The One With 101 More Things!

MissE’s arrival had led to lots of “when the kids are …. years old, we must do ….” conversations. Which has led me to re-visit my original 101 things list, and decide to write a second list to focus on.

My list is almost complete (see below) I’ve left space for a few things to develop over time, and some spaces for my closest friends to fill in too.

I’m starting my 101 things on 31st December 2016. My 1001 days will end on Saturday 28th September 2019.

There’s a lot of travel on this list, some of which is planning only as finances and school will no doubt limit my progress in this area!

As before, I will try to blog a bit about my progress….

So, here’s my new list (so far there are 87 things)
