My short term goals this month are to:
1) Apply for my provisional driving licence. I've decided to learn to drive, finally at the age of 26! I've never learned as I'm scared, I would be devastated if I hit an animal, it's expensive, there's never been a need to drive in Bristol as our public transport is so good and it's bad for the environment. However, I've decided to learn now as Alex works abroad and I would feel reassured to know I can drive Eric to the hospital in an emergency, and to feel a bit more freedom and less like I'm stranded when Alex is away. I don't plan to drive often but it would also be nice to be able to drive to stay with my parents, as at the moment they drive to pick me up which is twice as bad for the environment than if I just drove one journey, and it would be lovely to be able to get out of Bristol, to the countryside and the beach.
2) Finally finish my Christening 'thank you' cards and send them out! It has now been six weeks since the Christening, and I feel really, really rude! I have been a busy mummy as Eric's been under the weather, and it has taken me alot longer than I thought it would to make the cards, but I hate bad manners so I need to do them ASAP!
3) Sort out the allotment! My allotment has got seriously overgrown and it's stressing me out an extreme amount. I am planning to go and dig tomorrow and Sunday, but I so don't want to! I will though or I'll get into trouble.
