Happy 2015....How did I do with last years resolutions?!

First of all, a very belated Happy New Year! I hope 2015 is already going swimmingly for you and the post Christmas blues haven't set in.  Secondly, where have I been?! For the most part I have been without a laptop and have only had phone access to the Internet (blogger just wasn't happening let alone posting) and for the other little bits I'm afraid to say that work just took over.

I haven't made any resolutions this year as there's nothing major I want to change ( Other than to blog more!) but for now, everything is where I want it to be. So I thought I would check over how well I did on last years resolutions!

1. Fill 4 scrapbooks

I filled 2 and made a photo book....nearly!
2. Write more letters
3. Blog more - at least once a week
 I did try! It's sometimes so hard when you are working all of the time and by the time you come home it's dark and you are ready for bed!

4. Read at least 6 books (my reading has taken a back seat lately to my computer!)

5. Sell something in my Etsy Shop (Coming soon!)

6. Do a craft fair

Never enough time in the days!

7. Worry less - a constant problem of mine that is unhealthy!

Yes and No - I have my moments (sometimes prolongued moments) but I have tried to be more logical and rational about my worries.

8. See more of my friends, at home or around the country

9. Visit somewhere new in England

10. Learn some new recipes from scratch

11. Making something on my new sewing machine
It's still in it's box......oh dear!

12. Go abroad

13. Host a giveaway

14. Be grateful for what I have. I spent a lot of 2013 looking at other peoples lives and wishing for better things but when I look back, I have a lot to be thankful for and need to put things in perspective more.
Again, partly achieved but usually as an after thought. Social media and a strong desire to achieve doesn't help this though.

10 out of 14 is not bad at all! Most of those have made my life in 2014 happier and mentally healthier which is something I am always trying to do.

What are your new years resolutions?
