Get Good Summer 2014: Week One
After having to hang my head in shame at the end of last year I seem to have started this summer with a bang. Let’s hope that I can continue in the same vein for the next 9 weeks!
Here’s a little update on how I have got on:-
Read 10 books
This has gone surprisingly well and I have finished one book already, ‘The Vintage Summer Wedding’ by Jenny Oliver (my review of this will be up next week on the blog) and am halfway through another which was recommended by someone on Twitter and which I am thoroughly enjoying.
Have one interesting date night a week
Last week, we actually…wait for it…went out on a Real. Live. Date. This never happens. Never ever. Usually if we manage to coerce someone into having the children we fill our time by catching up on our sleep or cleaning the house or racing up and down the country to some function or other. So I was very surprised when my Other Half arrived home in the middle of the week and informed me that we were going out for dinner and a movie.
Okay, so it was pretty much the same as we do from the comfort of our own home most nights but I can’t think of the last time we actually saw a film the same month it came out. For those wondering, we had a delicious Frankie & Benny’s followed by watching 22 Jump Street. Which was hilarious. Although we seemed to be the only ones in the cinema laughing…go figure.
The other three things on my list I can’t actually do until the start of the summer holidays so I’ve got three weeks to ensure they happen.
