Hello lovely readers and hello 2013!
Here we are at the beginning of a new year, and I can smell the fresh start.
And with the fresh start of the new calendar year comes a whole new look and feel to "I heart post." What do you think? I hope you like it! I have spent quite a while working on it to get to this stage, so I am very happy to launch the look with my first post of 2013.
I did a little course in CSS conducted by the clever Katrina at Pugly Pixel to work out how to refresh my look. Roll-over my widgets! Roll-over my widgets! Look how they change colour! I am pretty excited by that! So thank-you Katrina for teaching me such fancy tricks.
With the goal of revamping "I heat post" achieved (for the time being - it is undoubtedly a work-in-progress), and with the start of the new year, it is also time to think about new goals. So I have set a goal for myself. A serious goal.
And the goal is this (and people who know me well may snigger, as I never ever ever ever thought this phrase would come out of my mouth/keyboard):
♥ I want to do a 10km fun run this year!!*
Fun run - an oxymoron, I know!! But I have already signed up to do two 4km races and an 8km race in February/March - so I better get serious about achieving this goal, or it might be embarrassing. And now that I have put this goal out there on the world wide web, there is no escaping.
I also have a standard goal which I have re-hashed at the start of the past few years, and that is:
♥ read more books.
I read embarrassingly little last year, so this one shouldn't be hard to achieve.
And rounding out my list of goals, I would also like to:
♥ fix up my garden,
♥ make a meal from an actual recipe.
Okay, so I just made those last two up. Fixing up the garden has been on my to-do list for two months now, so maybe making it an official new years goal will actually see it happen. And just because I like to round things out, to get to goal number five, I used the 'New Year's Resolution Generator' and the result was:
I quite like that! This year I will aim to be more curious! I have no idea how I will measure that.
So thanks for spending time with "I heart post" once again. Please let me know what you think of the blog re-design** or if you have any tips on how I could be more curious. And please share your own goals for 2013 with me too - it will make me feel like less of a crazy-woman for wanting to do a 10km run!
Until next time, peeps,
Helen.*And PS, I learnt how to do in-text hearts ♥ ♥ ♥ during my little CSS course, so watch out, they are going to be everywhere on this site, because I am a more than a little excited about them. I ♥ hearts.
**And PPS, I also made a new "About" page - check it out!
