A February round up and March’s Goals

March 2, 2014 6 Comments

For our entire relationship Jim’s gone to India for the majority of February and this year has been no different. But before he left we ate out a LOT. Over the weekend before he left weekend we had 2 evening meals, one lunch and one breakfast out! The eggs benedict at Tamper is maybe my favourite meal about now. I collected a spotty car. I switched this blog to a custom domain. We also went and bought new trainers (his and hers air max’s. We are so chavvy!) Then Flash and I saw him off and settled in for a month just the two of us. Well, that’s a lie, it’s a month of just us and him having some lovely little holidays at my parents. It was also a month of 4 day weeks to use up some of the holiday I’d been saving for the big house move (we have however got a sort of, hopeful, fingers crossed date for the move in the far distant future). Once Jim had gone to India, I set about teaching myself to tile and did a pretty decent job I think. I also did some sewing and made my dad some stuff for the boat out of an old sail, I went gin tasting with the WI, went to see Tom Odell, and played a LOT with my new Cricut mini (more on that another time). I also walked. Loads. 

And not to March. We still have another 9 days without Jim to make the most of, but her is what I’d like to achieve. 

What are you up to this March?

    Excellent goals – it sounds like you're going to have a very productive month! I'm impressed with you mad craft/handyman skillz in February! x

      Mad is the work for thinking you can tile a kitchen……trust me.

    I like this list and your more achievable swim goals (I might try to alter mine to be more like yours). March is a month filled with trips to London so not great but I have fun things planned on those trips (pub quizzes, pancakes and late night shopping, a hen do and lunch with my family to name a few) so I think I need to get that frown turned upside down.

      I think makingsure every trip back to London is packed with fun things would be the way to get through it. Jim's started pre-planning meals out and visits to people every time he's in India now to make it a bit more bearable.

    Good job on the tiles missus! Good luck with your March goals, especially thinning out the craft supplies, I find this to be an impossible task! x

      I am about 200% sure that sorting out the craft supplies will be a useless task. A friend who's off travelling has juat announced she's bringing me her ribbons and glitter to add to my stash! Ooooops.
