projects progress: august

SICK! and TOO MUCH WORK! were the watchwords for August.

  1. film: one new film per fortnight (REVISED: on the GiantTelevision)
    NOT ACHIEVED: again

  2. foodz: one new recipe per week
    NOT ACHIEVED: again. But mostly kept up with the the year of dinners page.

  3. da ‘hood: explore the neighbourhood once per month
    NOT ACHIEVED: again.

  4. paint: 6 months to paint the interior of ThePalace(OfLove)
    PROJECT: FAIL. SO MUCH FAIL. I did start back on the trim in the bedroom today – though we’re now in September, I’m now counting any painting as a win!

  5. teev: watch something each week from the ridiculously extensive stash of video media
    PARTIALLY ACHIEVED: We’re part-way through Season 2 of Breaking Bad – there is a lot of catching-up to do!

  6. projects: complete one project from my dabbler email per month finish all of those things I started or abandon them.
    NOT ACHIEVED: again.

  7. learnin: (a) commence my manageress diploma (+ no dallying re assignments) – updated to include (b) be a better manageress.
    PARTIALLY ACHIEVED: (a) completed face to face days! Now for those assessments (I’ve about 6 weeks until I need to have the first handed in).
    ACHIEVED: (b) Another performance discussion with Vern-Percy – very soul destroying process, why is it so hard for people not to be dicks?

  8. exercise: twice a week. incidental exercise does not count
    NOT ACHIEVED: First time I have not achieved. Illness put paid to the city2surf which was a little misery-making. And I appear to have pulled a muscle in my right foot (ether that or it is plantar fasciitis – please no!) so am only managing two 5km runs on the weekends with a fair bit of tightness and not a little pain afterward. Sitting here typing rolling a tennis ball under my arch – owwww!.

  9. thing: find my thing (the least SMART of all the projects)
    I’ve had barely enough time to think

  10. sobriety: a dry (at least) January

Insane month: too much sick, too much work (it felt like every waking hour was spent working – probably because it was). The worst seems to be over and spring is here!
