New year resolutions?

AA very happy new year everyone!!!! Have a fabulous one!!
I feel like I need to make resolutions. New year resolutions. I feel like I HAVE to make them. Usually every year I make them. As the Thirty First night wanes & a new day & a new year begins. I also usually put them on paper.

But this year I didn't. Maybe it was because I was busy sewing up a saree jacket to wear with my new saree to work today. (Did I mention that I'm back in the dreary workforce again?).

So, here I am still deciding on my new year resolutions.

On a side note, remember my "going to learn a craft a month" resolution? I learnt to crochet a granny square. (I kind of learnt it in November but I finally made granny square coasters in earth colours and I love them)

I also finally sewed a saree jacket by myself. As mentioned earlier as I started this in the fianl hours of December 2009 & finished in the first hours of January 2010 I wonder if it qualifies to be my craft of the month for January 2010.

Forget craft. What did I do in 2009?

I left the workplace I had worked for five years.I was unemployed for 8 months. With no unemployment benefits by the way.(We don't have them here). Started blogging. Found out how much I like handy crafts.Started writing a book. Started working again.

Found out that love indeed is your saving grace. Yes it is. 

I need to tell my parents that without them I don't know where I'd be.

To my brother, I'm glad I have you to pet & spoil.

To my sweet little sister, you have always been there for me, and I hope I have been for you too.

To my love, my one true love, you're the butter to my bread & the breath to my life.

For all of these people, I'm resolved to be a better person. In every way.  

Happy new year everyone, Here's to new beginnings & first steps.
