Happy New Year Spikey’s!!


Tuesday 31 December, 2013 by Uncle Spike

Recently I reviewed 2013 in a post called
And That Was My 2013 Was It?

Well, now it’s time for me to consider
“Two Thousand and Fourteen”… 

What will happen in the world?

What will happen at home?

Questions, questions, questions…




For me, I don’t have some great bucket list I want to delve head-first into. I don’t even have a few notable ‘resolutions’ I want to tackle. No, for me I just want to continue ‘as is’ this next year. Is that boring; is that aiming too low? I don’t think so.




I want to be as happy as I have been in 2013.
My marriage is solid; we are all healthy; Cousin Spike Jnr is doing fine at school; I generally feel like smiling pretty well every day and life still has a purpose.




I plan to maintain basic profitability on the farm.
We don’t make money, not a ‘living’ anyway; far from it, but if we can be ‘in the black’ again, AND have all our own veg and fruit throughout the year, then that counts as an achievement in my book.




I want to keep the momentum going on my blog.
I need to remain focussed on why I am doing this and to ensure I get out of this venture what I want to achieve, and hopefully retain, if not increase the following accrued during 2013. To do this I need to ‘listen’ to my readers – ears opening as I type…




I want to be calm, not snappy or intolerant.
I’m a good guy 95% of the time, but like most of us, I have my moments I’m not so proud of. Perhaps in 2014 I can go for 96 or higher. I hope so.




Finally, I want to still be here this time next year to bore you with my list for 2015. Hopefully that is not too much to ask. Maybe so, but we’ll see I guess is the answer to that thought….

Have a great year….!

  5. I’m a little jealous of that farm Spike. I’m with you 100%. Let’s just keep it rolling in 2014, maybe let the chips stack up a little more; but not much more than we need right!. Health, Wealth and Happiness for all in 2014!
