2010..........

New Year was a quiet one for us this year and I have spent a lot of time over the last few days thinking about what 2010 is going to bring!

I am well aware that this year is going to be a huge one for us and our familys what with a baby arriving in May. But, I also thought about what I want to make a point of doing this year. It is not a huge list but I feel that it is filled with things that I WANT to do and see through.

I WANT TO BE GREENER

I really want to be less wasteful and more efficient. I want to use up leftover -all of them.
I want to use cloth nappies on the baby (I have big issues with the chemicals in disposable nappies, the cost of them and the fact that they end up in landfill).
I want to try and grow some basic veggies in our garden.
I want to use the car as little as possible.
And I want to be able to make do and mend.

I WANT TO LEARN TO SEW (properly).

This comes back to the make do and mend - I want to be able to make a top from a dress that I do not like the length of, shorten trousers etc.
Also, I want to create a fabulous home for my family and I want to start with lots of snuggly, comfy, clashing scatter cushions that I want to make myself!

I WANT A HOME THAT IS OURS AS A FAMILY.

By this I mean making the home that we own personal with colour on the walls, flowers in the garden, cushions on the sofa and a pram parked in the hallway!

I WANT TO BE AS FIT AND HEALTHY AS I CAN.

I want to make healthy meals that (eventually) we can all eat as a family.
I want to walk with the pram everyday - also makes me use the car less = greener!
I want to be fit without paying to join a gym - so walks with the dog and family days out are what I want to focus on!

I like your goals for 2010. I wish you the best, enjoy your time now, cause when the baby comes it all changes but in a good way, mine are 11 and 8 they grow so fast. Walks with the dogs are also nice, although I do not have a dog I am allergic to dogs and cats, and sometimes I secretly wish I had a dog that could walk like my neighbors.
It is always fun to read your blog and see all your beautiful pictures. Keep us posted. Thanks again for sharing your goals. Mine are here if you have time http://farrielledesignandfashion.blogspot.com/2010/01/so-2010-is-here-and-now-what-many-goals.html

You and I have the same ideas for New Year resolutions. I made the same commitment for the past two years, and it gets better each year. Best wishes for you and your BF this year BG, and for your beautiful bundle of joy on the way! : )
