NY Resolutions: Update 1.

I thought I'd do an update on how my to-do list for this year is going.. 2 months down, 10 to go! I think it's going pretty well so far :) If you missed my NY resolutions/to-do list post and fancy a ganders, click here.

Lose weight - As I said before, I don't want to put pressure on myself by saying I want to lose X amount but my goal was to not put on anymore weight by the end of this year. I started Slimming World (got the books off Ebay) near the end of January, Aaron is doing it with me and we're really enjoying it because unlike Weight Watchers, it doesn't feel restrictive. So far I've lost just over a stone :D Chuffed much! I'll be doing whole posts dedicated to this soon.

Job - Still no luck on that front. I've applied for everything I can but heard nothing back, suprise suprise. I was looking into volunteering today.. It may not be paid work but I could learn new skills, it will give me something to do until I do find a job and it will look good on my CV.

Divorce - It's all one massive headache! Good news though, we're going to be having a commitment ceremony next year (which is basically exactly the same as a wedding, just without the legal bit) and then we will tackle the divorce at a later date (then go away for a weekend to marry legally, without the fuss as we'd have already done that bit), when it's less likely to make too many problems arise (exes are merrrr!) To us, a wedding is about showing our love and commitment to each other in front of close friends and family - those we love. So I don't feel like I'm missing out, I'll still wear a gorgeous dress, we'll say vows and exchange rings, have a meal, a party and a honeymoon and I'll still change my name :) Bring it on!

Blog - My followers have really increased since Christmas time and I've noticed I get more comments now which I love :) I love that there is a small handful of people I get on well with and would love to make more friends too. I wish there was more bloggers in East Anglia so a meet up was worth doing. Unfortunately I've come across a few people I haven't been so keen on too. That's life though!

Camera - Much to the kitties annoyance, I'm getting better with my camera. They're not too keen on having the camera shoved in their little faces nearly every day but when they look cute cuddled up together next to me on the sofa, how can I resist ;)

Get out more - We haven't done an awful lot this month but I bet most of us are in the same boat, not having too many pennies after Christmas.. Unless you're super duper rich of course. We did go out to an Indian restaurant for dads birthday though which was really yummy and out to a pub with my sister and her other half which was good. We're planning on going to Chimichangas sometime this month as we've never been! :O And tomorrow we're off out for a meal with Aarons parents then to Jimmys Farm as Aarons mum really wants to go. We should be able to go out a lot more now we have a new car - our old one (Peugeot 206 hdi) was rubber ducked so we never dared go too far, then the head gasket went so we got a new one, a lovely Peugeot 206 convertible :D Roll on summer when we can put the roof down!

Our new pug :)

How are you getting on with your new years resolutions? xxx


  1. Sounds like good things are happening then Tiffy! So happy for you! :) xxx

  2. You're doing super well with your resolutions. I never made any this year because I never stick to them lol!

    I love your new car by the way! I was looking into either one like yours or a Renault Megane Cabriolet convertible for my next car but completely unsure which one to have haha, the pugs are so small and cute though!

    P.S I've added your blog button to my blogroll page on my blog :)

    1. I don't normally so I'm determined this year lol :)
      I'd say Peugeot all the way! Not a Renault fan, too unreliable!
      Aw thank you! Will return the favour :) xx

  3. I've been thinking the same, I rarely come across and East Anglian bloggers! I thought there would be loads especially in Norwich with the whole fashion vibe it has going on!
    It would be great to do a meet up!

    Love your car too and well done for sticking to them, I fail at resolutions!


    1. Yeah I thought there would be more from Norwich and Cambridge areas especially.. They must be hidden! lol x
