|Fresh ink, a clean page, sustainable living|
- Go on a writing retreat
- Attend Dance Bootcamp again
- Commit to Aerial Hoop as my preferred circus medium
- Renew my passport and actually use it
- Know when to push myself
- Know when to stop.
Those are not resolutions, they are intentions.
|Tulle Shawl by Curious Handmade, Knitvent 2017|
I thought about having a word for the year - you know the concept?
A logo to slap on my forehead and stare at in the mirror every morning, to repeat like a mantra until I become a better person.
The words that occurred to me were "strength" and "balance".
So I am teaching myself to perform a handstand.
No, really I am!

My current works in progress are mostly socks (five pairs!), but also mittens (two pairs) and the beginnings of a Brighton Plaid crochet blanket, which I am very excited about.
|Christmas Eve cast on: Twas the Night Before Christmas pattern|
I could not summon the energy for my aerial class, failed to eat properly, and was in bed by 7.30pm.
Day Two was better.
I took a sock to knit at lunchtime, bought the ingredients for dinner (Black Bean and Peanut Stew) and talked myself back off the precipice of anxiety, because... WTF Roo?!
Know when to push myself and know when to stop.
Read more, write more, eat more, treat myself more kindly.
Take more time to just... be at peace with myself.
That's the hardest thing of all.
Trying to do... less?
Happy New Year, dear readers!
