Looking back, going ahead

Today is rotten weather. Really I can’t express how yuck it is out there. Wet, grey, miserable. I was really beginning to worry about all four of us being cooped up in here again but so far it hasn’t been too bad, thanks to a reprise of the cbeebies panto (again!), some chocolate, a viewing of Follow That Bird and now the Sesame Street Christmas album.

We are companionably pottering about and my head is caught between tidying up the new toys here and thoughts of the coming year and my one little word. Last year’s was ‘complete’ but I can’t say I was totally faithful to it. In fact I think I was attempting to fool myself. This year I shall pick a word more in line with the ‘Now Habit’ and ‘6 things’. I’m not going to make resolutions but I am going to list some goals for the coming year and some things I’d like to try.

And so, the wind whirls, Elmo sings and I think on.
