Bye Bye 2015! Well Hello 2016!!

New Year fast approaching!

 

Well, as I scroll down my reader there are so many posts, about the new year. There are plenty of the WordPress reports, which I too posted, and then the reviews of the past year, and then those with goals for 2016.

Looking back, 2015 was a pretty amazing year in many ways for me, both with my blog, and in reality!

I went from just starting out, to over 1200 WP followers! I got the courage up to post some of a book I started many years ago, and got so much encouragement from those who read it, that I now need to find time to finish it! I discovered a talent for writing things that people actually want to read! That still surprises me to this day! To think, the goings on in my daily life could interest others! And there is the wonderful community I have become a part of.Β  The people who I have interacted with on WP have been amazing, and I have found some people who I truly count as friends, and some, closer than that, my Blogily!

In reality, I finally took the plunge, did my Return to Teach course and got me a real Teaching job! I see my children growing up, becoming fascinating, opinionated characters (More blogger fodder for me!), and generally, life has been good!

So, what do I expect from 2016?

Well, I don’t like to shoot too high, but hey we should all have dreams, shouldn’t we?

I hope I find the time to finish my Wedded Stress novel!

I hope that my first year of teaching ends with success, and that I manage to control that crazy bunch of kids, and teach them something that will help them in life!

I hope to attend the Annual Bloggers Bash this year to meet some of the inspirational writers I have followed and interacted with over this last year.

Then there are those things… those resolutions… the things you diligently say you will do, then forget after a few days!

Well, I’m not one for making resolutions, but there are a few changes I would like to make…

  • Get a little healthier, you know, no full boxes of Malteasers, just a few, eating a little better, maybe getting back on the exercise wagon. I’ll try, we’ll see what happens!
  • Give more time to my family. I am constantly rushing around, and feel like we have no quality time together. The kids are growing fast, and Lil Man starts Secondary school in September. Hubby and I need alone time too!
  • I want to be better on my blog at not just reading and liking others posts, but I want to be more active in commenting on others blogs too.
  • I shall continue to reblog any awards I am nominated for, as they are time consuming, and my life means I can’t give them the time they deserve, but, by reblogging, I hope to give that person a few new views, and show my gratitude that way. Of course if it is something new,Β  I shall try my hardest to take part!

And with all that in mind, all that remains, is for me to wish you, my gorgeous Peeps, a very prosperous, and happy new year! May 2016 bring all the things you wish for, and give you the successes you all so deserve! Love and luck to you all, and most of all, many many smiles!

    That was a lovely post Ritu. I think you have had a very successful 2015 and will continue to be even more successful in 2016, both as a teacher and with your blog. I am hoping to go to the Bloggers Bash in June as well so it will be wonderful to meet you there. I can’t wait!

    Happy New Year, Ritu. Please give me the boxes of left over Malteasers and I’ll finish them off. I’d hate to see them go to waste if you are only eating a few out of each box πŸ™‚
