WELCOME TO 2013!!!
I brought in the new year with a whole stack of crazy-arse total hornbag friends.My first ever sober New Years party (if you don't count the year I got food poisoning from some dodgy oysters & was in bed by 10pm) was an interesting experience. I drank WAY too much Pineapple Coconut juice but it was funny to watch everyone around me getting tanked.

LEARN TO SEW
Oh sure I can sew the most basic A-line skirt but how cool would it be to be able to say to myself "I've got a shin-dig in 2 months so I think I'll just whip up a new frock!" TBF bought me 10 sewing lessons for my birthday. I'm keen to learn how to at least do the basics. At the moment it takes me 10 attempts to put in a friggin zipper while screaming ARrrrrrrrraahhhhhh I'll never get it NEVER!
I also want to be able to boast to people when they say "Ooo Mz Vicki where on earth did you get that fabulous frock?" I can respond with a smug look on my face "Oh this? I just whipped it up on the Brother 2000 this week."
START LINDY-HOP SWING DANCING AGAIN
I used to swing dance (back in the old days) like a boss. I wasn't super good or anything. I couldn't do fancy aerials but I would class myself as "not total shit". I LOVE Lindy Hop. I can dance to rockabilly music but there is something about cuttin' a rug to big band music that just makes me feel all warm & gooey inside. If you see me out on the dance floor swinging out I always have a big slightly deranged huge grin on my face. When I started thinking about my goals for this year I started with thinking about "What makes me feel happy and what makes me smile?" Lindy Hop dancing topped the charts.
WATCH MORE MOVIES AND READ MORE BOOKS
I've actually started ANOTHER blog where I will be ploughing my way through about 81 films on my MUST SEE list this year and reviewing them. Movies and books are two of my great loves. I love being lost in another world for about 2 hours. www.themovieminx.blogspot.com.au
EAT CLEAN AND FOR THE LOVE OF GAWD WOMAN DO SOME EXERCISE
This year I am really going to focus on CLEAN eating. What the frick does that mean? Basically trying not to eat anything processed like tinned or packaged food. This past year, thanks to Mishy baby I've really grown to love cooking and trying new recipes. Particulary the ones where you make it all from scratch eg salsas and dressings. I bought the Jamie Oliver 15 minute meal book and it is literally totally pukka like. I love how it is really focused on clean eating and ease. I've already tried 2 recipes and they were great. Didn't take me 15 minutes and I used every pot in the kitchen but worth it.
EXERCISE EXERCISE EXERCISE... why do you taunt me so? This year I really really do need to JFDI. I am going to try Yoga and I will not rest until I find a form of exercise that I enjoy. Holy shit I MAY even step out of my comfort zone. I need to STOP being a lazy schlub and get off my arse.
I don't know WHY I avoid it. When I finish doing it I feel bloody awesome. If someone could bottle some of their motivation and send me some I would really appreciate it.
This year I am going to spend alot more QUALITY time with my family & TBF's family. Sure my family are all a pack of total wack-jobs but I love them and really want to force my presence upon them alot more this year.
WORK AND MONEY
This year I would like to try and work out what the hell I am doing with my life! I would love to change careers (this is quite a terrifying thought) but I really need help as I have NO idea what the bloody hell I want to do. I need to go and see some sort of guidence counsellor who can look at my qualities and say THIS is what you should be doing.
This year our home loan contract is FINALLY up (thank fricking gawd). Seriously our contract has been totally killing us financially. What this means is that we will finally be able to pay off our yucky credit card and cut that sucker up and be able to start SAVING. Can I get a HELLS-YEAH!
So there you have it... Mz Vicki's 2013 goals and aspirations.
This was my other list:
- Spend more time on Facebook
- Take more selfie photos
- Post more ambigious statements on Facebook
- Post more food photos and photos of my cat on Instagram
- Complain more about how hard it is for me to lose weight
- Frown at strangers more often
- Complain more about today's fashion & music
PS THANKS FOR STICKING WITH ME THROUGH 2012 AND HOPEFULLY YOU'LL STICK AROUND TO READ MY RAMBLINGS IN 2013
