New Year's Resolutions

Usually I don't bother.  They're something that you chat about, make a joke about - "oh yes, that'll be one of my resolutions" but in reality are vacuous statements that you have about as much chance of still doing in February as seeing that flying pig.

This year, however, I have some things that I want to do next year.  Some things that are feasible - that I have a good chance of achieving so I am going to record them here, in that hope that in 12 months time I can do another post - a post entitled "Which of my New Year's Resolutions did I achieve" and be able to blog that I did them all!

1. Make this blog better! Customise it, make it recognisable and easy to use. Make it enjoyable for people to read so they will come back!

2. Write the short stories I have the ideas for.  Get them written and get at least one submitted to be published somewhere

3. Go on another couple of courses with a view to developing skills to help with the business.

4. Take a photograph a day for the next year.  I started this in 2009 and got to September then didn't manage any more.  This year I'm determined to find my mojo and make a better fist of things.

Wish me luck and I'll keep you updated!

A shiny new blog for a shiny new year

Well I'm obviously cheating as this isn't quite a shiny new year but I have a spare half an hour, the child is occupied with her mountainous haul of Christmas gifts, I have a coffee and here I go! 

I actually started this blog in February 2010, but then life got in the way but I am determined that this year I'm going to blog at least once a week!

What am I going to blog about?

Or rather what am I not going to blog about! You will be subjected to my ramblings on a variety of subjects from parenthood ramblings to sport, from books I'm reading to things that have irritated me this week, from crafting to reports on what I'm writing.  It may bore you, I'm hoping it will interest you but in the main this is something for me - and I intend at this time in 2011 to be able to look back and read a full year of blog posts!

Enjoy, feel free to comment and keep reading me!
