Happy New Years, New and Old Friends!!

Happy New Year, everyone!! Wish you all a wonderful 2015, with some of your dreams come true! If not all of them.. But it's good to have some to still wish for, I've heard it can get pretty boring otherwise.

Hope you all had a lovely time, with friends, family and close ones. That it turned out the way you dreamed of and you survived the intense, festive, fun, food oriented holiday season.. Both me and hubby, have almost had two weeks vacation. It's been such a relief to both mind and body, to spend some time at home. Focusing on other things than work and the daily chores. Best thing of all we only spent 3-4 days of our vacation days, since most of the days were bank holidays here. Hurray! Looking back, I'm not even sure what we spent all these days doing. In between family gatherings and parties that is. But maybe that's what a real vacation is about. Being able to reset your mind and take it slow for a while. What I do know, is that I feel ready for new challenges and the new year to come!

On the way to the New Year's party, with our good friends. Hubby started talking about his New Year's resolutions.. Guess I'm a bit of a party pooper there. I never really believed in those. I always seems that people make them, just to break them a few weeks later. I think that real change can come at any time of the year, it doesn't have to be new years to change up your life. But maybe one trick, is to make some that you actually can keep.. After telling me his, he turned to me and asked me what mine was. Honestly I hadn't thought about it. But as a spur of the moment resolution. Was not to open a bottle of wine/beer, I don't intend to finish lol.. Hubby of course thought it was a terrible one, as he thought my intensions was to become a vino lol. A nasty, stinky, crazy vino. I can see that. Not in my gameplan for this year. Just think I can do without, that last glass of wine at the party sometimes.

Giving it some further thougt, I can come up with at least one more. Not a very original one, but a good one. To keep loosing some weight. I put on some extra weight a few years ago, the happy relationship kg's (pounds). I managed to loose some this summer. Lets keep it that way and hope that my daily garden chores, will bring me down even more this spring. We're talking hard labour here, not some cute housewife flower shuffling, with a pink, flowery mini shuffle. It's wheelbarrowing, running with wheelbarrow, stone carrying, digging in the heavy ground, carrying and mixing soil, spreading soil that I dug up, digging up and getting rid of weed, planting bushes etc.. It's sweaty, heavy, muscle building and a real fat killer.

An other thing, is my party smoking.. Since hubby quit smoking this winter and is doing really well at it. (I'm so proud!) My party smoking seems a bit unfear, disloyal and very unneccessary, all the sudden. And not to mention unhealthy, even if it's not too often. Maybe it's time to fase it out and get rid of my nasty party habit...
What about you? Any New Year's resolutions, or are you like me, a non believer?


  1. What a lovely picture - you look gorgeous! Love the black and white, your earrings and sophisticated retro hairstyle. I always make resolutions then blow them off. But this year I think I can keep them because I have made them more achievable goals rather than fairly vague statements. One is to use my new vitamix so I can eat healthier. Another is to get in good enough shape to climb partway up Pikes Peak with visiting family in May. I think your goals are great. Getting rid of the party smoking is an excellent goal although I know how hard that can be. So is weight loss through gardening. Good luck with those and Happy New Year.

    1. Thanks, Lady M <3 :) That's some great goals and just what I mean! Think it's better to make some achievable New Years resolutions, so we don't end up feeling even crappier afterwards, for not being able to reach our goals.. Pikes peak, wow! How far is it up? Yeah.. I know. Think I need to throw in a bit of spinning, with that garden work :D ahahaha Good luck with the new healthier life style ;)


Leave me a scream, if you're peeking in..
