I’m well over two thirds of the way through my 101 Things in 1001 Days Challenge and this update is a bit overdue. Looking back over this list, I get the feeling that 2018 was a year for sitting on my laurels and that for I’m wondering whether a lifetime would be enough to achieve some of these, never mind about 1001 days.
However, I started the challenge and will finish the challenge even if I don’t cross every single thing off the list (although at this stage of the game, I think that’s a given!) Enthusiasm and good intentions have to count for something though!
