April goals

Save 20 per cent of my income. Done, with the additional help of some invoices which came in!

Try one new (to me) dinner recipe each week. I think this goal has completely fallen by the wayside. T is back on cooking duties. He usually manages to whip up at least one dish with a new twist, however.

Run once a week. Oy. I think I missed one run this month. Laziness + bad weather and crazy rain = demotivation.

Make an upwards career move. Day job going well. Covered for a weekday shift this week, which was good for my profile. Usually I’m stuck in more of a support role during the week, while taking the reins during my weekend shifts. But staff shortages saw me called in to man the ship, which was exciting. Side job chugging along.

Donate to charity. I contributed to the Red Cross cyclone fund, in wake of the Pacific Island storms. (And we put a coupla coins down charitable wishing well…the kind you get outside supermarkets and whatnot.)

I also managed to accomplish my April goal of baking something new every week – chocolate slice, raspberry slice, peanut cookies and scones (okay, so the latter was a bit of a failure, but still exceedingly tasty with cream and jam).

    Sounds like you did a pretty good job of keeping up! That’s awesome. I hope I maintain the motivation for my goals!

    I just noticed… all your baking are all desserts! 😀
