My last post this year of 2011

To be honest, I will be glad when this year ends. It hasn't been a bad year as such, but I am ready now to say goodbye to a somewhat strange year and welcome in 2012. I am hoping that 2012 will be a good year for my family and friends and not to sound too selfish but I hope it is a good year for me too. I'm not that mushy about new year as such but I am hoping it will be the beginning of the fresh start I need. Not working for a month now has given me time to think about some of the things I want out of my life in 2012. I need to change my attitude and some aspects of my life need an overall. I'm hoping the changes I am thinking about will be achieveable goals/targets rather than the proverbial resolutions that we so often make come the 1st of January and are forgotten about by the 30th of January.

My first goal that I want to share now (ahead of the 1st) concerns this blog. Firstly, some of you may have noticed I have changed the design template. I could have left that until the 1st but I feel that changing it a day before leads me into the direction I want to head into come midnight tomorrow night.

My aspiration for this blog is that I visit it more often and share more. Currently I have only been posting very sporadically. This is mainly because I haven't felt very creative and thus I haven't wanted to share much on the blog. I think. partly it is due to the lull I have been feeling post being made redundant. I haven't settled into a routine yet and to be honest I've been really lazy. Projects that have been swimming in my head for months just haven't come to fruition. JYC is non existant and I hardly made any Christmas cards this year. Thus today, I have given myself a little talking to and said to myself this. "That is all in the past. Just move on from today and start again tomorrow afresh with a new attitude".

My goal now is to post on a more regular basis. I'm not giving myself a large target such as every day as I know I will not do that, but I am sure I can at least post a couple of times a week. Plus I am hoping that I will still continue with the Colour Blog Hop once a month and 10 on the 10th. I'll be realistically happy if I can at least post 10 times a month.

My next post will be on the 1st where I will share some other apsirations for the year 2012

Good evening from Pickle Land

I hope to speak to you very soon

Love Lesley xx

Happy Birthday to Me

Its my Birthday.  I am 42 years old.  Wow, how did that happen?????? Is still feel like I'm 21

A fresh start

I am currently at ease with myself and the way my life is at present.

That is a huge statement for me to share and also a very long time coming.

The past few years have been really tough.  Life seemed to have totally gone off track.  My life felt off kilter and to a point not my own.  I suffered deeply with depression, had a crappy job, my relationship with my husband was at times very strained and I had become very insular and within myself.  Life felt hard and I suffered greatly.

I got a new job, and for a few months I hated it.  It didn't float my boat so to speak.  I thought I could do better.  I felt like I had taken a huge step backwards career wise, I was unhappy and felt broken.  But I suddenly had an AHA moment.  I realised that I could and should change my attitude towards it.  I didn't want to look for a new job as it had taken a while to find this one and I hated filling in application forms and going to interviews.  I didn't want to find a job where I would…
