I must say, I am not starting it in the greatest style – I am working the night shift this week and I am in a load of pain (more than normal). I always suffer from back pain, but the other day I made it worse by falling down the stairs – now I have pain and stiffness in my hips and upper legs and elbows too, not to mention a wacking great purple bruise and a big old patch of carpet burn right across my left arse cheek! Who knew sitting down could be so painful!
Anyways, enough about my arse, Surely things can only go up from here, so it is time to set some goals for the year. I have decided to be a bit lighter on the goals this year. So here are my goals:
I hope to crochet 6 miles of yarn
This isnt an upgrade to last years goal – I have chosen to aim again for 6 Miles as it was a struggle this year. In the end I did meet this goal in 2017 but only within the last few weeks. 6 Miles is a good milestone to aim for again.
Do and Design more Amigrumi
Last year I really enjoyed making little amigrumi creatures. This year I want to make more and perhaps even design some!
MAKE SOME SOCKS!
I have the yarn and the patterns, I just really need to get started!
Reach 200 Followers, 600 Comments and 10000 Views.
A small upgrade on last years goals, to grow my blog even further.
Publish 15 Patterns
I really enjoy designing and hope to improve my writing skills and publish many new patterns. I have plenty of Ideas already!
And as for Goals for the rest of my life
Be Healthier, Make Healthier Choices
I decided that instead of a weight loss goal I should just strive to be healthier. Pay more attention to what I am eating and how much I am exercising.
Save More Towards A Deposit
We are well on our way to a good deposit to buy a home – At the beginning of the tax year we plan to open our government save to buy ISA (For every 200 you put in the government gives you 50 extra and you can earn up to 3000 over the course of 3 years) and we have payed off our credit cards
Get into a better sleep and activity routine
Because of the nature of my work I often tend to struggle to get enough sleep, to eat proper foods, and generally to get into a routine that works. So this year I will dddicate more time to trying to set a healthy routine that I can follow.
As a treat for getting all the way through that, enjoy this pic of my kitty:
The observant among you may also be able to spot a sneak preview of the Last Dance on the Beach blanket. I will make a post all about it in the next few days so you can see it in all its glory.
What are your goals for the new year? I hope it is a wonderful year for you all!
