In the last few weeks before getting back to work again, I’ve managed to tick off quite a few of my tasks on my 101 in 1001 days. There’s still a lot to go, although as quite a few were ongoing ones, they’re going well but obviously I can’t tick them off…note to self, choose small chunks of time to enable faster achievement.
So what’ve I managed to update?
9 Create a pin map of everywhere I’ve been in the UK I’ve used Google maps, and it’s really satisfying to see everywhere (well not everywhere as that would be ridiculous detail, but all the cities, towns, important landscapes) I’ve been. I can’t understand people who’ve never seen anything in their own country. 20 Clear out my wardrobe Finally have slightly more space and much less clothing piled up and not in the wardrobe/drawers. Made some money on ebay, and donated 4 bags to charity as well. And 1 bag left for a potential swishing party that my friend’s holding later in the year. 21 Sort out and get rid of my unwanted DVDs Well, they’re cleared out into bags, some have been sold, still need to try somewhere else then the rest will be freecycled. 41 Get my eyebrows threaded. Tried out the stall in town. Yep, it was painful, my eyes were watering, but I didn’t have red skin afterwards while walking round town (so no obvious ‘she’s had her brows done’ looks like I expected), and I have great looking brows for the first time ever. I’m a convert. 46 Take part in secret santa. For the first time in about 10 years I’ve taken part in 2 secret santa’s this year. One with my online baby group and one with my NCT group. So much fun, and great presents given & received. No embarrassing ones which was what had put me off doing them with work!
Things which are going well and progressing:
17 Get back to pre-baby weight – diet has started again after a bad couple of months pre-Christmas
36 Complete a 365 day photo challenge. Still going on this one, I just need to organise all the photos I have, and make sure that I still remember to take photos on work days even though there’s no daylight at home and not much time available to play with N before and after nursery drop off
37 Read 2 books a month. Pleased to be back reading lots
85 Watch 26 movies I’ve never seen starting with each letter of the alphabet. Still trying to clear the freeview recorder, but have made some good progress on this with about 8 films watched.
I’m pretty pleased with how things are going. I just need to find a way to keep the momentum going now I’m back at work after maternity leave.
