My list for 2017

Last year I wrote an article about how I make a list of stuff to do each year. On New Year’s Eve my wife and I sat down in front of the wood burner, beer in hand and came up with the list(s) for 2017. Here you go.

My List

    • Go on a microadventure with Lyndsey (carried forward from 2016)
    • Read at least 11 books*
    • Do a 5k Parkrun in sub-22 minutes
    • Weigh 11st something for at least 30 consecutive days
    • Go camping with my daughter for two separate nights
    • Go on two microadventures by myself

Lyndsey’s List

    • Do a 5k Parkrun in sub-24 minutes
    • Do a 10k race
    • Cook 1-2 healthy family meals each week
    • Cook a Sunday roast – Done, 07/01
    • Be better at keeping in touch with people

Our joint List

    • Go camping with the four of us
    • Design and print a picture book for the 1st year of the girl and boy
    • Have a date night at least once a month

I’m updating this post throughout the year when things get ticked off.

Right, let’s get cracking.
