Happy New Year everyone, wishing you health, peace and happiness for 2017 and look forward to your much appreciated visits and comments. This usually is the time of year we make resolutions and I for one, tend not to make them. However, since starting this food blog “food and tools” five years ago I’ve accumulated lots of “stuff.” To begin with, I already had lots of “stuff” but my little hobby has left me with bulging cupboards and shelves. Even my computer is telling disk space is full. De-cluttering and self-discipline is much needed.
I was thinking my resolution for 2017 should be… over the next twelve months no more buying cookbooks or food magazines and, no more buying kitchen paraphanellia either. I mentioned this to the kids and they immediately laughed and said “Mum, you wont last a day”… slightly exaggerated I would say! Anyways, I thought about this statement further and in my head I could hear the excuses. What if I see a quirky spoon or dish or, a kitchen gadget to die for that I may never come across again. Or, a cookbook that has the most amazing recipes. What if I travel and see souvenirs for my blog or kitchen. Oh dear… already setting myself up for failure. But seriously, I am planning on doing some decluttering, letting some food magazines and cookbooks go and making better use of the ones that stay. And truly, do not plan on accumulating more “stuff”… well at least for the next year.
What do you think of new years reslouiotns?
