You know I’m quite excited at my fifty before fifty challenge :) I wonder how many I shall actually achieve.
Man said he was going to scupper my attempts by a) refusing to wear the jumper I make him; b) refusing to live with me and c) refusing to marry me within three years. I pointed out that the list said ‘get married’, it doesn’t specify to whom lol … and, let’s face it, after he’s seen the jumper, he might not want to!
Some are definitely easily achievable. Things like the castles and the churches though, that’s a lot of visiting in three years. I checked the Churches Conservation Trust website yesterday and there are 341. So far I think I’ve seen three. So, roughly, I need to visit approximately 10 per month. Hmmmm.
For the castles in England, I intend to use this list Castles in England. It lists 170. I am also going to exclude the ones I have already visited.
And I better think about what I’m going to plant in the garden to grow and then make a meal out of. Maybe I could cheat and get some chicks, rear them, gather eggs and make an omelette – but I don’t think the new neighbours would be too pleased.
I worked yesterday on my day off. It wasn’t too bad but I didn’t quite achieve what I wanted to with the new publication we are bringing out this week. But we are ahead on other stuff so maybe it will even itself out.
One the way home I stopped in Pirbright to take a few shots. It’s a lovely little village with a huge village green and a pond.
I like the way the sun bounces off the clock on the village hall in this one.
And I don’t know what this is but I like the colours of this one too.
I’m getting a cold. I feel the beginnings of a sore throat and cough coming on. This is not good timing for my two week’s off and I am the world’s worst patient … cross, grumpy and miserable. Poor Man lol.
