November 2018 Goals

5 Nov

One of my long-term goals is to include more of my life into this blog – not just bookish things so my first baby step is to publish goals – both reading and life goals and to talk about them more.

Reading Goals

  • Listen to at least 3 audio books
  • Read at least 3 books
  • Unpack library – we have just moved and I’m itching to unpack my books.
  • Sort through read books – decide what to keep and what to donate.

Blog Goals

  • Finish Reading Challenge Recaps (there is about 20 to write!)
  • Write up the genre pages in the reading challenges
  • Make blog more streamlined
  • Design Graphics for blog
  • Look into social media for blog

Money Goals

  • Save £200 towards Christmas
  • Pay off at least £50 of CC1 (Remaining balance £266.51)
  • Stop using credit cards for silly purchases

House Goals

  • Finish listing DS clothes on Ebay that are outgrown
  • Sort through DD clothes and list on Ebay that are outgrown
  • Organise playroom
  • Organise DS bedroom
  • Organise DD bedroom

I think that’s enough goals for the month but the idea is if I publish these I’m accountable for them!


What are your November goals?

My New Ebay Business :D

29 Oct

Since being made redundant, i decided to start up my own ebay business 😀 I now have the stock in which to do it, ive looked into the legal side of it and i can safely say im ready for it 😀

I’m hoping im making it successful, and that i can make enough money to live on 😀


wish me luck 😀


(also in working from home as such, and being my own boss means that i will have time to read all of my lovely books :D)

Waiting Waiting Waiting . . .

26 Oct

I hate waiting! I’m not a paitent person whatsoever. Firstly queues. I spend an awful long time queuing in the post office, as i do lots of ebay things. My local town post office is normally queued outside the door, normally with two members of staff on the counter, one on the ‘travel money’ which basically means that if you want that you get to skip the queue! totally unfair too! normally there are members of staff having a good natter about what they are doing that night too, or just hanging about. what i do now is go to the post office in the next village to the town, but its quicker to get the car out drive their and post the items their.

secondly slow drivers! i hate slow drivers especially when you get stuck behind one and cant get past. I’m no way a speed freak but i cant be doing with driving along 10 mph under the speed limit.

My current bug bear is waiting for things to be delivered when i order them online. I want my items now! Ihave been waiting two days, i want them now!!!!


moan over!

More Bad Luck :(

9 Oct

Well,  for the last few months i’ve been working in my friends buisness with her that she had just set up and me and her were going to run together. Unfortunatly, the buisness is just not paying so we have got to sell up 😦 To say i am gutted would be an understatement. Just after i was told i burst into tears and ended up sobbing on the shirt of a very lovely bloke :/ It is looking like i have another week, two weeks at most in the current job and then that will be it. My main concern at the moment is the money. i have two phone contracts to pay and now i am quite worried as to how i will. Where i live has a very high level of unemployment and it is extremely difficult to get another job.

However i have been looking on the positives a little

1) i will be able to start my ebay buisness again

2) i will have more time for reading

3) i will have more time for blogging

4) i will have more time to see people

if i could just find a little job it would be something.
