Along with Ali Edwards, and lots of other people, I have chosen a word for the year. I have done for the past couple of years, in fact for the past 3 years, so each year it gets a little more difficult. After much deliberation my word for this year is ACHIEVE. I like a postive word and hopefully it will prompt me to do actually do things.
So what do I want to achieve this year:
The first thing has to be my degree - I should finish my last module in June of this year.
Next I want to achieve a weight loss - I am deliberately not specifying how much, but I do need to lose some and feel more healthy.
Tied in with that one I want to achieve a better fitness level - the gym didn't work out for me, so am going to try walking more and using the Wii Fit.
Craft wise - I know I will not achieve much scrapbooking until my degree is finished so am not going to stress.
I would like to achieve at least one crocheted item this year and to continue with my knitting and felting.
Faithwise - I have started doing the E100 reading list and I want to achieve the completion of this.
I think that is enough to be getting on with. Have you chosen a word for the year?

I know I am a bit late - but Happy New Year - I wish you all the best for 2011.
We had a lovely time at New Year - staying up until about 2.30 am. Mainly practising on Just Dance2 on the Wii, which I got at Christmas. It was great fun and hopefully if I keep doing it I might actually get a bit fitter!

Andrew's main present this year was a 5ft pool table, which has gone down well with everyone. After some negotiation the boys agreed to switch bedrooms so Andrew could have the bigger room with the pool table in it. I think I need a lot more practice though!

We have had a lovely Christmas with family - and lots of eating, drinking and presents.
John's biggest smile has to be for the Toy Story boxset - you wouldn't think he was 16 would you?
Andrew of course likes everything to do with football so he was happy!
The boys looked very smart again in their suits - and party hats!!
