  1. Best of luck. These are good, I should do more of many of these too. Except baths. I’m not a bath person. Maybe because it requires cleaning the tub first.

    1. Oh crap, I should have added, “Clean bathroom more often” to facilitate my baths. πŸ˜‰

  2. To put it bluntly, I’m going to stop being a hypocrite & learn how to follow my own advice & gut. πŸ™‚

  3. On my list: Read Alex’s blog more often! This is briliant, love it all! (except for the bake more – that one stinks πŸ˜‰

  4. I am going to eat more chocolate. Because it makes me happy.
    Yep, that’s a selfish one, but a happy mother means a happy family, doesn’t it? :p

      1. I have to reply to a question in your email, will harass you for a coffee date, too.
