Driving an alternative mode of transport.
When I put this challenge on my 101in1001 list I had no idea
what it would mean. A tractor? An offroad vehicle, an horse and cart? I wanted
to keep the challenge open.
When I got a cash Christmas present from my boss, I didn’t
want to bank it (such presents always get spent on groceries) I wanted to make
sure I did something special. I looked down the Red Letter Day and Virgin
experience websites and one thing jumped out at me. A Segway ride for two. I
had never ridden a Segway and thought that it sounded fun and bonus! It would
tick of one of my challenges.
Photoshop requires you to be creative and design savvy, two
things I am not. I spent a year miserably failing in a photoshop based job. I
think the only thing I learned to efficiently in that time was crop things
It was one of my goals to extend my knowledge, but it has not been easy.
1: Photoshop is expensivvvvve. Spare cash I have not.
2: Beginner’s photoshop tuition is expensive and you need to dedicate time to it. Time I have not.
3: There are lots of YouTube videos explaining various techniques but they rarely start from the very basics.
I don’t really consider myself a blogger, I have no intention of perusing it as a ‘career’ or monetising it. I just enjoy blogging when I can, with no pressure.
This blog is a pleasure to write, when I have time. I have SOOOO many plans for it. Recording my 101 challenges, blogging about my plastic free struggle, uploading my holiday diaries, recording (reviewing) the books I have read and much much more.
I wrote religiously in a diary for many many years, and a blog seemed like an interesting progression to make, putting my random thoughts not on paper but… ‘out there’. BUT….
I have just logged into the Day Zero Project website and I was shocked to discover that I am well over half way through my 1001 days!
I apparently have 480 days left until I finish on July 29th 2020.
So much for completing half of my challenges by now…..
And so much for writing a half way through post on Day 500,
this will have to do!
Always a good challenge to take you out of your cooking comfort zone.
I made this challenge harder for myself by trying to cook new recipes either by using a new technique or a new ingredient. This is more difficult than you think, most recipes use basic techniques, hence my challenge of randomly opening a cookbook doesn’t count, it was delicious and new but just a different take on a roast dinner.
We had pizzas on Monday and as the pepperoni and chicken one
was going fast and the vegetable one was going spare I tucked into that. I
realised that I hadn’t eaten any meat for the last 24hours so better late than
never I decided to tick off another one of my 101 challenges, to be meat free
for a week.
