Looking back....

It's that time again, to start taking stock of the year gone by and although we know that time can't really speed up on us like a spinning car at the waltzers, this year seems to have flown by! We could have sworn that summer even hasn't arrived yet... :) 

Our guess is that right now you'll be preparing to get yourself all sparkling and spangly for tonight's festivities (we donning the glitter as we type) and starting to think of your answers when someone inevitably asks at one minute past midnight what your New Year Resolutions will be. You might even be all insightful and think back to the resolutions you made last year and whether you kept any. Shamefully here at the office most of us couldn't even remember them but we obviously, it goes without saying that kept them. Cough cough :)

Now instead of beating ourselves up about our failings as people, we decided to write an 'I Did' list so not to dwell on what we didn't achieve, but to bask in the glory of what we did.

Ours included:
          "Moving house and moving office with style and grace"
"Successfully not biting ones nails again" 
          "Starting cycling to work"
"Organizing our own fairs"
         "Meeting a whole bunch of lovely vintage ladies and gents"
"Found ones true dance calling in the shape of Jive"
         "Heating the whole of ones house with a wood burner"
"Bought a van, sold it, bought a trailer, love it!"
         "Wrote and kept writing some lovely blogs"
"Bought a gorgeous overlocker"...to name a few.

Suddenly our year didn't seem such a waste and we felt quite happy with ourselves. So why not give it ago and write your own 'I Did' list and when that crafty fox asks you the dreaded question at 12.01am you can reply smugly "I haven't decided yet but did you know what I managed to get done last year?..."
