Gosh 5/6ths of the way through the year, and we are leaving Autumn now the clocks have changed and heading towards Winter. Time to update my progress on my 15 for 2015.
15 minutes walk x 4 times a week. Here stepping out with my beautiful granddaughter at a Butterfly World and Children’s Farm at the start of the month. My kind of pace with a poorly heel, and I promise not to mention the sad state of my heel again. Anyway still trying to walk regularly.
14 bags to a charity shop- another one gone, 10 in total. Still plenty of time to achieve this
Butterfly at Butterfly World
12 meeting ups with friends- Met up with my friend Jane, Really appreciated how important it is to make time to see friends, in the hustle and bustle of life. 9 so far.
11 New savoury Recipes tried. YES! Two more this month. Tried a new gambit this month and had a go at replicating meals we had eaten out. First up was Chicken in bacon and creamy leek sauce, nearly right, and delicious, and a celeriac quiche which Mr E had eaten this month whilst staying with his brother ,in a London vegetarian restaurant, apparently it tasted right but I thought it bland. But no worries total of new recipes tried 12. Brother does not live in London restaurant!!
Dinosaur in the Butterfly World.
10 handwritten letters to friends- one sent this month, but two sent to me. I love the Postman when he brings me a proper letter. 8 in total now
9 handmade cards made and sent- already achieved
8 sewing or embroidery projects completed. 2 more done this month, 7 in total
Another dinosaur in the Butterfly World
7 new yarns- still at two and not likely to change
6 trips to museums etc- achieved already
5 projects for Charity-Little hats sent for Age UK campaign- total now is 4
4 new walks- I have decided to count the walk around the arboretum as a new walk as I had not been before, we were walking for at least three hours.So that means I have achieved this too!
Little Miss F feeding the goats
3 craft workshops- so not happening, can’t find anything I would like to do at a price I can afford. Most unusual for me , so I am tweaking this one with two months to go, to be three projects based on craft workshops I have attended in the past, and believe me there are plenty to choose from!
2 new cities visited and 1 railway journey, already achieved. And this month NO Impulse Purchases.
I am starting to think about my challenges for next year. I wonder how you have done this year and might you try 16 for 2016 next year? One last picture
