Wishing you all a belated but heartfelt Happy New Year for 2015!
We've had a wonderful Christmas and New Year which we split between Devon and London because that's what we like to do. Spending the holidays with Bella & Bear meant the world to me. It's painful to confront how I felt spending Christmas without them (as I did in 2013) compared to the joy of the festive period just passed, particularly when I know that come Christmas 2015 I will have to suck it up when they go to their Dad's again... but it is still twelve months away so I intend to make hay while the sun shines.
With this in mind it's time to share my resolution. Initially it was my intention to buy new lingerie every month and end the year with a drawer full of gorgeous undies (and potentially a new boyfriend because I'm thinking about dating again), but as I tend to make only one resolution a year making it about knickers seems a mite frivolous.
For 2014 I resolved to cook a proper Sunday roast for my family every week and barring a few epic fails (like the time I forgot to defrost the chicken, or the time I danced the night away, drank too much wine and couldn't face standing up until 4pm the next day) it was one of the most successful new year resolutions I've ever made. I've considered why it's been so successful and have put it down to the fact that it wasn't about improving myself or changing who I am, it was about bringing our family together. It was about being happy together in our own little world.
Frankly it's a tough one to beat. So this year my resolution is to keep on keeping on. By that I mean I will keep doing the simple things that bring me and those around me joy. I'm going to continue to bring my family together but not just over food on a Sunday, I'm going to place an emphasis on time. I'm going to give my time consistently; we'll talk, play, read, walk and just BE together because to paraphrase Gene Simmons, these are my people.
So there you have it. This year will be about family, togetherness... and ok my fabulous new frilly knickers.
