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!
In someone’s life, there are many defining factors that shape who you are. Factors can be positive or negative, people, events, experiences or health to name just a few.
Approaching 50 (have I mentioned that before?) I do wonder what the key factors have been in my life so far? Obviously besides my wonderful family, who mean everything to me and are a constant, I guess I can split my life into three very distinctive chunks.
I hope that you are well and are looking forward to the New Year. Each year we write one of those ‘dreadful’ round robins to our friends and family, here is an edited version.
2018 has been a pretty defining year for us with some huge changes. The major ones being Charlie (previously known as Charlotte) studying and subsequently passing her A-Levels then leaving for University and Terry’s mum, Sheila, passing away in August. She is sadly missed.
As predicted the first 10% was a lot easier to accomplish than the next, particularly when 2018 has been a disaster on the challenge front as well as the blogging front.
I am now ready with my next update for my 101in1001, I have finally reached 20%.
You can read my complete list of things to try and accomplish before July 2020 here. here.
Go on an organised tour of a town or city (#80) with Dominic
Crossing off two challenges at once is a great feeling but to do three in a day is quite amazing.
Two challenges were planned and one was a complete surprise (more about that in another blog).
I rarely spend any length of time with Dominic one of my sons. For no other reason than I am either at poolside with his brother (a keen swimmer) or I am busy with work, daughter, blogging etc. His life is just as busy. We rarely have a completely free day so when one came up I decided to make the most of it.
Dal Nanno, Crawley Down | Restaurant Review
Tucked away on a route through the village of Crawley Down is a little Italian restaurant called Dal Nanno (By Grandfather). Opened in 2013, I have been hearing for ages how good it is so to celebrate our daughter finishing her A-Levels we thought we would give it a go.
The restaurant is cosy, and extremely popular so the tables are cheek by jowl and instead of being atmospheric it is fairly noisy. However saying that, it is tastefully decorated and oozes Italian charm.
