March 31, 2020

The past month certainly hasn’t turned out the way that I imagined it would, I don’t think it did for anyone. Plans, activities and general life have all been rejigged, rearranged and even postponed. Routines and schedules have gone out of the window and replaced by a new normal. Whilst this has been an upheaval, it is important that I continue to look towards the future and continue setting goals and plans.

How did I get on with last months goals?

My plans for March were all focused on my blog. Ensuring that things were ticking over as well as focusing on making improvements. So how did those plans go?

  • SEO assessment – Unfortunately, due to the current pandemic this has been put on hold. With the children home, for the time being, I’m limited on how much of the action plan I’d be able to put into practice so opted to postpone.
  • Blog branding – Another task that has been postponed. Both from a time factor but also a lack of inspiration. I really need to do some research into fonts, designs etc. to see what I like best and will fit with the style I’m aiming for.
  • Instagram – love or hate? – I’d love to say that I have rediscovered a love for the platform. However, I’ve spent even less time on it over the past month. I’m trying to stay away from social media as much as I can as I’m overwhelmed by the COVID-19 news and stories.

My plans and goals for April

A piece of paper


With the children off school for an extended period of time (possibly until September). I really need to get my head around homeschooling. Whilst the schools have given us worksheets and schedules to follow. I need to look at the resources we have available and set each of the children challenges and goals each week.

Garden bucket list

Our garden is a functional space in so much as it is a lawned garden with some things for the children to play with. However, I’d really like to make it a more inviting space. As well as updating our garden storage.


The end of the financial year is just days away. This year I need to be on the ball and submit my tax return as soon as possible. As well as look at our household expenses. With my work slowing down due to the end of the financial year and the Coronavirus outbreak. Now is as good as time as any to ensure we are making savings where possible.

    I hear you! So many things to do in one day and with the kids home and having to homeschool them? It’s impossible to get through everything.

  • MELANIE EDJOURIAN May 25, 2020 at 6:06 pm

    I’m having the same problem. It’s hard to do some of the work you’d like to with the kids home. Setting the kids challenges each week sounds like a good idea to get some work done.

    These are some great goals. Did you manage to achieve all of them?

  • Ashlee May 25, 2020 at 7:51 pm

    I hear you with this! The pandemic shook alot of things up for me and I had to pivot, because none of us were ready for what it all meant lol. Slowly getting back to my goals and being open to what speaks to you.

    I find myself less on social media as it gets me down either due to COVID related news, I am also spending more time in the garden with my family whenever homeschooling gets too overwhelming for me

    I love that you publicize your monthly goals. Do you find that it makes you more accountable?

  • Melanie williams May 26, 2020 at 12:02 pm

    Always good to get the goals and ideas down in writing for sure. I love how you share yours…fab stuff xx

  • Talya Stone May 26, 2020 at 4:07 pm

    So many things going on right now! It’s good to get everything down when there are so many plates to spin at the moment. I feel like we are heading for a homeschool slide here.

  • Catherine May 26, 2020 at 5:06 pm

    It’s definitely a crazy time out there especially for families. I think writing out your goals is a great way to keep track. Just check off one thing at a time…don’t overwhelm yourself!

    What a cool series!
    I’ll be visiting you more often:)

    It sounds like you have some great goals. I would love to start a garden again someday and grow some trees.

  • Jay Aguirre May 27, 2020 at 6:10 am

    It’s so important to set actionable and measurable goals! I definitely need to start my own goal setting regimen to help me measure my actions!
