I have a few traditions I start the New Year with. One of them is to start the New Year writing. Regardless of what we’re doing, when I get home, after I get the boys in bed, I sit down and write a little. It doesn’t have to be much – a few paragraphs is fine. But I have to ‘write the New Year in’. I need to start the New Year as I intend to continue doing throughout the year – making sure my writing is part of my life.
The other tradition is my breakfast. I ate left over wine trifle for breakfast this morning – all that custard and jelly and jam sponge and heaps of peaches and strawberries. Yum Yum! I wish I had a picture to show you how delicious it looked in the bowl last night when I made it – but now it just looks like a mess – the yummiest mess.
It’s a bit of a thing I always do when I make wine trifle – I have some for breakfast the next morning. My husband thought it was disgusting for a while, but he now has a bowl with me and thinks it’s the best.
I often make wine trifle for whatever party we’re going to on NYE, so it’s become a bit of a New Year’s Day tradition to start the day off with wine trifle. What are your New Year’s Day traditions? Do you start off eating something you know you shouldn’t? Do you have resolutions you’re trying to follow? I’d love to hear about them.
I’d also like to wish everyone a happy, healthy and safe 2014 filled with family, friends, fun, laughter, aspirations and successes.
