We are heading for a new life in France or at least we will be very soon. It is a time of new beginnings so a good time to reflect on what needs to change.
Time for a change or two
- I refuse to accept that just about managing is OK in a family where both parents work so hard.
- I intend to spend far more quality time with my family instead of constantly putting work too high up my agenda.
- I want to get hold of my health and fitness which has gone pear-shaped since I started dreaming a little dream of France just over a year ago.
- I am looking forward to spending time in the kitchen cooking up a storm including my late Mum’s folder of recipes.
- I will make our home education journey even more magical and include my released from GCSEs teen in the mix.
- I won’t be buying books and associated tat and will live with fewer possessions.
- I resolve to start treating the men in my life a little kinder rather than always pushing away or looking for the witty and too often hurtful one-liner.
- I promise to mouth less about injustice unless I am actively doing something to help.
- I will be far more sociable and welcoming rather than living in partly self-imposed isolation.
- Through all this I will remember on Father’s Day and from hereon in what my lovely Dad always told me “Put your shoulders back and remember you are as good as anyone else, no better but just as good”.
Blogging for the joy of it
I am looking forward to blogging for the joy of it on here without any agenda except just ensuring we are making and recording positive memories.
A new life in France
What else should I be setting in place for our new life in France?
