101 Things in 1001 Days | Update

Good afternoon, lovely blog person, or “prevening” if we’re being more specific!

It’s been a while since I caught you up with my 101 Things in 1001 Days shenanigans, and I guess you’ve missed out on quite a few bits of awesomeness. I apologise. My last update was in October, when I tried to conquer my fear of heights (and horrifically failed) by going on a Ferris Wheel at the fair!

My God, that was a huge mistake…Matt had to flag down the fair workers and get them to stop the wheel so I could get off… Never again.

Since my last post, I’ve checked off lots of new things on my 101 Things in 1001 Days challenge. Some goods ones, too.

So, what’s new?


Me and Matt have been getting our film boots back on, after an embarrassingly long time away from our film friends. We ticked off a few movies for the “watch a film I’ve never seen before starting with each letter of the alphabet” task, including Deadpool (awesome film), and all of Daniel Craig’s Bond movies (so great). We also finally watched Avengers: Age of Ultron, but it was definitely worth the wait because it was a bloody fantastic film.

The Theatre:

In December and January, we were writing paid reviews for plays, so luckily I got to tick off my “watch a play” task! I saw Sleeping Beauty, Snow White and Miss Nightingale (an amazing play about sex, scandal and lies in 1940’s wartorn London).

Our Fort:

Now for the one that I’m most excited about… we built a blanket fort in the living room, and had a night full of sweets, beer, TV shows and games in our little Valentines blanket heaven. To be completely honest, blanket fort is a bit of a fib. It was more of a bed-sheet-held-up-with-string-and-nails fort. We also had to use my desk chair, a wooden table and a clothes horse to hold the thing up and support it throughout the night.

The fort was a fantastic way to spend Valentine’s Day (eve) though and it was definitely worth the hassle in the end.

If you’re not already, I also highly recommend setting yourself a challenge like this. It has been a fantastic way to kind of force myself into doing different, new and exciting things. And, I get to share all of the new things I do with you. Win-win.

  1. LOL…great little shot of the cat eyeing a way to get up to the top of the cabinet. πŸ˜‰

    May 2018…good grief, I can’t even think ahead to May of this year! πŸ˜›

    Yeah, the Daniel Craig Bond films are the best in a long time! And I envy you a little for getting to go to the theatre; I haven’t been in ages.

    Just wondering, how did you come upon this challenge?

    • There was a string dangling down, and she was very eager to make her way to it :p.
      It’s a good job it is so far in the future, because there are a lot of holidays on that list!!
      Before December, I hadn’t been for a very, very long time either. I forgot how brilliant it is. The atmosphere is fantastic. I can’t wait to go again. Do you like close by a theatre?

      I was actually planning a “bucket list” type post a while ago, when I happened up the Day Zero website. The 101 Things in 1001 Days challenge is their most famous, so I wanted to join the club! I love lists, and I love doing new things, so it was a perfect combination for me. πŸ™‚


      • There are several theatres in our area, as we live by a university town, and their presence makes a big contribution to things in the community like the arts. I went to a dance recital in December, which sort of counts, but also not, since it was a schoolchildren’s performance in an auditorium.:)

    • Oh, that’s a tough one! I guess a lot of them are on my 101 Things in 1001 Days challenge, because I’m at the tipping point age where it’s all going down (graduation, job, wedding etc.) How about you?


      • Well, I wouldn’t say I have a bucket list as such… It’s more definite things that I know I want to do…not just for the sake of saying I had done them, but because of the long-term fulfillment they’ll bring to my life.

        High up here is going back to England. Ideally not just for a visit every year, but for a *while* (yes, becoming independently wealthy and acquiring property in the British Isles is also in the clouds floating around my head). I want my son to have the chance to know my in-laws better, and to take him to places he decides he wants to see, as well as going back to some of my favorites. (Ex: see The Invisible Moth “Highlights of Travels Past”)

        I’m also bound and determined to own my own dance studio, and get my self-publishing under way… (when children are older and less needy) πŸ˜›

    • I’m sorry it took me so long to reply. I went on holiday at the weekend and completely forgot about this comment.

      I’d love to see your list if you decide to go ahead with one! It’s made the weekends much more fun, knowing we can tick something off my list :).

  4. Hi, I spent all weekend doing my taxes….boring and stressful but they have to get done. Now, I am working on an unexpected trip to France. An opportunity fell in my lap and I want to take advantage of it.
    How was your holiday?
