Mums not into New Years Resolutions - but she felt proud of herself. Her and one of her besties figured out how to start the gas barbque last night by themselves. Usually it is a mans task, but the girls had to do it themselves, and they felt like it was a new skill learnt for 2012.
One of the things that mum has done the past year, and is redoing this year is a $5 jar. See every time mum goes to buy something, groceries, bus fares, fancy feast - if she is given a $5 note, she keeps it, takes it home and puts in a jar. Every year then, when mum and the besties go to the art show, mum has a wad of notes to take with her. If there is no art that she likes or can afford, then mum has a bit of money to treat herself to something nice. It is amazing how quick the dollars add up, and now several of mums friends do it.
We hope you all have some nice plans for 2012.
