Time for an update on my frivolity project 🙂
#4. Pray more. Does anyone have any tips to help me with this?
#5. Do a jigsaw. I’ve done a 30-piece Frozen jigsaw about 100 times, but I don’t think that counts.
#6. Finish my jumper (that I started about four years ago!). Winter is nearly over, shall I just put this off until September?
#8. Learn and perform a new piece. I can scratch out Baa Baa Black Sheep on the violin, but I think I had better stick to the piano for this one.
#10. Exercise more. Well! I’ve signed up for a running course, starting in March! Check me out!
#15. Enter a baking competition (or run one?!). Need to hunt for a non-scary village fair or something where I can put in a Victoria sponge.
#16. Host a dinner party. Plenty of recipes clipped, but no party had.
#17. Do something different or dramatic with my hair. Hmmm. Funds a little low. So we’ll see.
#19. Do a 10K run. See #10 above.
#21. Sew a skirt or dress. Let’s start with sewing the buttons on the massive pile of mending sitting in my cupboard…
#22. Invest in and use good face creams (I’m in my 30s now!). Still no wrinkles, woohoo!
#23. Go out for Japanese food. Next time we have a babysitter…
#24. Host Christmas. TBA.
#25. Start studying something. My lengthy to-do list is getting shorter, so I shall soon run out of excuses for not doing this, which will actually be great.
#27. Do a hat making class/course. Oh my, I looked into this, and… the cost! Not sure this will happen this year.
#28. Go on a hot holiday. Um.
#29. Spa day. I had a long hot bath, does that count?
#30. Go on a weekend trip with Nick (Paris? Bruges? Bognor?). I don’t know. I just miss my babies too much. But probably this would be a good idea.
#1. Picnic at a park or beach. Tick!
#2. Read a book. Tick tick tick!
#3. Blog more. Hello!
#9. Swim in the sea. Tick!
#11. Make someone a birthday cake. Tick!
#12. Go on a day trip to the seaside (Weston-super-Mare, anyone?). Tick!
#14. Buy new cushions for the lounge. Tick!
#18. Have a facial. Aaaah. Bliss.
#20. Take the children to the zoo. Many, many times.
#13. Sort photos into albums. I’m looking into photo books this week.
#26. Floss every day. How long does it take for a habit to form, because I’ve been doing this for FIVE MONTHS!
Goals completed: 10 (# 1, 2, 3, 7, 9, 11, 12, 14, 18, 20)
Goals in progress: 2 (#13, 26)
Not started: 18 (#4, 5, 6, 8, 10, 15, 16, 17, 19, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 27, 28, 29, 30)
Really, I had better make a priority of some of these. #4, 6, 8, and 10 are all totally doable and would be really beneficial.
I love goals lists. It’s not even about doing everything that’s on the list, it’s more about thinking over aspirations and motivations. Obviously, I have loads of aspirations that don’t appear on this list, but I think that having a someday/maybe list is helpful to me because it’s a place I can download some of my want goals (rather than need goals) so that they don’t clog up my brain. Because I am a Bear of Little Brain 🙂
