I start as I mean to go on in 2013 so my first blog post of the year is a creative one. I found the pastels that I hadn’t used for years and decided to put them to good use even if what I display here is a little rushed and scruffy. I’m discovering my creative side all over again and it excites me so from now on I should have some form of artwork to accompany some of my blog posts.
I woke up this morning feeling happy and positive knowing that I already have some fabulous plans for this year. I experienced yet another peaceful new years eve in with the parents watching Graham Norton and the amazing fireworks display on t.v. I surprised myself last night by pouring myself some Baileys and refusing it after 3 sips. If some of you remember rightly, in a previous blog post entitled ‘A Moment in Time’ I stated that I’d be giving up alcohol completely. Those 3 sips of Baileys is the first drop of alcohol that I have had since the end of November and the fact that I didn’t enjoy it confirms that from now on I’ll definitely be sticking to what I said in that blog post.
It’s nearly time to return to normality as I have to go back to work tomorrow. But the break has been relaxing if a little boring at times. It has given me a lot of thinking time and a chance to asses the way I write my blogs and expand my audience (if I can). So wherever you are in the world I wish you a happy and healthy new year and hope that 2013 is good to you all. I’ll leave you with this short quote… Learn from yesterday, Live for today, hope for tomorrow.
