Bullet Journal // Week One

A full week into 2018 and I've managed to eat healthy, drink lots of water and loose 7lbs. I think that weight is from constantly needing a wee with all the extra water I've been drinking. I work with cakes surrounding me all day long and it is living nightmare if you want to diet when a freshly baked cake looking fabulous comes past you. My willpower is holding strong for the first week.

I've kept to using my bullet journal for little things this week and it's been nice to sit back in the evening and doodle. I've got a little list of all the things that I would like to have a try at in my bullet journal to help with creativity and learning new skills, and there's just so much inspiration across Pinterest and Instagram, it's really gotten me wanting to improve myself.

It's been nice returning to normality in a way after having the Christmas holidays where no one knew what day it was and everything merged into each other. The girls both loved being back at school again as they began to miss their friends and I've enjoyed being back at work again and talking to people about their New Year's and Christmas holidays.

I've even managed to improve my latte art skills too a little bit. I've only mastered doing a heart but baby steps.

How has your first week been?

Goals for 2018

Happy New Year!!! I have become that typical blogger that reappears at the beginning of a new year just to disappear again. Not this time! I will kick myself in a couple of months when I have done exactly that. 2017 went by so fast and I am glad it is in the past and that I'm ready to move on and to strife to be a better version of myself as the year goes on.

It's a small list. It's an easy one. It's an achievable one which I know I can work towards.

Craft More
I miss crafting and it's one of the things I really want to make time for this year and get back into doing something I really love.

Go On Holiday/Travel
I've not been on a holiday for 4 years and I would love to take the girls away somewhere for a bit of family time. Same as travelling, I would like to see more of what's around me and where I live.

Read More
I sucked reading last year, I brought so many books from charity shops but just didnt get around to reading them so at least I have enough to get me started!

Save More
Trying to be a responsible adult. Even opened my savings account this morning so go me!

Turns out I'm a bad hoarder and really need to stop basically. I have so many things that are just there for emotional reasons that I need to let go off because it is just wasted space. Same with buying things because I think I need them when I just want it.

Be Healthier
Eating a lot better, less takeaways and sorting out my mental health as it takes a beating some days.

I wish you all the best for 2018 and that it is filled with happiness, unicorns and all the things that make you happy!

You know what I love more than housework? Crafts that involve me using housework items such as an iron as a part of it. Obviously I'm joking. I hate the iron, but we gotta do these things for the kids we love. So for a little bit of afternoon crafts over half term, I suggested (yup, it was even my idea) to the girls that we get out the perler beads, or hama beads, I never know which one it's meant to be called.

There were no accidents. No spillages of a tub of beads across the floor. And no arguments over who used what. It was a really nice afternoon we had just sat making little bits of perler art. We had to take the geeky side to it all being a nerdy family so I got some Pokemon, Zelda bits going and a little Calcifer too.

I remember doing these with my mum when I was younger and her hating to get the iron out to them too. It was mainly a ton of multicoloured hearts that we'd give her to iron for us though. I wonder if these things will be around when my girls are all grown up to do with their children. Though, let's not give me Grandma status yet... for a long time.
