As usual, a lot has gone this month. It started very convivially with dinner with friends and an amazing afternoon tea for my birthday treat at the start of the month. In the middle, I travelled to Leeds for a … Continue reading September Review & October Goals
It’s September again, my favourite month. I’ve really got the “new pencil case” feeling this year again, and I’m excited about what the last part of the year will bring. There’s a chill in the air this morning with the … Continue reading August Review & September Goals
Half way through another year, and as I type, the sun is out, it’s actually hot and that probably means that summer is about to finish in an on-going storm of torrential rain and gales. Or perhaps not. It’s been … Continue reading Mid Year Review Part 1 – Health Update
Halfway through year already – arrrrrgggggghhhhhhh!!!! Where did it go? Is my life genuinely flashing before my very eyes? I had intended to spend some time over the past few days reviewing my plans for the year, but when I … Continue reading June Review & July Goals
It seems like a bit of a monthly update on the blog at the moment, but that’s life and once June is done with, I should have a bit more time for well, life! More on that in the minute, … Continue reading May Review & June Goals
April has been a pretty good month all in all. We’ve moved! Thanks to the usual solicitor shenanigans (theirs, not ours) it was slightly delayed and we finally got into the new place on the 28th. It’s good to be … Continue reading April Review & May Goals

As ever, this month as passed in a daze, lots has happened! I’ve also been a bit neglectful of the blog, but sometimes life gets in the way.
So first the big news – we’ve found a new house and had an offer accepted! There’s still a way to go before completion, so I’m not counting my chickens, but things are looking good so far. We didn’t actually end up looking at that many (not actually that much out there!), but what we’ve found fits the bill, although it needs a bit of work.
It’s two years now since I started introducing new habits in an attempt to bring some order and positivity into what had become a chaotic and difficult time. Over that time, I’ve blogged about each habit, my reasons for introducing it and my reflections about whether it’s been a useful addition to the set.
It now feels like it’s time for a final round up before putting this one to bed – not that I’m stopping the habits themselves (for the most part!) but that I don’t need to blog about them any longer. So here’s the summary of where I’ve got to. And a picture of some habits for your amusement.
January is finally over and the first signs of spring are finally in the air (or in the garden at least, even it if is a bit wet and miserable out there today). I am definitely ready for some lighter mornings and longer days!
