There are a few things I’ve come to learn over the the year 2015:
- Commuting isn’t as bad as I remembered.
- Just because someone’s older than you, doesn’t mean they’re wiser
- Drugs are for people with very little imagination
- It’s perfectly okay to spend an hour/day/week doing absolutely nothing at all
I’ve also learnt I’m a much better person than I give myself credit for (take that as you will), my life is pretty incredible, my job is amazing and there’s pretty much nothing I can’t do. Phew.
I don’t do an awful lot for New Year now that I’m an old person besides, I’m a great believer of starting the Year as I mean to go on and waking up in someone’s front garden smelling questionable isn’t really how I want to spend my 2016. One thing I do love about New Year though is reading everyone’s resolutions. It’s like taking a peep into someone’s diary but without the guilt.
I don’t really set resolutions mainly because I’m pretty sure I’ll end up with the tragic ‘Stop biting my nails’ and ‘Loose ten stone’ list. This year my only challenge is to ‘Do More.’ Not actually much of a challenge to be honest as making time for hobbies, exercise and travel is always a priority for me, but this year I’ve decided to buy as little material items as possible in order to just do a little more.
One of the things on my ‘doing’ list is to cook often (and actually enjoy it). I have the tiniest little house in the world with an equally tiny kitchen, so cooking is usually pretty stressful. Having people over to eat is out of the question (mainly because there’s no room for a dining table), but coming home from a long day at work and finding the time to cook myself something delicious feels like such an achievement. I also I received about a million foodie related books this Christmas, so I kinda don’t have an excuse…
Here’s to a 2016 with less things and a lot more food!
