H.N.Y…… Ha, who do I think I am? A teenager?! What I mean is Happy new year and let’s make it a good one! The last one was a good one and I want another, no, I want one better.

Resolutions?  Made any?  Do you keep them, or do you make them with a flourish, write them down and then ignore them until next year when you dig them out or turn back to the beginning of the diary (yes, this is me) and make various noises of recognition, surprise and snorts of derision at all of your first day of a new year wishes desires and motivations?

Exercise, that will be on my list I am sure. Do more, different, more regularly, more weight loss specific.

Of course another staple – loose some weight, muffin top, spare tire whichever inanimate object you no longer require around your mid section – be gone.

Eat healthily. Come on, that’s on your list for sure. Are you a cut out all sugar, fat, flour, chocolate, coffee, booze, cake, fun, joy from your diet in order to achieve the health you require? Or are you more a ‘eat more fruit and veg and maybe a glass less of wine’  kinda person?  I have to admit that I can’t diet in any shape or form. I just don’t have the will power. I did the Rosemary Conley hip and thigh diet in the 1990s for about a week and that was that. Haven’t managed a diet since. So I have to fall back on resolution number one – exercise and lots of it.

Exercise and cake it is then!  You know I like to bake, so cake is staying!

Also on my list is working on this blog which I love dearly, but  still confuses me no end. You should see my little confused face whenever I have to add a link or work on the ‘behind the blog scenes’ on brainy stuff. But work on it I shall and I shall also overcome the confused face I so often wear.

I want to knit more, I can knit, but it is a slow and painful process! I want to knit good stuff, yes I like scarves, but I want more knitted wonders and I want to make them myself.

I aim to fill my Etsy shop with beauteous things and proudly stand behind my counter and chat to my customers as they browse my cyber shop!

Sewing, I am planning some sewing, yes, I have some ideas up my sleeve keeping warm and waiting to burst out when I bring out my lovely sewing machine.

What plans do you have brewing? Big ones, small ones? Do tell.

Happy 2013 to everyone!
