What I have done in February

15. Have a beach holiday and relax – Done end Feb (as we speak!)

16. Wear a dress now and then (at least on Spring day and Valentines day) – 1/9 Spring day skirt wearing *check* – 25/10 Wore a skirt again (no pics this time sorry) – 11/12 Wore a long-ish skirt to lunch 14/2 – Valentine’s Day – rocked a skirt

17. Update my will

What I still intend to do this year (in no particular order):

  1. Move to a 2 bedroom place
  2. Maintain an actual hairstyle (possibly the one you see me sporting in this photo) – I’m actually thinking of gowing a bit longer now
  3. Print some photos for our albums – unless there is a big increase in my immediate future this probably isn’t going to fly
  4. Lose another 5kg (hopefully around my non-existent middle) – I am back to 4 to lose on this one
  5. Find a job/career I love – Plan is in process. Macgafter (CSP Boiler) is being tested. Presentations are being compiled. World domination is imminent! Also there is this other potential ops thing looming at the secret place. 
  6. Have at least 4 weekends away – 3/11 Nylstroom weekend
  7. Go and see at least 2 movies in a cinema – 6/1 – Puss in Boots
  8. Keep my car clean (inside and outside) – Dismal fail
  9. Get Nicola potty trained – Ongoing
  10. Have a birthday party for myself
  11. Take or have taken more photos of Nicola and myself together – This is going very well so far
  12. Make homemade gifts for my very special people – Ongoing
  13. Go to church more often (this will not be hard to do since we didn’t go when we were sick, and we were mostly sick)
  14. Random acts of kindness whenever I can – was okay for Feb, but could have done better
  15. At least one grand adventure!
  16. Put a serious dent in my debt – *sob* this month’s dental happenings have put me back quite a bit.
  17. Stop smoking (again)

Roundabout halfway mark in goals, slightly more than halfway in time. The question is…can I still hit them all? (except keeping the car clean – that one’s a dead loss). 😉



  1. Well done. Now stop smoking again.

  2. Thanks 😆 Yes…I know. It’s time.

Say something...come on! You know you want to?
