November Goals

I have a bit of a love-hate relationship with goals posts (there's a football joke in there somewhere), I love writing them to feel productive and see for the months ahead what I want to achieve, but I must admit I do find it hard to follow up, take stock and see what I have achieved.

I last wrote a goals post in June, I set myself three goals and it seems that I have half completed each one! I am going to pick some goals that compliment this post, whilst also setting myself some new challenges.

With that in mind, here are my goals for November;

1. Get my photos developed. 

I completed this half of one of my June goals, yet actually getting to a developer and seeing my photos is still eluding me at the moment. So before the end of November, I will have been and got them developed and uploaded the best onto heytheredewdrop!

2. Put my table up. 

In June, I tasked myself with creating something myself for my new house. Whilst I have everything, I made the table top by hand and purchased the legs I want to attach, we realised that as I am currently living with my parents who have all their own furniture, there is no room for my table. I should have moved in by the end of November and the first thing that is happening? My table is going up.

3. Jog more. 

I have got back into jogging a little bit, but at the moment with the amount of travelling I am doing, I am only averaging once a week and would love to get this number up a bit.

4. Drink more water. 

My skin is prone to dryness, dehydration and moderate eczema. Alongside this I definitely do not drink enough to keep myself hydrated. I have had a couple of bouts of bad eczema recently so I am going to up my water intake to see if it makes a different to my skin. And to my health generally.

5. Embrace autumn/winter fully. 

Now that my boyfriend's birthday (Halloween) is out the way, I am going to embrace Christmas fully and try and make the festive period last as long as people will let me.

6. Read, read, read! 

Dark nights and a fire both lead themselves to reading. I have let reading fall by the wayside recently with travel/family commitments/work, so being in my own house will mean that I can carve out some evening time to sit down with a book.

What are your goals? x


  1. Your lil' corner of the interweb is lovely indeed, and it's so nice to hear about how others get on with their goals, big or small. Keep going! I'm feeling so positive about what can be achieved between now and the end of the year, hoping to spread that feeling to others! :)


    1. Yay! Thank you for the positivity! I am determined, I know 2016 has been rough but we can end strong!
