Alterations to July Challenge!

OK, so in my previous post I listed a challenge for myself to complete in July. Well there are a few days to go so Im getting prepared! However I want to alter the list slightly!

At number three I had "Run or cycle for 5 days out of 7 each week", well I want to change this to "Exercise 5 days out of 7 each week" ..... the reason? Well last night I tried indoor climbing for the first time, and it was amazing! I will definitely be trying it again and it is certainly a form of exercise - I was exhausted at the end of the night! So with the wording change I will be able to include it in my 5 a week!

so my list now looks like this ......

1. Blog once a week minimum (0/4)

2. Say or do one nice thing for someone each day - Im not a fan of recieving compliments so tend not to give them but I shall try my best! (0/31)

3. Exercise for 5 days out of 7 each week - arrrghhh but I need to get fit! (0/20)

4. Attempt to grow some vegetables during the month - never tried this so any tips welcome! (0/1)

5. Make three donations during the month - whether its money or clothes to the charity shop. (0/3)

I also cut all the grass in my garden yesterday and bought pots and compost for planting the veggies - I'm quite looking forward to seeing if I can get them to grow. Ive never been a gardener and have no idea what Im doing so it could be a disaster!

Until next time......

Three months!

Oh my goodness it's been three months since I blogged - shame on me!!


Don't panic I haven't been sitting around doing nothing, quite the opposite actually which is why I seem never to have time to blog. I guess I need to set myself a challange to blog at least once a week from now on!


In fact given that there is only a week left in June (doesn't time fly!) I shall set up 5 tasks starting in July!


So .....


1. Blog once a week minimum

2. Say or do one nice thing for someone each day - Im not a fan of recieving compliments so tend not to give them but I shall try my best!

3. Run or cycle for 5 days out of 7 each week - arrrghhh but I need to get fit!

4. Attempt to grow some vegetables during the month - never tried this so any tips welcome!

5. Make three donations during the month - whether its money or clothes to the charity shop.


I will do my best to let you know how I am getting on with them, plus that will help me with #1!


Now before I sign off for tonight I might as well share at least one photo so you know I have been up to something over the last three months!


Here is an Alice in Wonderland Matchbox Shrine that I made.


Ive made a lot of Alice in Wonderland things over the past few months so no doubt you'll see a few more photogrpahs!
