New Year reflections

Happy New Year bloggy friends!  Hope you are full of the hope and promise of a new year.  I'm always full of grand ideas during January - and then school goes back.  But it's nice to have the time to think about the year gone and consider the year ahead.

I'd like to slow down a little bit this year - I'm feeling more on the panicky end of the spectrum about 2011. Probably means I have to face up to the reality that I need to cut out a couple of commitments.  I can't just keep stuffing things in.  And I really don't like feeling like everyday of my life is too full.

On top of working in a new job (where I still feel that I've got no idea what I'm doing) and finishing off my uni course, I'm taking on a bigger involvement at playgroup, my eldest child is starting high school and we're adding another musical instrument to the craziness.  At least I won't have to do any Year 6 fundraising this year and my role on the preschool committee is up for grabs (in my mind anyway).  Oh, and I still have my youngest at home this year.

These are the times I wish I had a bottomless capacity.  But I don't, so it's usually stuff at home that starts to fall apart.

But, gee, I'm so glad that Christmas is over for another year.  Sounds terrible, I know, but I was so tired by Boxing Day.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

I hope you're able to revisit this post from time to time during the year to remind yourself to slow down when the pace starts picking up again.
