SInce we had Big M nearly four where the hell did the time go? years ago, I have wanted to make a reusable advent calendar that can become part of our family Christmas tradition. I wanted to make one so much I even put it on my Day Zero list. See, it’s there at number 67.
I failed last year. I blame the sleep deprivation.
But this year? I am FULL OF BEANS.
At least, I am usually getting a full nights’ sleep, so this year there is no excuse.
A couple of months ago I had a genius idea, and have acquired the first part of the advent calendar. I still have to get some other bits and bobs, splash some paint on and get the glue gun out. And it has to be ready for December 1st.
Best get my skates on then, eh?
Want to join in? You are very welcome. Just set yourself a goal for the month – your very own Personal Challenge. At the beginning of the month, decide what it is that you want to achieve over the next thirty days. It could be anything: losing a couple of pounds, getting the weeding done, making something, learning a new skill. Whatever you like. Putting my management hat on for a second: make sure it is something you can actually achieve in a month. Be SMART (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic, Time-based). Write a post about what you want to achieve and why. If you link back to my post then others can join in too – you can use the badge if you like (the code is over on the right there).
Make sure you put the link to your post on the linky list at the bottom of mine (it’s open for two weeks). Use the opportunity to seek advice from/help out/support fellow bloggers. Then spend the next month attempting to achieve your goal. At the end of the month I’ll be back to let you know how I have got on with my personal challenge and there will be another linky for you to share your success. So come back and tell us how you got on and we can all give you a pat on the back.
