Happy New Year to you all!
As we race into 2012 I'm sure you are all still recovering from the Christmas period, probably trying to tidy your house from all the celebrations, if you have children trying to bring them down from all the Christmas highs and get their minds into the new School term, and making resolutions that are days/hours/minutes away from being broken.
There are lots to look forward to in 2012, I think!
Well, we here in the UK have the Olympics if that's your thing (it's not mine, I plan to hibernate for the period as I live in an area where there are going to be quite a few training facilities!). We also have the Queen's Diamond Jubilee. Euro 2012, which I'm sure will mean that everyone in England will get hyped up and excited and convince themselves we have a chance at winning, and end up disappointed when we are knocked out on penalties, oh the cynicism! There is also a solar eclipse happening at some point in the year, best seen by those in Australia.
Oh, not forgetting the US Presidential Election, which I always find very exciting! It's always much more glamorous and gritty than our elections.
That's everything I can think of right now, so on that note I'm going to put my hopes and goals for the forthcoming year.
1 - Finish my 365 books in 365 days challenge (which ends in March, btw), hopefully successfully.
2 - Complete and submit 'Upfront Centre Stage' by the end of the year.
3 - Develop and begin another MS
4 - Lost 30lb by summer - am going to Florida, I need to shift it!
5 - Have new kitchen and bathroom fitted, it's long overdue!
6 - Hope that my husband and I are blessed with the chance to have our own family, either naturally or through adoption, which we have just started the process for. Infertility treatment is also something that I will be looking at in the New Year (more on that anther time!)
7 - Most of all I wish for peace. Not world peace, I'm realistic, but a calmer world. 2011 wasn't a great year and I hope that 2012 will be the year in which we learn to live in a little more harmony with others.
What are you looking forward to in 2012 and what are your hopes/goals/resolutions etc?
All the best.
