Here’s how I did on my March Bucket List:
Bake a least one Cake – FAIL! I have not baked one cake, but I have eaten a lot of cake. Whenever I have had time in the kitchen I’ve either been cooking food for our little one or cooking dinner for us.
Improve my blog – What have I done? I’ve made some subtle changes to include some basic functionality that I was missing before, can’t believe I missed off the Follow Me button in WordPress, and also the Email Subscribe button. (doh!). I’ve also updated the order of the side bar so that the important badges now feature at the top. I’m feeling really pleased with my stats too, with 1618 followers on Twitter, and 15 blog posts published. I’ve also noticed a steady rise in traffic to approx 50 views per day, this may seem low but I’ve only been blogging for 3 months so I’m pretty pleased with that. Increased Twitter presence, participating and commenting Linky’s and joining #tribalchat I think are the reasons for increased traffic.
Clean the oven -I have half cleaned the oven, it still needs a proper deep clean with the Oven Pride that is still sitting in the cupboard, but I have scraped off all the burnt on food on the oven trays.
Be happy with how weaning is going – Our weaning journey has been a little tricky this month what with teething, and only wanting to eat yoghurt. Prior to the teething we were getting on well with tomato based food….spag bol, chilli, etc….I would like to see our little one eat more finger food.
Sort out little one’s admin – I have not done this, but I have sorted out the pile of house admin (does this count?) I’ll add this back to the bucket let for April.
Here’s my April Bucket List:
Decide on what I want to do when I return to work – At the end of this month it’ll be 8 weeks until I go back to work. By the end of this month I want to have a plan in place on what hours and working practices I want to be doing when I return, and share this with my manager and HR.
Introduce fish into our little one’s diet – I don’t eat fish and I know that I need to introduce fish into her diet. I have some fish in the freezer, so the plan is to make a fish pie with that.
Defrost the freezer – Big job, it needs doing, as it’s taking to much energy from the fridge as it’s so iced up. I also struggle to get the draws to close too. So this month, I need to eat all the food and defrost it without causing a flood in the kitchen.
Blog – I would like to reach 2,000 followers on Twitter, complete the 30 Day Blogging Challenge, and grow traffic to my blog.
Admin – As I completely failed to sort out little one’s admin last month, it needs to be done this month.
I hope you enjoyed reading, I’l let you know how I get on at the end of the month.
