March Madness

My word! March is almost upon us, work is terribly busy but I trundle on.

Here is some fun Maths based very loosely on Goal 48. (To not buy any clothes for 1 year (01/01/12 to 01/01/13) that didn't quite pan out. and 50. (never stop having adventures)

I wanted this Dress from the amazing shop Deadly is the Female for £135

However my friends Suz invited me to London for this:

So instead I am taking a day off work, using the £135 to travel to London, going to the private view and staying in this hotel

Which I think you'll agree is a far more exciting adventure than buying the dress :)

My word Darlings, here we are in February! January 2013 went in the blink of an eye!

What I have achieved in January

First assessment submitted for my animal care course, intro month of CrossFit completed (we re-did our first challenge: I did it in 8 minutes 2nd time around), applied for 3 jobs, and one voluntary post at my local museum (just because it sounds interesting) Signed up to another dating website, ate Paleo (about 70/30 I'd say) organised a dinner party, had a cocktail night, signed up for 'Tough Mudder' - I'll come back to this one in another post - this certainly fulfils that resolution of surprising myself!, been to a RSRCA Trustee meeting, played poker with my friends, and put half my paycheck into savings.

I also wanted to take some time to be grateful for all the things I already have, In my quest for achievement!

1) I live in one of the most glorious cities in the world. The delightful Initforthehoney has some beautiful images of Bath from this weekend, she's right, there's something about the sunny evening light here: its the stuff of dreams. (As well as being small and cosy, fun and quirky, safe and a bit Bohemian). I've lived in some great cities in my time but Bath was were I think I really grew up, at university, so inevitably myself and my heart will always be Bath shaped!

2) I have some of the most amazing friends anyone could ever ask for in this lovely city, with friends like these: I must be doing something right!

So to summarise: I'm doing good :) achieving lots and taking time to appreciate all I have
