So, a week ago, I resolved to take things slowly this year and not try to commit to too much all at once.
Well it worked – kinda!
I missed one night shining my sink. I don’t think that’s too bad? Unfortunately it was the one night when it would have been really useful – the night before my return to work after 3 weeks off for Christmas. But I was feeling a little “Sunday night sad” (anyone else get that?) despite being a Tuesday. And then the dishwasher broke…
So I’m going to chalk that one up as a success.
But it’s week 2 of Change 1.
So in a bid to get organised, I’ll keep shining my sink, but I’ll also start menu planning. We spend too much money on our food shopping, and too much time debating what to eat. I also end up “picking” and not really eating properly on my days at home, so I need to think about lunches too, for both Moo and I. Over the weekend, I’m going to work out a meal plan for the next week, as well as trying to make a list of the kinds of things we like to eat, to make meal planning in future weeks earlier.
Then on Monday I’ll do the weekly shop as useful, but hopefully it will cost us a little bit less. And to make it a little more exciting, I have also bought myself a trolley dolly to save me having to lug around all those big hessian bags to do the shopping – very much looking forward to trying it out for the big shop on Monday!
Let’s see how it goes! I’ll check in again next week.
