Things to do in 2015…

I spend a lot of time thinking about writing goals, but I very rarely consider making personal ones. So today, I’m going to think about what I’d like to change in my personal life. They won’t be huge, because I quite like my life the way it is, so I’m not looking to make any major changes. Instead, I shall come up with five smallish things I’d like to achieve. So here goes…


1. I occasionally go running. I’m not very good, but I enjoy it. The problem is, I live on a mountain and I’m crap at running uphill. My favorite route has this one long uphill stretch. At the moment I have to stop twice to recuperate. So I’d like to improve my fitness levels so I can run all the way!

2. Train Grunt. Grunt is my BAD dog. OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI love him dearly, but he’s bred for hunting and he likes chasing anything that moves, cars, bicycles, goats… So this year, we’re going to do some serious training. I want him to be able to sit at the end of the drive while the shepherd goes past and not spontaneously combust.

3. Get a sun tan. Frivolous, I know, but last year, for most of the summer, I wasn’t allowed near the pool and was banned from sunbathing. So this year I plan to take in a few rays, preferably while floating on the pool, reading a book, and drinking a frothy cocktail!

Gencie flirting4. More horse riding. Last year we didn’t do much at all. This year I plan to get out more. I’ve already committed to doing a 20km ride in February so we have a few weeks to build up to it.

5. And finally, try not to fret about things I can’t change.


So do you have any personal goals this year?
