Goals for June

LOTS of goals this month, and varied too.
  • Finish one delinquent knitting project - likely to be the red cardigan I started a year ago.
  • Finish the new lace shawl I started this week.
  • Properly plan and practice the opening speech and presentation skills workshop I have to give at the conference I've been planning for the end of the month.
  • Update the G&T list at work.
  • Arrange the Malaysia trip meeting and plan something for it.
  • Spend less money. Having all the car money in my account has made me more frivolous than usual and I've been buying a lot more than usual. I intend to not spend more than my salary this month....well, apart from when I have to hand over the cash for the new car.
  • Sort through The Shoes and get them into a proper sort of order.
  • Arrange to have the shelves and rails put up in the kitchen - which will then be FINALLY DONE - not even two years after we begun! We were speedy with this one (rolly eyes)
  • Organise the spare room, and paint the corner that needs painting, so I can get shelving up.
  • NOT get sun burn. This ties in with my news year's resolutions, but I think this is going to be the prime month for it.
  • Get up to 30 hours total time on the Wii Fit - I need to do another 5ish. It's always easier when Big Brother is on and I'm marking, because I like to do free step while watching it, since it's usually the only exercise I can manage.
  • Lose 10lbs. I can totally do this. I want to wear the nice Coast dress I bought in a charity shop for the year 11 ball on June 29th, and it's a little tight for the moment.
I am feeling all inspired today, though since marking begins 2 weeks today, I may be a little hopeful. There's quite a lot to do there. However, my exam classes will be gone so I gain 10 hours a fortnight of time (just over a quarter of my timetabled hours) and I have reported final levels for a lot of my other classes, so I can do fun non-writing History with them which will cut down on marking. I love the summer term.

I was thinking this year has gone superquick, since it is summer already, but when I went back to last year's blog posts to see if I'd written anything about the delinquent red cardigan (I did write a little something) I realised Rav day was exactly a year ago this weekend and I couldn't believe it has only been a year since then, and Beccy's wedding. I have squeezed a lot into the school year this year.

Hi - sorry to leave this "thank you" as a blog comment. But: Thank you for posting on my blog re: the Westbury White Horse. I knew someone out there would be able to help me out with my wee riddle!
