|a beautiful grey Melbourne day|
It has been far too long between goal orientated posts on this blog, and since I'm gearing up to have a productive November I thought it best to jot down my intentions in the hopes of sticking to them all. Is it just me, or do you get things done with more efficiency when they are written down and you are more accountable?!
#1- Getting 70% of my Christmas shopping bought and wrapped!
I've already got quite a lot of my shopping done and my thoughts are that a relaxing December would be such a magical thing to enjoy instead of rushing around for last minute gifts. For the first time I won't be working late trade hours during the festive season and the thought of cozy nights in front of the tree with Mister and Charlie sounds fabulous! A few of the older kids in our family are getting gift cards this year so they will be bought in the week leading up to Christmas for them, hence the 70% goal.
#2- Complete my 2015 NaNoWriMo!
National Novel Writing Month is upon us and I've been tracking alright for my first attempt - I definitely need to pump out some more words in the coming weeks though. For more info on what it's all about, check out this link.
#3- Read 6 books
I'm not sure how 6 books will find themselves read this month with all the writing I have planned, but I have to catch up for my Goodreads challenge so I'm going to give it a red hot go! Mister is away on a work trip this week so I should have a lot more time to get stuck into a book.
#4- Head to the cinema with Mumma Bovary!
Mumma B isn't a huge fan of watching movies but The Dressmaker caught her eye, so I'm hoping to make a night of it and head out for dinner as well!
#5- Continue my nail polish purge!
I want to get rid of at least 10 more bottles (because as you will soon see, I've hauled a bunch of amazing polish I need to make room for!)
