The November Edit

Okay, so does everyone remember this post from November? In short, I thought it would be a nice idea to set myself some monthly goals and see if I could achieve any. Let's see how I managed...

Oh sketchbook, how I loathe thee.
start working in all three of my module sketchbooks
Oh, sketchbooks. My first sketchbook deadline is today so as this goes live, I will be sat in my uni library hoping to finish it. That sounds terrible, and I assure you that I didn't leave everything to the last minute. My printer has sadly passed on, so I've had to write notes and notes on separate pieces of paper, which I can then add to my sketchbook once I can print out the images. Does that make sense? ANYWAYS. Yes, I have started working on my sketchbooks. But mostly focusing on this one. Sorry, other sketchbooks!

keep the house reasonably tidy
Um, I want to say yes? But really, it's a no. Joe is the main tidy-upper in the house, so... thanks for that! 

take Monty on some nice Autumnal walks
We went on a few walks, but not nearly enough for the little guy. Must try harder.

don't buy any more fizzy pop
Okay, so I still bought quite a lot of fizzy pop. Maybe slightly less? I dunno.

bake sticky toffee pudding, or a treacle tart
I didn't do either of these things, but Joe made gingerbread cake! It is awesome and sticky and soooo amazingly good.

do fun things on my/Joe's days off
We didn't get to go to the cinema to see Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs 2, sadly. I think we managed to spend two or three days together, just being boring and doing things like a weekly shop. Oh, the glamorous life we lead!

Wow, so that was a disaster month! I haven't set myself any goals for December as I have been so stressed out recently with uni deadlines and mis-managing a few things in my life. Sigh. I'll try again in January, probably. I'm hoping to find
