Tilly Bud came up with the idea of posting a weekly progress report on our attempts at fulfilling our 101
And I, of course, agreed!
My first week started off, well, to be honest not so well. Excited as I was, one week ago, various ‘mishaps’ have occurred throughout the week, stalling my progress.
This week has seen a trip in an ambulance, mass hysteria (in the confines of the family), more blood than any person needs to see in their lifetime (that goes for you too, splatter-enthusiasts), me embarrassing myself yet again, teenagers
wasting the doctors time arguing over who’ll get the first vaccination, migraine, lack of Kindergarten attendance, sock buying en masse, and either the relatively new washing machine or the extremely new tumble drier biting holes in clothes.
Now that you know that, you can be proud of me when I say:
I managed to watch three whole films, without falling asleep during any of them (which pleased my husband no end, because it meant, he did not have a soggy shoulder). The films were:
- Burke and Hare. Now I have to say, I quite like Simon Pegg, but I just found this film odd. I love comedy but I didn’t find the subject matter laugh-worthy.
- Rocky IV. No. I had never watched it before. No. I will never watch it again. No. I am not glad I watched it. Well, OK, I am a little bit. Because now I have another snippet of information to tease my husband with.
- Tangled. I’m not big on the whole cartoon thing. But I liked it. Quite funny and I had a tear in my eye at the end. No one else did, so they all laughed at me. Added bonus: hubby cringing through all musical scenes.
I also started my 30 recipes. I completed one new recipe. Haddock chowder. Delicious.
I didn’t make it to the gym this week. Because of all the chaos. Well, that’s not strictly true. I did walk through the gym. On my way to the hydrotherapy centre downstairs. OK, I went swimming. No, I didn’t swim very much. But I did float about a bit and let myself be massaged by vigorous bubbles.
Actually, I went there all on my own. As the doors opened. For a whole hour. In the warm outdoor pool, there was, at first, no other human around. And I’ll tell you: it was bliss.
