We were on holiday last week and I left my computer at home. I did have a feeling I would miss it but actually I didn’t, it was so nice to be completely free and I know my husband really appreciated having my attention in the evenings.
As usual I was nervous for the few days before we went away, a silly thing that I often do, worrying for no reason. Once we got down to Cornwall we could all relax and had such a fantastic time. We ate our fair share of Cornish pasties, fish and chips and scones with clotted cream. We went to the beach every day, built sand castles, went swimming in the sea, collected mussles from the rocks to have for our dinner. I spent half an hour on the phone to my mum when we got back telling her all about our adventures and completely forgot to say about William coming out in the Chicken Pox while we were there so it must have been a good holiday!
I feel relaxed and ready for a new start, for me the last few years September has been a month of change and again I feel that change in the air. As I said in an email to a friend: 2005-started my Masters, 2006-got engaged, 2007-got married, 2008-left work to have Bell, 2009-found out we were expecting William, 2010-moved house, 2011-started school for creative startups course. So it is now 2012 – what is going to happen this month I wonder? There is nothing I have planned for so I feel like I should use my ‘new year’ feeling and start another project, I already have my 30 by 30 challenge and Herman which I haven’t forgotten about but I love a project. I am currently reading The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin and have been very inspired to start my own Happiness Project. I do feel like I am already doing some of the things that Gretchen recommends but it won’t harm to clarify these for myself. I wonder if there are any other bloggers or indeed anyone who would like to join me, I could start up a linky?!?
Did you have a holiday this year – how did you feel when you got back?
Would you like to join me for a happiness project – a year of trying to be happier?
Can any fellow bloggers give me advice about organising link ups – eek scary?
It’s nice to be back online, not quite sure I’m ready for reality though, I’ve got work tonight!
