My get good summer goals

Wednesday, 2 July 2014

Recently Mr MoaB and I started writing a 'Things To Do Before I'm 2' list for Little Miss A and we've already started ticking some of the things off. Then I heard about the 'Get Good Summer' linky over at Clarina's Contemplations and I liked the idea of setting 5 goals for me to achieve in the next 10 weeks.

So here goes... my #getgoodsummer list:

1) Create a family photo book
For a long time I've been talking about creating a photo book with pictures of all our close family and friends. Unfortunately, we don't live near most of our family (we've also lost a lovely family member this year) so this will be an important family record and allow us to show Little Miss A the pictures and discuss the people, her relationship to them, where they live etc.  I've actually done most of the hard work of sorting through hundreds of photos to find pictures of each person, so now it's a case of collating the book and then I will need to keep my eyes open for a deal to get it printed.

2) Redesign my blog website
I started this blog at the start of the year and didn't 100% know what I'd really be writing about. I just wanted to give creating a website and a blog a go! The priority was to get something live on the URL and build up the content. I've done this now and have found that I absolutely love writing the blog. Therefore I need to redesign the website and make it more user-friendly.

3) Read a book
I used to read a lot of books but I think the last book I actually finished was a Baby book before Little Miss A was born! I've started lots but just not read a whole one cover to cover. So this summer, I'm going to get myself a chick-lit book from the library and actually put time aside to read it!

4) Do a craft project
I love getting crafty. Little Miss A is still a bit too young but I can't wait until we can do craft projects together. I'm not sure what project I'm going to do yet but it needs to involve using my glue gun that I bought this year!

5) Try out more recipes
I'm not a confident cook. As a bit of fussy eater, I always used to play it a bit safe with food and go for pretty plain and boring stuff, over and over again. I'm getting better and I get quite a lot of compliments from Mr MoaB on my cooking, particularly my curries now. However, we are stuck in a bit of a rut with a limited repertoire of dishes that we both like. So I need to get braver in the kitchen and start trying out some new recipes.

There you have it! My goals for the summer. I'll let you know how I get on.

Wish me luck!
