So here we are in 2011, wonder what sort of year it will be for us all.
I know for someone in Canada it will be a marvellous start to the year as someone has won 50 million dollars in the Loto Max............will add it wasn't us, which sucks.........mind you what you have never had you never miss, right?
It's a funny old start to 2011 for us as it's pouring down and very mild? Will say the good thing about that is it should wash away all or most of the snow, so we will have a fresh clean start before the next snowfall.
We had a rip roaring exciting New Years Eve, nothing was on TV, so we were in bed by 9pm. Molly had me up by 6am, so all in all just like any regular day. As I pointed out to someone, what difference does it really make to seeing the New Year in at midnight, as seeing it in when you wake up at 6am? Must be getting old I think.
I know 2011 will be a busy year for us, as dd plans on getting married in the Fall..........should have the exact date in a few days, as she is in the process of choosing a venue. Then of course back at renovation central we have a few jobs that need completing. We are hoping by the end of Spring that the attic will be finally completed. We have the mud room to totally strip down and start afresh, plus a hundred and one other jobs to do.
I want to tackle the outside again and "baby" the raspberries, so they grow enough to make around 100 250ml (1/2 pint, 1 cup) pots of jam. Last year was a poor crop, but am hoping for more this year.
Then of course I have to lose some weight. I still can't exercise mind you as my back is still sore, but I am hoping within the week I should be able to start again with the Wii.
I am going to review more books, got 4 to do for the month of January when they come. Great way of me getting to read new books for free and then donating them to my local library.
Back to doing my Daily Savings challenge, read about it here, and if you want me to explain further just let me know. I am continuing with Swagbucks and am saving up for something specific, can't say what at the moment, as it's a gift for someone. Will be trying to save as much money as possible for this wedding, as like many of you out there we are not rolling in money, so all these little things I am doing help.
All in all 2011 is going to be both an exciting and a challenging year I can see.
Oh, almost forgot, one of my hopes for 2011 is that I don't spend half of my life at the Dentist's office!!! I don't want to have another year like last year (touching wood....my head!!)
I saw this over at Jake's blog and thought it was appropriate:
"May your troubles be less
and your blessings be more
And nothing but happiness
come through your door."
