Life and all that jazz

Why I’m not making New Year resolutions ✌🏼

So here we are, almost footsteps away from padding into the 1st Jan 2018. Where does the time go??

It may seem unusual a decision to not make any set of goals on 1st Jan to follow throughout the year, but for as long as I can remember I’ve never kept to more than 3 of my previous resolutions. I start with good intent and motivation then slowly dwindle after a few weeks then the rest of the year runs on without.

Instead I have decided to follow the SMART plan for this upcoming year, although this is not a new method of planning for those of you who are not familiar with this acronym I’ll type it below. 👇🏼

  • S – pecific
  • M – easurable
  • A – ttainable
  • R – elevant
  • T – ime based

Following this plan it becomes easier to break down your long term goals and see your mini achievements each month.

In the next 2 days I will create a mini example so you can see how to create your own and achieve more within the year!!

Up and out,

A poem for the young – The Ladybird’s train journey

The ladybird’s train journey

Pressed against the window,
eyes wide open to the outdoors.                             Ladybird and the window

Small dog passing by take note –
He’s got quite sharp, alarming claws!

Rattling along the worn out rails,
this is quite an adventure oh my!

If only I was in dream land too,
with an apple and blackberry pie!

It’s been quite a fun time out with my friends today,
I’ve not stopped laughing for the last half hour.

I’ve had some pretty strange looks from the humans though,
but not all of those people are sour.

Not long until I’m home now,
then I’ll pop the kettle on for some tea.

Or maybe visit Mrs. Ant’s new home for scones and jam,
I’m quite a busy bee!

It’s sunny outside as I leave the train,
I wave goodbye to my friends.

Down past the brook and right of the valley,
the train disappears around the bend.


Hope you all have a fab week, thought I’d have a little change from my regular post styles pointing towards a different age range! 🙂

Lots of love as always,
