Hello 2015

Hello 2015. 
This year is huge. 


If I had a book of major life events I am almost certain that 2015 will be there: 
This is the year I finish my degree.
The year I graduate. 
The year I start teacher training. 
The year the boy and I say goodbye to long distance.

So many of those things excite me, not least being able to count off the days till the boy and I are living in the same city. (That story will come in more detail. Trust me, it's a good one!) 


I love new year. It's like standing on top of a hill, surveying the land before we hurtle into it. 
There is so much to look forward to this year and so much work to do. 
With that in mind I'm making a conscious effort to take care. 


Taking care of my body and making healthy food choices, particularly as I knuckle down to work. It's all too easy to snack on biscuits! 
Taking care of that creative part of my soul and making sure I have some easy projects to work on. I am really keen to do some more knitting again and maybe a bit of embroidery.

Taking care of my mind. I want to try and stay off social media late at night and instead herald in more reading. 
Taking care of the blog. I am determined to post more, join in more and use this place as another creative outlet. Watch this space....

2015. You are set to be fun.

What does this year have in store for you?

It's certainly going to be an eventful year for you, how exciting! I love that you intend to keep a good balance of creating to give a bit of relief from all that studying you will be doing. Can't wait to see what projects you have planned.

This is definitely going to be a big year for you! So happy that you and The Boy will finally be in the same city. The Pirate more than likely will be moving to Florida to be with the PirateGirl. I'll hate him being so far away but am so excited for them. Long distance is hard. I am not sure what our year will hold but I am hopeful that the joys outweigh the sorrows.

Happy New Year to you & The Boy Abi. I hope your Christmas was all that you hoped for. This post is so uplifting particularly saying goodbye to your long distance relationship and your degree of course. What a wonderful time in your life this is and to think it is all here on your blog to keep forever.
