Home Making Goals – Five in Five


I feel I need to apologise for all my posts in the coming week.  They will likely be boring for most of you to read.  I want to write some goals down for the forthcoming term.  I have in the past always written my schooling goals down but no others.  This term I want to try to attain in other areas apart from home school.  In other words I would like my life to be a bit more balanced away from just home school, so this week I will be sharing goals from home making goals to personal goals to frugal goals.  Today I am focusing on my home making goals because, not being a complete natural in this area, it tends to get neglected somewhat.  So here are my five goals which I hope to achieve in the next five weeks:


  • Hand stitch some kitchen curtains, as well as make some squares up in the same material to staple behind the wall dresser windows.  I will be using material I had hanging in our first flat to hide the washing machine in our kitchen.  I have always loved the cottage look even when we lived in a very modern flat, so I love this material as much now as I did all those almost 20 odd years ago:


  • Clear away everything around the dresser in the living room and swap the chest of drawers with T’s smaller chest.
  • Attach a piece of wood behind the taps in the kitchen to stop stuff falling down the back.


  • Buy hooks for the rest of our mugs and get them attached to the spice cabinet, so all our cups are hanging instead of taking up space in the cupboards.

  • Repair fridge door (the door shelf for the milk has broken and needs to be replaced)

So there are my five in five.  And even if I don’t do them all, I will undoubtably do more than I would with no goals at all.
