Last years resolutions revisited (and a few new ones) :)

Hi Ladies,

So this time last year I posted my new years resolutions for 2012. As we have just entered 2013 I thought I would take a look back so see how I did with last years resolutions and make a couple of new ones for this year :)

My resolutions from 2012

1) To wear my glasses more - Did I manage this? hmmmm well I have worn my glasses but not as often as I intended. I wear daily contact lenses which are pretty expensive so wearing my glasses more would help me save some pennies, this is something I think I need to continue to try to do in 2013! 

2) To decorate my new room and keep it tidy! - Yes! I am all moved into my new, fully decorated room now and I love it so much! I have definitely worked hard at keeping it tidy (see you later floordrobe!) and although it does get a bit messy sometimes if I've been busy I never leave it too long before I give it a good spruce up. Pat on the back for me!

3) To blog once a week - I'm not sure I quite managed this, but I did try to update my blog as regularly as possible and this is something I will hopefully continue to do in 2013 :)

4) Start Saving! - Nope, I did not manage this at all! this is something I need rather than want to do in 2013. I have a pretty epic trip coming up this summer and I need to save all the money I can for it so this is something I really need to concentrate on!

(maybe this is something my new Percy money box can help me with!?)

5) Don't Worry Be Happy - I think I did start to worry less towards the end of this year, so lets hope I can carry that on into 2013! 

6) Get Cooking! - Yep I am so pleased I conquered gluten free cooking this year! me and my friend arranged to cook for one another once a week over the past year and this has really helped me try out new recipes and get adventurous with my gluten free cooking. Over the past year I have really enjoyed gluten free baking, I made 3 Birthday cakes, hundreds of cupcakes, and even my first ever Christmas cake! 

So all in all I don't think I did too badly, and thus I am going to make a few new resolutions for 2013 to add on to those I didn't quite manage from last year.

1. Time Manage - 2013 is going to be a really busy year for me, and I really need to get super organised and start using my time as effectively as possible, be it making endless lists or creating some sort of timetable!

2. Sleep - I have a terrible sleep pattern, I stay up far too late then wonder why I'm tired all day?! This year I want to start going to bed earlier and hopefully sleeping better. Tips anyone?!

3. Make time for friends - This year I really want to try and make sure I make the effort to spend time with my friends old and new :)

and that's everything, I hope you had a fantastic New Year, and here's to 2013!


  1. I'm so pleased you commented on my post Daisy, otherwise I probably never would have found your blog. Absolutely love it, youve gained a new follower in me:)

    Well done with the resolutions as well, mine were a complete failure by the end of day 1 ha. Would love to see some GF recipes too, always nice to see other people posting about eating gluten-free too!
