2013 is the year for.....

..... not setting resolutions, goals, achievements, lists etc that i'll never complete. This time I've come up instead with a list of categories I'm going to try & complete each month.

to you.

My 2013 list:

Faces - who did I see?  Time spent with family & friends.

Spaces - this is mainly for the home or the campervan, our own personal space.

Places - where did we go?

Aces - what did we achieve?  This can be anything from learning something new, finishing that book that's been on your bedside table for weeks, or completing that garage clear out you've been meaning to do for years!!!

Some other ideas to think on might be:
- favourite blog find
- favourite book find
- favourite recipe find
- favourite creative project

Are you planning any lists or resolutions?

Before the year ends.....

...... I always start every year with new goals & lists of all the things I'm going to do in the new year, forgetting all the wonderful things we have actually achieved in the year just gone.

So as a reminder, as I was a particularly bad blogger this year, here's some highlights of my 2012:

I turned 40!  I invited some of my closest girlfriends for dinner & my husband cooked, served & cleared up - he was marvellous.

I got a job, which is partly why I've been a very bad blogger.  I'm loving my job.  It's food related & I spend even more time with my head in a cook book!

I discovered the lovely site - Eat Your Books - it's a wonderful site that saves me hours of searching.

My son O won the athletics cup for his age group in the summer.

My son T came off his skateboard many times (we've had a number of stitches!) but he's still smiling & boarding.

My daughter M learnt to rollerskate.

My husband learnt to make bread.

We went to Devon & the boys all surfed, my daughter learnt to body board.

I learnt to crochet, sadly there isn't enough time to crochet as much as I'd like.

I got a new camera.  We finally have some lovely photo's of the kids.

I'm sure there's lots more that I've forgotten.  But for now we look back with fond memories & look forward to many more yet to be created.......
