As its the start of a new year, then its time to make resolutions that I'd love to be able to say come December 2010 I've managed to keep!!
1 - Spend more time with MrVV - just the 2 of us.
Managed to make a tick against that on Sunday night when the boys went out to a badminton club party & tournament. Just me & MrVV for dinner - cue grownup looking table ;)
2 - Keep the house at an acceptable level of tidyness - not house proud but also not in need of a visit by Kim & Aggie! Also accept that I am as messy as everyone else and I can't complain about their mess if my stuff is everywhere too!
3 - Learn to knit. Am prepared for S&B group on Wednesday. Have bought my needles and some dishcloth cotton (might as well make something useful with my first attempts!).
4 - Not diet but eat smaller portions and cut down on the naughty foods.
5 - Praise the boys as well as nag them! With that in mind, I'll do a blog praise of big son. Now he's not one for sport - infact in his first 13 1/2 years he's not shown much keeness on doing it. Ok so he swims quite well and cycles with MrVV & little son some weekends but sport in general has not interested him. However when he started High School in September he got dragged to badminton club by a friend - he got on ok and decided he'd join little son at his club on a Wednesday night. Well last night Bigson & a partner won the inter-club fun tournament!! He was dead chuffed with himself and we were chuffed with him :)
Now I think 5 things is enough to be getting on with - anymore and I'd fail before the end of the month!!
The boys are back to school tomorrow - think we've found everything they need. I start my new life as a SAHM - am sure I'll miss my old job but not the politics that came with it.
We've been promised snow which could make the day interesting for all - boys hoping school might be closed and me hoping its not!!
Have a good week
