Happy New Year!

I love New Year's resolutions but I think that what I love most of all is writing them down in a new notebook.. And that's usually where they're left untouched..
This year, no resolutions but realistic and exciting plans - most of which I've already started thinking about and/or acting on.. And I am SO looking forward to 2015 and to putting those plans into action!! I think 2015 will be a good year!

In the new year, I want to..
- enjoy my time with the boys (there's been too much shouting and fighting this year and I'm hoping for more peaceful days in the new year!)
- take up roller skating again and take part in the Friday night skate
- decorate my house walls
- take the time to be creative every day, every week, every month..
- simplify the things that take up too much time, too much hassle, too much money in my life (starting with a phone and stationery detox!)
- go on adventures, I love adventures..
- spend 1 to 1 time with all 3 of my boys and take them on adventures (I loooove adventures!)
- tackle the little projects I've had in my head for a while
- carry on enjoying Saturday mornings all to myself, browsing shops, visiting museums, sitting in nice cafes..
- sing in a choir (!!)
- run a 10K race (!!!!!)
- plan my professional future (and probably go back to studying - that's the most daunting thing on my list!)
- live in the moment and stop stressing about silly things

I also want to revive this little space (post more frequently than once a week on a Sunday..) and carry on exchanging with you lovely readers.
What are your plans?

I look forward to reading you all in the new year! xx


  1. They all sound like great plans! I was looking at roller boots this morning, I quite fancy that - though I've not done it since I was little.
    I'm also hoping to simplify and to make time to be creative more often. Happy New Year! Wishing you a wonderful 2015. xx
    (And thanks so much for your lovely comment over on my blog) x

  2. Fab plans Helene. I've loved popping in to read your posts this year. Wishing you and your boys a wonderful 2015, full of adventures (I love adventures too ;)!) Bee xx

  3. Jolies résolutions... je te souhaite de les tenir fermement et d'en tirer le meilleur pour cette année qui s'ouvre tout juste.
    Ici, elle s'est même ouverte de belle manière puisqu'à minuit, j'ai infusé le thé trouvé dans ta carte de voeux. :)
    Merci pour cette gentille attention.
    Ma carte à moi est prêt à partir et j'espère qu'elle trouvera rapidement le chemin de ton home sweet home...
    (et sinon je te rejoins sur quelques unes des choses que tu as envie de faire en 2015!!! Le premier point notamment est important pour moi).. quant au point 3... il faudra aussi que je m'y penche.
    bisous et surtout une merveilleuse année à toi et à ta famille.

  4. Happy New Year Helene! Exciting plans!
