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.

However very happy to answer any further questions about any of the places I visited and what I did. So feel free to ask away or send me a message on Twitter or Instagram.

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.

My #101in1001 challenge 60% update

Day Zero Project

The first time I did a 101 challenge, I manged 60% of them, this time it is a miracle I have got as far as I have, the Coronavirus lockdown put the final nail in the coffin, although saying that, there was no way I would have completed them, I just wanted to beat the score from last time.

Neeeearly there.

Here is a record of ten challenges I have managed to tick off.

Visit 5 Museums / Art Galleries #101in1001 #77

A least 6 have been completed. I am pretty impressed with that! A real mixture of places as well. We are so lucky living in a country that is so rich in culture and history. Taking the time to visit and learn is one of my favourite things to do.

Here are the places we went during the 101 challenges timeframe.

My #101in1001 challenge 50% update

Day Zero Project

This is pants pants pants. First I had to take six months out of my challenge because of family problems, then money was a constraint, then my work increased so I had no time, and now… Covid!

I was destined never to finish these challenges.

I have until the end of July I can do some of the things at home, *watch this space* but chances are I shall be completing even less challenges than the first time. Ho hum.

Here is a record of ten challenges I have managed to tick off.
