Well that may be a fib – first of the year, good start. BUT I am channeling squirrels for 2017.
Why you ask?
For my recent work Christmas do the theme was ‘Christmas Party Animals’ and after a quick browse on Etsy for animally attire I landed on a bushy grey squirrel tail and ear set – see here. And that was it, I was sold. I was going to be a good ol’ mischevious Prosecco loving squirrel.
I rendered myself surrounded. No, chosen. With trepidation, I Googled ‘squirrel symbolism’ and there it was, right there on the internet for heavens sake; adventure and fun.
So 2016 was a year of gritted teeth and stress induced stiff necks.
Adventure then, is my key theme for this year. There’s a travel company I’ve had my eye on for a while who I would like to give some of my adventure fund to; Much Better Adventures. Their vision is genius; weekend adventures aimed at those who are time poor, so us 9-7ers. Track wildlife and snowshoe through the Swedish wilderness you say? SIGN ME UP.
Also I reeeeaaaaaally would like to stay at Hex Cottage – no electricity, just candlelight and fire cosiness.
The word ‘adventure’ knows no bounds. Some might be trips, others might be taking a wrong turn on a walk and just going with it.
I mentioned an Adventure fund above right? Each month the idea is to set aside whatever I can to go towards adventures. No more taxing than that really. So far theres -£283 in there because y’know, Christmas.
Roll on pay day.
