This is a slightly different take to the resolutions made yesterday and before New Year's Eve. It is about what I want to achieve or to take place as 2011 unfolds...
I want her to settle in fully to our new lives in Kendal. She still misses her best friend P from Hastings and isn't completely happy at her new school. I would like her to continue changing into the lovely, kind and caring young lady that she is showing more and more.
He will be starting school in September which is quite scary. I hope he carries on maturing nicely so that when he starts he is a popular and contented child. He is showing talent as a footballer and I hope he continues to enjoy this and improve.
When my son starts school I will be able to concentrate on getting myself a proper income and start getting off the benefits I had to sign up for last year. For the next 9 months I need to see which of my current talents I can turn into an income. The Usborne Books business hasn't really had a chance to establish itself up here due to a lack of time. In 2011 I need to see what I can do to expand this.
I also need to see which other things I can use to earn some extra money. My previous job was in IT and I have 15 years of experience in this field. There maybe opportunities for self-employment in this field. I love helping people learn how to use computers so may have to find ways of doing that commercially. One of my major hobbies is Family History so again I may be able to use some of my 20 years experience of research to get paid to help others delve into their family history.
To achieve any of that I need to really get organised in 2011 - people that know me well know that achieving that goal maybe the hardest!
