Keep it Simple
Hello again, I hope you all had a good Christmas and a good start to the New Year! I haven't made any new year's resolutions as I know they don't work for me. Like diets. You put me on a diet and I'm raiding the cupboards. You tell me not to buy anything and I'm hitting that online button. So I'm setting my bar a little lower and I'm keeping it simple like drinking a little more water (this is harder than it sounds for me - I am the Queen of the Earl Grey scene), walking a little more (if I can drive, I will) and not overthinking things. Sometimes you can get yourself in a tizzy over nothing and it's only a big deal to you and for that moment of time. A good night's sleep and nothing ever looks as bad I think. My family always liked the fact that as a child I could stomp off to my room, slam a door (not too hard though) and fall asleep and then reappear a couple of hours later like nothing had happened. It's called moving on.
And I've made a few little changes to the blog - a change is as good as a rest they say. Nothing too major but just a few tweaks like I've now got my Instagram feed showing on the side bar so you all know what I'm wittering on about when I'm all "IG this" and "IG that". And a blog archive should you want to try and look back on any of my old posts. I've been meaning to do this since Christmas 2014 so it's only taken me a year to get round to it and I have to give a little mention to Kotryna who helped me with this. If anybody is feeling that they would like a fresh start on their blog, do pay her a visit.
And last but not least, I'm going to do the 365 day Penny Challenge as seen on Vikki's IG feed.
You basically get a jar, preferably a big one and on the 1st of January, you put a penny in it. On the 2nd of January, you put 2p in it. On the 3rd of January ... you get the idea. At the end ... you should be £667+ richer without feeling it too much. Last thing! Don't forget to make yourself a little chart (like this one) so you can track yourself! It will make for a nice Christmas 2016!
