Mum doesn't really believe in New Years resolutions as they never last. There are some things she could do better and the New Year is a time to think about those things.
Over the staycation she watched a few episodes of Horders and this has motivated her. She has donated some stuff to the charity shop and thrown a couple of bags of stuff out.
Last year she added a couple of new recipes to her repertoire- middle eastern meatballs and rice and a chicken broccoli Alfredo pasta. Both quick and easy with lots of vegetables and she is able to make enough for a few meals in one go. So rather than being too ambitious by trying to make a new recipe a week, once a month is about right for her.
She liked the idea she read about on the Cup of John blog. Rather than focusing on the things you would like to improve in the year ahead like be more active, lose weight, save money etc...., they made a resolution to do something fun for the year. So you could choose to read more books, watch more movies, go for more walks or take more photos. Mum thinks that she will try and read more (she does read a lot but still finds herself wasting time watching silly shows). Me - well I am going to spend more time taking naps.
How about you and your person - what fun things would make you happy in 2017?
