So it’s New Year’s Eve and tomorrow is a new day of a new year. I tend to get a bit maudlin on Hogmanay and don’t really make resolutions.
I was expecting to turn 40 next year but a friend (clearly better at maths than me – also, bloody Facebook birthdays adding a year onto my age!!…) Told me I was talking rubbish and of course wouldn’t be 40 until December 2014. This, aside from making me feel slightly ridiculous, also made me a feel like I’ve gained an extra year so I’m going to aim to commit to a few things I’ve been skirting round the edges of:
– Attend 3 classes a week at my local Ashtanga yoga centre
– Walk more, drink more water and (bit) less wine
– Get stuck in and complete the Philosophy course I signed up to on CourseraCoursera online education (more on this in January!)
– Be more positive (as I can be a miserable bint sometimes) and less insular
– Blog more regularly…
Happy New 2013 to you!
The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 4,600 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 8 years to get that many views.

So no new cooking this week as we’ve been trying to eat what’s left in the freezer before we move out tomorrow (though I have a great Indian recipe my OH made last weekend which I’ll post once I have decent Wi-Fi again).
So meals this week have included frozen vegetables, veggie burgers and oven chips/fries. Alongside that, pasta, eggs, beans, cheese and bread. Whilst not necessarily what you want to eat every day, I think when you’re a bit tired, stressed and coming down with 3yo’s cold then it’s easy and comforting. And there’s nothing wrong with that, right?

I love this painting. Its called Griffiths Drive by David Rayson who came from Wolverhampton (as do i originally) and his paintings convey ‘suburban claustrophobia’. It was recently hung as past of a collection of images of suburbia at Wolverhampton Art Gallery which is well worth a look if you’re in town.
