But I'm still going to try and I apologise in advance if I skip around to different topics, that's how my brain has been lately. It's been weird around here over the last few weeks. You all probably know there's always been a bit of a strain in the relationship between me/N and his sister. It's reached a terrible point over the last few weeks and it has seriously pulled me down. It's just a very sad, sad situation and it keeps creeping into my thoughts.
Plus after we'd put all the Christmas decorations and everything away for the year, it seemed like a good time to do a whole-house tidyup. A very relieving task. I love clearing clutter, and especially organising. I lost count of how many bags of 'junk' went to the charity shops.
It must just be me and my luck, but it seems like every person I know with a child is having a birthday party in the next two months. Just when Christmas is over and I think 'phew, no more presents/wrapping/spending' and we get three party invitations in the post. We had a birthday party last weekend, another this weekend, and one for the following weekend. I'm expecting 4 more invitations before March.
Over Christmas, I watched three TV adaptations of Dickens's novels. Oliver Twist, David Copperfield and The Old Curiosity Shop. It inspired me to pick up one of the books (Oliver Twist) as I've only ever read Great Expectations previously. So far I'm disappointed. But I'm thinking of making it one of my goals this year...
I've decided not to make any resolutions this year, I never stick to them. But there are certain things I'd like to happen this year. Mainly, giving birth to a healthy baby. I'd like to potty train Elliot. I'd like to be able to drive around confidently. I think I'll stop there before I get too carried away...
i don't know, your three goals are big enough to suffice :)ReplyDelete
Hey michelle, i know you can do those things with your eyes closed!ReplyDelete
My favorite Dickens is Bleak House, but it was a hard fought battle, I positively hated him at first.
i hope things get better between you and N's sister
p.s organizing is such fun I love it
