We had a very quiet New Years Eve, just me, Maddie and Alfie. We toasted the New Year in with a Calypso coffee, cup of tea and a slurp of water!
I love seeing in the New Year, it feels like such a fresh start, and this year is certainly a biggy for us here at Buckingham's Palace. I turn 40 in less than two weeks and Maddie is 18 in June, I can't believe how quickly the time has gone!
I haven't really made any resolutions this year, just a few things that I want to concentrate on:
1. I want to manage my time better.
2. I want to put myself first more.
3. I want to read more - my reading has slipped a bit since I stopped getting the bus and started walking to work.
4. Be more spontaneous, I am already quite spontaneous but I want to take it to another level this year.
Talking of being spontaneous, I started yesterday - how good it that? Paul saw the New Year in at Disneyland Paris, how lovely I hear you say but I can assure you it's awful. I worked there at New Year for five years and it is freezing. You would be totally surprised (maybe) and gobsmacked (possibly) if I tell you the amount of parents who take their children to Disneyland Paris, at New Year and don't think they'll need a coat! Do they think that the sunshine in Disneyland Florida is provided by Disney and they'll be afforded the same weather in Paris? It always ends in tears (and blue lips) before midnight. Anywhoo I have totally digressed. Paul was returning to the UK yesterday and was having to make a stop at Clacket Lane services, a mere 50 minute drive from me! What did the new, spontaneous Jo do? She hopped in the car just to spend a mere 30 minutes with her man, not only that but she remembered to take a photo so she could write all about it in her Document 2012 album!
Yesterday I cracked on with my JYC album and managed the first 8 days!
