Celebrating Milestones - 101 in 1001 Update

I can't believe it's almost August already. When your work day seems to drip by, it's always a shock to look at the calendar and realise how far along in the year you are.

Having started my 101 in 1001 challenge on the 1st June 2012 I'm 421 days (as of today) & I can't quite believe that we are still sticking with it, and in fact are progressing pretty well. I admit it, I'm a great starter of things, but trying to complete them eludes me more than I should admit (except Ice Cream, but then no-one ever has trouble finishing Ice Cream, right?)


With 42% of the time elapsed, and with 34% completed plus another 10% in progress, it's coming on nicely. It comes into it's own on rainy weekends (though we aren't due to have any of those dpon woohoo!)

I have still have a few of the biggies to complete - Hot Air Ballooning, Sky Diving, holiday with my siblings, walk behind a waterfall, swim 50 lengths and cook an entire cookbook. Does anyone know of any really short cookbooks?


Surprisingly, one of the hardest ones to complete has been booking in to donate blood. It's really tough to find a day that they are open and they are nearby. In additional they only take blood until around 4pm. Combine this with flying an average office desk, doesn't really make it very easy.


I've also been looking through my 'Improve the 'How Foodie Are You' score by 15 items. Well, it seems that whoever wrote the list of unusual food items added several in twice so now it's missing 8 items. I would love your suggestions to add! Comment below, Tweet me or pop me a message on Google+.

Did you know 421 days is 36,374,400 seconds?

  1. Women's Weekly publishes some very thin cookbooks, with a quite wide range of themes. There's a store that only sells cookbooks in Notting Hill where you can definitely find them ( that's where I got mine). The place is called Books for Cooks - let me know if you ever pop there, it's also fairly close to my house!

  3. I will admit, I was at the Lambeth Country Fair last week and my bff and I went up and had a massive rant at them about how while they CLAIM to be desperate for blood, it's impossible to actually get there. If they're so desperate, why do they never have any appointments????

    1. I just don't understand either. Sure, nurses are super busy and at a premium but...
