BeeBee's 365 Challenge

for the little things that make me happy

New Year’s Eve: One More Sleep to Go

On a normal year this would be a 365 challenge, this year it is in fact a 366 challenge.

Will this make the challenge trickier? Not exponentially. Will I do 366 different activities? Probably not. A book may take a while to read.

Everyday may not mean a new blog post. A post could be a quick hi how are you? Or even a recipe I’ve tried, possibly a book review or similar.

I’m not planning my me time. I’m hoping to be a bit more organic than that. (Although I do have an awful lot of books in need of reading!)

So, to those of you reading this I wish you a Happy and Healthy 2012.



So Here Comes The New Year: Best Duck for Cover

It’s coming up to that time of year again. A time when everything is full of promise and hope.

Where everyone is making plans however big or small for change of some sort. To be something better, to be someone new, to go somewhere different, to find a better job.

As a child my ‘resolutions’ were always the same:

1. To lose weight.
2. Stop sucking thumb.
3. To be quieter.

The order changed from time to time, but these were the same every year till I was 25.

Every year ended I was heavier than the year before and normally louder too.

This year I want something different (apart from the losing weight thing!) I resolve to spend at least 5 minutes a day doing something just for me.

I’m a married mother of two, carer of one, I work for a news agency and volunteer for a number of organisations. Time for me is rare. This year I will find that balance that we all need. 5 minutes where I can switch off, maybe read a book, look at something daft on the internet. Write a post about anything.

My interests are vast and vary on my mood. My constants are The Things 1 & 2 (my boys), The Husband, The Outlaws, Slimming World and food in general. I read, yet don’t have a favoured genre. I write but never fiction always factual. I daydream about nothing in particular. I tweet – quite a lot it would appear of late and I pin – a lot and mostly gorgeous photos of food. For all of these you will find me as BeeBee Cavendish.

I look forward to meeting you.
