It's quite tempting in these last few days off work to excitedly join in with lots of blogging projects, only to inevitably fail to keep up with them when real life kicks in again. So without any promise of long-term commitment, I thought I would join in with Jocelyn's word of the week project this week, having often seen it on twitter last year.
I make no claim to artistic skills, and no vow to hand-draw my words in future weeks, but I was doodling over lunch and decided to illustrate this week's word in a new notebook. I have grand visions of getting to the end of the year with a notebook of weekly words but one day at a time for now! Also not sure we have the luggage capacity for me to take coloured pencils off to Australia!
The last week began in a post-Christmas haze of illness, feeling rubbish and sleeping away the days on the sofa, dosing up on medicine and the last of the chocolate coins. I had an extended pity party, especially as I trudged to work on Monday feeling under the weather and cheated of my long weekend off work. Now though, I'm feeling much better (although many of my family are still suffering), and am starting the New Year appreciating being well, and with renewed focus on optimising my health.
Yesterday there was a long dog walk (with brief attempts at running), today there has been a vegetable packed food shop (and another walk planned shortly). It is good to feel well-rested, well-recovered, and positive about the year ahead. Here's to a happy and healthy new year.
