Simplify

After what turned into a busy year, i thought it was time to take a breather.  Turns out that 2014 is looking to be even busier!  But, in the spirit of actually sticking with something this year, 2014 is getting named.

SIMPLIFY

Everything.  The things i do, the things i use. The things i am trying to be.  Really, just Everything.
Last year, when things got busy, i lost sight of the important stuff rather quickly.  This year I'd rather lose sight of the things that complicate my life....This really isn't as deep as it sounds, but let's carry on!
After a few weeks of thoughts and dreams and all sorts of other illogical things going through my mind, i have managed to come up with my simple solution to my 'hectic' life.  Less facebook.  Less Candy crush.  Less Pinterest (don't expect that one to last).  Less gadgets.  Less Crap food.  Less Business.  Less pressure to do.
 More family time.  More outside time.  More actual thinking.  More reading (real books).  More time in the kitchen.  More time in the garden.  More photo's.  More goal setting and dreaming.  More creating stuff (not children, in case you were asking, my wee lads are awesomeness enough!).  More being in the moment instead of being too busy. 
And yes, I'd like to blog more!  Which was the original point to this post and i got side tracked with my simplify tangent...any who!  This blog is going back to basics (I sound like a budget pack of noodles).  I will be posting in my usual random way about whatever i feel like (I sound like I'm 5...i promise I'm not!)  But i will be de-cluttering and just blogging because i love to write really!  There may end up being a garden post, or a recipe post, or a pinterest post ('cause lets face it, i can't give up pinterest!).  There will def' be family posts and pics!! (Just for you mum!)  and who knows what else really!  I'll also be changing back to a .blogspot (maybe time for a name change??) because i would rather be tight with our budget than pay for a spot on the web!
So if you're still here, 'Hey!' Thanks for hanging in there! (Please know that i still read every ones blogs each week, even though I've been such a slacker with commenting!!)

I think we're back on track!! :)

    1. It really is hard sometimes!! We'll get there though! I'm very envious of your no telly life style, im guilty of leaving ours on to amuse the kids way too often (in some ridiculous way i'm terrified that i wont be able to amuse my boys if i turn it off!) Happy New year to you and your family too! :)

  2. Awesome! and good for you for wanting to simplify your life. It doesn't mean life has to be boring, we just tend to notice the important things in life which are the little things and to take things slow, enjoying the moment. Glad you're getting back into blogging.
    Blessings.

    1. Thanks Grace! I love reading/seeing all the things you guys do as a family, sometimes it's a simple walk or a meal somewhere, but you're all just hanging out and having fun! I hope the weather's being a bit kinder to you!

  5. I can so relate to all of this post! I have just been writing a post about why I blog and also considering deactivating my facebook account. I have tv free days sometimes too.
    It's amazing how happy it makes my girls when I really put my whole self into playing with them, without distractions (phone, tv, laptop). It's hard to do in this electronic world we live in but so worth it. It is easy to forget they are only small for such a short time!
    Anyhoo simplify sounds perfect to me! :)
