Sew a cushion cover or two - There's a giant floor cushion in my room that I sit on every night when I'm blogging or watching TV. I brought it all the way home from a charity shop in Orkney and it's ace, except that the cover is a bit stained and ripped and generally gross. I finally found fabric I liked in a charity shop to re-cover it and I'm excited to get it looking presentable. I also inherited a couple of pretty fabric panels recently and if I can whip them into covers too I'd be doing well in the sewing game!
Tackle the alteration bag - My friend hates sewing and I hate cooking, so we came up with a deal. I'd fix her clothes (sew on any loose buttons, repair the holes, etc) and in return, I'd get a Cake Point for each item. Five Cake Points and she'd make me an actual cake. It's like Schrute Bucks but more delicious. And more easily attainable, I reckon.
Assess the wardrobe situation - Fancy way of saying 'stop shoving stuff in there and have a clearout'. I have many clothes and little space so I think a few, lesser worn items need to be evaluated and packed away for a while.
Find an awesome new lunch place - Tam and I love going out to eat and we made a vow to try some new eateries this year. We're pretty good at that anyway but it's been a while since we've found anywhere really great and I'm ready to have a new default place. Where's good in Glasgow?
Start watching Outlander - Because I'm Scottish and I should have seen some of it by now, right?
Go see Star Wars: The Force Awakens, The Danish Girl and The Revenant - So, everything with 'the' in the title this month. I love Alicia Vikander and Domhnall Gleeson, which makes all these movies automatic must-sees.
Update my CV - My work contract is coming to an end and, although I'd be absolutely gutted if it didn't get extended, I work in a sector that relies heavily on outside funding, so anything could happen. Cross all your fingers for me!
What's everyone else up to this month? I have no idea why I took a sudden urge to write myself a list of goals but I'm not sure I'd count on them appearing regularly...
