2015 Goals

I guess it is not a good sign that in my book I wrote 'Goals 20104'

Anyway a bit of a mixture:

Reduce mortgage capital by over £10k - this is the minimum but not sure how much it was be in over-payments as the interest rate is potentially changing

Commence legalization of the Crete house - going to take years and cost a ton but if I start it then I will be closer to finishing it

Lose a further 20kg with my new healthier liftstyle -  I am not saying I have lost 8kg so far as that belongs to 2014 and the slightly lighter me is now real me. So the current weight is my new base.

Devise a new income plan -  Some additional income, maybe for now, or maybe for something to do during retirement/early retirement.   ( I am a massive MMM fan so retirement means doing what you like not doing nothing)

Make sure to cycle at least weekly and preferably more. - This may lead to cycle to work unless working at a different location or needing the car to carry stuff. Not sure yet.

Enjoy my house - Continuing with simplifying and de-cluttering until what is left is all we need. This is really simple but its making so much difference to me.

Speak a little Greek to my neighbours - I can understand quite a lot now but I really need to work on speaking back. My neighbours are adorable and would love to chat more.

Import and sell a batch of Olive Oil - one of my lovely neighbours is having some trouble selling their oil, which is their main livelihood,  Or I guess they all are but only one has told me. I would like to buy some from him and ship it home to sell to friends.

Dancing - I love dancing and its good for me. Lets get it onto the calendar

Visit Newcastle - My son is in his second year at Uni and I have been up to visit him and see the place

Plan a cruise - Maybe not in the year as I have a lot of other holiday things planned but maybe set the wheels in motion

Cats fully trained - Can cats be trained? Well anyway I want them to understand the cat flap, how to sneak through windows, what is and what isn't a litter try and the  sofa is not the place to sharpen your claws.

Car - We are sharing a car. Its okay but not convenient at all. Sort this in the year.

Clear my overdraft - I tend to forget I have an overdraft because it is free but I would be happier without it so every time I get any money (i.e. pay day or expenses day) I plan to reduce it by £100.

Sleep well - I was sleeping well previously after my NLP anchoring thing. I need to get back to that.

Have a better hair cut - I am thinking have a visit to a fancy salon to get some advice and an initial cut. I cant believe its not possible for my hair to look better than it does right now!

Poker in Vegas - Fahed has two really good wins at poker over Christmas. So I struck whilst the kettle was hot (is that a saying) and said 'why don't we put all your winnings in a pot and when we have enough we can go to Vegas. You can play poker and I can do whatever else they have'. I have never been to Vegas and I think this would be fun. The pot might take a while to get full enough though.

All new underwear - Okay this is a funny one but I am thinking measured for bras. And whilst I am at it then some fancy pants too!

Kayaking - Just have a go. Looks fun and maybe I would like it.

Super club - I really fancy the idea of something like a pop up restaurant at our house or somewhere where you are, for one evening, a restaurant. I obviously delegate the cooking to Fahed but all the same, its a goal for me.

I am inspired now to look back at last years goals and see how I did.


  1. Kayaking is completely fun and you see so much more so close to the water. I just learned last summer and hope to do it every year now. We just rent kayaks as it makes more financial sense where we are since we do not own a truck. Happy New Year!

    1. I am definitely trying it now. Sounds great. I think we can rent then when we go to the other house but I will now be checking!

  2. A new income stream is always on my list and yet I haven't thought of one yet. Probably because all of my ideas take too much time and I only seem to have time for one job at a time.

    1. Its not that I am desperate but nice to build up something to do when I dont want to go to work anymore
