Blogmas Day 3: Five things I want to do in December


I've read a couple of blog posts recently including Autumn by Captured by Jade and A relaxed December Bucket List from Northumberland Mam and they got me thinking about what I'd like to do this month. Here are five things I want to do in December.

1. Go for a long walk in the countryside!
I walk pretty much everywhere and meet my friend for a long walk along the seafront each week but we haven't ventured into the countryside in months! Partly because we were in India for the whole of October half-term and now back in Brighton we've been seeing friends at the weekends and partly because the weather has been awful! It's dark and rainy most days at the moment but hopefully there will be a weekend when is it dry and sunny so we can finally go into the countryside for a long walk. Living in urban Brighton I do feel the need to get out of the city regularly and Pip also loves the countryside.

2. Make some Christmas decorations/bakes with Pip
Pip loves being creative and his favourite things are Lego, dinosaurs and cars! He also loves to paint and draw. Although he makes things at school a lot it's been a long while since we made some crafts at home so we're planning on many some Christmas decorations and a gingerbread house! Tying in with making decorations we also plan to see the Christmas lights in London!


3. Blog every day!
This year I'm doing Blogmas, where I'll be blogging every day this month! I've blogged daily in the past but this is my first time taking part in Blogmas and it's exciting! Although it's just a few days in, I already feel more motivated and productive for doing it. Let's see if I last the month! My first December post lists my reasons for joining in with Blogmas this year.

4. Declutter
I have so much stuff and need a big declutter! I feel with the new year approaching, my resolutions are coming early. I'm also hosting Christmas at mine this year and need more of an organised space! If anyone has any suggestions about where to start let me know!

5. Exercise more
I play badminton regularly and swim a lot although I haven't done the latter in months. The weather has been so miserable lately I think I need to make more of an effort to lead a healthier lifestyle and get into a regular exercise routine while the sun is out (if it ever comes out). It's amazing what a good work out can do for the body and mind!

  5. I am part way through a massive de-clutter and as much as I am enjoying it, I am wondering where all this stuff has come from x

  6. Ah, walking along the seafront each week with a friend, as part of your regular day to day, sounds lovely - I hope you're able to get out to the countryside this month.

    With a motivating factor to declutter, I'm sure you'll make headway in no time. I've really gotten into a slow/simple/minimal living mindset over the last couple of years, and regularly declutter here. Some people say starting small is a good way to begin.

    Thank you for sharing my post <3

    I hope you're able to meet these goals - I'm sure you will :-) Happy December to you & Pip!

  10. Great ideas! We have slowly started decluttering as we are redecorating and then having a new carpet in January so must get rid of lots of our crap lol! My two are also very excited about making a gingerbread house.
