Ooops, I didn’t get round to writing last week’s update so this is a special double edition – twice the list fun for your money!

It’s been a fortnight of almosts; I almost managed to give blood but they didn’t have any spare appointments (honestly! That’s not just an excuse!), I almost wore a poppy for Remembrance Sunday but it fell off my coat last Saturday night and I almost wore another pair of shoes but the near-constant rain meant they weren’t a practical choice.


In all my autumnal walk and joining the National Trust excitement I almost forgot to blog about visiting a National Trust property which started them both off in the first place! I like looking at pretty things, big houses and some nice gardens once in a while so I’d been meaning to get out and about and snoop around some National Trust places, hence this early addition to the list.

I got in from my autumnal walk to find an email from my friend Abi suggesting some new things to add to my list. There are some good ones in there but one that caught my eye was ‘join the National Trust’ as I’d actually joined a few hours earlier. Freaky! I love accidental list things!

I currently live in a city which, though very beautiful, isn’t the greenest of places. I see most of my ‘nature’ from the bus on the way to work and from the window of my desk which overlooks a park. As autumn has descended I’ve been looking wistfully over at the orange trees and feeling a childish desire to kick through leaves.

This week has been super duper hectic at work, I started my course and have had a million and one other things going on so haven’t managed to make much progress on the list. I have however been wittering on about it to lots of people and I’ve started recruiting volunteers to do list-y things with me.

I’m starting to get into my stride with list things and have started making plans for some things and ignoring some of them and hoping they’ll go away! I figured I should get cracking on some of the year-long challenges (rather than fail by default!) so I spent last Sunday wrestling with the Sunday papers and buying a houseplant.
