March update for the 2018 52-in-52 list

I didn’t do as well as previous months this month in ticking off completed items – in fact I only completed 2 for the month. But I’ve made progress towards some of the bigger ticket items – the ones that need to be continuously worked on.

There’s 35 items remaining to go.

Let’s take a look.

Completed:

Go camping

I haven’t had time to write a post on this yet, but we went camping with the little one and some friends. We had a great time, and can’t wait to go again! It was our first trip with our new camping trailer and uh, let’s just it was a toss up between being glad we were only gone for a night, and wishing we could stay longer. [...]  read more

52 reasons why I love my husband

You guys, I’m going to state the obvious here.

Babies change relationships.

To be clear, neither of us have any regrets and we’re absolutely in love. But right now our lives are dedicated towards Luca, and not enough towards each other. I’ve let the affection drop, and I need to get that back. We need to prioritise time for each other at the end of the day, and I need to make sure that he knows how much I love and adore him.

This 52 in 52 task couldn’t have come at a better time. The task was to “write a list of 52 reasons why I love and am grateful for my husband”. [...]  read more

February update for the 2018 52-in-52 list

Another productive month this month with some more items to tick off the list! Right now as it stands I’ve completed 15 items, with 37 left to go.

Have a bath

Obviously this wasn’t a challenge for my hygiene; I have a shower every day. Ok, I’ll be totally honest; on rare days I don’t shower, but that’s because I have a young baby and it can be a challenge! But I do shower at least every second day, never longer.

No, this 52 was about taking some time out of the everyday and relaxing in the bath. Time for me. [...]  read more

January update for my 52 list

Nearly one month down for the year already! I’m a broken record when I say how fast time is going, but it really does fly by! I’ve had a good start on my 52 list, which means it’s time for a recap!

Take Luca swimming

I couldn’t wait to get this one done. I have been really looking forward to the little man being old enough to go swimming, and it was everything I hoped for. He loves the bath at home, and he loves showers as well, so I felt relatively certain he’d be OK in a pool. And sure enough, he was. He happily floats around with us, and has even done the odd kick here and there! [...]  read more

2018 edition of 52 things in 52 weeks (52 in 52)

Every year I write a list of 52 things to complete in 52 weeks – the course of a year. This tradition has been going since 2008 – a huge 10 years now!

To explain the 52 in 52, it’s kind of like new year’s resolutions, but instead of making a resolve about a new habit, it’s a list of tasks. The aim is to take time out of every day life to do things that are out of the ordinary. Things like making time for friends and family, and most importantly, myself. It can be fun things, simple things, or necessary things. [...]  read more
