Having said that… this year, during our quiet New Year in, my husband and I decided to create Bucket Lists for the year 2015. Now, in all honesty, it’s pretty much the same as resolutions but with a different name. Maybe the name change will help me to keep to them? And the thought that I have 12 months to get around to them all rather than start them all straight away IS appealing. So… Here is my 2015 Bucket List:
~ Be back to my pre-baby weight by the end of the year (that’s 9 1/2st – pre-second-baby weight, but I don’t think any more than that would be healthy for me.)
~ Block out time for writing and stick to it (maybe use a planner, maybe have a target word count per week/month?)
~ Blog more. Get regular, scheduled posts going up every week and don’t let it become sidetracked by other things!
~ Get the house valued with a view to starting to look for our “forever home”.
~ Make time for a girls night with friends at least once a month. With another baby boy on the way, I feel girl time will become precious and I don’t want to let it slide because I’m trying to be a “rough and tumble” mum to boys. I’m not “rough and tumble”, I never will be, and I need to make sure I keep my girly side 🙂
So… Will I stick to them? I hope so. Will you help keep me accountable? I hope so! Especially on the blogging – I’ll be back tomorrow with my Friday Five.
Thanks to those of you that have been still be reading even while I’ve been enjoying the festive period and not posting. Stick with me now, I need all the help, comments, constructive criticism, shares and likes I can get!!
Happy New Year!
