Life Decisions 2016

In 2013 i made a post about life decisions i only made 3 points because i didn't want to overwhelm myself (i always do that)

Let me explain how it all went....

1: Cut down on buying things.
How It Went: I did refashion more of my own clothes which was great but i never stopped buying books and shoes.... Need more practice in this.

2: Organizing Debt...
How It Went: This was very successful i phoned every debt person i owed money too explained the situation some where understanding and set up payment plans and some where not so until i got a solicitor involved then they played nice i got a plan for every debt and i pleased to report over the last two years i have cleared 2 of my debts the most recent one to date was paid 29/01/2016. 
To say i am proud is a understatement, i am very proud of myself.

3: Learning to drive...
How It Went: It never happened! I always said i was going to learn to drive and sadly i never did half of the reason was lack of money but the other half was lazy - ness, i am sorry to admit that, must do better.

2016 Life Decisions.

1: Cut back on spending - Refashion, Reuse, Recycle.

2: Learn to drive - This is a must it needs to be done i will put more will power into this. I have the plans i just need to put them into actions.

Poem - Am Not Old

 Am Not Old

I am not old…she said
I am rare.
I am the standing ovation
At the end of the play.
I am the retrospective
Of my life as art
I am the hours
Connected like dots
Into good sense
I am the fullness
Of existing.
You think I am waiting to die…
But I am waiting to be found
I am a treasure.
I am a map.
And these wrinkles are
Imprints of my journey
Ask me anything.

One Down - Life Goals

As all you dedicated blogger readers know on my life list i have listed
 "To become debt free" and today marks the second debt i have finally paid off since going at life on my own in April 2014.

I know this blog don't mean much to anyone but its a great help to me so i can document my life progress on my own so i know where to change things if things ain't going right and to see what make me happy.
The reason i am mentioning this is because i have lost 2 followers. :(

The debt was for outstanding council tax on a flat i shared with my Ex husband.

The bill was 419.03
It has taken 7 months to pay it off at 50 a month.
The last payment was paid today very proudly 29/01/2016

New Years Eve Party At Home

I don't say this very often but Happy New Year!
I do hope you had a good one my actual new year was at a friends house eating cookie and grapes drinking run and coke drooling over Brian Adams (why not)
My friends Jean and Sam where working just like I was over new year so we decided to have a party on the 8th when we actually had a free time all at the same time
(which is pretty rare)
Don't expect sparkly ball gowns and suits because that's just not us.... We smoke, drink, swear and talk dirty and none of us are going to change.



Do you know any book tours/ festivals/ Fairs in the UK?

This year my goal is to be more involved with books from getting more writing done to reading more books and visiting book festivals/ tour/ fairs author meeting's and signing's.

But the problem is i have no idea how to find them, i am truly hopeless.
So i am asking all you book people and friends around the UK do you know of any book festivals/ tours/ fairs/ author signing/ meetings please comment with names , links or just anything for book stuff this year.

Thank you in advance.
