Another year, another mystery to what lies ahead of us all, another story to tell...........

This has been my motto for the last few years, and this year I have added a word, a very little word consisting of just two letters


DO it now, not tomorrow.  
Then the word that follows is DONE because you have done it, 
and the first two letters of DONE is DO.

I did FAIL on something last year (here).
Apart from Life getting in the way, I think I failed because I told the world, perhaps I shouldn't have done that!  But as they watch this space........

One thing I haven't failed on was the extra box I added all the council recycling boxes, the large cardboard we use as a charity box.  I have taken lots of things to the charity shop since adding the box.  Read about it here 


  1. Excellent piece of advice. Sounds more like you delayed [it's always happening to me too] and did other things instead rather than failed to me!

  2. I like your idea of a cardboard box for charity items and I'm going to adopt that. I tend to put them in a pile then change my mind and put them back in a cupboard! If they are in a box I won't be able to see them and they just might get to the charity shop! xx

  3. Great motto ... and you didn't fail with your embroidery - it's just ongoing lol
    Have a great year Julie. DO is a splendid word ...

  4. It's a lovely embroidery piece.

  5. Don't think of it as a failure, think rather it as just waiting for the right time while other things were being done :) happy new yearxx


Please leave a comment. I love reading them and I read every single one!
