In January, I wrote a list of 43 things to do while I am 43. Today I saw that Katrina has written a update of her 40@40 list, which prompted me to take a look at my list as frankly I had forgotten all about it. I am pleased to see that I can cross a few off....and I also notice that in as short a period as three months since I wrote the list, I don't even want to do some of the things on it anymore. Am I really that fickle? Yep.
Here's the update then:
Learn to crochet and make something. Hmm. Well I TRIED to learn, and failed miserably. I was the only person in the class that didn't seem to able to do it. Must do better. Or give up.
Pass ECDL Level Two. Unlikely, as I've just given up going to the classes, for various reasons.
Take part in an online photography course or challenge. Signed up for Picture Inspiration.
Renew my passport. I was planning to do this so we could
Go abroad for a holiday. We had a change of plan and are honeymooning in a beautiful little cottage near Bath instead.
Visit five places in London I have not been to before. A few weeks ago I went to the Womens Library for an exhibition of domestic crafts. One down, four to go!
Take part in 30 days of yoga. More difficult than I anticipated, with my health issues. I took part, though not for 30 days.
Get a dining table, and have people over for dinner. My parents have offered to buy the table for our wedding present :-)
Try 10 new recipes. One so far, North African Lemon chicken. My laptop is in for repair, and the recipe is on it. If my data survives the repair, I'll post it at a later date.
Keep a record of the books I read. I am doing that here on the blog, in the sidebar.
Write real letters. I've written a couple this year, and received some myself, as well as some lovely unexpected parcels from two friends. I love real mail!
Work my way through my French course. This was in preparation for our honeymoon in France, so no urgency now. I would still like to do it someday.
Sell some books on Amazon/ebay and
Have a weekend away with the proceeds. I have been doing this, and so far there is about £100 in the weekend away fund.
Not too bad an effort then, for three months in.
