I must improve my Blog – are you kidding? #101in1001

Blogging challenges….

Ok when do I stop working on this challenge?

Fact is, because I have been so hell-bent on this doing this challenge, most of the others on my 101in1001 list have been neglected. Blogging is the sole reason why I have, to date, completed less than half of my challenges. Oh well, I don’t care that much – I love it.

Go to a Karaoke Bar #46 #101in1001

One of the reason I like karaoke is that generally you have to be in a good place and in a happy mood to sing. Singing, like dancing is a happy thing to do.

So when Official Theatre and Kettners asked me to sample a pre-theatre dining experience I was a little bemused not to mention delighted. A quick look at their menu on the Kettner’s website and I was sold – it looked DE-LI-CIOUS!

Get a new hobby – #101in1001

To ‘Find a New Hobby‘ was on my 101 things in a 1001 days list because for the last ten years I had dedicated a lot of time tirelessly raising money for my children’s primary school and although I loved every minute of it, I felt it was time to do something for myself. I had found my 10 years at the school fulfilling, enjoyable and social and I desperately needed something to replace a huge hole in my life.

How to be a Scoundrel – The ‘Dirty Rotten Scoundrels’ Digital Press Night

When I first got the email inviting me to a Digital Press Night at Dirty Rotten Scoundrels I genuinely thought it was a wind up. Not only is this blog in it’s infancy but I always thought it would mainly be for my own amusement and didn’t think it would get much interest.
