Merry Christmas....Next Year is just around the corner.

Merry Christmas one and all. I hope you are all enjoying the festive period!

It's coming up to the New Year and I am starting to think about my New Year aims for 2012. I didn't do too bad this year. In fact I did a lot better than I have done in previous years. Here's a recap:

1. Loose half a stone or get down to 61kg
2. Get a New Job
3. List the pile of clothes and accessories on my floor on eBay
4. Throw an awesome 30th Birthday party
5. Pay off my Graduate Loan
6. Regularly running between 5k and 10k a week
7. Learn to knit and knit my other half a scarf
8. Save up enough for a holiday
9. Complete an application and the London Marathon for Cancer Research
10. Cook two recipes from all my cook books
11. Learn how to use a sewing machine and make at least one item
12. Spend Christmas in Australia with my Dad and Andy

8 out of 12 ain't bad. I'm annoyed at myself for not completing number 1. The New Year will see me in the gym a lot more and now I have some new trainers too I will be continuing with number 6.

I still have a scarf to knit and a beginners sewing course to attend so completion of some of the others are still to be had.

But what for 2012? Apart from those not completed, what else can I do this year? I want a list of 12 again as it made it far more challenging for me. I had a couple of ideas - pay off my debts, complete the PRINCE2 qualification and sell the new pile of clothes on the floor on eBay, but what else?

There are a few items outstanding on my 28 list which I am keen to do however they feel separate from the New Year aims. Time to get my thinking cap on but if any readers have some suggestions, let me know by commenting below.


  1. I think you should do something amazing and Give Blood! I'll come with you :¬) x
