What resolutions??


How quickly times flies, eh? Seems like only yesterday I was posting the same message.

I haven't been too bad at updating my blog, but have received many comments about doing it more often. I refuse to make New Years resolutions, as I never stick to them, but I will try and write more often.

We had a leisurely evening in last night with M&S nibbles and a roaring fire. Freezing cold again last night. We stayed up to watch Big Ben, but were in bed by 12.10. Old timers that we are!!

The Girls were treated to a pre New Year run clean. I changed all the aubiose and washed out their water containers, whilst they created havoc in the veggie garden. I don't often let them in there as they have an annoying habit of digging in the raised beds and flinging soil everywhere, but I was feeling generous yesterday.

Elsbeth, Pru and Laverne causing a stir, looking like the Three Degrees!

They loved scratching around the bark chippings looking for slug eggs.

Agnes and Cornelia didn't know what to make of it at first and stayed in their run, but soon discovered the strawberry leaves and forgot their shyness.

I read a thread on the Omlet Forum about buying nothing new for a year and have decided to give it a go. You can buy underwear, toiletries, food (thank God), dentist, doctors etc are all allowed, but anything else must be sourced from freecycle, ebay, charity shops etc. I am one day into it and doing well. Haven't spent a penny. Well I have, twice, but you know what I mean. *wink*

It is not going to be easy, but I am really going to try this year. What with the credit crunch and all.......!!!

Blogger is still refusing to upload all my pictures, so will try again later *rolls eyes*


  1. Hi Christian - happy new year to you and Jase and the girls! You mustn't let your adoring readers dictate what and when you blog! Blogging should be a pleasure, not a chore. Thanks for letting us into your world.

  2. Thanks!

    I never see updating my blog as a chore, just wish the photos would upload!

  3. Happy New Year to you too! Looking forward to a year of inspiration to get my new lifestyle going. Am so impressed you made those puddinis - they are merely a twinkle in my eye at the moment.

  5. A Happy and Healthy Year to you both. MANY thanks for all the entertainment and education.


stop me being locked up for posting to myself.....
