"Lost time is never found again"- Benjamin Franklin
Dear Diary: I am pleased with my New Year. The shift change I asked for at work was agreed. I now work two 12 hour days midweek and a Saturday - leaving two days each end of the week free! A bit like having two weekends! I am very lucky to be able to do this. I wanted to make time to batch cook and freeze, visit the gym 3 mornings a week and walk in the woods and I have been given the opportunity. A good start to 2014 and my resolution to VALUE FREE TIME.
Other good news is that our 2014 holiday is now paid. We changed the way we budgeted in 2013 so that our salaries go straight to our savings account and are drawn from weekly to cover our bills and food costs - we found it much easier to do without or 'go tighter' when the money was already in the saver account, we are doing this with all our budget again this year - it really works for us as we both get varied income monthly.
I think the thing I will make most use of in 2014 is my library - it's a great way to use some of my valuable free time!
What are your resolutions for 2014?
Do you have something big to save up for? Plans to travel? A craft you want to learn? Be better organised?
