We are now two weeks in to January and I thought I would update you on how I am getting on with my word of the year and my intentions for 2014.
Over on A Thrifty Mum, I have been documenting my decluttering efforts, which are going really well and I am pleased to say that slowly but surely I am simplifying our home and belongings. I am learning that I also need to nurture the environment we live in making life easier for all of us. With this in mind I have decided to get our tumble dryer repaired. I haven’t used the dryer for over a year as it has been broken and have found drying the washing such a chore this winter.
With regards to nurturing myself I have appointments with numerous specialists to discuss my condition and I am also having regular blood tests to ensure that things do not get to the stage they did before Christmas. I understand that by keeping on top of it I can really make an impact on all of my family. So this really is key for us all.
Sewing lessons also start again next week and I am really looking forward to spending time with a fab group of ladies and my sewing machine. I started on Capturing Childhood Manual Overdrive e course this week too.
Each lunch time I take Alvin out for a walk and it is doing me the world of good to get out of the house and experience some sunshine.
MadDad and I are also making time to have movie nights together and enjoying our evening time together. We have plans to have more lunches together and spend quality time together.
I am also learning to say “no” to things. I ask myself the question “will this nurture me and my family?”
It is early in the year, but things are going well at the moment and by having a word to focu on it is really making me think and evaluate what I am doing.
