Resolutions, Diets & Rewrites

Look what I found sitting as if it were still August in my garden! I ambled out to the shed this morning to...well, to see it and found this poppy looking so colourful and cheery in an otherwise rather barren garden and thought I should share it with you.

I have a wonderfully positive feel about 2008. I've no idea why but I can't shake the feeling that 2008 is going to be truly fabulous. Here's hoping!

Well I have allowed myself one of dh's specialities, a superb cooked breakfast with all the trimmings but after today I'm on a diet. I am aiming to cut out wheat and dairy as I know from tests - and from not having them in my diet - that I feel far better without them. I also weigh less!!! I also intend exercising more and let's face it it isn't as if I don't have someone to walk with.

The main part of 2008 is to concentrate on my rewrite, scrub up my other manuscripts and start sending them out. No one is going to know if I can pruduce decent work if I keep it stacked in the shed!

So here's to a happy, healthy, safe and productive 2008. xxx

I've got a really good feeling about 2008 as well! And I have no idea why! Let's hope we are both right!

Happy New Years! I am glad to hear you feel so positive about 2008. It makes me feel more positive about it as well!

You have a poppy in January???
Your last paragraph is genius. And so right on the button.
Only good times ahead.

ray-anne - yes, a poppy in January! I couldnt believe it when I saw it so I had to take a photo. It certainly cheered up an otherwise gloomy garden.
