This week I want to focus in doing some bits in the flat.
Sort out Tobias’s clothes and put away anything that’s too small, I also want to make a list of anything we’re short of so I can have it in my bag when I’m out and about. I also need to sort out his old toys and decide what I’m keeping and what I’m e-baying or donating to charity.
Rearrange the crockery cupboards I want to get some of these so I can free up so room and move my blender into a cupboard. I have also started using baskets to organise my cupboards which seems to be really helpful. I got these in several different sizes from Wilkinsons and will definitely be getting some more.
Spend at least 2 hours filing the piles of paper, I’ll probably do this while me and T watch a film. The sooner it’s done the sooner I can get rid of the ugly bookcase, I am fed up of moving piles around.
I also want to make a start sorting out what’s going under the bed – I want to make sure everything is washed again before it goes back away.
There’s lots of other bits but there my main goals, what are you planning this week?
I always find myself feeling a little bit down at this time of year, i have an idea in my head of how I want Christmas too be and the reality never quite lives up to my expectations it also reminds me that there are loads of things I had hoped to change over the previous year that are still the same.
This year I am determined to set some goals and make some changes so I can get the most out of 2014
I really struggle to organise my time and its something i really want to get on top of this year, I now know exactly what days and hours I will be at work when I go back at the beginning of march. I am toying with the idea of sending t to nursery for an extra morning or afternoon on one of the days I am not at work so I can do uni work however my mum has said she would like to have him one day a week, but at the moment that isn’t happening so I need to talk to her and get some dates written down.
I need to find some sort of planner / diary that works for me and allows me to get the most out of my time, so that we can enjoy proper quality family time when Sam is home.
I often find myself trying to work out what i want for dinner way after i should be eating it and often skip lunch, this is something i would like to stop and I am going to look at having a more structured meal plan and using the slow cooker on days that I am at work. I am also going to make more of an effort to eat lunch and if I am heading out to take food with me. I often don’t buy nice foods for cooking lunch at home because of the cost but then I end up spending several pounds on a sandwich which defeats the point.
I have moaned about this constantly but I hate the state my flat seems to be all of the time i am naturally a very untitdy person and i really dont like it. I feel a lot calmer and more in control when things are nice and tidy. so i would like to work on finding a cleaning schedule that suits me and that I can keep up with. Having a nice clean home will also make me feel comfortable inviting people over for drinks
I’ll let you know how I get on do you have any goals for 2014?
