Over the past few days I’ve been reading some blogs and all the fantastic things parents have been doing with their kids. My time with Sylvia is often limited to evenings after school and weekends and is then determined by how my health is each day.
To make sure we have lots of family fun despite being ill I have to plan. This is where the quote above comes in. I can dream of having more fun with my daughter and set a goal to spend more time with her but if I don’t plan anything, it wont happen and will just be a nice thought.
So after sitting down together we have planned 15 things we want to do in the lead up to Christmas. This is our Christmas Bucket List.
Go to a Pantomine
Make some Christmas Decorations
Make a secret santa gift
Make our Christmas Hampers
Read ten Christmas Books
Have a Christmas Movie night
Visit Santa at a Grotto
Make some Reindeer and Snowman Poop! (with marshmallows and chocolate raisins)
Make a Christmas present for Grandma
Write a letter to Santa
Do some Christmas baking
Create some Christmas outfits for Sylvia’s dolls
write Christmas cards for Sylvia’s school friends together
Make a Christmas parcel for Sylvia’s Cousins in New Zealand
Here are the things I’d realistically like to achieve by the end of the year. This is my Blogging Bucket List.
By December I would like to have 500 followers on Facebook. This is the one social network I struggle with and have not even attempted to try and build yet. My FB page is growing slowly and organically and 500 is a nice figure in my mind!
By the end of my first year of blogging, I’d like to have 8000 followers on Twitter.
I would like to change my blog template before my one year anniversary. (Start of January)
I hope to have the illustrations completed for my first book. Yes, I’ve not mentioned it up until now but I am working on a book which I hope to publish in 2017.
I hope to have grown my Instagram to 1000 followers.
I hope to have written an additional 4 Guest Posts. So far I have done two.
I hope to be contacted by a PR/BRAND (and get a christmas gift for my daughter).
I hope to have made my initial contact with Medtronic (The company- I need to impress in order for them to miraculously agree to giving me a free Adrenal Pump in 2016) You never know! They just might if I keep growing my following and doing my best. It’s worth a shot!
I hope to have received the money for two posts I wrote in August that I’m still waiting to get paid for.
I hope to get published on THE MIGHTY- a popular website which posts articles written by people with chronic illness, health conditions and or disabilities. This may be very difficult to achieve but I’ll try
I hope to find the time to have a media pack made. Yep, I still have not done one but I hope to have this sorted by December at least.
To have found a sponsor to help cover the costs of attending the MumpreneurUK Conference in November. I just found out last week that I am a finalist in the Voice category and so it would be lovely to attend and stay in accommodation close by so I can split the day up and rest part way through and have somewhere to get ready for the awards etc.
Well this is quite a lot and as Debbie who tagged me said in her post, some things may take a little longer or may run over into next year but that’s okay. If i have goals then I have something to look towards.
A few weeks ago I was tagged by Laura from Laura’s Lovely Blog to write this post, 8 Photos of Happiness. I was really excited to be tagged for this one as I love sharing photos and it’s an opportunity to look back on happy times.
Thankyou Laura for the tag and I hope you enjoy my pictures. Angela xx
This is me with my parents, my sister and her husband and my two brothers. I live far away from my family as we migrated to New Zealand in 1995 and I returned to the UK in 2010.This photo makes me happy and is a nice reminder of those that I love and miss.
Next is a photo of my daughter Sylvia when I still called her peanut. At the time i did not know whether i was having a girl or a boy so peanut was the name.
This was Sylvia’s first Christmas. It was a sad time because it was when I separated from Sylvia’s birth father and took out a protection order but it was a happy time as I was on my own and always listened to Leona lewis Song Happy which made me happy.
This was on tour in Paris with Sylvia. When Sylvia was 18 month, we went travelling to different countries and this was a great experience full of happy memories.
This is another travel Photo. This time we were in Amsterdam and had just been on a boat ride which was very cool.
This is a picture of John and I taken around the time we got engaged. We were both so excited and happy to have found one another.
Here is a lovely wedding photo. This was the best and most happiest day ever and a week before I collapsed and was diagnosed with Adrenal failure.
This is me at my daughter’s school play. I don’t get out much due to illness and it was wonderful to be able to go and see Sylvia perform as an angel. I loved it.
These photos make me happy but it also makes me really sad because I see my life and how different it is now I am unwell and on steroids. Not wanting to put a negative spin on it but I really do hope to get better treatment one day so I can feel happier about myself once more and go places and do things like I used to. No matter what though, I’ll always try to be happy and positive no matter what life throws at me.
