2014: Resolutions

Last year I started making resolutions and that is something I’m going to continue.

This year, my resolutions are:

  • Take LP Swimming: We took LP swimming for the second time in her life when we went to Wales in November. LP loved it! This year we are going to aim to take LP swimming at least once a month – I know it isn’t very often but it’s a starting point.
  • Dave and I to have date nights: Before kids we had date nights once a month, we’d go out, have a meal, see a movie and it was great. LP came along and we started having date nights at home – movie, take away. It was lovely. Then LM came along and we haven’t really had any quality time together since! One night a month I would like to get a takeaway, watch a movie or play board games, have a glass of wine and relax together.
  • Stop ‘Googling’ people: I have a habit of looking up people that are no longer part of my life – on Facebook, on Google. Just seeing what they’re up to – if anything at all. I’ve googled my Mum a couple of times, no idea why. I also look up old friends on Facebook every so often. I guess I do this because part of me still cares. These people are not part of my life anymore and haven’t been for quite some time. They no longer deserve any of my head space so I will not be ‘googling’ anyone from now on.
  • To celebrate my Birthday: On 10th October 2014 I turn 30. I never celebrate my Birthday. I’ve never had a Birthday Party (I don’t want to start now either!) and I never really make a fuss of it. This year I would like to do something special. Maybe two things actually. I’d love for Dave and I to go out for the evening, minus the children. We haven’t done that in our whole time as parents so it would be a novelty. I’d also love to get all my amazing girly friends together and have a champagne afternoon tea or something. Somewhere we can relax, have a drink, eat cake and where I can really appreciate the friends I have in my life – they’re great!

I’ve stopped at 4. I thought of many many more but they weren’t achievable. I like to have realistic goals in life!

Are you making resolutions? What are they? Do you think you’ll keep them?

  • Donna Wishart

    Donna Wishart is married to Dave and they have two children, Athena (12) and Troy (11). They live in Surrey with their two cats, Fred and George. Once a Bank Manager, Donna has been writing about everything from family finance to days out, travel and her favourite recipes since 2012. Donna is happiest either exploring somewhere new, with her camera in her hand and family by her side or snuggled up with a cat on her lap, reading a book and enjoying a nice cup of tea. She firmly believes that tea and cake can fix most things.

  1. Your third resolution really struck a chord with me. This is something I am guilty of too, and you’re right – it is a drain in time and emotions for no obvious benefit. I might take a leaf out of your book.

    Good luck with all your resolutions, and I hope 2014 is a good one!
