|Yes I'm recycling last years photo!|
It's that time of year again. I'm now no longer a 20-something, which is plain weird. As I've said before, I don't mind getting older and I do plan to grow old gracefully (well as graceful as I can be anyway!)....but I certainly don't feel older. I'm always waiting for that moment when I think 'Ah I'm an adult!' but it never comes and I guess I should be thankful for that in a way. Or horrified - depends which way you look at it.
Last year I posted about setting goals on my birthday for the following year...normally I set them, forget them and move on. This year I had written proof (via blog) of my goals a year ago. Shall we see how I did?
I have actually lost 2 stone (although I put on a lot of weight first!) I still have some more to lose though.
3. Tackle my disorganisation/
Things are getting better regarding the routine. I'm still very disorganised though!
Well I've yet to finish a blanket (although close with the stash buster!) but I have finished.....
Nope. Didn't do it - still hooked on crochet.
6. Give my mum her completed blanket!
Again the mumzy's birthday blanket is not finished.
I made some mittens last year. Yup I'm counting it.
8. Get better at photography
A working camera would help! I also feel that this is kind of a subjective goal. I do like to quantify things. I should have worded it better.
9. Make something to give to charity/a good cause.
Noooo I can't believe I haven't done this yet!
Just in time - last Monday
11. Finish my daughters patchwork quilt.
The fabric I need to finish it is winging it's way tome as we speak (now that I've remembered it!) - I can't believe another year has past without me finishing this for her! *smacked hand*
I also didn't stick to the 365 photo challenge (which I still want to do!) soooo I make that 6/11. Gah! Do I class that as a fail?! Let's move on.......
So this years resolutions are going to have a sparkly new page all of their own, so they don't get lost waaaay down my posts list and I'll remember them before my birthday next year! I intended to update them as I went but due to intermittent blogging I must admit I forgot I had them down on here. Anyway I'll roll over some of the ones I didn't complete last year and add some new ones. Some of them I really need to do but most of them are little things to make me happy. So here we go.....
1. Find a new job (A necessity!)
2. Complete a walk in Worth Matravers (without feeling like I should be air-lifted home.)
3. Tackle my disorganisation (again.)
4. Read at least 10 of my to-reads (List on the way)
5. Embroider one thing.
6.Make something to give to a good cause.
7. Finish Patchwork quilt.
8. Finish the Stash Buster
9. Walk more.
10. Knit ....something.
I do have a couple more private goals down on the list but I think ten fairly light hearted goals are enough for blogdom (especially as I forgot about them last year!)
Right I am off to eat cake and be merry! Have a great weekend! xxx
ETA I just had the fright of my life when I posted this and the date came up as 10th November! I swear it is the 11th....I've checked! Naughty Blogger! x
