|My mood in a picture......|
Happy New Year to all my blog-reading friends.
Despite being a Scot, I've never been much into New Year, or, as we call it, Hogmanay. With the progression of the years I've stopped doing very much in the way of celebrations, resolutions or any of that stuff.
The past few years have been difficult for everyone, but 2021 ranks as one of the worst years ever for me personally and I'm not sorry to see the back of it. I already know that 2022 will hold its own challenges in all areas of my life, many of which I will have no control over. That has always be the case, but this year more so than ever and I've got to get used to a new 'normal'.
Anyway.... I'm back at work tomorrow and looking forward to getting into my workroom and cracking on with preparation for the upcoming KDF online showcase next month. Lots to do and I probably won't get it all completed, but I'll give it a go.
Today I'm doing lists.
Lists of work stuff to do.al
Lists of house stuff to do.
Lists of stuff I want to do.
Lists of various projects I want to start in the next few months.
Lots of lists. I do love a list.
I've also been doing a bit of long-overdue organisation and planning. Going forward I think my keyword for this year is going to have to be 'flexibility'. I already know that plans are likely to be thwarted by stuff going on, so I need to be mindful of that and not get thrown. So I'm not going to beat myself up when I don't get things done on time.... or not done at all.
In the meantime, I'm getting set up for the year ahead with the perfect stationery.....
