projects progress: june

Halfway through the year. Golly.

  1. film: one new film per fortnight (REVISED: on the GiantTelevision)
    ACHIEVED: Have watched more movies in the past month than in the prior 7 years.

  2. foodz: one new recipe per week
    PARTIALLY ACHIEVED: a couple of new things tried – best of which was clay pot pork, you should definitely give it a bash. Also managed to update the the year of dinners page.

  3. da ‘hood: explore the neighbourhood once per month
    NOT REALLY ACHIEVED: Again. Perhaps I need to wait until summer.

  4. paint: 6 months to paint the interior of ThePalace(OfLove)

  5. teev: watch something each week from the ridiculously extensive stash of video media
    NOT ACHIEVED: though we are really good at aquiring *new* things (currently utterly mad for The Great British Bake Off and The Great British Sewing Bee)

  6. projects: complete one project from my dabbler email per month finish all of those things I started or abandon them.
    ACHIEVED: Completed both the table-cloth and the wee pink hat. Must decide on projects for July.

  7. learnin: (a) commence my manageress diploma (+ no dallying re assignments) – updated to include (b) be a better manageress.
    PARTIALLY ACHIEVED: (a) finally! attended the first three days of my intensive course. Assignments seem manageable. Two days more in July and three in August.
    ACHIEVED: (b) organised an excellent and thoughtful divisional gift for Vern-Percy’s new baby

  8. exercise: twice a week. incidental exercise does not count
    ACHIEVED: I feel as though I’m going a little backward. June was not good for running – ill last weekend, assisting Bessie with urgent sewing project the two weekends prior. I managed to get out, but ultimately was all rather dissatisfying.

  9. thing: find my thing (the least SMART of all the projects)

  10. sobriety: a dry (at least) January

June was hard. Loads of work. Loads of SML jerkiness. Glad to start the new (financial) year.

Am considering rationalising these projects, as I spend rather a good deal of time feeling guilty about not making progress on them. Perhaps I need to just relax a little.
