I think fresh is the perfect word for the first week of the new year. There have been fresh starts, food and very fresh weather. I’m well aware that you can set new goals or resolutions at any point in the year but there’s something extra special about doing it at the start of a new year.
I started to declutter and deep clean in the run up to new year. All the new toys and games needed a place to go and I love starting the new year off with a clutter-free home. We also sold some of the things we decluttered which has given our holiday savings a boost.
There will also be fresh new paint in the kids bedrooms which they are very excited about indeed.
I’ve been working on my monthly goals and also the big goals for 2018. Nothing like a new year for a new start. We have also been eating lots of fresh food in a bid to be healthier, something which is well overdue .
Fresh new pages have been written on in both my journals.
I couldn’t finish before mentioning the rather windy weather we have experienced this week. Storm Eleanor raged on Tuesday night and we woke to a fallen tree in our road. Luckily Chris managed to swerve his van around it to get to work the next morning. The school run was certainly interesting that morning too, we all held hands a little tighter that’s for sure !
