2020

The first day of a new year and a new decade. We tend to look at the New Year as a fresh start, new beginnings etc. 2019 wasn't a great year in many ways.  It saw the end of a 38 year friendship which caused a lot of nastiness in my life and tension in my marriage. I said a sad goodbye to some friends and ex colleagues, but life goes on.  I'm not going to make any huge life changing predictions or resolutions, I just want to do the best I can in everything I do. I've already said previously I'm going to try my hardest to reduce the amount of plastic I bring home. I'm also committed toducing our meat intake and getting my cholesterol level down.  I  walk everyday with my Bertie and this will continue come rain or shine and if I manage to lose half a stone I'll be chuffed. 
The contract is signed and I'm hoping the house sale will be done and dusted by the end of January, which means we enjoy more financial security and some treats. I'm looking at some coastal cottages to hire, ones that are pet friendly as I want to get Bertie used to travelling and staying away. 


I'll continue to live and shop using all my frugal skills because I hate waste and if I can get a bargain then it makes good sense. In fact I'm heading to the shops this week, armed with a list  to see what I can pick up for Birthday presents throughout the year. I'm going to attempt a new hobby and I'll let you know how I get on.

I'm only going to post a couple of times a week as I believe this is more realistic with Bertie being so young. He is time consuming but I'm totally in love and he's enriched my life in so many ways.  He on the other hand found Christmas  totally exhausting.😂

Happy New Year to one and all. X

  10. I can't believe your friend would throw away 38 years of friendship over moving to a different country. Wonder how happy they are if they did move.
