With the chaos of Christmas behind us and the grey, lull of January already in full flow it is sometimes hard to see our goals. I usually enter January with an optimistic bounce, hopeful I WILL achieve whatever chuff I’ve decided is important this year.
This year is an exception, though. I am so utterly exhausted I cannot even see where the weekend is, let alone Spring! Last year, my sole intention was to calm down and, as with every other year, I have epically failed yet again! Yes, I have reduced my shouting because I now practice the art of Public Parenting (on the blog soon!) but ever other element of my life has not seen a stitch of calmness!
For once, however, I am not entirely to blame for my failure to meet my own expectations. I have had a rather stressful six months and, like last year I need to recognise my minor achievements.
I kept my kids alive (again), left the house
everymost days, managed another haircut oh, and moved my entire life across the continent! No biggie…
So, in 2017 I am taking a hiatus from new year intentions and instead I am giving myself a break. Our new house is frustratingly close to being habitable, I can’t even articulate how much I want to sleep in my own bed again and I have over 20 half-finished British Maple posts for you beautiful people to yawn over. I am taking a break and will #BRB in a few weeks time.
Follow me on Instagram (@thebritishmaple) where I will
recycle link up some of my favourite drivellings from 2016, keep you updated on housey shit and post some semi-arty snaps of my gorgeous boys!
See you on the other side, folks! x
