My Word For 2022 & Planning Ahead

I hope you all had a super Christmas and spent it in the way you love best. At this point in the year I always feel that Christmas is over once more and I want to get on with planning the new year ahead.  We don't bother much with new year celebrations (despite me having Scottish heritage!) so I like to dismantle the decorations on New Year's Eve in order to begin the new year with a fresh, clean slate.

We spent Christmas day with our Daughter and her family and it was extra special.  Santa forgot to come to our new bungalow, he must have forgotten we were moving, but he left some of my favourite perfume at their house 😃 A smashing turkey dinner was cooked for us followed by a tea of salad and hot nibbles.  It was lovely.

They came to us on Boxing day and I cooked a ready prepared salmon & trout roast with dauphinoise potatoes and peas followed by white chocolate & berry cheesecake.   Tea was again salad and hot nibbles followed by cup cakes.  We all felt full but not full to bursting.

When the Grandchildren had gone I found these notes tucked under the energy display thingy!  They used to write on my wall calendar but I haven't got one here so they improvised with a tiny notepad found in one of the crackers 😂  The monitor shows today's useage but I have done 3 loads of washing and some tumble drying today.  The beds were stripped, washed, dried and ironed today 😇



I never make a new year's resolution because I know I will soon fall by the wayside so I'm taking a different approach.  I have decided on a new byword for 2022 and it will be :

                       COMPASSION

Hand in hand with compassion goes kindness and I will endeavour to show more of both during the forthcoming  year.  We have been so very lucky to get our new bungalow and are hopeful that we can pass on a little of our good fortune to others in need.  I don't as yet know what we can do, or how much, but we intend to try.


A weekly food bank donation will be a good place to start.

I'm also planning a challenge from 1st January to begin our Frugal Year on a Tight Budget.  I'm just working out the details and will let you know soon how I plan it to go....

Do you have a byword for the new year? Or any resolutions?

Stay safe everyone wherever in the world you happen to be x
