It has been quite a while since I last posted! The last few months have disappeared so quickly with a big project that I have been working on at work, lots of socialising and going to gym classes and the inevitable prepartion needed in the run up to Christmas.
I was relieved to finish work until the new year, yesterday, giving me time to relax a little as I will be having a full house over Christmas. With food shop delivered and put away, pressies wrapped and spare room tidied, I am planning on a Christmas pamper session with the girls this afternoon including face packs, sparkly nail varnish and a Christmas film.
I did manage to get a day off in early December to do some Christmas shopping in Bath and the outfit above is what I wore. I now have 2 organic cotton dresses from EKO and they are definitely favourites of mine for being super comfy but with a flattering fit. During the winter, I rarely wear a winter coat and for going in and out of shops decided that this Karen Millen denim and leather waistcoat which I got second hand from Oxfam would be warm enough.
This morning I have also been reflected a little on 2016.
What a year!
I turned 40 in April and had a big party to celebrate. After months of studying in the evenings, I managed to complete my CIM Diploma in Digital Marketing. I got promoted at work and got the go ahead for an exciting project which which will launch in early January. I travelled to Italy, Ibiza and Madrid, all firsts for me, as well as lots of campervan trips, some festivals, a walking trip in the Gower and sailing in Torquay. I also have a busy family life with the children having lots activities and doing between 6 and 8 fitness classes per week myself. I am convinced the fitness classes help me feel great and stay calm and very happy!
I doubt whether I will have quite as busy year in 2017 but I am already super excited about what it holds. My main priorities are to stay happy and healthy but I also plan to:
- Try to consume less
- Recycle more
- Start scuba diving again (I haven’t dived in about 15 years)
- Keep up the fitness classes
- Keep blogging
What are your favourite memories of 2016 and plans for 2017?
With warmest wishes
