With the turn of season and a third of the year gone, I'm wondering, how are your new years resolutions going?
I've just revisited mine and I think I'm on the right track. Here's some of my successes and challenges so far:
Limit my giving and my wardrobe to homemade, second hand or fair trade items
Well, the only clothes I have bought this year have been from the local second hand store, however.... [boys, close your eyes and ears] I am in desperate need of some new bras and while it's quite easy to find fair trade socks and underwear, these babes are a different matter. I've only been able to find one underwire set on the net but I'm not convinced, so am holding out for a miracle. Any ideas?
Make our home more environmentally sustainable
Not to blow my own trumpet (although that's exactly what I'm doing) but Kym and I are really proud of where we've come this year. We're working on our raised veggie beds:
And we have just had our solar installed (however await a new fuse box and a visit from ETSA to get it working... we'll be up and running in May)
Commit more of my time & energy to creativity
Hmmm... I've opened the etsy store and thanks to the shingles saga, I had a couple of weeks basically to myself to spend on creating. But the big news is that I'm (fingers crossed) changing my working hours in May so that I can spend more time on my arts. That means more prints, more cakes, more posts. Send a wish out for me that this all goes through.
Well that's me! Tell me, how is your year tracking? Have you abandoned your resolutions? Have your goals changed?
