It’s time for my annual back to reality blog!
This year, getting back to reality has been a little different for me because I now have a ‘proper’ job to go back to as well as the various freelance projects I’m juggling. I won’t lie – this felt a little overwhelming on Tuesday – but I soon got back into the swing of things!
I’ve always seen Christmas as a time to switch off, wind down, recharge and put a full stop at the end of the year. And 2016 was definitely a year that needed a full stop. I knew that I had some work to do over the break, but I had planned simple things that would still allow my brain to go into low power mode for 10 days!
I mentioned in a previous blog that 2016 wasn’t my favourite year ever. And it really managed to throw a few more niggley things at me in the last couple of weeks…the clicky thing on the oven broke, I accidentally defrosted the freezer, the washing machine sprung a leak, I had a really bad cold (followed swiftly by another bad cold), and Princess Leia…. it was just a crap end to a crap year! So the only way to respectfully mourn the passing of 2016 was to watch Charlie Brooker and eat chocolate in pyjamas.
I can’t tell you how excited I am to have a shiny new year ahead! I’m really enjoying the Moody Blanket Knit-along and loving seeing your squares too. I’m working on an exciting new project this year…I will tell you more in a few months, but other than that – my goals for this year are based around doing less, taking one day at a time, being realistic and looking after myself.
Wishing you all a very healthy and happy new year! x
