A rambling collection of my thoughts about life, my children and crafty things

Progress report – the rebellion begins

I saw these a while ago and talked myself out of getting them. We went back in there today and Steven gave me the look and asked ‘what will you wear them with?’ I ignored the negativity, went with my gut feeling and bought them. I can’t walk in them yet but so what. It felt good.

Goals for 2010

Right, I’m late in starting this so I would like to achieve these things in 12 months from today

To make my bedroom a lovely room that I like
To have an organised, tidy garden with no stinging nettles
To stay at 10.5 stone
To pass my politics module and continue with my MSc
To progress at work, taking on more responsibility
To own at least 3 pairs of ‘pretty’ shoes that are not practical
To make more of my own clothes
To stop worrying about things and keep everything in perspective

I will add to this list as time goes on!

Looking forward

Not written anything in a good while as we’ve been away and I managed to kill yet another laptop power cable!

Been thinking in a deep and meaningful way recently and trying to sort lots of things out. After Samuel was ill I had counselling which helped sort out things that have happened and made me see that Steven and I did a good job at the time and still are doing well. I’ve now started to look forward in a positive way rather than dwelling on the negative things that have upset me in recent months. Someone I met through the heartline board is doing a life coaching course and needed guinea pigs to work on. After looking into it I decided it would be a good opportunity that fits in really well time wise. Where counselling looked at the past, life coaching now looks at the future, what I want and helps me decide how to get there.

I feel this year is going to be important – I’m 30 next month, I’ve recently lost nearly 2 stone (I haven’t weighed this much since I was about 16) and I feel like I’m moving into a different phase of my life. I remember feeling the same way when I was 16 – it involved stripping alot of wallpaper then and I’m trying hard not to do that this time!

Inspired by my friends (both the Mels!) I have put together a list of things I want to do in the next 12 months. I just have to work out how I’m going to get there now!
