Another 7 Things!

So it would appear that Louise hadn't quite expected the response she got to her interactive '7 Things' challenge!  Clearly we all loved it and I am going to have another crack and state another 7 Things I intend to do over the coming week or so (realistically it will start on Thursday as I am not back from my Granny's until then).

Just to clarify, this is the beautiful Louise - if only I looked like that!! 

So, in no particular order, my seven things are as follows...

Correspond :: It might sound old fashioned and it may be boring but there are certain things I've just gotta' do! I love writing letters but I must admit that actually sitting down with my pen and paper seems to take more effort than I'm pleased to admit.  But this week will see change and I'll write those letters, buy those ridiculously expensive stamps, and pop the envelopes sealed with love into the post box!

Create :: I've utterly neglected my art for a shameless length of time, but I think I'd enjoy it, so I really would like to dust of my paints and have a crack at it - see if my brain still knows what to do! I'd also like to cook more, even if they are naughty highly calorific goodies!

Blog :: I've been doing better than I anticipated at blogging while I'm caring for my Granny but I really don't want to let it slide, so from Thursday to Thursday I plan to blog every day!!

Look after myself :: I'm very good at looking after other people, but not so good at repaying the favour to myself so I intend to properly look after myself.

Do :: There are a lot of boring tasks that I have let slip away from me, so this week I intend to sort my room out properly (Makeup that includes you!) and tackle the growing monster that is the ironing pile! 

Exercise :: I'm not talking about becoming an Olympian (although why I wasn't picked for the swimming or gymnastics teams is beyond me) but I just need to get physical and begin the long long long long loooonnnngggg road to getting my body looking the way it used to!

Enjoy :: I've just found out one of my best friends is coming home next weekend and I can't wait to bask in her company! 

Do you have any goals for the coming week, month or year?



  1. Love your seven things. I think mine are also very similar, especially the exercise bit! Having Winter in Australia makes it that much harder to get to the gym! Love your blog Alice x

    1. Thank you so much, I've just read quite a few of your posts on your blog and I love it, I'm now following it!


  2. Most of my goals would probably be the same as well! Especially 'Do' and 'Create' and 'Exercise'. I found I'm just stuck in a bit of a summer holiday rut of not doing much, so need to get my butt into action. Just found your blog and love it, so am following! :) Nx

    1. Aww thank you, I'll go and have a look at your blog now - I love finding new blogs to read!!


  3. Ahh, I am SO RUBBISH at sticking to the little goals I have set myself. Well, not all of them, but there are one or two that look like they qre going to keep reappearing on my list for the rest of they year as I still haven't done them!
    What have you got in mind in terms of looking after yourself, a spot of pampering maybe?
    Aw, hope you're granny is ok.

    1. Don't worry Mel, I think exercise is going to keep reappearing on my list for a long long long time, I just can't seem to motivate myself and I'm so unfit I feel as though I've really got myself in a bit of a deep rut!!
      Yes, I think I'm going to have a bit of a pamper, and even give myself some time to think about my own life and deconstruct it a bit rather than just focussing on everyone else - crikey that good a bit deep all of a sudden!!
      My granny is hilarious and hard work, but that's Alzheimers for you!

      I hope you're well Mel
