Time flies.

Today I was calculating Very Boring Money Stuff (as is the technical term, I believe) and I realised that I get paid again in two weeks, which means that we're now halfway through February. How?! It was Christmas last week, I'm sure of it...

Thanks to this revelation, I've made the decision to plan my year month by month. My plans include (but are not limited to) the following:

  • Learn to cross stitch.
  • Pick up my crochet hook and actually finish a piece!
  • Read one book a month. I used to read one a week when I was commuting an hour each way to my old job but it really has fallen by the wayside.
  • Take more photos.
  • Stop being so lazy with my hair.
  • Start running again.
  • Take up yoga.
  • Bake! I haven't baked a single thing since I moved in with Steven and I miss it.
  • Save as much money as is comfortable each month.
  • Make more of an effort to see my friends once a month. We all have very different schedules and there's the financial aspect to it now that I have to travel to visit them but friendships need to be nurtured and I can't complain that I'm lonely if I don't make the effort.
  • Take my dog for longer walks and use it as a chance to explore! I've been very bad about taking him out for the bare minimum amount of time and it's not fair to him as he's full of energy and I shouldn't use my loathing of the rain as an excuse.
I'm sure I'll add more as I think of them but this is definitely enough to get going. Watch this space!
