  1. I try to obtain goals like yours too and never quite get there. I aim to start walking again but today is the first day of winter so not sure how that will go.
    Cooking is not a problem, half the time I just wish I had more people to cook for. I'd love to bake cookies but they would go stale if it's just me and Gus having them and we don't need to eat them anyway! The girls are coming home next weekend so I will have more mouths to cook for (yay!).

    Cheers - Joolz
