There It Went......

So my week off, went faster than an X Factor's contestant's career and here I am, back at work tomorrow, feeling that I haven't had any time off at all! The week off has been a bit of a strange one. I've caught up with a few friends, seen Somers Town again (still as brilliant second time round), saw the new Guy Ritchie film, got drenched a few times and yesterday my husband was in a car crash (thankfully okay, but the car is no longer). Needless to say, I'm a little down in the dumps at the moment and when I feel like that, I tend to look at my list, to try and motivate myself into feeling better.
I want something to happen with this list, but I'm not sure what exactly! Perhaps a bit like when I got the call from Radio Nottingham, who were so excited about the whole project and what I was going to do for them. I've considered approaching a TV company to do a documentary, but because of the length of time still running (approx. 3 years) I don't know if any would be interested.
I currently have three tasks ongoing/in the pipeline:- reading BBC Top 100 Reads (just got out War and Peace and Bleak house from the library, which both look like doorstops!), writing my novel and a trip to NYC. I now can add a fourth - a ride in a hot air balloon, which I purchased for my hubbie's birthday and will attempt to do in October. A fifth would be perhaps the You Tube video and a sixth will be either learn a new language or learn the tango - if I can't get in at night class for beginners French, then I'm going to sign up for a dance class. As a side line, I'm also going to research my Granddad's time spent as a Military Policeman in the RAF during the Second World War, for a possible documentary idea I have.
So there you go, see I told you I only had to look at my list to start motivating myself, now just got to get my head around being back at work tomorrow (sigh!)

Perhaps you could do number 3?
Possibly before being filmed :)

Yes, it wouldn't be a pretty sight captured on film!
