A lifestyle blog, with lots of photography, creating and pretty things.

Well hello there my neglected blog, how are you? I will not indulge in excuses or explanations, this is just to say I am here and will come back as often as I can.

It is a New Year and I have picked a word to guide me through it. One that I will refer back to each day when making decisions or when I need a helping hand to continue in the right direction.

                         the capacity to accept or tolerate delay, trouble, or suffering 
                                                without getting angry or upset

I will practice patience:
  • with myself, especiallly when I stumble working towards my goals
  • with my children
  • with my husband
  • with my co-workers
  • with fellow drivers on my commutes (this might be the most challenging one!)
  I also have 3 goals I want to accomplish by the end of this year:
  •  Run a 10 km race in under 1 hour (my best time is 53:42 and that was over 3 years ago, time to get back into it)
  • Complete my Project Life album. Changing jobs has created a gap in my pages, I am going to be PATIENT with myself and let the lapse go and continue on as I can.
  • Play a new song on the piano - but not just being able to pluck out the notes; it has to be AWESOME.
