1st Update - Week One

So thats the end of week one of my 1001 challenge.

I am quite pleased with my progress so far as I have managed to cross off 3 of my tasks.

40 - Hold a snake skin (with gloves!) - This was a BIG task for me as I am really, really scared of snake skin, highly irrational I know! I am so pleased I faced the fear as I dont want to pass on my fears to my son Aidan.

64 - Halve my shoe collection - I was very strict with myself and if I hadnt worn them for a while then I listed them on Ebay or donated them to charity. Now I just have to be good and not buy more!!

65 - Sort through my bedroom chest of drawers - Again I was very strict and ended up with 2 bin bags full of clothes to take to the charity shop.

Ive also managed to start a few more of my tasks:

9 -I have begun reading from the BBC 100 greatest reads lists,

5 - My veggies are growing nicely in my garden,

19 - I have looked into Giving blood again but I am not able to for 4 more months as I have not been long had the Emergency Caesaerean.

51 - I have started leaving little notes in the Library books I have borrowed saying " I hope you are enjoying the book"

49 - I have registered on the Olympic website to receive ticketing news.

67 - I have been watching episodes of the Secret Millionaire for free on 4 on Demand.

91 - I am knitting some squares to do my share, I need to make 24 6X6 squares to sew together for a blanket for a child in Soweto.

98 - We went and had a family portrait taken and I am very pleased wth the results as the photos were lovely.

There are a couple more that I will be working on everyday, things like clear my debt and improve my credit rating. I will only blog about these once I complete them.

Thats was a bit of a boring, matter of fact blog so must try harder next time!!

  1. Pips mum, sounds like you are making good progress. blogs don't always have to be fun and exciting, but are a great way of recording your progress. I think i tend to waffle too much on my blog!!


Thank you so much for your comments, I love to read them :-)
