Some short term goals.....maybe??

I'm good at making long term goals.......but not so good at achieving them.......I have a 'there's always tomorrow' attitude........I know I tend to work to deadlines.....if I've a month to do something.....you can bet I'll be completing it the night before!!!

So with the Easter holidays beginning today........yay........and 3 weeks with only one holiday course.......and a few hours office admin to do............p'raps some short term goals might be good!!
1. Total clear and re-sort of craft area.....as you can see.....there's so much on the front of the shelves......I can hardly get to the boxes!
2.  We have an area of the garden finally cleared of weeds........I need to plan it out,to start planting and dig up, divide and plant bits from other areas of the garden into it.......not to mention finishing planting all my seeds.....this may, of course, require some visits to garden centres and nurseries.

3. Finish watching all the wonderful She Art videos......while the classroom is still open.......and before Christy's next class begins!!

4. Give the conservatory it's Spring makeover.........it's barely used in winter.......and becomes a bit of a dumping ground.

Let's see how well I get on with these!!!!!

That is so me too - I always put off to the deadline and then try and convince myself that I work better under pressure. We started by sorting the garage at the weekend. Boy that was a job and a half :0)

ooh, your conservatory is beautiful! I'm a last-minute goal-doer, too, good luck with your goals!

Karen said...

Good luck with the goals Jacky. Lots to do in our house too but short term goals are not my strength either.

Sian said...

Best of luck Jacky!

I am hopeless at setting goals and I really do need a deadline to finish things off. At schoool I used to write all of an essay except the conclusion which I would cobble together in the cloakrooms before assembly the morning I was supposed to hand it in. Things haven't improved a lot since.

Sounds like you have lots of fun things to take care of. I always love having a peek into my friend's crafting spaces. Maybe you'll post another photo when it's done? xo

Good Luck with your goals, don't forget to show us the "after" photographs too

Happy Monday

I'm a bit like you too, no matter how long I have to finish something I always tend to end up doing it at the last minute! Maybe we just work better under pressure?
Love the conservatory, I've always wanted one but at this rate we'll have to wait till the children have left home before we can afford one ;o)
Enjoy the Easter holidays

I definitely have a hard time with BIG projects/long term goals. I'm much better with things that have a 2-3 week lifespan.

ooh housework goals, yuck. i am the world's worst tidyupper and hate trying to sort stuff out. my mumsays i'm a clutter fiend!!!
ur garden area looks gr8 and ready for that injection of growth. as for the conservatory, it looks lovely, where is the dumping area, it looks too tidy?

Alison said...

I agree with Jo..it doesn't look much like a dumping ground to me. I need to get into our spare room( which IS a dumping ground) and get it 'done' as mum and dad arrive on Friday- and YES I have known about the visit for about three weeks!

Gosh I think you would be shocked to see my dumping room (aka spare bedroom!) it is shocking! I am like Jo and seem to be a real hoarder thus my phrase for this year'sort out'!!

Lynne in NI said...

Enjoy your Easter break ... sounds like you're gonna be busy!!

Denise said...

You are going to be busy!!! My craft room needs a sort out too - I do it then it needs doing again after a few days !Good luck with your goals :-)

Karen said...

I just LOVE your conservatory! Building one of those is #2 on my wish list for our house. (A kitchen redo is #1.)

Cheryl said...

You are so me I am terrible at last minute can do's and I have plenty of time. My craft space also needs a major rehaul as my craft space is my bedroom x

Rachel B said...

Great goals Jacky, you are going to be very busy :)

Melissa said...

Sounds like some good goals and fun, too - organizing scrap supplies, gardening, She Art . . .:>) Enjoy.

Amy said...

The goals are great!! I need to clean up my scrap/craft area as well! Your conservatory is AMAZING! I want one of those some day :)

Becky said...

Good luck with all those goals! Hope the weather is nice and you can get outside to do your garden.

alexa said...

That's a nice mix of the creative and the practical - and that conservatory is just waiting for a cup of tea and a well-earned rest!

humel said...

Good luck with your goals, Jacky! I'm a 'leave it till the last minute' kinda gal myself..... I usually start my German homework at 9.15am on the day of my 10am class! *blush*

WendyB said...

LOL - you sound just like me, guess there must be a few of us out there. Good luck with your goals - here's hoping you have some nice weather to help you along :-)

jillconyers said...

Admirable goals that will surely keep you busy. Love the layout.

Nancy Maxwell James said...
