My first blog post from the iPhone! Can't believe it took me so long, although typing with one finger is not ideal... might be a short one.

As per my latest tweet, here come some resolutions for the year beginning Monday 1st February 2010. Yes, you heard me, February. That's just how I roll.

1 ~ I will go to Bikram yoga once a week.

2 ~ I will start AND finish a new creative project each month.

3 ~ I will keep blogging.

4 ~ I will spend time away from the computer, and resisting the urge to use the Internet on my phone (tonight doesn't count!).

5 ~ I will take more photos.

6 ~ I will get more sleep.

7 ~ I will try going vegan for a month.

8 ~ I will become a member of my local library.

9 ~ I will start a herb garden.

10 ~ I will choose to be happy most of the time, even when it's tricky.

I think these are very achievable. Wish me luck!

>> I'm putting the iPhone down now.

I'm slowly getting back into some kind of routine, but life is busy at the moment! To recap 2009, these are my favourite posts of each month from my blog (no explanations, you can just peruse them if you feel like it):

January ~ Giving my powerboard a plug
February ~ Laneway Festival
March ~ I heart NY
April ~ The Greenstore
May ~ The best vegan pumpkin muffins
June ~ Learning to sew on a button
July ~ All you need is love
August ~ Le béret bleu
September ~ Green salad
October ~ Country weekend
November ~ I took a blogging hiatus!
December ~ Niagara print

...and since it's the start of a new year, I can't help throwing in a plug for Maxihuge Calendars! You can buy them here ;)

>> The photo is me in my pretty new dress, thanks to some very generous Christmas vouchers. Lucky me!
