Back to School!

Don't you just love September?

It is one of my favourite months of the year. You have all the optimism of a new year ~ a throwback from our school days ~ woven with the last threads of Summer: a big hotchpotch of warmth, still light evenings, squished blackberries and new stationery.

If there's one thing in life that I'm notoriously bad at, it's keeping new year resolutions. There's something about January that is just full of darkness and dread. September resolutions, on the other hand, have held far more success for me.

Summer is waving us goodbye, it's time to get down to work. Time to achieve something. This is the (school) year that I will get good at XYZ or learn to do ABC. September is a definite starting point. We're back from our hol's, we have 113 days until Christmas (aren't you glad I told you that?), and we have to achieve 123 before then. Yes, September gives us the chance to make a last ditch attempt at making the current year count, before we start thinking about what we'll do in the following year.

So, what is it that I want to do to make 2013 count?

~ finish the craft projects that I currently have on the go (sounds simple, but you don't know how many there are, and I'm not sure I do either!)
~ practise my embroidery
~ make my Christmas presents, or at least a few of them
~ organise a big 30 birthday bash for my husband
~ get Ruby on solids, in a routine, sleeping through the night in her own cot (not asking for much, eh?)
~ take Ruby to visit my friend when she has her baby in October

That's achievable... right?

Well, now that I've got it down on paper (or screen) I'll have to do it won't I?! But let's look on the bright side, there's quite a bit of crafting included on that list. I better get started!

Do you make September resolutions? Please share!

  1. I always think of September as the new year too. I think as a teacher I'm just tuned into new school year. You've inspired me to make some resolutions too - not least to shift at least a stone and a half before Christmas!
