Life and all the shananigins!

101 things in 1001 Days

Ok this is exactly what it says on the tin!

As a member of British Mummy Bloggers I came across another blogging mummy who is doing the Day Zero Project and found it quite an interesting idea, so have decided to give it a go! The aim of the game (and I am viewing it as a game as my competitive nature will kick in and I’m more likely to succeed), is to think of 101 things you would like to achieve in 1001 days. Yep it’s as simple as that……….or not!

I sat down on Thursday and began writing my list, yet here I am on Sunday and I still need about 10 things before I can publish it and crack on with it. The first few ideas came easily, with my new job just round the corner and a change in the permanent normality of my life I think it’s the ideal time to take stock and evaluate what I want to achieve in the next 2.75 years of my life. So as you will see when I do publish, some of my ideas are practical ones, things that I NEED to do and just put them off all the time. Some of them are things that I would love to become normal activities in mine and/or the girls lives and adding them to this challenge should help me form the habits. Others are “spiritual” or “emotional”, things to do in order to make me feel more content, or just feel more important. They are all things I don’t do now, or have tried and failed with in the past, but some of the things I have been saying I would do for a while and just never have. So take a look and see what you think. You can also visit to find out more, and let me know if you give it a go too – I can cross that off my list then as I plan to get someone else on board!

Oh and of course watch this space as to how I get on along the way!

  1. Hiya, I found your blog via BMB. This is a great idea, however I’m not that brave. Great tip about junkmail…I’m off to check it out shortly. We do have a no junkmail sign on our door but people don’t seem to take any notice. Have you read Mike Gayle’s To Do List? Our book club read it last year and enjoyed it.

    • Go on be brave! I must admit I had to convince myself, but 1001 days is 2.75 years so a bit more realistic time scale to do something like this.
      I just got a confirmation thing about the junk mail and hey I think it may just work lol!
      Havn’t read that book will hav to check it out – then write a review for another of the items on my list!!!
