Still plodding along and making some progress having completed five months. I'm in a bit of a down patch with regard to feeling liking I'm making adequate progress, possibly because I've made some of the tasks so big before I've achieved them. Guess I just need to knuckle down and get on with some of the ones I haven't started yet. I've only included the goals that I've started in this month's post.
