Happy 2013!! Oh I am so excited and pumped about this year!! 2013 is going to be HUGE!!! Are you planning a big year?
I am setting some BIG goals in my sights this year and I thought I might share them here on my blog, well where else would I share them!
I have set goals around various life directions and of course crafting rates highly!
Health and Fitness 2012 saw me butt out for good and on May 31st I will clock up 12 months being a non smoker. So the next challenge is to reduce my size by 20%. I have already commenced with a Personal Trainer and the results have started to come in! So big area here!
Family I want us to have some adventures! I have a few things planned for my eldest boy and me but I want us all to make some good memories and have new shared experiences. I am also planning on getting some family photos done.
Career Well it is back to the books this year. I plan to knock of at least 4 subjects from my Grad Dip in Alcohol and Other Drugs Studies. My contract at a local council will end in August so I will need to find another job too!
Community I like to do something each year that is civic minded - I have been involved with a community group called Citizen Advocacy for many years but this year I plan to raise funds for this group. I plan to raise enough for 10 swags!
Meals / Food
I totally need to renew my efforts here. I am going to set some goals around getting better variety of meals on the table and be organised on work days. I want to change the way I view meal prep and have it stop being such a chore. I am going to try new things and maybe some exotic things too!
Lunch boxes : Lunch boxes for all! Healthy and variety and everyday! That's the goal.
Buy less and make more: I actually have never really set this as a goal - but 2013 sees me jumping on this bus! Buy locally, make more, give meaningfully.
Socially and Culturally: I plan to go to see more plays this year and at least 5 movies. I will read 4 books of one of those "must read" lists and attend a big glitzy, ritzy night!
Now this brings to crafting and my home the list will be long my friends!
