Courage – My Word Of The Year

The concept of choosing a word or mantra of the year is fairly new to me. However in the world of bullet journalling and goal setting. Word of the year seems to be very popular. I found this article Word Of The Year Ideas For 2019 by The Goal Chaser very useful when it came to choosing my word and for understanding the concept behind focusing on one specific word to help a person achieve their goals. After some deliberation I decided my word of 2019 is courage. Some Words Stood Out. As I was reading through the article on The Goal Chaser, I had a few ideas of words that I might want to use, however I sat and […]

2019 A New Year, New Adventures and Challenges Lie Ahead

We are only a few days into the new year! My brain still thinks its 2018 not 19. When my brain eventually catches up with the rest of the world. it will realise that we have a whole new year of adventures and challenges are ahead of us. When I was looking towards the new year and the new goals I wanted to set for myself. I never expected to be spending it in the midst of a really bad pain flare. I knew my new year would be starting with my dancing the night away, taking shots with pals but I’d hoped that I would be able to stay up for the bells and have a nice New Year’s […]

Goals For Year End – Blogtober 2018 – Day 14

Not only is christmas creeping ever so closer, but so is the near year.  With only a few short months left to tackle the goals I set myself at the start of the year.  I want to share goals that I have set myself to achieve by year end. Learn To Use My Sewing Machine I inherited a sewing machine when my mother in law sadly passed away several years ago.  I’ve only ever taken it out of the bag once maybe twice. I have lots of ideas of things that I would make.  I am going to watch youtube videos on how to thread the machine etc. I’ll probably need help with a magnifying glass or david to […]

2018 Goals & Plans, Personal & Blog

Happy new year to one and all! It feels like only yesterday we were embarking on the adventure that was 2017. What a year that. I for one am glad that Year is over and can’t wait for a brand new beginning full of great possibilities and countless opportunities to make memories. For many a new year means resolutions are being thrown around with the greatest of intentions that they will fulfil them and become a better person. I personally don’t believe in resolutions, they are usually broken within a few weeks because they are often unrealistic. So for me, I’m setting myself some goals, goals that I believe that I should be able to achieve. Goals for myself and […]

Hello December – Holidays & Blogmas Are Coming

Is it really December already? It seems that the older I’m getting the quicker the months seem to pass.  It honestly feels like 2017 only started not that long ago.  But here we are, Christmas is around the corner.  The present buying is in full swing, with the stress of getting the perfect gift for loved ones is snapping at my heels.  The excitement of all the Christmas food, music, decor and spending time with family is growing daily.  This month I am going to relax a little with the goals I’m setting myself and simply enjoy the time of year, watch begin to understand that something is happening and that he will be getting presents, hear him say Santa […]

Hello November – Its Our Birthday Month

Hello November, Its that time of month again, no not THAT time!  its a brand new month which means brand new goals and plans.  A clean slate that lets anything seem possible. Plus it’s mine and Alex’s birthday month and I’m excited for what this month will bring. How I Did Last Month Octobers goals were a little more adventurous for me, normally I only set one or two goals but I’m trying to better myself buy pushing myself to do more which might be out of my comfort zone. In terms of last months goals, I didn’t complete them all but I did manage to at least make a start to clearing out mine and Alex’s clothes and sorting […]

Hello October

Last Months Goals In my Hello September Post I wrote about the goals I had set myself for the month. I hope to drink more water, go to the gym more as well as organising housework and blogging so that I am writing in advance rather waiting to the last minute. I wasn’t as successful in my goals as I hoped. I did tidy and organise my desk for writing and began to plan posts but actually spending time to write said posts was wasted on playing games on my tablet or watching rubbish tv……….I am a bad blogger. With it being a new month though I’m not going to beat myself up too much about my lack of achieving […]

Hello September – What Mischief Can We Get Up To?

Well Hello there September it’s nice to see you again. Finally it’s the time for cosy woollen knits, fleecy blankets in front on the fake fire, the burning of glorious scented candles and drinking copious amounts of pumpkin spiced lattes, the dark nights drawing in and a whole new set of monthly goals and chances of new kinds of mischief to get up to. From September onwards I’m planning on doing a monthly post outlining what my monthly goals will be and tell you my lovely readers what I’ve got planned for the month. My aim in this new kind of post is to encourage myself to actually attempt my monthly goals instead of just pondering them and never doing […]
