I’ve done a little better this month than I did last month, but still got lots to do if I want to get them all ticked off by the end of the year.
- Floating in a floatation tank (I’m hoping to do this in London during the February half term)
- Reading at least 10 books from the BBC Big Read list (if I read 10 a year, I’ll have the whole 200 knocked off in the next 12-13 years!) – still haven’t done anything about this one
- Taking at least one photo every day of the year (this will improve my photography skills, be a photo-diary of ‘year in my life’, and help me to learn to use my new camera) – I took lots of photos during the first week of June whilst I was walking the coast path, but not many since
- Coming up with a fitness plan and sticking to it (the start of my training for Kilimanjaro, though I may not actually climb it for several years yet) –having not walked much this year so far, I did lots when I was in Devon
- Leading at least 4 of my own walks (good practice for my walking group leader’s qualification) – not led any walks, but at least I’ve done some walking again and signed up to work on the DofE
- Buying another house (need to get my finances in order first)
- Learning to use at least 3 new pieces of technology or computer programmes (not counting my new camera) – I’ve bought a Kindle and am currently getting to grips with everything it can do. I’ve also recently aquired a tablet computer.
- Doing a writing course (depends on the length of the course whether I’d complete it in the year or not)
- Getting at least one piece of writing published (paid or unpaid, as long as someone else makes the decision to publish it and it’s not self-published)
- Making a start on sorting out my photos (putting the prints that are currently still stuffed in packets into albums and getting all my photos scanned into the computer – no way will this be completed in a year, but I’ll feel good even if I get started on it)
- Buying a car/van that I can sleep in (and doing any necessary conversions/adaptations) – now I’ve spent a week camping with my van (I was sleeping in my tent, but had everything in the van), I have some good ideas of how I want to convert it
- Getting into cycling (even if it’s just short cycles along decent paths) – I’m seriously thinking of taking my bike to the Outer Hebrides
