I think New Years is so overrated. Im past the stage of wanting to party the night away, for me it’s just another day that thankfully we are allowed off work, well some of us anyway.
This year we are spending it all together, tommo included, and we are off to the cottage for a few days which is always a nice break.
I think 2019 was a very testing and emotional year. A hell of a lot happened and, I am bloody glad it is done to be honest with you. But it is not just me it seems. By the look of social media 2019 has been pretty brutal for a lot of people. I am not one to believe in the ‘charging of full moons’ or ‘not stepping on the cracks in the pavement’ but I really feel like this year the stars were definitely not aligned.
So what about next year?
Well, I think it kind of has to be better. I feel like it’s going to be a very plain year where not a lot happens and I am totally ok with that. I feel like a sense of calmness is heading our way.
There are some things I want to do and some things I need to do but I am not setting myself goals or a list. Im done with New Years resolutions. They get broken and we just disappoint ourselves.
I will be 30 in 2021 and I feel like 2020 will be the year of prep to make sure I can hit my 30s running. Quite literally. I want to try and get more fit and healthy. My health, especially, depends on it right now. Come January I am starting Yoga classes and will also be joining a netball team hopefully. Ive also started running again, I need to do this more of an evening too so hopefully those three things will definitely help.
I also want to try and sort the house out a bit in 2020 too. Sounds weird but we are going to tackle one room at a time and redecorate too. Im excited to do this and its starting with the kitchen floor which has bubble up and is a nightmare. We did the kitchen cabinet doors the year I was pregnant or the year before I cant remember. But they only need a good clean I think. We will probably re-do the kitchen top surface and then a lick of paint and Viola. I say Viola but thats probably 2 weekends sold work and with a (nearly) 2 year old and an (nearly) 9 year old that can be quite difficult. But hopefully, it’s a start.
In 2019 I had an aim to read more books and I definitely did so I want to carry that on in 2020. I had aimed to read 20 and I read 14 of them so that’s not too bad. I think ill aim for the same in 2020. Fingers crossed.
We are also going to holiday around the uk next year I think. The back of beyond in the middle of no where can be truly wonderful even here in England so we are going to explore the unknown.
2020 is going to be a good year, I can feel it.
