New year, new project

I was reading the Sunday newspaper when I came across an article about New Year's resolutions. I can't remember the name of the lady who wrote the article but she made the point of saying that when we make our resolutions they can be quite demoralising from the start, so in 2010, instead of making a traditional resolution for the year she decided to write out a list of things she wanted to achieve by the end of December. Juggling was on the list, as was learning to run. I have decided that this year I to am going to make a list of things I would like to achieve or learn in 2011. There are 12 months in the year so I have 12 things on my list...

1. Learn how to make a patchwork quilt.
2. Make a perfect macaroon.
3. Learn how to use a sewing machine.
4. Keep the blog going for the whole year.
5. Go swimming every week no matter how cold it is outside!
6. Get my Brownie sleepover licence.
7. Talk to my sister at least once a week. (She lives too far away.)
8. Experiment more in the kitchen.
9. Spend more time with the people who make me happy.
12. Smile more.

I have left 10 and 11 blank on purpose to give me a bit more thinking time. The other 10 were easy as some are things that I have wanted to do for a while and by committing them to paper and to this blog I will feel more compelled to do them.

Good night
