Looking back and forward…..

3 Jan

It’s that time of year again when it’s deemed appropriate to review the last 12 months and express disappointment in one’s performance and blame unexpected family commitments, unplanned overseas travel, or un scheduled box set binges. And then to look towards the approaching new year and to promise more commitment to the task in hand, combined with less procrastination.

Well, in a year long effort not to beat my self up too much about the few things I don’t actually achieve, and to take a little more credit for so much of what I have actually achieved….

I can say that I really enjoyed visiting this….


And this…


I learnt a few new things like this….


And this …..


I shall grow more of these….


And these….


I want to photograph more things like this….


And this….


I want to spend more time here….


And here….


I want to fill my house with more of these…..


And these….


I want to eat in more places like this….


And this….


I should probably eat more of these….


And less of these….


I must spend more time wearing these….


But still make time to do more of this….


And most importantly to make more time to appreciate things like this….


And this….


I’ll let you know how I get on !
