WOW. We are half-way through the year. 6 months since we set those New Years resolutions, 6 months since we came back refreshed from a Christmas break and 6 months worth of kicking goals. Our 'winter wins' board is filling up and boy oh boy some goals have well and truely been ticked off, for some of you this may be the time of year where you think "oh sh*T" I haven't done the things I wanted to. The good news is you still have 6 months of 2021 to go!
