Things I want to do in January

Start a knitting project for myself - I don't make a lot of things for myself, partly because I don't like owning a lot of things and partly because I'm terrible at fitting knitted garments, but it's time to do some selfish crafting.

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...
