I know it’s not quite 2015 yet but my weeks always run Sunday to Sunday so I want to start thinking about what I want to do in 2015.
I read quite a few blogs and one of the things which I have enjoyed reading is the various attempts at doing 52 projects in the year but I haven’t noticed anyone crowing that they managed the full fifty two. If you can tell me of any I’d love to know. (Since I’ve written that I’ve googled and found a site called 52projects.com and I shall explore that.)
The reason I want to get a few projects is actually to do with frugality. In the post-Christmas season I am very aware that there were several Christmas presents which were planned but time ran away with me so substitutes had to be bought and that is somewhat wasteful. I’ve never got around to making a store cupboard inventory (or a craft inventory) so I waste my precious cash buying duplicates. A good declutter combined with an eBay listing session would boost the coffers. You get the idea. I’m going to do some more thinking about this.
And whilst I’m here I want to remember the three special habits which I have managed to establish during 2014. First I have managed to lose just over a stone in weight. I’ve always been a yoyo dieter, managing often to lose three or four stone but then putting it back on. This stone has come off as the result of minor changes to my diet and probably has a better chance of staying off.
Secondly I have established a pattern of Sabbaths. This hasn’t happened every week but it is part of my lifestyle now, like those minor dietary changes. Again like the eating changes, I haven’t beaten myself up or given up when I’ve failed to make that precious time.
And thirdly I have started a blog. In fact I overdid it. I actually have two blogs!
