Watch all Oscar Nominated films of 2018 #101in1001 #51

Definitely a task that wouldn’t have been completed without being in self isolation for 10 days. It took three and a half years to watch two of the films, I watched the other 6 in three weeks 🙂

As you know my true love is theatre, I much prefer live entertainment to screens, I don’t really watch TV at all. I rarely get invested in a series because it is unlikely that I will finish it.

I do like to watch films because they have a beginning, middle and end but don’t often get the time , my go-to is comedies or anything light-hearted hence this challenge, it was to take me out of my comfort-zone a little.

Thank goodness for Netflix.

Go to Borough Market. #26 #101in1001

Go to Borough Market was the 26th challenge in my 101 challenges to complete in 1001 days which ends on the 20th July.

It is another challenge I feel as though I don’t deserve to tick off as complete but as it is technically done and I won’t get the chance to enhance my experience before the end of my 1001 days, I am marking it as complete.

It has mean however it was impossible to complete a few of the tasks but i intend to do them one day – as soon as we can move freely again.

Back into water after a long dry spell.

Wah-hey finally finally, the government has announced that pools can reopen again after the Coronavirus lockdown. Leisure Centres can prepare to open from 25th July. This will be a godsend for many.

Leisure centres were told to close on Friday 20th March three days before the country was told to Stay at home, save lives and protect the NHS. We knew it was coming, but it still didn’t prepare us for the disappointment.

Completing my 101in1001 – in a quandary.

In 2017 I signed up for my second 101in1001 challenge. The idea is to set yourself 101 achievable challenges (not as easy as it sounds) and then complete them in 1001 days (about 3 years).

You can log and tick off your challenges at Three years is a great time frame as it gives room for maneuver should life hit you in the face.

Here are the challenges I set myself Sammi’s 101 Challenges
