Monthly Goals Roundup

Exercise at least 16 times (let's not get too carried away, since this is traditionally my month of hibernation, and I am away for two weekends. Again. And it's the 6th but I've only managed to go twice so far.)
I knew it was too high a target - I got to 13. Not bad, really.

Lose 10lbs. Again.
Sort of. At one point in the month (last Thursday) the scale did indeed register a loss of 10lbs since last month. This has not been maintained through a weekend away in the Smoke. But I think I am claiming a victory anyway.

Recruit a cleaner.
Yes! She's marvellous. Happy happy.

Clear out the wardrobe and organise The Tights.
No and sort of yes. I removed all The Tights from my drawer and put them in a plastic box next to it, and every day I take out a new pair to wear to work. If there is anything even slightly wrong with them, then they go in the bind at the end of the day. I appear to have enough tights to bin a pair every day until March, so this process will take a while.

Finish the blue jumper.
Yes and it's been getting a lot of wear.

Make a good start on knitting the Christmas wreath I have my eye on. I think I need to knit 66 leaves for it. Maybe I can have knitted half by the end of the month? We'll see.
Sort of - well, it's not a good start, really. I have knitted five.

Make some semblance of a start on Parpy Jo's black lace scarf that she requested on her birthday, in June.
Yes - I have knitted about six inches of this. 

Create wider reading lists for all the units I'm teaching year 8 and 9 this year.
No. I only did one. Bad.

Not TOO bad overall. I can live with that.
