Happy New Year

So, it's that time of year when we are all supposed to reflect on our lives and think about what the new year has in store for us and how we chose to live it. As always, I will make resolutions to do things rather than to give things up...

Well, without a doubt I have a big year ahead. First on the to do list is to create the foundations for the garden shed which is arriving in a couple of weeks time. This will give me space to store all the stuff that is currently in the garage, so that the garage conversion can begin at the end of January. This task will be shortly followed by the building of the chicken fence. Whilst I am sure the chooks are happy with free range of the whole back yard, I would like to reclaim a poop free area for myself, and my veggie patch (which is hopefully well feritilised by now!).

The garage conversion will allow me to move my office downstairs and convert the current office into a nursery. It will also allow me to move things like the washing machine and brush cupboard out the kitchen giving me more kitchen space. So you've guessed it, following the garage conversion comes the nursery! And if I still have the time (and the money) before the baby is born I may do the bathroom too as I think the option to have a quick shower instead of a long bath might be quite handy as a single mum!

Other things I plan to do include 
  • have an active healthy pregnancy (this means I am actually going to do the yoga, walk more, return to the pool...)
  • read all that stuff about birth that I keep putting off and be informed
  • have more regular communications with my beautiful friends, both near and far
  • blog more frequently
  • visit my God daughter, Isobella Rose, at the very latest by her Birthday in May
  • follow the January savings inspiration of my friend Rachel as far as I can (household renovations being the exception!)
  • finish my maths course
  • continue to develop own business ideas
  • spend more time on the farm
  • be a good mummy
I think that's enough!!!

I hope that 2011 brings you all good health and good fortune.
