30 Days Blogging – Day 7: My plans, dreams and goals

I’ll confess now that I thought this Blogging Challenge would be quick way of getting some more blog content. But I was wrong. It’s really making me use my brain to answer some of these and looking forward they only get more challenging. Plans, goals and dreams is quite tough. I’ve always had aims but never strict plans. Also, there are a few things which I will always keep private, even from the blogging community. Sorry! However, there are things I am willing to share. So here goes…

One – Being happy!

This might sound a bit ‘fluffy’ but I just want to be happy in life. Whatever I am doing, wherever I am, I try to be happy. If I’m not I try to make a change to get me back to happy. For me happy is a feeling of contentment and security. It’s about being safe and having those I love around me. It’s about enjoying nature and doing things which make life for me and others better. So yes, happy.


Two – Studying for a Modern Languages degree

I did Maths at Uni but I spent my third year in Granada in southern Spain. About 5 or 6 years ago, I looked into doing an Open University degree in Modern Languages – Spanish being one of them. But the cost and time commitment didn’t appeal at the time. For starters I was spending most free time rowing or training for rowing. But when H is older, this is something I would like to take forward.


Three – Live in Spain again

I loved living in Granada. Spain has a completely different culture to the UK and by embracing the Spanish approach I learnt more about myself. I have never been back for more than a holiday. I can’t see us living there for any period of time whilst H is a child. One day though I do intend to drag Sam there and spend a few months enjoying some regular paella and tapas!


Four – Bake more

I love baking (more cakes and breads than pastry) but I don’t do it much now we have H. I could if I made time for it but I prioritise other things. As H gets older though I plan to teach her to bake. I remember my Mum teaching me to bake when I was little (she was a pro cake decorator too – something I would also love to become better at!).

Five – See H grow-up

Losing Mum when I was 2 months pregnant forever changed my view on life. I had assumed my parents would be with me well into adulthood; That they would be there when I had a family. Then Mum was gone. At 58. I’ve also read about a number of mums with young children losing battles to cancer or other tragic diseases. Or in the case of Jo Cox who was shot doing her job as an MP. I dream of being here for H when she needs me. I selfishly want to see her become an adult too. There are many things outside of my control on this one. But I try to eat healthy and exercise with this – my biggest dream – in mind.

    • Yes, I think as I get older I definitely become even less materialistic. Of course I like a shiny new bag or notepad. But my life doesn’t hinge on them. Glad to hear there are others out there with similar goals in life! Thanks for your comment x

  • I’m so sorry to hear about your loss. These are great though I am in Spain at the moment and I am with you I love it and could totally see me and are family living here. We are in fact on the hunt for a property with a view to spending more time here before the kids start school. If it happens I too would definitely have to learn Spanish. I hope you get to achieve all the above and most of all that you are happy! Thanks for sharing this at #familyfun. Hope to see you again next week xx

    • I’d be most jealous if you got a place in Spain!! But it’s a wonderful country and the easiest way to learn a language is living in it. Your kids would probably pick it up from Spanish friends too! Thanks for reading and commenting x

  • You have some lovely goals there. It must have been lovely living in Spain.

  • I think these are marvellous goals and I know you will reach all! #fortheloveofBLOG

  • So sorry to hear about the loss of your Mum, that must have been really tough. It’s great that you have set some goals, and are also completing the 30 day blogging challenge. I hope that do get to complete all your goals, and do get to go back and live in Spain. Thanks so much for linking up at #fortheloveofBLOG. Claire x
