September is one of those months where it is almost the end of the year but the beginning of a brand new season. With new Autumn/Winter lines gracing the catwalks, people starting to think about Christmas way before they should and children going into new classes at school it is most definitely a month of change. Questioning myself – is it a good change? Is there a change on my end that is needed?
As I do not have children or work in a job that takes a specific break for the summer holidays work just continues like most as usual. Over the past couple of weeks I have been on leave from work and managed to not only celebrate my birthday with an epic weekender but gone through a week of being bed bound with tonsillitis. Nurses really are the worst patients, all I wanted was to be left alone in my room to get over the illness and read in the moments I could manage to stay awake!
In a way September seems to be the month that people pick up on the New Years resolutions that they haven’t quite got around to and try and sort themselves out before the end of the year creeps in and tasks are rendered unsuccessful.
This brings me to the point of – what have I not ticked off my years list? Well at the beginning of the year I didn’t make an resolutions as quite frankly I am very bad at sticking to them.
So for the month of September what will I be doing?
Reading time – After changing jobs and getting into the swing of things my commute has been cut down to only 20 minutes each way. My reading time which used to be made up mostly of travel time has since diminished – not that I am complaining that work is so close as I have more of life outside of work. However I now have to find the time at home to sit and read. Not being one that is in love with audio books (I tolerate them as a last resort), I barely use my kindle (or kindle app).
Girl time – During the last month myself and Catherine (old school friends right here!) have been out a couple of times and have had a great time. I have a very small circle of friends who are actually quite separate so group occasions are sparse. However after spending some much-needed girly time together that we both enjoyed we need more. As both of us have commitments that take up a lot of time scheduling is paramount.
Blogging time – Right here, right now I have to admit I love my blog (hasn’t been that way for a while!) and I want to put more effort into it. Things will be changing over here at a gradual pace and hopefully you will be seeing the differences very soon. More scheduling.
New places – Time permitting from work I would love to visit two new places that I have not been to before. It is so easy on days off to just head to the local coffee shop and sit there. However there is so much else to do and I am hoping that I will be involved. Camera at the ready of course!
New people – This goes hand in hand with the new places point of the month. Time and effort are needed in equal measure. Getting out of my comfort zone has always been difficult but I will try.
On that note I am going to catch up with a friend I haven’t seen in a while then head home and prepare to go back to work tomorrow before I get on with my list of things for tonight of course!
