It's been a okay sort of week. I've stuck to the goals but haven't really achieved the results I would have liked.
Goal 1 - Personal:
really achieve my personal goal for August but as I'll still be working on it as
part of Slim Down
setting a new personal goal for this challenge. I start teaching again next week
and that, put together with caring for Ced, means that I know I will get
overtired and end up spending any free time I have resting and/or doing nothing.
So, I've decided to allocate myself some quality 'me time' every day,
to be used as the mood takes me but to be an activity of some kind - e.g.
photography, music, meeting friends, crafting. I'd also like to find the time to
do some extra blog posts rather that just the regular meme
Update week 1:
I've managed 'me time' 4 days out of 7, but to be honest I just forgot on the
other 3 days!
Update week 2: This is going well. I still
haven't managed every day and it seems to have settled at 4 days out of 7 again
but I am happy with that. Still haven't managed any crafting but did do an
extra blog post this week.
Update week 3: This hasn't gone as well as I'd hoped. I've still managed some 'me time' but only for reading, blogging and watching TV, but not for the sort of activities I'd really like to make time for.
Goal 2 - Professional: to
design and produce some new worksheets for the beginners, to cover key
signatures and note recognition.
Update week 1: I've made a start and have
the draft information sorted.
Update week 2:
COMPLETED. The worksheets were issued this week.
Goal 3 - Home: This goal is
in part a continuation from last month and involves keeping the decluttered
rooms clean and tidy. In addition I want to defrost and refill the freezer,
finish sorting and filing our personal papers and also review the
Update week 1:
I've defrosted the freezer and started refilling it. The house is still
tidy and I've made a start on the filing and reviewing the
Update week 2: Completed the
defrosting/refilling the freezer, filing personal papers and reviewing the
budget. The decluttered rooms are still tidy.
Update week 3: The decluttered rooms are still tidy - I've now got into the habit of putting away and clearing up as I go along. I still need to hoover and dust every room properly.
