July Goals

Wow. I can't believe it's July already. Sorry for the lack of posting in June, but it was a bit of a rough month. But the good news is... I got most of my May goals ticked off : ) I thought I'd done quite badly, ha ha. But upon reflection, the only two I didn't manage to accomplish are 34 and 85. YAY!

From Once Wed

So, onto my July goals (more on our trip to Queenstown next time)...

- Host a proper English tea party
- Grow my nails
- Make at least two of the projects I pinned on my Made With Love board on Pinterest.
- Try 4 dinner recipes off my Yumminess board
- Really put some effort into thinking ways to improve my job and how to leave it at work

I have to say, I'm very jealous of all the summer pins floating about and all the blog posts I keep reading on summer fun. It's been freezing (okay, cold) and wintery here. But all in good time. At least I have a good excuse to snuggle with hot chocolate!

I'll be back soon with a recap of our fantastic holiday to Queenstown.

Spot you soon

101 in 1001

Right, so first of all, sorry it's been ages since I've posted! I guess life just got away with me. I took on a new role at work, and let's just say it's kept me very busy...

I've been doing the Day Zero Project since 1 January 2012. It's basically a list of 101 goals or challenges to complete in 1001 days (ends up being 2.75 years). I'd post my entire list, but I think you'd probably be bored stiff. So instead, since I've been a little useless and not really ticked off many goals, I'll take after Emily from Em for Marvelous and break it up into little manageable lists. She's amazing and makes everything seem so effortless.

Anyway, without further ado, here's my list for May...

- No 3. Start and keep a bible verse journal
- No 34. Stop biting/grow my nails - I'm attempting to do this by rubbing cuticle balm into my cuticles, trimming the
  pokey bits and putting hand cream on every night before bed. So far so good!
- No 62. Visit the South Island
- No 65. Visit the Lord of The Rings film locations (nos 9 Queenstown region, 13 Arrowtown Reserve and 18
- No 67. See the Nutcracker ballet
- No 73. Clean out and organise my room
- No 85. Learn how to French plait my hair

I can't remember who's photo this, but pretty sure I got it off flickr.

We're going to Queenstown at the end of May : ) Weeeeee! So that should sort out numbers 62 and 65. I'm so excited I can hardly wait. I may or may not (I'm not admitting anything) have already made a packing list for our 4 day trip. Ha ha ha.

Spot you soon
