September. Blimey, 2 thirds of the way through the year already! Doesn’t time fly when you’re having fun!
So before we crack on with my goals for this month, lets have a look at how well I did on the August ones.
- To post twice a week – Yes, and I’m so proud of myself for keeping it up!
- Bake more – no but that’s not necessarily a bad thing!
- Keep the house clean – I’m getting better
- Go outside – well yes but it has been rather rainy on my days off!
- Organise the spare room – Yes – another thing I’m really proud of myself for!
Anyway, moving on….
Upgrade the Large Vivarium
This is the biggest of all my September goals, and possibly the hardest! Fitz has been living in his current vivarium setup for about a year now and it’s starting to look a bit drab. He’s quite the clumsy chameleon and is forever knocking things off and pulling branches about. I also think it would be good for him to have a new set up to explore, he seems to have learnt his little circuit off by heart!
We’re not going to buy a new viv, he already has a massive one. Instead we are just going to rearrange everything so he has some new areas to explore. There is also some maintenance to be done on the equipment so it will be easy to do it all in one go. I will be filming what we do so look out for that in an upcoming post!
Sell My Old Wedding Dresses
Now this sounds a bit dodgy! No, I haven’t been married a thousand times! When we got married in May I went for a more unusual dress and didn’t want to spend a fortune. So I ordered a load online and had about 12 sent to me which I tried on with the help of my bridesmaids. This left me with 11 or so dresses I have never worn, which I think deserve a loving home. There are a few local bridal boot fairs which often run in September so I am looking to sell these dresses then.
Redecorate the Bathroom
This room has been crying out for some TLC for aaaages now! it’s getting to a point where I am embarrassed to let anyone go in there for a pee. I have a design in my head with the help of Pinterest (you can check out my board here) and my creative talents! So we shall be taking a trip to the local hardware shop to get some paint and other bits. I want my bathroom to be a haven where I can relax and destress. It WILL happen by the end of the month!
Start Filming Again
You may have noticed I haven’t posted a video on the website for some time. This has been deliberate because I have been focussing my efforts on my writing and getting into a routine with uploading content in this format. Now that I am confident I have got this nailed, I am keen to start filming again. I love making videos as much as I do writing. There are some things I cannot communicate as well with the written word. Plus, I am starting to get withdrawal symptoms and the ideas list is getting longer!
Enjoy the last of the Sun
I know I go on and on about how much I love Autumn and the colder months, but it’s gonna be cold for a long time! We have had an absolutely awesome summer this year. With temperature well above 30 degrees some days, we couldn’t ask for more! I am desperately hoping we have an Indian summer and if we do I am going to take every opportunity to soak in the late, hazy warmth. So for the last of my September goals I will enjoy every last minute of it so that when it does get cold I can think back to those warm summer evenings. Bliss!
So there you have it. Keep you fingers crossed for me, I seem to be doing better and better each month! I would love to hear what your September goals are, let me know in the comments.
