Happy New Year!

Okay, so it is a little late but I really do wish you all the very best for 2014. I hope it’s happy, healthy and full of fun, new adventures and laughter.

So…….million dollar question…..have you made any resolutions?! I usually avoid them were possible because, let’s face it, they’re a pain! Why, unless you have determination of steel, put yourself up to fail and feel bad? So, how about this for a more positive idea for 2014….

Think of a wonderful thought.....any merry little thought...

Yup, a special jar just to keep note of your happy thoughts, things that have made you smile, laugh or just tickled your fancy (oo-er! Lucky you!). I can’t claim to have come up with the idea as it was floating around on Facebook, but I think it’s a great idea. The idea is that you keep adding to these notes all year and then on New Year’s Eve take them out, reflect on the year and hopefully have a bit of a chuckle at the happy memories. Sounds good doesn’t it? No pressure to do it day after day, just when the fancy takes you. Good use for a Kilner Jar too! I’ve delivered one to my mum so she can do the same. As you can see I have several (leaf shaped) notes in mine already whereas mum has added a couple of objects and is intending doing longer messages rather than just sketchy notes like me! I think I’ll probably print out a couple of photos and add them as well. When I run out of leaf post it notes, I can always use these great “toast-it” notes!

Tasty!

Tasty!

Here are a couple of photos of my happy memories so far this year to inspire you to perhaps take a leaf out of my book (or out of my jar!) and give it a go yourself.

My nephew couldn't blow his "tooter" properly but sat there quite happily making the "right noise" while we were all being daft!

Lovely sight on 2nd January - a break in the rain and storms and signs of spring to come!

    • Thank you! Been a couple of days since I put anything in….Must remember not to leave it in strong sunlight or may have nothing to read in December! Gromit is gorgeous isn’t he? A prezzie from a very lovely friend. Reminds me of fun we had in Bristol last year chasing around after the brilliant Gromits there :o)
