2011 is just about over; today is New Year's Eve - which you probably already know, I'm sure - and tomorrow starts our attempts at remembering to write "2012" instead of "2011" when we write the date. I don't know about you, but I only just get the hang of writing one year before we change to the next, LOL!
So, how was 2011 for you?
For me it was a busy year that seems to have flown by. A lot happened; the biggest thing being our move in October, which was basically from one side of the UK to the other.
Are you making any new year's resolutions?
I'm not; I don't make them.
My first year staying up for midnight my brother told me my choice of resolution was stupid, so I said I wouldn't make any if I couldn't make the ones I wanted to. I suppose, in a way, that's a resolution in itself; I suppose, in a way, I just promised myself I wouldn't make promises I couldn't keep. Either way, I've kept to it ever since. I'd just turned 9, so I've kept to it now for 18 years.
I do make lists of things I would like to achieve each year though. More than anything those lists are just "to do lists" that I hope to get to before the next year is out; mainly involving projects I want to get done that year.
Most of my projects didn't get done in 2011; I ended up not giving out handmade gifts to everyone as I'd planned, and I still haven't made myself the knitted items I keep promising to make for myself.
Maybe in 2012 I'll do a better job of getting through my list?
First I'm going to make those things I promised myself; starting with a hat, scarf and mittens set. Then I'll start on all those other projects on my list.
Happy New Year to you all; I hope you have a fun - and safe - time celebrating!
Kelly, Kero and I are having a quiet night in... Normal for us; we're not big on parties, and we don't drink, so a quiet night in suits us much better.
