hello 2013

Farewell 2012, please take with you coloured jeans, earthquakes and that god damn gangnam style song!
And hello to 2013.

I like thirteen, it's my lucky number.....seriously! I have a good feeling about this year.
So, a new year always has me thinking i should be making 'resolutions' - but i think resolutions are made to be broken. So instead i made a list of hopes.
Things i hope to begin, achieve and do.
* Be more creative, sew more, paint, embroider..........create, create, create
* Eat a more healthier diet, more homegrown foods, less processed and eat when only hungry.
* Clean out every cupboard, shelf and drawer in this house and purge, purge, purge!
* Spend less, save more. Think before buying.
*More roadtrips, travelling and exploring with my family.
*Nurture my children's talents and help them explore new things.
* Redecorate our bedroom........introduce light and colour.
* Be more thoughtful and generous........let people know they are special to me.

So there you go, nothing too extravagant - all highly achievable and completely attainable.
What are your hopes for 2013? Have you made a list?


  1. great list, thanks, I may copy a heap of that, definitely achievable, and apart from the children bit, {I only have grown up ones} just about my goals for a new year. My first living alone. Your blog has already given me encouragement. thanks and may '13 be my lucky number too.

    1. Thanks lovely Lyndel, i hope 2013 is good to you. x

  2. i love your hopes list!! so similar to what I hope for 2013! i think this year will be great too...13 is a great number! happy creating, decorating, saving, cleaning, purging and enjoying life! xx

    1. Thirteen is a great number! I've made a start on most of my list.......saving may prove to be more difficult than i hoped for this little shopaholic!

  3. I didnt do new year resolutions also. I am already making life changes. This is going to be a big year for me too. Bring on 2013!

    1. I hope your 2013 is a good one - you deserve it, and from what i'm hearing your life changes are going fantastic! x

  4. Love how you start off this post :)
    and also love your hope list!
    I also gave up on resolutions and prefer to start off a new year with intention (see MY WORD for the year at: ) and a WISH LIST (which mirrors much of what you also hope for).
    All the best from the other side of the world.
