Welcome to 2018 🙂 This is the year I give this a proper go. I enjoyed writing the few posts I did up until April 2017 and then life took over so much of my time and I just did not have anytime to write, hike, take photo’s etc or so I tell myself. Maybe I just didn’t know what to write, or who was reading. Hi Mum-in-Law! Therefore I lost the umph.
This year my main resolution I would like to focus on is ME. I want to find the time to do the things I love – hiking, music, crafts – whilst still working! I am currently working 3 jobs, all which I love but it does cut into my time by quite a lot.
Friends are so important to me, and I miss them all so very much. In the last couple of months I’ve discovered the app Marco Polo and it has been a life saver! I love seeing my friends and their children’s faces almost daily! My best friend here in Seattle brought me the most beautiful note cards for Christmas so I am looking forward to sending snail mail throughout the year to my nearest and dearest!
I’m aiming to walk and run the year 2018, 2,018 miles in one year. This works out to around 5.5miles or 11,000 steps per day. I’ve got a couple of posters which I can fill in as I go, plus an online tracker to see what I do daily. Thank you Fitbit! I have gone back to tracking my steps. I’ve got a lovely personal trainer who is going to help me get back into running in an healthy way, good running form but also good nutrition. Through this I hope to get back into climbing. That is a really good date night, plus used to end with getting a pizza slice or two 😀
I love my crochet and knitting projects – anyone need a baby blanket or nice newborn set?! I have a
few couple – and my planners and paper crafts so I am trying to find time to fit those in as well. All in moderation I think.
I’m trying Project 365 again this year. One year I’ll complete it I’m sure! In January I am going to simply take a photo a day, but then from February I think I’ll have a look at photo prompts.
I liked the idea I had of tracking my hikes last year on a map, taken from Pedalling to Patagonia, and I’m going to do that again. New map will be up soon because we started our new year with a hike up to Poo Poo Point which is where a certain McDreamy had his house *swoon*
Without further ado, the year has started, Hubster is at his piano lesson and I’m listening to 2 cats wailing for food even though their bowls are full, therefore I’ll sign off and tidy up the blog to restart.
