October goals

1st October 2015

October goals

October is here! I’m not really a fan of autumn and winter. Of course, hot chocolate, blankets and candles make it bearable, but it won’t be long before I start the count down for summer 2016.

I though I’d set myself some goals for the month of October seeing as I’m feeling productive (although I’m not sure it will last):

  • Replenish my wardrobe – Recently I have been getting rid of more clothes than I’ve been buying, so my wardrobe is almost empty. I’m in desperate need of new clothes and essentials.
  • Book a driving lesson – I said I would do it when I got my first pay check so I have no excuse now! I’m completely terrified of learning to drive again, especially as I will be in an automatic this time around.
  • Make a dentist appointment – My wisdom teeth are coming through and I’d like to get them checked to ensure they are coming through okay. If I make an appointment at the beginning of the month I might actually get seen before Christmas!
  • See Spectre at the cinema – Just because I’m a huge Bond fan. The theme song sucks but hopefully the film won’t. Also, rumour has it, Roger Moore is in Liverpool the night of the Spectre premier so I’m hoping I bump into my favourite Bond.
  • Upload the HTML and CSS tutorials I’ve been working on – I was suppose to do this in September but then work got in the way. I’m determined to get them up in October.
  • Celebrate Tyrone’s birthday – He turns 22 this month, so we will probably go out for a meal to celebrate.

In addition to Tyrone’s 22nd birthday, we will also be celebrating our 6th anniversary, and my hip socket’s 11th anniversary. So really, October isn’t as bad as I first thought.

What are your goals for October?

Enjoyed this post? Why not share it...


  1. A month full of celebrations, how nice x

    Good luck with your October goals, I hope you are able to do all of them. :)

    I mainly want to get my bedroom finished before Uni starts next month. :D

  3. Me and Matt have tickets to see Roger Moore, he’s doing An Evening With…at the Empire! You might bump into him! Good luck with all of your goals. Hopefully driving won’t be as daunting as it seems to be. I can only drive an automatic, and though it is frustrating when the car doesn’t quite know what gear it should be in, hopefully it will be easier on your hip. I need to see a dentist too but I’m far too scared!

      That must be why he’s in town. I hope you have an amazing night!

      Glad to hear I’m not alone when it comes to automatic cars. I’m not a big fan of the dentist and I’ve just signed up to a new one, which frightens me even more. My old dentist was so nice and gentle!

  4. Good luck with your goals! :)
    I’m sure driving will be fine – it’s just like riding a really, really fast bike. I’m booking in a driving lesson myself, so I can get a “touch up” of my skills before I sit my full licence test! Eeeep! Got my fingers crossed for both of us :)

  5. Good luck replenishing your wardrobe! I am making that a gradual process, personally.

    I have always driven an automatic, they say if you drive a manual you can drive both haha. I need to get some lessons in too, which is what I wrote in my Monthly Review. At the moment I am just driving with Nick and/or my parents. But it would be nice to get some professional advice before I take a test.

    I need to see my dentist too, but unfortunately he is ill! I only need a checkup though, my wisdom teeth have no issues since I had teeth removed already to make way for them.

    Good luck with the HTML and CSS tutorials! :D :D :D :D I’m sure work has been teaching you some new stuff too.

      I just hate this time of year for shopping. It’s in-between seasons so shops don’t tend to have all their winter stock in yet.

      The last time I saw my dentist he said my wisdom teeth weren’t going to be too problematic as they are coming through straight. Still hurt though!

  6. I actually love going to the dentist haha. Can’t wait to see those CSS and HTML tutes. :)
