Me and My Targets for 2017

I don’t really do resolutions and I know we are almost halfway through January, but I’ve decided I need to have some goals for this year to keep my head from turning to porridge! I’ve mostly chosen 12 of each – one for each month of the year, obviously!

1) Read – I’ve already set a target on Goodreads to read 12 books this year. Last year’s was a washout because I got stuck reading a Classic that I really didn’t like and just couldn’t get past it.

2) Craft – in honoured my newly finished Sewing Room I want to make 12 items this year. I already have 3 in mind, so that’s a good start.

3) Cook – I’m going to try 12 recipes from the many Foreign cookbooks I have that I’ve been meaning to make and never got round to. 

4) Bake – Again, one recipe each month for a technique/recipe that’s a bit out of my comfort zone to expand my knowledge.

5) Visit – There are so many places on this fab island of ours that I’ve never been to, so I’m hoping to choose 6 in the next year, hopefully to include Wales, Scotland and possibly even Ireland!

6) Skill – I really like those wavey, ripple crochet blankets – if I start to learn how to do that now it could possibly be my final craft item for the end of the year, right?

Addendum. I’ve been reminded that we have a piano in our dining room and I need to restart learning how to play it!

So that’s it. I’ll try and update my progress at the end of each month, so that’s 12 blogposts sorted out too!

  1. Ilove the fact that you’ve catagorised your targets and that there isn’t one that says lose a shed load of weight. Often the one that is never acheived unless you are really, really determined and can honestly say no to cake! M book shelves have been filling up steadily since joining a book group, although it’s been a struggle to finish some. I’m currently reading The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood and it’s hard going. Good luck with your list. x

    1. Yes sometimes the local places get a little forgotten! In the past year or so we’ve visited Winston Churchill’s house at Chartwell and the garden’s at Anne Boleyn’s home at Hever – both within 10 miles! I think Highclerc where they filmed Downton Abbey is a possible this year. I’ll drag the hubby there…no kids to please these days.
