    Am mulling over my list too, will be making some amendments…not doing the competitions or surveys as too time consuming. Some things are going really well, some I have to wait for growing season to start, some I am realising are not things I am happy with. 

    Treating it as a positive though as it’s showing me where I need to concentrate. Thank you for the thread.
    Yep I agree, the first couple of weeks have made me realise what I can achieve, what I do and don't need to focus on and things that I'm not enjoying or dreading.  
    For me this should be an enjoyable list so I won't be shocked if I need to amend my list again lol.

    I've started running again, though I'm closer to 2.4kms rather than my 24kms target. I've made a number of new dishes that could become things I make regularly in the future. I've definitely watched a number of films start to finish. But, I can see many things in my list that I haven't even started yet.
