February Goals - 2021

After what felt like an eternity January is finally over! January is a month that typically drags on a bit anyway, but this time thanks to UK lockdown it felt so much longer, and kind of like groundhog day. I’ve felt quite run down for a lot of last month so I’m quite glad to have a long weekend booked for Mike’s birthday later this month – even though we can’t actually do anything!


As usual let’s have a look at how I did with last month’s goals and see how I got on.


Wedding cancelations

It feels a little bitter-sweet to be ticking this one off, but it’s done. Everything we had booked for our wedding in the USA is now cancelled and we’re finally got all of our refunds back. Actually, most of the cancelations and refunds were done pretty quickly, with the only problems being with the photographers who were being pretty awkward about sending us our refund, despite it being in their terms and conditions.  


Decorate the house

We’ve had a few bits arrive and we’re planning to move the house around, but I haven’t really got much done with this…. Let’s just pen this one down as in progress for now!


Buy a wish list plant

I did this! In fact, I went over and above with this one. I added two wish list plants to my collection, a Variegated Syngonium, as well as an Anthurium Silver Blush. The latter of the two I didn’t think I’d be able to get hold of for some time, as they seem to be rarely sold. I even managed to get hold of two, and the other is a gift for my friend for her birthday, as she is also a collector of plants, and this is one that was also on her wish list.


Get back into a running routine

I’ve been a few times, but I don’t think I’d go so far as to say I’m in a routine. Between it being very wet and muddy, and the weather being cold I haven’t gone very much. I have instead been doing Yoga in my living room a few times a week though, so I guess it’s good that I’ve managed to do something. As I mentioned, I’ve been feeling quite run down, so going for a 5k run in the cold has been pretty low on my agenda.


Start getting up earlier

This lasted for about a week and I felt great for it, then it tapered off again, so it is certainly something to be added back to my February goals.



Now that we’ve gone over last month, here are my goals for February!



Get on track with the blog

After doing Blogmas through December, I produced far less content in the month of January. I previously had a fairly good schedule of weekly posting, which worked quite well for me and I’d like to get back to that if I can.


Change my hair colour

For this one I will accept starting the process as a ‘pass’ because it’s likely to take a little time to get from my current colour to my desired one. There’s every chance I won’t be able to get to the colour I have in my head, so we’ll have to see. Getting rid of the red from my hair is the first hurdle.


Be better with my skincare routine

I’m wavering a bit when it comes to my skin care, and being a bit more lax than I should. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not skipping it for days on end, but I used to have a great morning and evening routine that I stuck to religiously and want to get back closer to that.


Pick out paint and wallpaper

We’re having a little shuffle around in our house, and the beauty room is moving! I have an image in my head of what kind of colour scheme I want, but I need to peg something down and buy the supplies. This will also become the ‘jungle room’ and be where I store my rarer plants as well as those that need more specific care.


Assemble the ‘greenhouse’

Speaking of house plants, I’ve brought a large glass cabinet from IKEA that I will be converting into an indoor green house for the more tropical plants. It arrived recently, and it now needs to be put together, and then I’ll need to work out how to install the heat mats, grow lamps and fans.



That’s sums up my goals for this month. Again, there aren’t many, but a lot of them are things I’ll need to keep up over the course of the month. I also have the feeling that last one will take me some time… we’ll see.


Do you have any goals for February?
