Monthly Goals – April/May 2018

It’s the 1st of May, time does fly!

April was an odd month, we had weather, I got sunburnt and it was freezing. Health wise I’m a bit more even, I’m tired because I’m always tired but other than that feeling pretty good. April was pretty quiet, there was work and home and not a lot of people. Here’s the recap of the goals…

Mind and Body

  • 10,000 steps a day.
  • Vitamins every day.
  • Feet and Hands.
  • Golden hour

I nailed all of these, go me…

Budget & Spending

  • Stick to the spending budgets for food and household.
  • No card use. Let’s see if I can make this work for April

There was some card use but not a lot so I’m calling these good.

House Beautiful

This is pretty much all repeats of March because I didn’t get it done last month and I didn’t get them done this month either. I failed these so hard!

  • Hoover once a week, my dislike of hoovering is well known, so I need to make it a weekly habit.
  • Sort out underbed storage
  • Clean oven
  • Defrost fridge
  • Curtains in the bedroom

Allotment  (still the longest list!)

  • bonfire
  • sowing seeds indoors (summer and winter squash, cucumbers etc)
  • start sowing seeds outdoors (beetroot, carrots, radishes, peas, salad, herbs)
  • sowing flowers in various places around the plot
  • greenhouse – we’ve decided not to have one this year!
  • sort out the section at the top of the plot where the squash are going
  • compost
  • finish planting the potatoes
  • another coat of paint on the shed

I’m calling that a good allotment month!

Year so far

Reading – The TBR list on the Kindle stands at 93 and the physical pile of books is at 32.

Household budget – I started with £52.00 and ended with £43.75. So I have £83.75 for May, and I’ll really need spend that because I’ve run out of everything…

Food Budget – I had £5.26 left over which went in the jar.

Saving – The jar now contains £111.44

May Goals

Hopefully the weather is going to cheer up this month. There will be lots of allotment work this month and we have two bank holidays. I’m going for calm and consistent as the theme of this month. I want to plan the weeks more effectively and spent less time noodling about on the computer and social media and more time doing things that I need to do and reading…
