2018 Slightly Sweaty Goals – How did I do?

2018 goals

So you may or may not remember my Slightly Sweary Goals of 2018. Here’s an update on how I did:

Fuck the Target Weight – Get to Happy Weight

Nope. Not even a little bit. I actually put on weight. I got off a bit of it before the end of the year but it’s safe to say that this one was a complete fail…

Earn some fecking money

Yes. I definitely did this. I ended up deciding in April that I had had it with self employment and by the end of May I had a job. A nice job with nice people and one where I earn a decent wage. It’s lovely and I feel better now.

Stop farting around and book that trip to Japan

Done and done – we’re going in April! The earning some fecking money definitely helped with this one! I’m ridiculously excited for this one.

Get rid of crap…like seriously you have way too much shit

I got rid of a load of stuff. Did car boots, gave to charity and threw a bunch of stuff out. Feeling a hell of a lot lighter. And we can actually put suitcases in the airing cupboard now. But there is still a way to go! It’s a process.

Stop feeling so bloody inadequate – you are enough

This is also a work in process. I took a big nosedive this year but by the end I felt like I was coming out the other side. We’ll get there.

Happy Valentines Day!

Whether you celebrate or not, Happy Valentine’s Day! I hope you have a lovely day whether it’s a nice meal with your partner, hanging out with your friends or having some well deserved me time. Topher and I aren’t really into the holiday, usually opting to do something silly like laser quest but the last couple of years we have stayed in. Today’s plan is steak for dinner, followed by chocolates while having a The Office (US) marathon.

I’ve been a bit quiet on the old blog front recently. It’s a mixture of tiredness and grown up life getting in the way. On the bright side, it looks like we’re close to closing on our house! Like a couple of weeks from having the keys in our hands close. So excited. And then fear. We need to start packing – pack all of the things! And get that coffee stain out of the carpet stat! Any tips for dried in coffee stains? Oh and I can’t forget my freelance work I’ve been doing. Too many things!

So forgive me for the quietness, I’m just trying to get through my to do list!
