So, I thought that since we are past the first month of the year, I would update you all on how I'm doing with my 'resolutions'. I have been thinking about writing this up for a while, but I've been either too busy or too tired!
The first few weeks of this year kind of threw off my hope to watch less TV. There was a death in my boyfriend's family. It was (obviously) a very sad time, where sitting watching rubbish and just thinking was the order of the day. However, I did put effort into reading. I have completed two more of the books in The Morganville Vampire series, which I am enjoying a lot! I'm a bit of a freak for teen-fantasy-fiction type books.
I have also only just started painting again, but I did recently buy a case of my own and the set of Orc Warbosses and have put together one on foot and another on his boar which I am looking forwards to painting… once I have done four more Night Goblins. Because otherwise I'll never get them done! Thankfully I had a long morning today, which is why I have started painting these little guys and why I have the time to update this blog.
I have recently accepted an invitation to a party with a group of ladies I have only met a few times, which is a daunting idea for me. This is probably the only example I have of saying 'Yes', but it's a good start!
At the end of last month I managed to not only remember, but also buy presents for, my brother and one of my good friend's birthdays, which is something I wouldn't normally manage do. In fact I sent all my siblings cheques last year to do with as they wished. I really enjoyed doing it this way, though. Now to just keep it up for the next 11 months. And since it was my brother's birthday, I've also managed to see my siblings and dad… and talked to my mum for help picking presents! I've also organised to go and see my sister at University next month during my week off and will have to talk about going to my mum's one weekend to see my 'baby' sister for a couple of hours.
On the Ceroc front, I have been told that they no longer need my help. This means that I won't be able to afford to go as much as I was hoping to… however, I hope to be able to go at least once a month and might have to find something else to fill the gap.
So, yeah. It's not going so bad, me thinks. I hope that everyone reading this is also having a good 2011 so far!
