Happy New year to you! And that’s the end of 2010. I feel thankful for this year, which has in truth been very hard at times, it has felt like a test. And I passed. Life is fantastic, I’m in a completely different place to where I was at the start of 2010, and enjoying myself hugely. Thank you friends, family, everyone.

Getting on with it

I wrote my new years resolutions early last night. Today was the first day of the rest of my life, and it feels good. up at 07.30, spent an hour writing in my diary and visualising the day ahead. Then i went to THE GYM and loved it, and this afternoon i walked for an hour around Gloucester/Cheltenham road taking in everything and really enjoying myself.

I met a nice lady called Lucy today, and infact i met another Lucy, and mistook her for the Lucy i was meeting. We met to swap shopping lists and things to do lists and had a lovely chat. She mentioned morning pages which is something i have forgotten about. Think i’ll start doing that.

AND my commitment to being an artist is obviously working because today, unlike ever before, i recieved TWO invitations to be exhibited. How great is that! I have lots of work to do and it’s exciting.
