Happy New Year!

As my first post of the year, I thought I'd revisit my resolutions post from last year and see how well I've done. My blog had only been going for about 6 weeks at that time, so one thing I'm proud of is that I've actually stuck to this blogging lark, and 'met' lots of other lovely bloggers along the way.

One of my resolutions last year was to walk more...we've enjoyed some lovely days out walking with friends and family; It's amazing how quickly you can cover a couple of miles, when you're chatting away! We had a fantastic time at Disney World and must have walked for miles each day in the 30C+ heat! Although this year's holiday will be a more relaxing one (in Greece), I hope to continue our weekend walks, and will certainly be getting our money's worth from our National Trust membership.

I think I've managed to cut down slightly on the amount of cheese I cook with, and have also veered away from using as many meat substitutes as I did, and swapped them for extra vegetables and pulses. I'll be using my new River Cottage Veg Every Day! cookbook to continue on this quest this year.

The girls have definitely improved in the amount of jobs they do around the house, and were a fantastic help just before Christmas when I was ill with a stinking cold. Let's hope they keep this up during 2012.

Mr O hasn't done too well on his DIY resolution, but he has promised that he'll be getting someone in to do the jobs that he doesn't have the time or inclination to complete!

My main resolution this year, is to do more gardening and improve on my fruit/vegetable/herb plot; I wonder how well I'll stick to that one? So what are your resolutions this year?
