Happy New Year!
It’s become a tradition of mine to start the new year off with some big plans for the year to come and this year will be no different!
Last year I achieved everything I wanted to but not quite to the level I’d hoped to. I managed to lose a reasonable amount of weight, just not quite as much as I’d hoped. I took my blog back to basics, but didn’t actually post anywhere near as much as I wanted to. I did, however, manage to plan most of our wedding, so that was good!
I also went back to work after having our second daughter Willow, we went on our first family holiday abroad, got two new kittens, I hosted four Abzmeet blogger meetups, and watched proudly as my little brother got married!
2018 is going to be just as awesome, because this year I will:
Yes, in August Allan and I are getting married! Although the main things are already organised, I feel I can start planning the detail with the festive season out of the way!
Our family trip to Lyon last year reminded me how much I love to travel so this year we have booked our honeymoon and have also planned a trip to Northern Ireland to visit friends. Hopefully we can explore more of Scotland as a family too.
Read At Least One Book A Month
I was given a Kindle Fire for Christmas which suggested I joined Goodreads so I have, and I’m setting myself a target of one book a month for 2018. On paper that sounds like nothing but in reality it has been so long since I took the time to read a book from cover to cover that I’d rather chose an achievable goal.
I want to start putting my sewing machine to good use and this year I’m determined to dust it off and make something, ideally something I can actually wear! I also want to learn how to alter some of the clothes I have, especially some of my vintage finds.
I hardly blogged at all in 2017, partly because I used Instagram a lot more, partly because I lost all motivation and felt that I wasn’t doing much worth blogging about. This year I WILL be more motivated and you can expect more posts on all of the above plus days out, our home, regular monthly posts and more about our family life!
So 2018 will be a pretty busy year for me! What are your goals for this year?
