The year is zipping by, isn’t it?! I can’t believe we’re almost into August already. The children are off school, the sun has been shining for an age and it’s been a good year for my family so far. Being self-employed can mean that family time falls by the wayside, as I get busy with work. By creating a 2018 bucket list I have been hoping to find myself accountable. Today I want to share with you my second update, so you can see what we’ve achieved so far.
Here is a reminder of our 2018 bucket list at the beginning of the year:
AD. I work from home. As such I need a little space where I can work each day, and be motivated. Today I want to talk to you not only about my own workspace but what to consider when setting up a home office. Organisation is one of the most important things but I think that there are several other factors to consider in having the perfect home office environment.
2016 was a rough year for us, so I decided to work to ensure that 2017 was better. It paid off and we have had a lovely year! We created a 2017 bucket list and it was our first ever bucket list together. Someone sent me a rude message last year, to let me know that the term ‘bucket list’ should only be used by people on their deathbed. I deleted it, as I’ve no time for negativity, or being told what to do and decided to start writing one every year. Anyone of us could die at any time, and life is too short to spend all of your time thinking ‘one day’ to things that you want to do. By creating our 2018 bucket list we are going to have lots of fun activities to look forward to. Anyway, here is a look at our 2018 bucket list!
Well another year seems to have flown by! Every month I cannot believe another month has passed by and every year I really do feel the same. Life seems to zip by in a myriad of errands! We have had a fantastic year and I’m really happy looking back on our 2017 bucket list. While we have not achieved all of our wishes for 2017 there have been good reasons for some of the failures. Others not so much..! Anyway, here is a final look at our 2017 bucket list!
As you can see from our final look at our 2017 bucket list – we achieved 15/25 items. Not too bad! Especially as this was our first full year as parents and my first year working as a parent too!
Meal planning is something that is really important in our home. Having a meal plan allows us to be prepared for activities, save money, avoid buying takeaways and eat well. Also, as our daughter has lots of allergies it allows us to be prepared and ensure that we can all eat together and avoid relying on convenience foods. Which are often more expensive. This week I’m doing something a little different, and sharing my meal plan for next week with you.
