++++edit 08012018 – so far I have done a couple of these – dancing in the rain, zip lining and adopting an orangutan. I have also seen the fireworks at Poole Quay and got more into both blogging and running. I am learning to drive (slowly) and feel like that’s something to get Done this year (i’m hoping anyway)


++++edit18122018 – ok so the year has gone well so far, I’ve gone to a couple of conventions now, spent the year sending out Pratchett books as part of #PratchettPostal – 110 at last count which is simply stunning, i’ve sort of started to prepare myself for next years challenges and am accruing more people into my penpal group. So far, so good!

Lots to do and look forward to 🙂
