So I have 14 goals completed and 11 to go – some are easier than others, some might have to wait until April (It’s far too cold to cycle to Sandy and back at the moment!) I want to write a new list for next year but I’m not sure what to do – I want the challenges to be actual challenges rather than “do this” or “do that” goals as some of mine were too easy this year.

Have you written a list of goals for this year? Or between birthdays?

I read quite a few blogs and a few lists have appeared this week as people celebrate their birthdays. Becca D wrote one this week after being inspired by Elise Blaha Cripe back in December when she celebrated her birthday, Becca S and Mandy‘s have both appeared this week as they celebrate their birthdays (either last week or this week). So Happy Birthday ladies!!
