18 for 2018 August Review

1 New blog followed per week – 2/4 (yearly total 31/33)

Only a couple this month. It’s been so busy I’ve only just kept up with my regulars, never mind finding new ones!

 

2 New stitches/techniques learned per month – 2/2 (14/16)

Broomstick lace and griddle stitch featured this month.

 

3 Instagram posts per week – 11/13 (109/102)

A bit of an eclectic month, with masks, crochet, flowers, books, and archery making it in there!

 

4 Exercise sessions per week – 25/18 (144/136)

My Dad came for a visit last week, and of course you have to go out and do things, so my step count went waaaay up. But I also hurt my neck quite badly the week before and even the most basic movements were agony, so my exercise took a bit of a blow.

Pretty good on balance though.

 

5 Blog posts written per week – 13/22 (134/169)

Far too much doing and not enough blogging about it. But I’m still chugging along with at least a couple of posts per week so I’m happy.

 

6 Patterns written up – 0.5/6 (3/6)

I finally neatened up and finished the final draft of my waffle hat pattern. However many years later…

 

7 Areas in my flat sorted – 5/7 (5/7)

I had a very thorough sort of my bookcase, sent one box off to Ziffit for a wee bit of money, and gave the rest to a charity shop. I can fit all my books on the shelves again!

 

8 Minutes of writing per day

Pretty steady.

 

9 pm bed time – 12/31 (78/243)

An improvement on last month. The bad news being, it’s only because I hurt my neck and the diazepam made me super sleepy.

 

10% of wages saved – 10/10

Done.

 

12 Hand-written letters – 7/12

None this month.

 

13 New recipes tried – 10/13

The slow cooker got some use this month with a pork and cider stew. I went a bit overboard with the chillis, but a spoon of yoghurt soon sorts that out.

 

14 Meet ups with friends – 14/14 COMPLETE! (stretch goal 17/25)

Just one this month, a visit to my friend who hasn’t been able to get into her flat for over 2 years.

 

15 Birthdays on time – 11/15

No birthdays this month.

 

16 Christmas cards made – 3/16

Nada. Again.

 

17 Birthday cards made – 7/17

None this month.

 

18 Items decluttered – 9/18

Another load of books, and I gave away a little cat brooch that I never wear any more. My friend loves cats just as much as I do so I know she will love it and use it.

 

I definitely need to get a move on with my decluttering and card-making! Those can be my focus for September. The birthdays start up again this month so there should definitely be some movement to show in the next review.

 

How’s everyone else’s goals going, if you set any? Got any exciting plans for September? Let me know in the comments!
