101 in 1001

This is something that I have been threatening to do for a while and today I sat down and with the ‘help’ of my family I came up with my list of 101 things to complete in 1001 days.

I will attempt to blog about the challenges when I complete them and give updates on how I am feeling, this is all new to me so I ask you to be patient, I also ask you to be encouraging so please feel free to send in suggestions about how I can complete my challenges.

The aim quite simply is to give myself new challenges and a new focus and get myself out of a bit of a rut I have found myself in.
