Yes I am a ....resolution maker

I love making new years resolutions. I am such a geek, but there is something about January first that makes me feel indestructible , makes me feel like anything is possible and I can really rock the world. So here is my list for 2011...

(2010 was pretty much a shocker so we won't
talk about my list for that year)

1. Get organized with everything
2. Get my blog going so well I actually have some lovely sponsor and maybe a few more readers
3. Have my photography business up and running
4. Become A LOT greener at home ( not the color but enviro friendly)
5. Knit something other than a scarf
6. Sew something other than a pin cushion
7. Instead of talking about doing things and then talking myself out of it - do all those things!

(I'm hoping that this covers the usual suspects of - get healthier, exercise, etc.)

Thank you all for hanging out with me through 2010 and I can't wait to go through 2011 with all of you.

The Cottage

Kitchen from The Happy Home

Girls bedroom from here

Bathroom from A Cup Of Jo

In about four weeks we will be moving into a little cottage that needs a shitload possibly a bit of work.  So some of my blog for the next five years twelve months will probably be about our first renovation job.

My parents have bought it so we will be renting from them.  I am hoping we can make it beautiful enough that they leave it to me and not a cat home! (I'm kinda joking as I know they are reading this but only kinda.)

My Dad & Billy Thorpe

This is my Dad.
My Dad is one of two ( the other being the Mr) of the smartest men in the universe.  He has the capabilities to do anything and usually does. He also LOVES music.

My Dad is a little OCD when he likes something, he really likes it. Sometimes that makes him a little questionable (yes I am talking about Richard Clapton Dad!)

At the moment he loves the Billy Thorpe album Tangier ,
which luckily, I also love.

My parents gave me a great appreciation for Australian music and for that I will always be grateful.

The fact that Mum bought him this album so we don't have to listen to Richard Clapton and AC/DC for a little while , I will also be grateful xxx
