    Extra long term - pay of the mortgage as quickly as possible. Enjoy time as a family. Get back into travelling. Move towards working in speech therapy, or something else more linguistics-based than what I'm doing.
    Update from me too:

    Short term - all done

    Long term - haven't worked at all since my daughter was born. Work-related goals are my main ones for this year. As for another baby...will wait until things are a little more stable with work for me and with my partner's mental health.

    Extra long term - Nothing towards that yet, but same goals still.

    Mine are all kind of random..

    short term - Perhaps think about getting back to driving lessons to actually get my license.
    - Work on self esteem.
    - Prepare DS1 for move to a different Kinder for his 2nd year

    3yr - Go to Scotland with the family to see DH's family.
    - Possibly discuss 3rd child (if not sooner)
    4-5yr - Go back to work, maybe study Midwifery.

    These are more or less the main things I think about anyway

    I can't break it down into years but I would love one day to devote myself to cooking, farming and photography that celebrates both. My immediate goals are to pick up my camera every day and make one new dish a week.
