Goals for 2011:

Learn to SUCCESSFULLY make bread!  Anything I make that requires rising simply doesn't work!

Go to Yoga twice a week.  I went to my very first yoga class last month, loved it, but can I stick to it...?

Learn to make cheese.  I have been talking about taking a basic cheese-making class for ages - time to actually DO IT!

Lose a few extra kilos.  Two years is too long to be still blaming extra weight on the 'honeymoon period'!

Be a nicer person.  Lets face it, I'm a bit of a grumpy cow.

Appreciate my awesome life and the fantastic people in it.  Surely the events of the last few weeks (Christchurch and Japan) should have taught me a life lesson in being grateful for what I have.  Perhaps this is not really a goal?  But since these life changing events I have realised how much I take for granted.

To be noted:  Losing weight comes after baking bread and making cheese on this list... mmmm fresh bread and cheese...
