    Default 2016 - Hopes, Dreams, Wishes, etc.

    It will be interesting to look back on this in 12 months time, and see if 2016 lived up to expectations.

    What are you hoping to achieve, or to have happen, in yours and your family's lives over the course of 2016.

    Nothing spectacular for me:-

    * Get through my probationary period at work, and have the opportunity to move from casual to permanent part-time.

    * Move to our new place and get everything unpacked and organised.

    * Support DH as he starts a Bachelor of Languages at Uni, and help him succeed in his endeavours.

    * Support DD, as she'll likely need to go into childcare once or twice a week next year, with me working and DD studying.

    * Hopefully, at least start toilet training DD; and possibly move her to a big kid's bed.

    * Improve my woeful organisational skills.

    * Lose 10kg, by improving my eating and exercise habits, and hopefully creating a life-long change.

    Like I said, nothing particularly interesting for me; but what about you? What do you want 2016 to bring?

    I hope to:

    Conceive and possibly have #2.

    Continue the good savings we are building

    Get/do more paid work

    Complete the first phase of my degree and hopefully get a solid start on the second

    Decide whether I want ds to start 3 year old kinder in 2017

    Build on my relationship with dh - we have some stuff that needs working out.

    Declutter once and for all!!

    I want to be a better mother. That's my main priority.

    I want to be more organised and structured in my day to day life.

    I need to find an exercise that I enjoy so I can become even just a tiny bit fitter than what I am now.

    I'd like to be made permanent part time at work instead of casual.

    I need to set a budget and stick it to it.

    Get at least 2 more subjects done at Uni. Get a job so we can have a few more options financially. Figure out our property strategy for the next 5 years (we keep changing our minds but I want to make a decision before DD starts school in 2017).

    Ooh this is much more fun to think about than the crappiness that was 2015

    1. Go back to uni full time (being part time is useless!)
    2. Lose the 10ish kg I gained while pregnant. Which will be much easier I'm working full time since I won't be home with access to the fridge all day!
    3. For DH to write and submit his PhD thesis and hopefully be a lot happier.
    4. Go on a holiday to Tasmania. I lived there for 5 years (left 3 years ago) and miss it so much.
    5. Have two research papers published. I've been putting off writing them since I got pregnant :-/
    6. For DS to learn to talk so I can finally know what is going on his head and connect more with him, he is such a mystery at the moment!
    7. Continue to have enough income for rent, food, childcare, electricity and internet. …That's all we need, right?

    I think 2016 will be a big year. I hope to:
    1. Spend more time with DP. He's been away most of 2015 and I miss him terribly.
    2. Be a great mum to my wonderful DD.
    3. Start back at work part time and be a good employee while still spending plenty of quality time with DP and DD.
    4. Sell our house and buy another one where we want to live.
    5. Support DP's study ambitions
    6. Spend less $ and save more.
