It’s been 3 days since the New Year started and I wonder how many people are looking at their ‘new year’s resolution list’ and starting to panic. I also wonder how many blogs/articles have been written about ‘new year’s resolutions’. I am sure there are too many to count, and this is just another drop in the ocean. It’s only human nature to take a closer look at your life when one year ends and another begins. Almost all of us get that feeling. You know that one when you are sitting around having a drink or two with loved ones then all of a sudden it hits you. What have I done in the last 365 days?

It’s a question that doesn’t have a straight forward answer for anyone. It certainly isn’t an easy question for me to answer.  But in a nutshell, I loved 2013. For some, it may have been unlucky 13, but for me it was the exact opposite.  I made some very positive changes in my life that resulted in making the best of friends, a relationship that couldn’t be more perfect and getting back on track with my career.

I plan to make 2014 an even better year. Like most, I have many hopes and dreams for my life. I don’t necessarily have a time frame on when I want to achieve these goals (i.e. I don’t need to be married with 3 kids by the time I’m 30). I do however have small goals that I want to achieve on a more regular basis. Such as aim for a promotion within 12 months, save money for my O/S trip this year. Every day is an adventure, so why set yourself a whole year’s worth of achievements. Take each day as it comes and celebrate the small triumphs. One of my dearest friends is doing a monthly resolution list! What a great idea. Each month she will set a new goal and concentrate on that only. This seems so much more achievable and ultimately will result in her feeling accomplished, not disheartened at the end of the year.

I hope 2014 is a fabulous year for everyone and of course enjoyed with a little wine between friends!


New year, new blog!

New year, new blog. Well new blog format. I realised late last year (still can’t believe it’s a new year!) that I really enjoy writing and want to do it more often. Therefore, my blog will no longer be only about wine. Of course wine will feature in many of my posts, however I didn’t want to be limited to just one topic. I have a lot of opinions/feelings/thoughts, so why not share them. I hope I gain new followers who appreciate a good laugh, a thoughtful opinion and of course, a great glass of wine.

Because what is life without a little wine between friends!
