1 New blog followed per week – 6/4 (yearly total 37/41)
I even managed to catch up a bit this month! So many fun new blogs to follow.
2 New stitches/techniques learned per month – 1/2 (15/20)
I learned about slipping the first stitch of every row when knitting, what this does to the look of the edging, and how it changes the way you seam.
3 Instagram posts per week – 12/13 (126/127)
I’m doing pretty well with this one.
4 Exercise sessions per week – 14/18 (162/170)
I would like to blame the weather and the clock change, but really I’ve just not been too bothered this month.
5 Blog posts written per week – 10/21 (151/210)
Not terrible, but not exactly great either.
6 Patterns written up – 3/6 (3/6)
7 Areas in my flat sorted – 5/7 (5/7)
8 Minutes of writing per day
Some progress, but not as much as I would like.
9 pm bed time – 6/31 (88/304)
10% of wages saved – 10/10
12 Hand-written letters – 10/12
Nearly there! Being off work ill meant I got to reply to a letter the same week I received it! That never happens. Ever.
13 New recipes tried – 12/13
Nothing new this month.
14 Meet ups with friends – 14/14 COMPLETE! (stretch goal 20/25)
I can’t believe I’m so close to meeting my stretch goal too. Maybe I should have stretched further!
In October I went to my friend’s wedding and stayed all the way to the evening do (normally my social energy runs dry about halfway through the reception), and I went to the pub with some of my choir friends.
15 Birthdays on time – 12/15
I do actually have enough friends with birthdays late in the year to meet this goal, I just need to sort myself out and get them all on time!
16 Christmas cards made – 8/16
I got a jump on this one, although I’m not sure how many of the cards I’ll actually use. Explanation when I finish my next blog post.
17 Birthday cards made – 8/17
18 Items decluttered – 13/18
I had been holding on to a biiiig box of stuff, hoping to either car boot or ebay it, but after a month of it sitting there I figured I probably wouldn’t ever get round to it. So the whole lot went to the charity shop; books, cuddly toys, some ‘interesting’ yarn, and some more clothes.
It’s certainly not the worst month I’ve ever had, but not the best either. It feels good to be so close to meeting a few goals, and I’m quite determined to kick it into gear and work harder on the rest.
How was your October? Did you meet any goals? Let me know in the comments!
