Monthly Goals – October

Monthly Goals(1)

I decided at the beginning of the year that I would not make any Resolutions or yearly goals but, rather, make monthly ones that were more easily attainable, you can find all my Monthly Goalposts here.

Today I am looking at the goals I set myself last month and whether I achieved them and setting myself goals for October.

Here are last month’s goals and whether I managed them!

Blog and Social Media

  • Plan something to mark my blog turning 1.  Having my blog turn 1 was a huge deal for me and I decided to host a giveaway to celebrate.  If you have not yet checked it out, here’s the link!
  • Prepare for Blogtober.  Blogtober is now underway and I m taking part so it’s safe to say that this goal has been achieved!


  • Sort Summer and Winter clothes.  I made a start, then the weather turned warm again, then it went cold, then it rained but was warm, now it’s cold again…I have washed all of my summer clothes though and have moved some of my summer dresses and, really obviously, summer things to storage.  Some things, like vest tops, will stay in circulation in the winter months.  I’d say this goal is 90% achieved.
  • End of Summer house deep clean.  Yep, this DID NOT happen…my shoulder is still bad and doing anything more than wiping surfaces over and washing up is super painful.  Maybe this month?

Arts, Crafts, Hobbies and Interests

  • Start ties project.  I have made a start, I have made some measurements and done some calculations and am nearly ready to start the actual making process, so I’d say this is a 50-50 achievement!
  • Learn graphics software.  I underestimated how difficult it can be to learn a new software from scratch but I have been learning and have made some progress but I have a heck of a way to go in becoming proficient in it!  This is going to be an ongoing goal!


  • Read another book.  I don’t really know what happened with my reading this month but I still have yet to finish the book I am currently reading.  This goal was a fail for me.
  • Catch up on reading blogs I follow.  I caught up on the blogs I follow but am now behind again.  The new method I am using to keep track of blogs I follow is working though.
  • Make an appointment to see the doctor.  I saw the dr the other week and now have an appointment on Monday for physiotherapy on my shoulder.  I’m hoping that will sort it out and relieve some of the pain.
  • Start planning Christmas gifts.  I have made a Christmas present list for everyone I need to buy for and listed the gifts I want to get or make for them so this is another goal achieved!

In all I am pretty pleased with how my September goals panned out and that I managed to achieve most things this month!  I hope that I can achieve all of my October goals now!

  1. Goals for October…hmmms

    1) not fall for unavailable guys or guys who are the worst type for me and it will never work out.
    2) go an entire week without needing any type of medicine
    3) blog more
    4) don’t get into an argument with my mom over Thanksgiving

    Pretty solid and I’m sure I will break every single one lol

      1. It is! The shops don’t help though, I’ve seen Christmas things on sale since the kids went back to school in September! It’s weird wandering around shops and seeing back to school stuff jumbled in with Christmas stuff and Halloween things! Xxx
