I've started trying to sort myself out for 2012 now. None of my New Year resolutions have really been put into practice yet but I have today decided that they must begin. The first was the infamous "shedding of a few pounds". I have certainly piled on a bit of weight over the Christmas period and my gym membership went totally unused for the entire month of December (what a waste of money!). However, I have promised myself that as of Monday, I am back down there working off all that turkey. Well, I suspsect it is actually the mountains of chocolate that I ate that is responsible for my weight gain, rather than the turkey!
I'll let you know on Monday if I stick to my promise!
Another resolution that I have actually started to put into practice today, is to start rearranging the house, getting rid of the clutter and having a bit more organisation. Don't get me wrong, I have a clean house. It's just that over the year I tend to pick up a number of items that simply go into "storage" or get put aside and are never used. It is time for a clear out! It is other little problems that I want rectified too, such as I always have a pile of cuff links on my bedside table. Over the years, I have purchased a number of pairs of cuff links and have lost the original boxes to most of them. This means that, rather like socks, I have pairs where one often goes missing or they are simply scattered across tables and in drawers.
So, I am getting a nice little accessory case to store a few of my favourite ones in. These cases are normally aimed at travel but I find they are great to use at home as well to keep things tidy.
Again, I'll let you know next week if I manage to actually get around to clearing everything up!
