The temptations are flying at me - an email from the Book People, catalogues from Lakeland and Bravissimo - but I am not buying, so they are going in the recycle bins, both on the computer and in real life.
I have been inspired and enthused by several people just lately and I am feeling another challenge coming on. Our challenges here make me work harder, but I am also needing to work smarter and achieve more, rather than plodding from day to day and not having much impact on our goals.
Part of the trouble is that I seem to spend my days doing things for other people for little or no recompense, so whilst I am sure I am doing good generally, I am not doing the family any good. We are not moving our family goals any further forward, and so that is my challenge this time - I plan to do one thing each day which moves this family forward.
Just a little snag with that. We haven't got a family plan yet. Guess that it is the first step......
And my birthday list - all those things I want to do before I turn 40 at the end of September? I never quite got round to making a proper page and a list on here for those, but I have a few in a notebook, and I can quite happily report that I have lost a stone since the start of May, so that is one thing moving in the right direction - yippee!!
It may be a bit quiet on here for a few days whilst I sort myself out now, because I have to do some thinking and planning....keep waving occasionally though, as I am still here, and will be back shortly. Let's hope the sun shines for a day so I can sit in the verandah in the sun whilst I ponder - I wish.....
