My personal target for 2013 is...

To stay sane and solvent - anything else is icing on the cake.

I am going to lose 2st. I am not going to be 50 and fat.


To get a bit more stuff done, generally. As well as doing a bit more relaxing, paradoxically.


Next year I intend to research Royal Mail prices more thoroughly, before charging customers too little for postage and packaging. coffeekid

I'm more concerned with getting to the end of 2012 first.


To get the job of my dreams - a one-person department in a supportive school where I can teach my own schemes of work that children are interested in, and not just the same thing that's been done for 20 years.


Perfect the work-life balance that bit more. No one ever says on their death bed that they wish they had spent more time at work.


I wish I could set a target like "find my perfect partner... fall in love" but that is not going to happen. I'm not defeatist, just realistic.


For 2013 my aim is to make my home into the haven that I have always dreamed of.


I'm going to complete the translation that I've been working on for a year or two (not into English - the other way round). Only 29 more chapters to go.


To travel as much as I can while I am still able to do so, and can afford to, to continue with TEFL and to clear out the house.
