My August Goals Revisited!




Welcome to the first day of Spring! Also, a pinch and a punch for the first day of the month. No returns. Time to revisit my August Goals and let you know how I went.


  • Clear out the entire Linenpress, ready for the Builder ~ NO (but now he doesn't need access through the Linenpress until after he's re-tiled the shower, so it's less of a priority)
  • Go to bed by 11pm Sunday to Thursday nights! ~ NO (sometimes, but not more than half the time)
  • Buy new jeans and long-sleeved tops ~ NO (this is long overdue)
  • First-time watch five movies ~ YES! 1. Trainwreck 2. Ant-Man 3. John Dies At The End 4. Jack The Giant Slayer 5. Big Hero 6
  • Cook five new dishes from recipes ~ YES! 1. Low Carb Cashew Chicken 2. Sausage and Baby Spinach Pasta 3. Shepherd's Pie with Sweet Potato 4. Baked Potatoes with Bacon, Chives and Tasty Cheese (pictured above) 5. Orange Chicken with Mint and Coriander
  • Find a cat (or any animal that's safe to pat) and pat it! ~ YES! Patted a dog on 10th of August!
  • Walk 5000 FitBit steps every weekday ~ NO (only maybe 30% of the time did I achieve this)
  • Cut and colour my hair ~ NO
  • Compile recipe printouts and cutouts into a folder ~ YES! Hooray!
  • Clear and clean my desk ~ NO


You'll be glad to know I did all the fun things and pretty much avoided all the un-fun stuff! I planned on clearing my desk on the last day of August, but to be honest, I just would've moved everything from my desk to somewhere else, so I'll leave it 'til I have time to actually clean, clear and throw some stuff out. If you want to see more photos of the dishes I cooked, check out Wordless Wednesday: Cooking Up A Storm!

TOTAL - 4/10

I'm going to be very busy this month (if you missed all the shit that's going down, check out A Quick Update!) so I'm not setting any goals for September. I just want to still have my sanity come October 1.

Don't miss a post!

  3. I watched ant man, train wreck and jack the slayer recently (I didn't really like tranwreck and didn't find it particularly funny though..)... I also watched welcome to me (with Kristen wig - not bad, quite a serious movie), project almanc (OK), fantastic 4 (meh), kingsman secret service (meh).. I watched 15 minutes of "Focus" and couldn't stomach it. Next on my list is pixels (even though it looks awful - I am a big old school gamer) and probably... paper towns... maybe....any suggestions?

    1. Welcome To Me with Kristin Wiig is on my Watch List (it's coming to Netflix this month I think?). I've also seen Project Almanac (not bad, I thought) and loved Kingsman. Pixels is meant to be really bad but I think my son would like it as he's so into games. These are old but I love and highly recommend Pulp Fiction, Moulin Rouge, High Fidelity and The Big Hit. Try Punch Drunk Love for an Adam Sandler film that doesn't suck! :)
