My goals for week commencing 18th June 2018: how did I do?

You may have seen that I set goals for myself at the beginning of the week. I am not planning on doing this every week, rather monthly instead, but I wanted to start off with some tough goals for my first week of blogging to get me kicked off. Well, it’s now Sunday so let’s see how I got on with my goals…


Spend no more than £10 (excluding absolute essentials i.e. mortgage, utilities, petrol)
Complete, total fail on this one! I spent about £19. We went on an impromptu trip to soft play on Friday, which cost us £7 (sometimes it’s hard to say no when a friend invites you… maybe next time I will suggest a free play date at home instead?), plus the kids have been eating loads of fruit this week (not that I’m complaining, beats Pombears…) which has meant two trips to the local corner shop for fruit top-ups. I’m not too disappointed, it was a tough target and I have still spent way less than usual.


Drink no wine
Oops, fail again! My husband got a bottle of wine at a raffle at work so we drank it on Friday (Friday seems to be my danger day for all my bad habits!). Oh dear, this isn’t going well…

Lose 4lbs
Hurrah – I did it – just!


Take the kids on a (free) day out
Tick! We went to Malleny Gardens, which is a National Trust for Scotland property, on Saturday. As we are members, we got in for free. I brought along a picnic too, and we had a great time running around for 90 minutes or so. We were the only ones there the whole time. I love our NTS membership, we will definite renew it when the time comes.
