32

It was my birthday today. It made me think about stuff, kind of like a delayed new years. Caleb is at Prep and doing super, Poppy is in day care 2 mornings a week and enjoying creating and work has been cut back to 32 hours, not good for the bank balance but good for time, especially with no markets in the pipeline. So I got plans – for me.

- Be my age - some carefree could go a long way.  I want to look after myself, enjoy some forgotten passions, indulge a little.

- Make time to exercise and find it enjoyable. Lots of lovely ladies are talking about ‘the zone’ I don’t know if I shall move anything above a haze or a fuzz to ever graduate to a zone. Who knows, perhaps there is one lurking?

- Plan meals and write a shopping list – never done it in my life and making the most of the slow cooker we got for Christmas

- Sew things for me that I enjoy wearing and explore new techniques.

I had plans for pictures but no camera battery – see that is why I need a list

A very happy thirty-tooth! I'm heading on up to 33 this year. Eek, suddenly that is sounding old.

I love your plans and goals. I have a couple of book recommendations that may be of interest on both the meal planning and exercise front - things that are really helping me to find 'the zone'!! But I'll email them to you if you like... (rather than blabbing on in the comments)

Carolyn said...

Happy Birthday!!

I turned 32 on the 12th!

I love my slow cooker!

Rach said...

Happy birthday to you! I always plan meals and shop accordingly - my best friend laughs! But each week I flick through the million cook books and magazines and choose the menu for the week. Of course we deviate on the nights I cannot be arsed stuffing a duck or whatever adventerous dinner had been planned.

So here's to a good year, you youngster!
