101 in 1001


Since I’ve been loitering around a few blogs recently, I’ve noticed that many have started a 101 in 1001 days list. And now I’ve been inspired to start my own. It all started off at Day Zero and the trend has caught on. Not only is wishcake doing this, but Steph and Morgan too.

I promise I’m not going to be disappointed if I don’t complete it, but it’s a challenge I’ve set for myself and only me. It’s probably the motivation I needed to do some of the things I’ve been putting off recently. Plus I love making lists so that’s as good an excuse as any!

So, here goes…
