Goals for July

Saturday, July 01, 2017

Every month I like to sit down with my Bullet Journal and set myself some goals for the month ahead. I find it is a great way to keep on top of things, and really helps me to focus on the things I want to achieve.

I'm actually really excited for July this year. We've not got much going on aside from a week away camping, so I'm hoping we will be able to slow down and really enjoy the summer together as a family. I'm all about those low-key lazy days at the moment; they really feel so good for the soul!



Something that I made a lot of time for last year was reading, but this year it feels as though I have barely picked up a book. After finally finishing the Lord of the Rings trilogy I'm feeling ready to work my way through my huge pile of unread books. Combined with a good cup of tea (and maybe some sneaky biscuits) reading will be the perfect chance for some "me time" again.


So far this year blogging has taken a little bit of a backseat whilst everything else in my life has taken over. Since Zach stopped napping I have found it really hard to find the time to sit down with the laptop, let alone take photos. This month I want to try and make some time to get back into the swing of things as I really miss the buzz I used to get from writing posts and sharing our lives. I have lots of ideas, so watch this space!


My first two goals are all about doing more, but I also want to make the time to take a break too - maybe I'm asking too much of myself! We're heading away to the New Forest for a week this month, and although camping with a toddler isn't the most relaxing experience, I really want to enjoy the break and embrace life without technology for those seven days.


  1. Great goals! Tea and a book is the ultimate me time for me - I try to do that of an evening as it is a great way to wind down. I look forward to hearing how the camping with a toddler goes; I've been wanting to go camping with Alexander and even at 3 and a half I'm still a bit nervous! Happy July - I hope it proves to be a lovely one for you and your little family.

    1. Thank you lovely! I will let you know how camping goes - hopefully it will be easier than I am imagining! xx
