4 / 12 Update

I sort of feel like I've caught up finally.

Sort of.

The mom cat came for a visit which threw me out of my routine and then I had to prepare for the husband cat to be in the Falklands for the next two months. Also, I'm registered with the NMC (woop woop).

But enough of the life update. Here is the goal update... slow start?

1) Complete the A to Z Challenge
Two days left! I've watched all the movies and written the last post. Time to start visiting other blogs en masse (a little late I know, but I wouldn't be me if I didn't keep procrastinating somewhere in my life...).

A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z 

2) UK Driver's License
When I started this post I had only picked up the form. I'm now on my way to a "provisional license".

3) Novel Outline for Hashtag Kissing Katie.
Yeah... that hasn't happened yet.

4) Run twice a week.
So, a couple weeks ago I was being all dramatic about having to be on crutches and not being to run etc etc. I'm not crutches following my specialist appointment (huzzah) and after a two week TKD break, adding various stretches, and adding other leg strengthening exercises, I have permission to start a walk to run programme next week (double huzzah).

I try not to bore people with whining, but I think it's healthy to indulge in fifteen minutes of self-pity every now and again. Only as long as you can snap yourself out it.

You'll know when it happens again.

5) Take a Multivitamin daily.
It hasn't been daily but certainly more consistent Monday to Friday. Massive improvement.

6) Do my TKD blue belt grading.
Due to the issues surrounding 4), I've had to take a bit of a break. This may or may not affect my decision to do my grading in this set of goals. I still have two months: anything can happen.

7) Post five chapters of #KK
I still have two months: anything can happen.

8) See Tegan and Sara in Manchester, June 8
It's London instead of Manchester and it's the 11th instead of the 8th. But I'm still going to see them!


9) Visit four more English Heritage sites. 
While my mom was visiting we did more day trips in Southern England and visited two English Heritage sites and two associated sites. I'll blog about them shortly, but in chronological order we visited: Farnham Castle Keep, Silchester Roman Amphitheater & Walls, Roman Baths in Bath, and the Fashion Museum in Bath. Two down, two to go.

10) Read two more books.
Finished reading "Emma" by Jane Austen. Started reading "Northanger Abbey" by Jane Austen. The former was a pleasant read, that latter is becoming a bit painful...

11) Two more chapters for Elisa's Thoughts.
I still have two months: anything can happen.

12) Goodreads widget for my blog. 


  1. Whoo hoo! We're down to the last two letters...it's been fun following your movie journey..the good and the bad :)

    Sounds like you have a lot going on over there, so best of luck with it all.

    1. It's been an interesting journey for sure , but I've enjoyed your A to Z comic characters equally. :)
