Things on Thursday – New Years Resolutions


I am linking up with Tings Mom for Things on Thursday today :)

I actually wasn’t going to post about New Years Resolutions/goals because then I need to check back at the end of the year and I suck at seeing things through BUT I am determined to be more organised (this MAY be my word for the year) this year and then came across the post so I decided to do it.

So here they are – my goals for 2013

    • IMG_8412
  • Plan and execute the perfect wedding.
  • Loose 10kg – really this 10kg has remained with me all through 2012 – ENOUGH now!
  • Sew – I am still having a stand off with the sewing machine but I there is so much I want to make that I need to get over it.
  • Compete in at least 1 BSG triathalon with David – I really didn’t want to put this one on – it seems so huge but I actually really do want to do it.
  • Be more organised!
  • Continue with my gym routine of 5 days a week.
  • Attend the meditation retreat at the Budhist Temple in Bronkhorstspruit – if anyone is looking for a birthday gift for me – THIS would be it!!!!!
  • Learn how to bake bread!
  • Be a better friend.
  • Have more fun!

What are some of the things on your list?

    Cocktail Rolls
    450 g cake flour 1 sachet instant dried yeast
    320 ml lukewarm water 10 ml salt
    2 tablespoons oil 10 ml sugar
    selection of seeds, coarse salt, etc.
    Mix the flour, yeast, salt, oil and water together to form a smooth dough. Place on a floured surface and knead for about two minutes until smooth and pliable. Now place the dough into a greased packet in a bowl of hot water and allow to prove for about 15 – 20 minutes, until doubled in size.
    Knead again for about 2 minutes and shape as desired then place on greased baking sheet and allow to prove for a second time for about 10 minutes. Bake in a pre-heated oven of 180°C for about 15 minutes until golden.

    Good luck with all the wedding planning. I have some goals (I prefer that term to resolution) similar to yours – get back to going to the gym 5 to 6 times a week, eat better and shed loads of weight and do a 5km race (I do lots of 5, 8 and 10km walks, but would ne good to run) if I can get the all clear from the physio.

    I love it! Organising is such a huge part of my word (simplify) this year. You have some wonderful goals. My only goal is to stick to simplifying my life 😉

    I would also like to make my own bread. I am actually thinking of buying a bread maker. Not sure if it is worth it though.
    Some of the things on my list include saving a certain amount of money and doing a half marathon. I wanted to do the two oceans but I suspect I may not be ready (and to be honest, the thought of the crowds freak me out) so I’m going to (hopefully) do one later in the year – one of the lesser known ones. And I REALLY need to get organised with my kids and their issues. Have all their stuff (reports from therapists and school and clinic cards etc) in ONE folder. It’s a nightmare when I need something specific so want to make them each a file. Also there are 2 big-ticket (read: expensive) items that I need to work towards buying.

    I’m in awe of how many resolutions people have come up with. I can’t come up with one! Maybe because I already have enough on my to-do list…
