It's that time again where I look to the new year and wonder what I'd really like to achieve. It never really differs much from year to year which I don't think says anything good about my ability to complete goals but I enjoy writing a good list so I'm doing it again this year.

  • Let's not pretend that this isn't my primary aim for the year: have a successful pregnancy.
  • Complete another 12 month date challenge like last year.
  • Explore more new places.
  • Fix all the little things around the flat that need fixing and re-paint the spare room.
  • After a complete failure with blogging last year after unforeseen circumstances got the better of me I hope to be able to keep up with my schedule of two blog posts a week.
  • I'd love for Dib-Dab-Debs to reach 200 followers.
  • I'd love for my other blog, Jack Russells & Rainbows, about trying to conceive to reach 50 followers.
  • Improve my photography. I'd love a DSLR so I could use all the settings properly but I can't afford that so I'm just going to have to strive for great photos on my little point and shoot!
  • I want to write a second novel although I only have a very rough outline of what I want it to be about. It definitely needs work, and lots of it.
  • Find that "writing voice" again.

  • See more ice hockey, American football and rugby.
  • After the failure of my reading target in 2015 (I aimed for 30 but only managed 15!) I have set a more modest target of 20 books. My GOODREADS just in case you are interested. Also, give me some recommendations!
  • Get a bit more crafty this year.
  • Re teach myself to knit and actually knit something. Anything. Perhaps a blanket?
What are your hopes and ambitions for this year?

  1. All sounds like awesome ambitions! I've still not decided on my goals for the year, there are lots of buts I want to do a bit of soul searching first! x

  2. I like these goals! My main goal is to really push my blogging this year, I don't know why, and I probably will only do a half hearted effort at it, but I really feel like doing that this year.

  3. Learning to knit (again) is on my list of to do's too. Eventually I'll get my head around it!
