I’m a huge fan of Elsie and Emma’s blog A Beautiful Mess. I think everyone already reads it but if you don’t know it – it features recipes, crafts, outfits and a peek into the girls daily lives. It is probably the blog I read most often. So when Elsie recently shared her 4 simple goals and asked her readers to get involved and share theirs I knew I had to take part. The idea is to come up with 4 simple goals that will make your life better but that aren’t results focused and blog the results, so I will of course be blogging as I achieve my goals. These are my 4 Simple Goals: 1. I used to do quite a few DIY crafts on this blog and spent time DIYing with the kids but as my schedule has gotten more hectic I’ve been doing this less and less. I pledge to spend more time DIYing and of course sharing the results on this blog. 2. I seem to spend all my time sat in front of a laptop. This isn’t great for me as I have been suffering a lot of migraines recently. Twitter and blog reading has replaced the time I used to spend curled up with a good book. So I’m aiming to finish each day with a book curled up in bed. 3. Photography is one of my weak points. I have a DSLR but don’t fully know how to use it. I rally want to work on my outfit post photography in particular. As they say practice makes perfect. 4. A busy lifestyle means I tend to eat a lot of unhealthy fast food. But there ar a lot of healthy dishes out there that are easy to prepare and healthy to boot. I’ll be adding more salad and fruit and vg top my daily diet. I am hoping a healthier diet will also help boost my energy levels and show in better skin. So those are my goals. What are yours?

It occurred to me yesterday night that I used to do all sorts of crafty stuff… and I haven’t done any of it in quite awhile. I need to pick up the knitting needles again!
