New Year's Resolutions

My most important New Year's Resolution this year is to get back to the dress size that I was at the beginning of December. Unfortunately, stopping breastfeeding has not been good for my figure, and trousers which were hanging off me then are now uncomfortably tight. So on the assumption that if I can gain it in a month I can lose it in a month, I'll be off the chocolates and biscuits for a while.

The New Year is a new start for us as we move into our new house, so the rest of my resolutions are a bit up in the air at the moment. We've already had a clear out and declutter, and we'll be cleaning the house as we move in.

One thing that I am keen to do is to get involved in the local community. This is something that isn't too difficult when you have children as there are plenty of activities to help you get to know other parents, as long as you make the effort. I do have some friends in the area we are moving to, and it would also be nice if I could find some sort of 'grown up' activity to take part in, perhaps an evening class or group. I'm going to make a big effort to get to know the local area, and I intend to devote a new section of my blog to what we get up to, as well as local events and activities.

Also on the blogging front I'd like to get to know lots more blogs. I have a number of favourites but I know that there are loads out there that would appeal. I want to challenge myself to discover a number of 'new to me' blogs each week, and I'll share them here.

Mainly though I need to make sure that I make the most of my final six months or so of maternity leave. There isn't likely to be any more, and although I will be returning to work part-time for the time being, I will miss being able to live to my own schedule. Although it is very hard being at home with a baby and a toddler, I am loving being at home with my two little ones.

Happy New Year to all my readers!
