Falling Forward: A Girl & Her Lists

101 in 1001 – October Update

Posted by in 101 in 1001, Projects

Completed Goals:

27. Donate clothes I know I will never wear – finally clearing out all the old stuff I know I’ll never fit into again, or just plain don’t like anymore. No more baggage!

70. Keep on top of the washing – We have a new system, and it’s working well, so I’m going to consider this one done.

61. Do something memorable for my birthday – I did this actually, the trip to London is burnt into  my brain, hehe. Next year I might try something a little different tho :)

38. Buy new perfume – Paul Smith  Women. Mm.

42. No fizzy drinks for a month – I’m pretty sure I lasted longer than a month, and I actually don’t enjoy fizzy drinks that much anymore. Result.

68. Get 50+ views on at least 200 of my 365 portraits on flickr – this is completed and I am so glad!

86. Clear up my acne – you know what, I think I’m going to mark this done, because altho my skin isn’t clear, I definitely no longer have acne. Result!

That’s it for October, but there will be more coming soon :)

Sorry Kidlets

Hey kids! I’m sorry I’ve not been around, I’m sure the three of you who have this on google reader have really missed me 😉

I don’t have a good excuse really, just a myriad of bad ones. The laptop I’m using is incredibly slow, I work two jobs, I’ve been knitting lately and I’m just kinda tired.

But, I promise I’ll be better. Not starting right now, because I’m about to watch a film, but soon 😉

In other news, I had all my hair cut off, and I LOVE IT.

Round two of the bloggers! (since I didn’t finish it last time, lol)

What Katie Does – Katie takes beautiful photos, has a gorgeous kitty and is ridiculously talented. A pleasure to read.

The Small Object – I’ve been reading Sarah’s blog for years now – she makes the sweetest things and has a really beautiful outlook on life :)

Not Martha – Not Martha is another blog I’ve been reading for what feels like forever. Megan (I think that’s her name!) is so crafty and ingenious, definitely a daily inspiration.

Everything Was Beautiful – The beautiful Sarah, who takes the most wonderful photos.

Degrees Latitude – Hi Jackie! The original blogger, Jackie has a fantastic illustrating talent, and a really sweet writing style.

Alright Tit – The delectable Lisa. The webs top Cancer Bitch according to Stephen Fry 😉

101 in 1001

Posted by in 101 in 1001, Projects

On the 1st of January this year, I commited myself to another 101 in 1001. The premise is simple, 101 items, to do in 1001 days. I decided to move it over here as I originally had it on my livejournal which I really barely use anymore.

Here’s what I’ve completed since I last updated it:

14. Attach flower holders to the wall – Completed June 2009
19. Clean the inside of my car – Completed September 2009
48. Get a cat – Completed August 2009
51. Grow a full salad (lettuce, tomatoes, cucumber) – Completed July 2009
81. Get a cineworld unlimited card – Completed October 2009
53. Try and journal more – Completed August 2009

which gives me 28 completed out of 101.
It’s a fun project to be doing, I think now I have it here I’ll remember to try and do it more! If you want to help me out with any of my tasks, let me know :)

Introducing: Grace In Small Things

Posted by in A Little Conversation, Grace In Small Things

So, inspired by Jackie, someone I have known online for many years through many incarnations, I have decided to start my own Grace In Small Things Project. Every Saturday I will write a list of five small things that make me smile :) I’ll try and include a photo every week too, if I can.

1. Making lists (how appropriate!)
2. Meeting old friends
3. Free muffins
4. Making friends in my new job
5. Piles of crisp, fallen leaves.

I know Jackie was inspired by schmutzie.com, both their lists are worth checking out. Let me know if you start your own! :)
