Goals For March

Where did February go? We seemed to jump straight from Valentine’s to Fastelavn and that was it February was gone. I don’t know about anyone else but 2022 has taken a little while to get going properly. I have this “Got to be Productive” drive and sit down and write a list and then my get up and go runs off and I realise I’ve done nothing I set out to do – or did stuff but nothing from my list… so it’s time for my goals for March – hopefully, I can get some of them done! (Especially with Rex starting Vuggestue, maybe I’ll be able to focus more right?)

So this is where the goals come in, just some things that I want to achieve in March.

  • Complete the test crochet for The Pigeon’s Nest

If you follow me on Instagram you will have seen me sharing posts and stories of the Yes You Cardi-Can test crochet and the designing/creating stages from Mrs P. I was selected as one of her “Test Team” and so I’ve been working on that around other bits and bobs. Last night I realised that the yarn I purchased from Hobbii DK had come in 50g balls not 100g balls like I thought so I will be off to order some more. Also trying to decide whether I add in some more colour or some more white to break up the colours a bit more. (I’m also planning on making a second that is one colour so that it goes with more things!)

  • Catch Up on Reading

At the beginning of 2022, I shared my Twelve Months, Twelve Reads, Twelve Friends list. I got delayed getting started which is why we’re in March and I haven’t read any of them yet. Once I finished City of Bones (First book in our Cassandra Clare/Shadowhunters Buddy Read), I started The House in the Cerulean Sea by T. J. Klune. This took a little while to get into and in the end, I took too long from when I borrowed it and the Libby app automatically returned it. So that’s paused at 23% until I can borrow it again. In the meantime, I’ve moved onto Year One by Nora Roberts and hope to finish it soon. (EDIT: When I finally finish this blog post and hit publish it’s actually the 9th and I have already finished this. I’ve taken a few days off as I’ve been trying to focus on other things and get in more sleep as I’ve had a cold).

  • Take Part in #MarchMeetTheMaker

I often set about trying to complete these one-a-day type challenges and often fail. This time I’m really going to work on it and try to keep up. I’ve got the list, I’ve got some ideas – hopefully, I can make it happen. You can follow over on Instagram at HannahJPlans. You can also follow the hashtag here and see what others post too.

  • Plan Blanket

Someone we know is going through a really rough patch at the moment and commented that they could really do with a decent blanket. So, once I’ve finished the YesYouCardiCan then I’ll be starting a blanket for the lovely person.

  • Take a Solo Flight

I guess technically in a way, my first solo flight was back in October but I had boys with me so I think of that as my first “as the only adult” flight lol. This time it’ll be me, by myself. Also because of how early my flight is that day, I’ll be solo travelling as soon as I leave the apartment. But it’ll be very exciting because my parents will be on the other side of the arrivals door and I haven’t seen them since Christmas when they came to visit for New Year.
