It’s the 1st month of 2017 and the first month of the year is nearly almost over. It has certainly been a new start to me as I have already started implementing the changes which I stated in my resolutions.
It can be difficult thinking about what to do this year to make it a meaningful year for you. One may have to sit down and focus to be able to come up with something.
For those who are still thinking or muddling over what to do this year here are 20 ideas to make it the best year ever for you.
Make a conscious effort to de-clutter your surroundings.
Visit new places
Make new friends
Re-connect with old friends/ acquaintances
Take up a course
Learn a new language
Re-commit to a exercise regime
Eat clean / healthy
Focus on yourself before others
Learn from the past and DON’T repeat it.
Remove the bad apples and keep the good apples in your life
Stay away from unnecessary drama (from other people)
January has been absolutely madness as we ease into the 3 kid in full day school routine. There has been so many things that have been dragged over from 2016 that was not done due to the school holidays. I couldn’t find the time to really sit down and finish up with my blogging commitments.
The kids and I went out a lot during the December holidays. During one of the outings Tiger girl met both the Gingerbread Man and Santa Claus at one of the malls we were in. She also received a balloon sculpture rabbit from the Christmas party we attended. It’s really cute how by twisting two different colored balloons one can form a rabbit.
We ate out a lot during the school holidays and I really need to cut down on eating out as it is really super expensive and has been burning a hole in my pocket.
Creme Brulee is one of the desserts that I love eating and it was a real treat to be able to eat it at a restaurant. I personally have yet to try to make that sweet dessert at home as one would need a blow torch to achieve the caramelized top in that dish.
Chocolate Lava Cake is the other sweet dessert which I love savoring. This is a dessert which I need to get around baking . I love how the chocolate oozes out of the heated cake. Having it paired with vanilla ice-cream is really heavenly.
