Monthly Archives: March 2012

As promised a new weekly update and I’m very pleased to announce that some progress has been made. Thanks to last week’s resolutions and my friend S, I will be heading to Somerset next week to hopefully witness a birth of a lamb, this lambing season!

I’ve been advised to take warm clothes, a book and a tent as births don’t really announce themselves ahead of time. I have the first two but if anyone has a small tent in London area, they’d be willing to lend me – please let me know.

I will also take my camera to try and provide photographic evidence of this challenge. No promises though, rumour goes my dad took his very fancy camera to my birth but no pictures were taken until far after. ( Not sure if this was because of his shock or my mother’s :))

Fingers crossed that it will actually happen during the time I’m at the farm, you never know we can only hope.

So glad that this project is moving now. there are more challenges in the pipe line waiting to be dealt with. However let’s take it one step at the time: Somerset, here I come.

PS: It worries me that, when searching for lamb pictures, lamb dishes come up before the lovely image attached…


…without much progress. Hmpf. I know this project is only meant to be a detour and not to take up my life but I need to start detouring as it is March already.

It is officially Spring, which means it is the perfect time to tick ” Witness a birth” of the list. Need to find a place where they are lambing or where eggs in incubator get transformed into baby chicks. It is not impossible, anyone with a pet about to give birth – let me know!

Clearly, I need to get on this with a bit more vigour than I have managed til now. Maybe it is time to install a weekly blog on this project. I have nine more months to make these 12 challenges happen! It should not be impossible but it is heading that way if I don’t start to get myself organised.

What is easy to organise:

– Photo album: halfway there, just not finished yet.
– Baking croissants, this really can be done in a weekend.
– Practise the harmonica, just need to start.
– Plan to go to the dance lessons already purchased

Weekly messages it is then. Shall we try every Wednesday? Yes Let’s! I hear you all cry.

Wonderful. Next week Wednesday: another update. Hopefully more newsworthy than this one.

I’ll be here. Will you be here too?
