So we’ve said goodbye to 2017, I have to say, for us, it was pretty standard – the only things that really happened were that Bubbles graduated nursery and went to school. This is a massive step change in terms of life, but we took it in our stride mostly. He took a while to settle in, but now he loves it and seems to be getting on rather well!
Last year, I set out some goals, this is how I did:
Be true to myself – I have tried, with everything I do to do this – But sometimes being a Mum means that you put others first – I am definitely better at it, but this year – I will build on this foundation.
Get out more with hubster – This hasn’t really happened – We meant to, but never got round to it – This year we have a Martin Wishart voucher to use, so we will be heading out at some point soon! This is really important to remember that we are also a couple as well as being parents.
Meditate – I have definitely been more mindful, taking time out when I needed it – I get up at 5.30am to do some meditation and a bit of stretching, so I’ll continue this on!
Focus on Family – This is going to be my main focus this year – with a family wedding being a major focus in the middle of the year.
Catch up on my Sleep – Well, we bought a bigger bed, so I don’t even notice Bubbles getting into the bed anymore – This is great as Hubster doesn’t wake me either when he crawls in at 4am after his gigs – I am enjoying this immensely – But again, more to build on and get better in 2018.
So what are my goals for 2018:
- Build on last year’s goals
- Be more organised – I’m going to spend time planning my week and getting ready for the week ahead
- Work more on my blog
- Catch up with friends more often
- Be committed to my 10k steps a day
