Before I sat down to do this post, I didn’t actually know what Bouclé meant. I knew what a Bouclé jacket looked like of course – but not what specifically made it that. Turns out it’s not the cut or the style, but the yarn (or, as Wikipedia called it the ‘novelty yarn’). Anyway the point is, that yarn is a lot warmer than you might expect, I was pretty toasty when taking these photos.
I’ll be honest, I’ve never liked New Year. In my book it’s possibly worse than Valentine’s Day (because at least sympathetic family members usually buy me chocolate for Valentine’s.) But New Year? It’s always been ‘just another day’ to me. Nice that we get it off work though.
Then, as I was leaving work last night I found myself grinning for no real reason on the way home, and I realised how much happier I am now than I was this time last year. I only had one goal last year – to finish my house and get moved in. It seemed like it would never happen. I spent all my time inhaling plaster dust and covered in paint. To some extent I neglected a lot of the other aspects of my life to complete it – and I’ve been making up for lost time ever since (though it was totally worth it – I love my house).
So this list, isn’t so much ‘resolutions’ – it’s more ‘reminders’ of all the things I looked forward to spending my time doing when it seemed like the house would never be finished.
And if I write it down on the internet there’s a better chance I’ll be reminded to do it.
I don’t say ‘Happy New Year’… but I will say HAVE FUN x
