Good things: What's Hot & What's Not

I can’t believe it’s the last Wednesday of March already … I’m already tired of asking myself where’s the year's gone and I don't think it's going to get any better! Wow.

This month has been interesting, mostly because it’s been so busy at work. I’m not feeling very optimistic because travelling with Miss C in the morning to work means I'm spending so much more time at work, and because work generally is hectic at the moment.

What’s been Hot this month

Travel. Does travel to Ballarat and Daylesford count? Other than that I’ve barely been anywhere.

Spend more time with friends and family. I went to Ballarat this month and had a nice time with my Mum in Daylesford and I’m off to visit Mum again over Easter … this time we’ll probably go to Bendigo and see the Dragon on Easter Monday, and I’ll get to see my siblings and nieces as well. That should be fun so I’m looking forward to that.

And I've got into the habit of chatting to Janine a couple of times a week although we're crap at catching up in person. Between my wanting to drop at the weekend and Janine not feeling well ... we're serial non starters!

Find something good each day. I’ve barely missed a day. That, at least, has been brilliant.

Exercise more. I’ve finished an entire term of yoga and next term I’m thinking of doing it twice a week. But I haven’t walked once this month … can you believe i just can't walk for exercise?

What’s Not been so Hot

EXPLORE. I feel as though this has taken a back seat this month … although I’m grappling with the silliest out of comfort zone issue at the moment that’s dragging me down. I loaned my TV to Miss C and, after three months, it’s driving me crazy. I like to listen to DVDs as I craft … I can’t craft without them with the result I’m not getting anything done. I have to do something about this … probably buy a computer or laptop for the bedroom because I’ve got to the point where I can’t do this anymore.

Finish 5 craft projects. You’d think this is nothing but I’m a serial starter and not finisher and after three months I haven’t finished anything: I untangled the shawl I’d almost made for my mother and I had to restart the name tag for Sew It Together. But on the upside I’ve almost finished a paper craft project that will have a big reveal shortly … so maybe I can be generous and put myself into the 50/50 camp.

Cook more. I haven’t ‘cooked’ except to make breakfast once this month. Yet again, my contribution has been to wash dishes and floors and keep the room clean.

Renovate. Let’s not even discuss this … I’m barely managing to stay on top of the ironing and washing at the moment.

It sounds like you are very busy. It's hard to focus when you feel like your running from event to event. Cograts on finding something good each day. I ought to do that.

Thank you so much for your prayers for Finn they are much appreciated. Also I so understand what it is to be a serial starter and not finisher I am yet to finish Sabrina's bassinet blanket and she's about to go into a big bed.
