This is my first set of Weekly Wishes for 2015… Last week I posted a list of my blogging goals for the year. In order to achieve those goals, as well as my personal ones, I need to actually set realistic, weekly goals and stick to them!
This week has been hard. I have a chest infection, and have barely been able to walk without using an inhaler. There have been two trips to the doctor for medication, but we’ve barely left the house other than to pop to the shops to get supplies. I’ve tried my best to spend quality time with S, but she’s a boisterous toddler who wants me to push her round and round in circles in a cardboard box, then chase her round the house and come upstairs fifty times a day to wash her hands… and it’s hard work at the best of times! I fear that I have been a proper crappy mother, and S has had a rubbish Christmas of too much TV and not enough fun.
Enough of that… how did I get on with last week’s goals?
Enjoy my time off – well, in terms of the fact we’ve slept in most mornings, had lots of cuddles and spent a lot of time together, yes I suppose I have enjoyed my time off. I am disappointed though; I would have liked to take S out more, to go to different places and have more visitors. We had to cancel a lot of plans, and not make others, because I was ill.
Get the podcast set up – this didn’t happen. I have researched a few bits and bobs, but the actual part where I record a podcast, edit it and publish it for download… nope. I don’t want my first ever podcast to be of me struggling to speak as I cut out coughing fits! I’ve no choice but to delay the launch of the podcast until I’m able to complete a sentence!
Tidy up after Christmas – er… well, sort of. Bits and bobs have been put away, and the house is not a full-on tip any more… but I would have hoped to have taken down decorations and packed them away by now. I have a real tree this year though, and I can’t find any details on my local council website of how to get it collected – something they allegedly do. If we had a fake tree like last year, it would have been packed away ages ago.. probably!
