Episode Summary

Today on Tea & Tattle, Sophie and I are sharing our wishes for the year ahead. We've each chosen a theme word for 2017, which we hope will help us to achieve our goals and keep us in a positive, forward-thinking mindset. We both agree that trying to stick to a long list of New Year resolutions never works very well for either of us, so this January we've chosen instead to focus on one word that sets the tone for the year ahead. Sophie especially is anticipating some big and exciting changes in 2017, and I share the number one thing that I hope will help me improve in all areas of my life. 

Also, we've introduced a little change to the podcast: instead of our regular 'do-over' section, we've decided instead to check in on each other's goals quarterly throughout the year and discuss whether we need to make any adjustments or improvements to our habits. Instead of the usual 'do-over' section, then, we're sharing snippets of some of the wonderful comments and feedback we receive from you, our listeners! It's our aim to create a real dialogue with Tea & Tattle Podcast, so we were happy to think of a way we could incorporate the insightful, fun and interesting things our listeners let us know too. 

Thank you as always to everyone for getting in touch and letting us know your thoughts on the latest episode!
