Happy New Year...

I do hope all of you see the new year safe and sound.
2013 was a good year for me...
I completed and passed my course, got myself a job that I am loving and graduated as well.
Master T turned 11 and he is growing into a lovely young man
We went to Disney Paris and love it
My sister came to visit for 4 whole weeks and it was wonderful having her round
My brother and his girlfriend came to visit
2013 is also the year I became an aunt. I haven't had a chance to go visit my little nephew but will be going down in February when I have some time off.
It might not seem like much but the above has made me so happy. If 2014 is half as good as 2013 I will be a happy bunny.
2014 is nearly upon us and I have a list of resolutions/goals that I would love to complete. Most of them are the usual lose weight, b good with my finances blah, blah. blah. You know the rest. If I could summaries what my resolutions/goals for 2014 are I would say to take back my life. If I manage to do this I am sure everything else that is not covered under that will just fall into place.
Over the last few years I have stopped doing the things that I love. The things that make me me were overtaken by studying, placements and work and just trying to juggle all the other general life stuff. At the moment I have no other commitments apart from work and daily living so I am very hopeful that I can somehow start doing the things I love.

Making Plans...

I am sure at this time of the year everyone has the same thing on their mind, that thing being new year resolutions. I am naturally an unorganised person but I am trying. Because I am so unorganised I never seem to have any resolutions and when I do I never see them through. At the moment I am taking time to think about what I would like to achieve in 2014. When I make up my mind about it I am going to try my damn hardest to achieve them. I am sure I will come up with some unrealistic goals but I am sure their is no harm in dreaming.
I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and are looking forward to 2014.

Stay safe and enjoy the holiday.

An Update...

Thank you Kezzie and Scarlet for your best wishes for my graduation. I had an absolutely fabulous time and loved it but by Wednesday all the excitement had worn off and had to come down to earth. Unfortunately none of my family could make it due to other commitments but they shared in all my excitement and they all made sure to tell me that I had made them proud. It's times like these I am glad of modern technology because we were constantly whatsapping and skyping all day.
Now that the excitement of graduation is over I might as well start looking forward to Christmas. I have bought everything for Master T including the DVD we will be watching on Christmas eve. I just need to buy a present for my secret santa at work and complete 2 hampers for my friends and that will be it apart from some food.
Have you completed all your Christmas shopping.
Hope you have all had a good day.

Goodbye November...

...hello December.
November was a good months (not that all the other months aren't), but for some reason I just feel as if I was paying more attention this month. I have written lists for all the things that I needed to do. Unfortunately I haven't been blessed with the gift of organisation or memory for that matter. I am not am not a natural list maker even though I have wished so much that I was. It has taken a lot of will to write things down. Having a pretty notebook and colourful pens has definitely helped.
My list making wasn't just for the things I need to do but it extended to my shopping list. I have tried many times before and failed to stick to a shopping list. I either leave it at home or I just abandon it completely and shove things in the basket. In November if it wasn't on the list it never made it in the basket. I used the mantra do I need it, will I use it and is it worth it. I can tell you it helped. I hope this is a sign of things to come.
Anyway enough about that. I am graduating tomorrow. Yay!!! I never thought it would happen to me of all people. I have worked my socks off for the past 3 years and it has paid. I have a job that I trained for and I love it (it's only been 2 months) and I think I made the right decision going on this career path.
On to more good news, I opened my sealed pot today thanks SFT and had £156.70 which I will use very wisely.
I hope you have all had a relaxing weekend like I did.
