When I searched of a definition on Google this is what I found .....
Pottering - "Occupying oneself in a desultory or pleasant way"
Desultory - I didn't much like the sound of that, but thought I'd have a look and see what that meant too .....
Desultory - "Lacking a plan, purpose or enthusiasm"
Oh dear! Desultory is most definitely NOT what I am looking for from my new life.
As I have always been big on having a plan or a purpose and would, generally speaking, consider myself enthusiastic, I felt the need to record some personal goals for my new life. Not work type, must be SMART kind of goals, just things that would give me a plan and sense of purpose that I could get enthusiastic about, so in no particular order of priority, here goes .....
- Start a blog
- Be more creative
- Learn to take better photos
- Get fitter
- Keep in touch
- Make my money go further
- Be happy
- Add value to Society
- Keep on top of general household and garden activities
- Have less stress
There was another definition that I came across for the word 'pottering'. Probably easier to show you than to try and explain it.
Happy Pottering everyone!!
