What 2012 means to me...

I promise this will be my last new years related post!

Being away for the Christmas / New Year break and some busy work weeks prior to that means that I have lots of catching up on my blog reading to do.  My Google Reader is a bit out of control!

My favourite blogs are full at the moment of reflection and new years resolutions and goals.  So I'll jump on the bandwagon... for me the start of 2011 was up and down - pretty crap with some amazing highlights in between but it did (and for so many I know) get a lot better as the year progressed.  So to kick off 2012, some of my goals for this year are:

1. Get back into my fitness routine and finally do that half marathon I have been talking about running instead of just signing up for them and then not training / chickening out :)

2. Go to bed earlier - sleep more

3. Just accept there are certain things I can't control and try not to stress out  / overthink / overanalyse / try to fix things I can't fix!

4.  Stress less, work less (hopefully!)

5.  Most importantly, spend more time / keep in contact with the ones I love.

Music memories

I have the office to myself this afternoon so I can ditch the headphones and am turning up the music.

I used to be really up to date with music, read music blogs and keep up with new songs, artists, go to gigs.. but this has sort of faded out in the last few years. These days I seem to rely a lot on Spotify and their playlists and recommendations which is great for busy people!

But this afternoon I am feeling a bit nostalgic so reminiscing and playing some songs played at our wedding back in 2010 which is bringing back some beautiful memories.

Today I need to concentrate and write a briefing paper for my boss' boss.  Being in an open plan office it means putting on my headphones and turning on Spotify to listen to their Afternoon Acoustic playlist.  It's my go-to playlist and features this sweet little tune from John Mayer...


Back to blogging..

And I'm back... I have found myself with some more spare time up my sleeve recently and a friend suggested that I should throw myself back into blogging again so here I am!

It's crazy that it's been almost a year since my last post. 2015 was a bit of a pretty dramatic year for us on the health front so we are hoping for a lot less drama this year!

But it will be a big year with a new home purchase and us moving in mid-year.  So that means some renovating and decorating which I will hopefully post about here.  The pinning has already begun...!

In the meantime, we just enjoyed a lovely long Easter weekend at home and hosted some friends for lunch on Easter Saturday.  First time we made a lamb roast (and it turned out great to our delight) and we also pulled out the same hot cross buns recipe that I used last year which was a hit. I think this will become an annual Easter tradition.

I really do love cooking for family and friends so I think my next hosting challenge will b…
