2018 Blog Goals Quarterly Update #2

At the beginning of the year I sat down and made some goals, both for the blog and for family life. Unlike last year, I think I was a bit more realistic in my goals this year and I set out to achieve just a few things. Now that we’re 6 months into the year, it’s time for another update. Youtube I only started my Youtube channel back in November of last year so it’s still quite a new thing for me and I still haven’t got into a nice routine with it. However, I have gone from 600 subscribers

2018 Family Goals Quarterly Update #2

How on Earth is it the end of June already? It felt like only 2 minutes ago that I was writing the first quarterly update for the goals I made at the beginning of the year. So, now that we’re 6 months into the year, here’s another update: Family Time We have been very lucky to have had 2 holidays since the last update. In April we went to Majorca for just over a week and then this month we went to Haven for a few nights. We have had plenty of quality family time together which has really been

2018 Family Goals: Quarterly Update 1

A couple of days ago you might have read the update for the blog goals I made this year. Well, I also made some family goals at the beginning of the year and here is how I’ve been getting on. De-cluttering Unfortunately, this goal has not gone well AT ALL! My sister moved in with us mid-December so right now she’s living in our spare bedroom. Before she moved in this was a bit of a dumping ground where I would keep everything I am trying to sell on Facebook. The metal shelving unit you can see in the picture

2018 Blog Goals: Quarterly Update 1

Wow, the first quarter of the year has gone already. I can’t quite believe it’s very nearly April. At the beginning of the year I decided to set myself some goals so I thought that this would be the perfect opportunity to do a bit of an update. Youtube I started the Youtube channel back in November ’17 so really, not that long ago. Although I haven’t made quite as many videos as I would have liked I am still pretty happy with how everything is going. With just over 600 subscribers now I feel like I’m going the right

2018 Family Goals

Last year, as well as making blogging goals I also made some family goals. Unfortunately, I did not do nearly as well with these as I did the blogging goals and that’s a real shame. I kind of forgot about some of them to be completely honest but I’m going to attempt it again for 2018. Family Time I hate to say it but I think this is the one area I failed at the most this year. I wanted to spend at least one day a weekend with John and Erin and that just hasn’t happened. I have been

2017 Family Goals

Last week I posted about my goals for the blog in 2017. Today I’m talking about my family goals. I think that there is a lot I would like us to achieve this year so this list will be quite varied. Family days out – We didn’t do nearly enough of this in 2016. Funds are always quite tight seeing as I only work part time now so we have to be quite careful. John also works a lot of 6 day weeks so sometimes we only get a Sunday together. Even if it’s a walk to the local park, that

2017 Blog Goals

Last year, one of my biggest goals for the blog was to get a domain and I did that! Me, him, the dog and a baby! is a serious part of my life now and I have lots of things I want to achieve this year. So, here goes: Schedule in advance – this is something I used to do all the time. I don’t know what happened. Maybe it was Erin getting more mobile. Just recently though I have been writing the day before a post is due and never actually ahead. I need to sort this out so

June Goals

Since Erin arrived in the world I haven’t really put enough effort into some aspects of my life. There are loads of things I want to do/ think about doing but I seem to just never get round to them. I love a good list and I figured it would be a good idea to set myself some goals at the beginning of each month and then see how I did at the end. My goals are going to be a real mix so here goes: Learn more about plugins – I’ve just moved the blog over to a domain and
