A somewhat pictureless post for now, as I managed to crack my phone screen in my pocket and of course that’s where I keep all my photos!
1 New blog followed per week – 4/4 (yearly total 21/21)
A reader pointed me to some more tatting blogs this month. I love looking at the photos and wondering how long it’ll take for my tatting to be half that good 😉
2 New stitches/techniques learned per month – 1/2 (9/10)
The month whizzed by and I only had chance to learn the mattress joining stitch. It is wizardry though so I’m not disappointed!
3 Instagram posts per week – 14/13 (82/63)
I felt like I hardly posted at all, but I more than met my goal. Maybe it’s just because I didn’t post regularly.
4 Exercise sessions per week – 22/18 (77/84)
Sunshine helps so much with this one! It’s far easier to get outside for a walk when it’s not raining sideways or freezing cold.
As well as the canal, I found a public park quite near my work so I’ve been heading there for some walks as well.
5 Blog posts written per week – 13/23 (92/105)
Er yeah. I’ve actually written a few that I haven’t posted yet, but I still definitely fell short. I knew this one was coming though; I really lost my blogging mojo this month. I feel like it’s back again now so here’s hoping I can catch up.
6 Patterns written up – 1.5/6 (1.5/6)
7 Areas in my flat sorted – 3.5/7 (3.5/7)
I wish I had taken a before photo of my yarn stash so you could see the difference right now. It’s even colour coded!
8 Minutes of writing per day
Mostly done, it just wasn’t blog-writing.
9 pm bed time – 4/31 (52/151)
Well. Better than last month, I guess?
10% of wages saved – 10/10
Done and done.
12 Hand-written letters – 6/12
One more added to the pile.
13 New recipes tried – 7/13
After nabbing some chorizo at the farmers market I found a recipe for chicken and chorizo jambalaya. Never heard of jambalaya before so I had to try it, and I’m glad I did because it was lovely!
14 Meet ups with friends – 12/14
My choir put on a ceilidh (kay-lee) and I only meant to go for an hour or so, but I ended up dancing the whole night away.
I also got in another birthday meet up, as this was the first date I could get in at the archery centre. I loved it of course, and the awesome thing is so did my friends! Plus I got this badass picture of me.
15 Birthdays on time – 8/15
There have been no birthdays this month, which feels odd after the first 4 months of the year.
16 Christmas cards made – 3/16
I whacked out a couple more, it is so strange making Christmas cards in the sunshine.
17 Birthday cards made – 5/17
No birthdays means no cards made either.
18 Items decluttered – 6/18
I had a sort out of my wardrobe and got rid of some dresses and tops that I will never wear again. It’s still pretty crowded in there though so maybe I should have another look through! I’m also getting rid of some yarn I knew I would never use.
Another up and down month this time, but I was never aiming for perfection. The focus for June is to sort out my flipping bed time!! I’ve set a permanent alarm on my phone for 8pm, to kick in my night time routine and hopefully get me ready to face plant my bed by 9. Keep your fingers crossed for me!
How are everyone’s goals going (if you set any)? Did you have a good May? Let me know in the comments!
