Two projects

Just a little Sunday morning surfing discovered these cute ideas. I am sure to be making some of these soon!

I would really like to make this Garden Pillow, I am really hoping that we can get our garden sorted this year to be able to have a few garden parties.

My mum got a kindle for Christmas and I think she would really like a cute bag to keep it safe in. This is a needed project instead of just want to make :)

Ice! Ice on my car!!

This morning I was fortunate to be running a little ahead of myself and it really was fortunate.

I went outside and the air was really cold so I thought I had better touch the car just to see and there was the ICE!!!

It was only a little bit of piece so I managed to scrape it off and clear the condensation with the blowers.

My whole day today has been quite lovely, Andy is home early tonight and the sky just made me feel so peaceful all day. I feel like I am in a good place, finally!

So I didn't end up sticking with the diet, thats for another day. I did however switch to Weight Watchers and well its a slower progress but hopefully a more long term one.

This is how I spent my evening, giving apparently some much needed love to Mr.Tibbs, I think the little love felt neglected!

I have been thinking a lot lately about where I want to be in my life so be prepared for more from me. More tutorials, more updates and just more of the things I enjoy doing. I just feel like I really want to make this my priority.

I also feel incredibly grateful for an insight into this ladies life. This is a blog I regularly follow because she is honest and inspiring - I can not wait to see what her wedding turns out like!!!

Day 1 - diet

I am not sure if this is something I will be able to keep on top of daily but I really want to make sure I have posts to keep track of and help keep me motivated.

Today is my first day following a total meal replacement diet. I am slightly nervous about sharing all of my thoughts on here because I am sure they will be quite personal. All I know is I have felt for a few months now that I need to find myself again, I have had some big changes the last few years. A lot of them turning out very differently to how I imagined them to be, in good ways just that take a different kind of adjustment.

Another motivating factor is the cost of the diet! I don't wish to disclose it but I definitely know that it will motivate me not wanting to waste money!

Changing my husband and I's habits for the better to instill some kind of positive habits for the future is a sub goal I want to come out of this diet. I want to get rid of the unnecessary problems that come from being overweight.

Obviously the way I look and feel about my body are also quite encouraging and my skinny clothes box in our loft is a very pretty consideration! Just as wearing those clothes and feeling like my 18 year old self will be amazing!!!

How do you cope with dieting? Has anyone done the Lipotrim and has any advice for me?

My 2012 post

So I feel like this is something I really want documented for my own sanity to read through and feel like my little life is headed somewhere I want to be.

My biggest mission in 2012 is my health, over the last couple of years my relationship has been the biggest focus of my life. I don't regret a single moment - how could I, I just know that a lot of the things I would like to do, I currently stop myself from doing because I am afraid. I know that it is mostly in my mind set but I want to bring healthiness into our family too.

I feel like 2012 is about me and finding room for me to be the person and the wife I want to be. This means making the efforts to see my friends and doing the crafty things I enjoy.

Graduating!! This will be a huge focus of my time for the first half of the year, I can't wait to be finished and have achieved a long term goal but to have achieved something I have always planned.

Building my craft stall/etsy shop/blog will come after my degree and this has to be one of my most anticipated targets of the year. To sell my first item will be a momentous day for me.
