101 in 1001 update #42/43!!
Ah, 2 weeks 0f updates! What a way to start the new year by crossing something off my list!! Another task complete: #89 - Go 1 day without complaining about anything. Was not as hard as I thought it might be, could be good timing on that one. On to the partial updates:
Celebrating Yule brings #100 - Celebrate Ostara, Beltane, Midsummer, Lughnasadh, Mabon, Samhain, Yule & Imbolc at least once for the duration of the 1001 days up to 4/8 - I'm half way there there on this one!
#14 - Write something about all the films I see (for the first time) throughout these 1001 days with reviews for: Little Miss Sunshine and Dreamgirls. I had really hoped to be up to day by the end of Dec but alas, I'm still about 40 films behind. I actually found myself hesistating to watch something new because of that, which entirely wasn't the point of this one.
#31 - Read 1 fashion magazine a month - done for Dec 06. UK version of Cosmo. Technically not really a fashion mag but I looked at all the clothes with a fashionista eye, so I'm counting it.
#38 - Keep a plant alive from 'The Auction' from one year to the next - update: They are still alive! My English begonia isn't so happy though... the leaf is turning brown and all the little shoots kinda withered away. So sad.
#21 - Save a part of every paycheque - done!
#94 - Read every day - done! Still reading and loving 'Artemis Fowl' by Eoin Colfer. It's been a while since I've been this captivated by a book. Thanks Jamie for lending it to me!
