Happy 2014 Everyone!

Happy New Year to all my readers, friends and family.  I hope that you saw in the new year with people you love and had a fabulous time doing so.  I can happily say I had both my children with me, one happily sleeping through the sounds of the fireworks on TV and the other, being at that age where she'd much rather be in the company of friends, commenting on what an ugly start to the new year it was.  Nevertheless I was happy to start my new year in my home with my children and my mother, three of the people I love most in the world and unlike last year I didn't run out of the house as soon as the clocks struck 12.

My new years resolution this year is exactly the same as last year, I'm not bothering to make any.  Instead I do have a few plans, which are somewhat different to me in theory as nobody ever 'really' sticks to their New Years Resolutions.  One of those plans involve doing a Sam Carisle and not buying any new clothes for a year, or at least not any new clothes for myself, the children will of course need new clothes every second as children do!  Unlike Sam I haven't chosen to do this because I have too many outfits, in fact I really could do with a new pair of jeans and a couple of jumpers.  This for me is really a bid to save myself some money.  So if you're struggling to think of a valentines gift, Easter alternative to chocolate or a birthday present for me you know what to buy!

Not this one I have it already and made them give me 40% off because their labels were wrong :)

Other than torturing myself by not shopping for new clothing (place your bets on how long I'll last) I also plan to make a real effort to get out more with my friends without breaking the bank and to do more fun things with the children, any suggestions are welcome.  As well as that I will have to try and help teen princess with her studies, so this year for our little family will be all about focus and fun.

What do you hope your year will be about?
