Whooo, what a month! My February was really hectic for me, but I enjoyed it!
Let’s recap on how I did with my goals…
February’s Monthly Goals:
Begin Serious Business Planning – Don’t laugh; despite the fact I wrote this down and it was at the top of these posts all month, I kind of forgot it was here. I forgot I’d written these exact words. I always thought a business plan was just what you had to do if you were going to the bank to beg for money but my friend Jez gave me a bit of a talking to, and helped me to start a proper business plan. So I’ve gone from thinking I should probably sort out a real idea of what to do with my business, and an actual, real-life, grown up business plan.
Stick to my Happiness Project Challenge – February’s challenge was to exercise and eat more healthily. I probably failed miserably at this. I could come up with a bunch of excuses about having no time, too much on my plate, blah blah – but it would be just that – excuses.
Get One Room Completely Sorted – I did not quite manage this one – but I had a good go at it! Since we moved in here, every room has had that awful junk-shop feel, with piles of clothes and paperwork and… well, junk in every room. My bedroom is quite large, and for months there has been a narrow path through the piles of crap from the door to the bed. The living room is long and narrow, and so often there hasn’t even been that narrow path. The tidying/clearing has been slow moving, purely because I have genuinely had a lot on my plate this month. I have cleared huge piles of junk out of the house though, and yet more has been carefully filed away on shelves or under my desk. The bedroom is looking a lot better, and after a slightly panicky incident involving the discovery of mouse droppings behind S’s wardrobe, her bedroom is positively spotless (if you don’t look at the teetering pile of toys on her bed).
Goals for March
Earn More Money – My plan is to bring more cash through the door than I did in February; either by securing new clients or increasing the work I do for existing clients.
Maintain The Blog Pace – You may have noticed I’ve been somewhat prolific with this blog so far this year. I’ve been averaging about 16 posts a week this year. I’ve no idea what happened to me over the new year, but for some reason I suddenly have all this stuff I want to post about, linkys I want to join in with, stuff I want to say. I’m amazed I’ve already published so many posts this year, but I’d like to be able to continue it!
Sort The Living Room! – I am frankly sick of the room being so cramped. This is a beautiful flat, newly decorated before we moved in. The problem is that the house we lived in before this was about twice the size – and it was full to bursting with crap. We moved quickly, and I didn’t have the time to go through and chuck all of the stuff that we never should have moved with. I need to do that now. There is no reason I can’t clear the living room up and have it looking half decent; there are only two of us living here, and one of us is too small tomake too much mess that can’t just be shoved back into the toy box at bed time.
