Wool, Wiltshire and All Manner of Wonderful Things!

17 for 2017- July

What a wonderful month! Mr E had a special birthday, let’s just say he now has a bus pass.

Fortunately for him it was the day before you know what so all the family was there to celebrate.

But what was the effect of all July’s celebrations on my goals for 2017?

17 swims- 3 more this month- total now 11

16 hour long walks- achieved already

15 books from the heap by the bed read and passed on- one more this month- total 13

14 lbs lost- no idea

13 cards made- none this month total stays at 9

12 village posts- Sinnington

total is 4

11 days out- 4 more in Sussex- total is 10, more posts to follow on this.

10 new things tried-well I wore a fascinator to the wedding, never again it kept feeling as if it was falling off. I also completed a course called Medieval life in the times of Richard the third. So that makes 9.

9 knitting/crochet finishes- Achieved already

8 other craft projects- not one

7 sewing projects- still 5, but the pink flamingo skirt is nearly finished.

6 non fiction books- still 5

5 family history questions answered- 2 still

4 sort outs- kitchen cupboards done. That makes the 4

3 interesting finds- still one

2 picnics- this is for you Claire.

At the Weald and Downland Museum in West Sussex. I will share some more pictures from here next week, but here’s the view from our picnic spot and by golly that Rhubarb drink was nice.

So that is one picnic.

1 boat ride- not yet.

0 craft supplies bought, Humph, least said and all that!!

So a little bit here, and a little bit there. The secret for meΒ  is not try to do everything at once, but just keep at it, after all this is meant to be all about Fun this year.

How are you doing with your goals for this year, are you pleased with your progress, what are your tips for staying enthused?

Good luck in August!

  1. I seem to be losing touch with my 17 for 2017 aims – well done for staying on track – looks like such a good month for you and the family. πŸ™‚

  2. You’re ticking your achievements off nicely, I’d fail on miserably on the last one too πŸ™‚

  3. A month to remember this year with those important family celebrations πŸ™‚

  4. Sounds to me as if you’ve almost done it all. With 5 months to go, you’ll easily tick off what’s remaining. Happy birthday to Mr E!

    wow, great progress:-)

  6. Belated Happy birthday to Mr. E, looks like it was a great time had by all! You knocked off so many items, even with the wedding! Well done balancing things out!!!

  7. Happy birthday Mr E!
    I like the idea of picnics being on the list… perhaps I should have done ‘picnics’ instead of ‘Scrabble’!

    • Thank you, how about scrabble or picnics. I love a game of scrabble but Mr E being a much brighter specimen of humanity always beats me roundly.

  8. You keep on keeping on! The family birthday celebration looks delightful!

    • Thank you. It was a nice way to spend the day before the wedding, although finding somewhere at a distance where there was something on the menu that everyone could enjoy was not easy, especially as a month beofre our chosen place introduced a new menu, and Mr E who is fussier than the children didn’t like anything on the new one. Still the new place came up trumps.

  9. Looking good Cathy – the numbers are coming down (going up ?) slowly but surely. Note to self I must do more walks, I must do more walks!

    • Yes I tried that approach and it didn’t wotk, I found the only thing to do was to schedule them into a week just like an appointment, with of course due regard to the weather forecast.
