It’s 2012! No New Year’s resolutions, this is the year of actions!
First up, all the jobs that I avoided before Christmas…like painting. Do you ever use all tactics to avoid doing something that you are not looking forward to? Well I tackled this procrastination by dedicating today to a painting job that I was anticipating to be very fiddly and difficult. But as it happened a job I was dreading turned into a peaceful day of radio and paintbrush carefully going round four door frames, four windows and kitchen units (and painting the walls in between). I even finished before kids came home from school to loot the kitchen! I am so pleased. I think the key was making sure I had enough time to do the job to the standard required – and getting on with it on a certain day. How often do we have the luxury of that?
Next up – flower farming jobs that aren’t that interesting: sorting seeds, cleaning pots, etc etc But it is all necesary to get on to the fun and creative stuff. I love the feeling of January being a new beginning and Spring on it’s way, with all the possibilities of growing before me.
