series but didn't have this one!
So are there any other goals? Well, the most important one, which can't actually be recorded is to make more time as a family. Hugh and I have booked a weekend to spend in Reading with Ben and Rachel. We are also spending a weekend with Penny in Canterbury and have a week booked in a cottage in Wales with Penny, Ben and Rachel. I want to go over to Hemel more often to see my Mum and Dad and to visit more with Pippa and her family. I had such a wonderful, heartwarming Christmas with my family that it has made me realise that they are more important than anything and I want to enjoy their company and make the most of every minute with them.
So those are my intentions for the year. Are you making resolutions or goals? Do you find that you stick to them? Let me know!
