I get all excited when I buy new note books, the newness of the paper and the expectation of what I will fill it with. This year I have bought a lovely project notebook with pockets. All my thoughts and ideas for the year will go in here i.e. magazine articles, paint colours, ideas for the house, crafty projects etc.
As well as planning the lists for the house and crafty projects, I really must spend some time creating my dream greenhouse. The structure is there, the bunting is up, the staging is painted. It now needs the planning of what I will grow in there this year, instead of it being the usual dumping ground! Looking back at my posts last year, I was mortified to see that I started this in July and haven't touched it since!
My kitchen window boxes also need some serious TLC. They are now completely empty and need to be filled with herbs, bulbs and flowers. Definite planning needed here! No picture as I am really ashamed of them at the moment.
I really must fill up my Pinterest board too. I just hate seeing something on the web and then forgetting where it was, I must remember to Pin It.
So the first part of January is going to be like structuring a skeleton, getting the bare bones and then the plans will eventually put the meat on them (what a saying!!).
When anything has been achieved, a large tick will be put against the item and that will give me immense satisfaction. Positiveness is a wonderful ego booster so maybe not a tick but a bright gold shiny star!!
I feel that 2013 will bring about a lot of changes in mine and my family's lives. '13' usually brings me luck.
So that is my first post of 2013 finished...shall I? Dare I??...Oh go on then...
