Three months. Three months until my favourite month. December.
Confession: I am a fully grown child who gets more excited about Christmas than your average 6 year-old. I’m not even a little bit sorry.
Until then, there is still so much to do! I’ve decided to put my thoughts out there into the world in the hope that, because I’ve typed them, I’ll be more likely to do all of these things. Not the most original of posts but I’m hoping it’ll make me more excited for the present, rather than waiting ‘til tomorrow, Friday, my birthday, the weekend, Monday, Christmas, New Year (Hogmanay here in Sconny Botland), after –insert event or time of year here -, whatever it is. Something I am guilty of, so I’m actively trying to stop myself from wishing the years away.
- Dublin Trip
My girl squad and I are currently planning a weekend away to my favourite country in the world, but a city I’ve never been to! I think this is the last one to tick off my list for Ireland. They are the most fantastic girls and I’ve heard Dublin is a fantastic city! Please leave any recommendations or suggestions below! Anything and everything welcome.
- Spend more quality time with Greg.
I know, I live with the man! But it’s the quality part that matters. After work we cook dinner and collapse on the couch and muster the strength to describe our days in less than a tweet-worth of conversation. I’m ashamed of my effort when I think about it. Before we lived together, and Greg worked away, every conversation sparkled and the
days and hours were counted ‘til we saw each other again. It was bliss and something that can easily come back. Living together means things get comfortable and easy. Both of which are lovely, but it is so important to still make the effort where possible. I want to disappear somewhere with him, switching off all electronics and create our own little bubble for the day. Our only worries being each other.
Life and work can get so busy that it seems to fall down the list of priorities. Not intentional, but something that has to be watched and caught before it gets ridiculous. I quite like the wee ginge, and I’d like to show him how much I like him more often.
- Lose at least 5lbs.
As you may or may not know, I have recently started Slimming World (blog post coming
soon!). I’m not saying it’s the way forward for everyone, it’s just that I am currently
painfully unhappy with how I feel in my own skin at the moment – something I intend to fix before I marry the love of my life, next July.
- Get more items ticked off the wedding ‘To Do’ List
As previously mentioned, I’m getting married next July and, although we have ticked off lots of big things, there are still
some left over and I’d love to have them well and truly booked up and organised before the month is out. Wedding-related post coming soon for those interested!
- See our niece and nephew more often and take more photos of them.
They are my world and are growing up way too fast *cliché claxon *.
It is true though and I’m mortified when I think of how few photos we have of these tiny, gorgeous humans. This will be fixed. I hope.
- Get into my teaching groove.
I’m new to the game and this will be my first full month of teaching.
I really want to embrace every aspect of this wonderful vocation and I give it my all.
I am excited to be the protective lioness over my gorgeous cubs.
What are your goals for this month? Let me know in the comments below!
Til next time,
