Resolutions, resolutions

Month 5 of the year and still a few things to cross off the list on the old resolutions lis

  • Blog once a week (at least) – Been doing this.  In March I blogged once every day but I’ve made a conscious decision to cut back to twice / three times a week  to give myself a bit of a breather
  • Tweet once a day (at least) – doing quite well.  I’m trying to get more involved as well when I can.  Hoping to move onto the next stage of list management
  • Become more patient with the kids (if they let me) – Patience has been tested this month.  Mia’s potty training has not gone smoothly after a promising start
  • Make a concerted effort to reduce on the swearing – Doing ok, though there are still occasions where profanities are uttered
  • Film more family memories – yes, lots of footage and photos of the kids


  • Get eldest riding a bike without stabilisers – stabilisers are off as are pedals (allegedly meant to help)
  • Go camping at least twice (now once) – booked for June
  • Organise a reunion with friends from Portugal who I have not seen for 20 years – Portugal trip planned and meet up being organised
  • Become mayor of somewhere on Fourquare (my own home or workplace not included) – 12 mayorships that include supermarket, coffee shop, DIY store, nursery and work & home
  • Get to Wii Fit age of 37 – last measurement was 41 so heading in the right direction
  • De-clutter the house – House de-cluttering in process.  Garage cluttering proceeding nicely.
  • Sell something at a car boot sale – aiming for May 8th
  • Move house – heavily reliant on ‘De-cluttering the house’ but still on the cards
  • Get on a Segway (easy one as a ride on one was a Xmas present, but still valid I think) – Done in February
  • (NEW) Take kids swimming on a regular basis – still going strong… also due to good weather we invested in a paddling pool
  • (NEW) Read a book a month – I read Brand Hijack, and have started the Thank You Economy which is looking promising
  • (NEW) – limit myself to a maximum of two coffees per day.  I’ve been following this quite well with only 2 a day although I sometimes go for a third at the weekends
