For me it's reducing clutter, I have way too many books, DVD's, and clothes. In fact I have joined a Clutter Chat Meetup support group for gentle encouragement. I read the book "Goodbye, things" which gives the example of how relaxing hotel rooms are because they're not full of things. I can't bear to part with a whole load of books just yet so as an intermediary step I just went them in "bags for life" hidden away out of sight.

I'm in a similar position to HH, in that I have lived in my bungalow for almost two years and haven't found space to store some of my stuff, nor begun to decorate; my partner and I have been discussing decoration, but formalised nothing, so it would be good to make a start on that.

I also need to start living a healthier lifestyle; this year, I've probably been away from home more than I've been here, with various trips abroad, music festivals, weekends away and other events, so the exercise "regime" has slipped, home-cooked meals have become rarer and I can't remember the last time I went on a proper ramble. Even though the diary is pretty full for the rest of the year, I would like to find more time for walking, at least try to exercise more and cook whenever I can.

Well the plans I had been somewhat scuppered by inconsiderate bastards today but for the sake of remaining positive, things I'd like to do before 2018 is over...

Find a new home for my mum's cats (though I'm pretty much at the mercy of others for that one)
Recarpet and decorate my bedrooms and hallway, and get rid of a load of clutter.
Start voluteering again
Start a distance learning course or two.
Start going swimming.
Make my remaining cats instagram famous.

Start playing the keyboard - so I can play Nessun Dorma and Foundations (this probably won't happen because I've had the keyboard for a fair few months now and it's still in the box)

Make some savoury sweet potato muffins

Go to a veggie meetup (but I'm worried that I'm not vegetarian enough)

Find somewhere else to live

2) Sum up the courage to see a GP to ask for a referral for an autism assessment.
3) Buy an exercise bike and start using it.

Default Re: Aims for 2018

Does going to a physio to try and fix my bollocked shoulder (which has caused me grief since March) count? The whole thing is an "experience", the phone call, the going somewhere new, the awkward 1 to 1 ...time, everything I despise in one small neat package

I'd also like to attempt to swim, lose another 5kg, drive somewhere out of town for the first time ever and probably some other stuff but I'm not entirely convinced I'll get any of the above done..I'll blink and it will be bloody February again

Good post, Newbs

It's a funny time of year, running up to Christmas and the New Year, I don't think people associate it with goals. With winter drawing in I always get quite down.

I like the thought of setting a goal before the end of the year. I think because I have lost momentum with my art work I am going to try to do enough work to have a little exhibition.

Thank you Newbs for putting a positive light on the end of the year

Great thread newbs

I'm doing a course at the moment, which is split into 2 modules. Module 1 needs to be complete by xmas and I have to pass it when it's graded on 4th January, so hoping to have my 10 logs, 3 assignments, 1 presentation and 1 observation all finished by then. It's a lot of work ahead. Right now, I only have 3 logs done out of all I have to do, so need to get my finger out.

I also want to get better at saying 'no' to work colleagues as it's the only way I'll get through the course demands

Ugh, there is so much I *should* be doing. The most important thing is to decide where the heck I'm going to be living in 2019. Every move is a giant risk, which is why I haven't done anything. I have become more and more risk averse.

Nothing major, but:

- I'd like to start cooking a bit. Nothing elaborate, just chop-things-up-put-them-in-a-pan, difficult to **** up stuff.

- go to another course at the buddhist centre, even though they seem to be set up specifically to torture any SA person stupid enough to attend

- save towards moving next year

- finish knitting the world's ugliest blanket

That made me chuckle. I imagine you sneaking a bacon sandwich into the meet to munch on when you have a loo break.
