2011 Goals

It's going to be a year of peace for me, I need it to be.

I will be returning to more simple ground roots and these are my goals:

Present myself as I want to appear, get back into my hippie styles that I adore.

Live each day in the moment.

Put time and energy into my relationship.

Show my kids I love them by providing ROUTINE.

Get all bills up to date and focus on debt reduction and savings.

Learn to listen with an open mind, not with preset responses already waiting on the tip of my tongue.

Serve my soul by meditation and time with horses, my passion.

Love my husband unconditionally for the man he is and support him in achieving his dreams.

Organise myself and create more time.

And of course:

Lose weight and get fit and healthy.

2010: The Summary

Firstly, what a fast year!!!

- Had bad fall after around 4 riding sessions a week where I developed abs and my seat back again. Started with a personal trainer.

- Pulled out of my equine course days before the start date due to exorbidant childcare costs.

- Blair's Mum had a heart attack and died three days later, horrific time watching someone slowly die. Family arguments afterwards resulted in Blair not talking to any of his family since April.

- All the kids had whooping cough. Sian ended up in hospital with complications and pneumonia.

- Signed up for a house in Oxford with ten acres and full dressage arena, stables and round pen. Pulled out when we couldn't leave our little community.

- Struggled back and forth with indecision over whether to go back to tertiary professional level study, try for Equine course again, find a job or just chill. Got offered part time unpaid work with local Endurance legend and her team of horses. Have learnt so much in three months. Horses make my soul sing.

- Found a house, signed up for 2 years and now feel more settled location-wise than ever. Still up in the air over the study/career path thingy.

- It's been a tough end to the year, I have more animals than I can throw a stick at and there has been plenty of marital unrest.
