Weekly Wishes (2)


Another hectic week… I am so over the Christmas rush now! Actually… I don’t think anything I did this week was anything to do with the Christmas rush. It was just hectic.

My week involved: a day’s training in the office of a local company who want me to help out in the new year; a trip to Wave 105 to record this week’s five things; a fantastic talk from Doug Richard (off Dragons Den), making fun plans with friends for the new year… oh, and trying to cram in a ton of actual work around it.

So how did I do with this week’s goals?

Meditate twice – Fail, fail, fail, fail. I woke up before S on Sunday morning and was tempted to sneak out of bed to meditate before she got up… but by the time I came back from the bathroom, she was awake. My evenings just seem to be running away from me to be honest. Maybe I should leave this one until after the Christmas rush has died down a bit and I have time to scratch my bum!

Spend some quality time with S – I think I did okay with this. We had a chilled day off on Wednesday, and on Thursday instead of taking her to her friend’s for tea I brought her home and we chilled out together. We’ve both been feeling quite run down lately and much as I knew she would enjoy going to her friend’s for tea, I knew she would benefit more from a nice quiet evening and an early night. We had a lovely weekend together too; we’ve one more week of nursery and then two weeks off together. I can’t wait!

Get ahead with some work – er… well, the one day I had to actually do any work, I was ill and ended up passing out on the sofa. I’m still flying by the seat of my pants, work-wise and only doing work as I hurtle toward deadlines. This week doesn’t look much better to be honest; I don’t even have a full day at home in which to crack on with some work. Then again, if I only have a couple of hours I tend to be more productive so perhaps (hopefully) I’ll be ok!

This week’s goals
Take some time for myself – as mentioned above, I have a ridiculous week coming up with loads of appointments and stuff I can’t move. It’s going to be hectic, and I need to make sure I take some time here and there for myself, so that I’m not stressy with S when I’m spending time with her.
Get ahead with my work – I know, I had this one last week too – but I really have no choice this week! Nursery closes on Friday for two weeks, and I really don’t want to spend our Christmas holidays playing “just a minute sweetie” with S while I try to get things written and posted for clients. So this week I need to do as much as possible. This goal may be in direct conflict with the previous one.
Finish the Christmas shopping – I don’t want to spend S’s Christmas holiday dragging her around shops trying to find random things. Going to the shops with a toddler at this time of year is fun only if you don’t need to actually buy things.
Have you set yourself any goals this week?

Great goals this week! Getting the holiday shopping done is pretty nightmarish without a toddler with me, so I can’t even imagine what you must endure. You can accomplish all of your goals and more. You got this! xoxo
