A Fresh Start!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

As many of my friends are trying their hardest to get over their epic hangovers today, I am thankful that I gave up alcohol over a year ago and stuck to it. I had the usual quiet night in with my parents with absolutely no desire to venture out. I must be getting old. I hope everyone enjoyed the celebrations and stayed safe.

The last few days I have been preparing for 2014 by having a huge clear out. I had binned a lot of things that I had managed to horde over the years and I sorted out lots of things to take to the charity shop. Now I feel like a weight has been lifted and I can start the new year with one less thing to worry about.

I’ve started as I mean to go on by reading, although I’m finding that ‘Zombie Apocolypse’ is becoming very boring now and I’ve already started considering my next read. Not until I have completed this one of course. I’m still determined.

Here’s a quote that we can all relate to which I find quite appropriate for the start of a new year:

‘A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step’

A Chinese Proverb.
