High Flyer

Judging by the reaction I got from my friends when I posted a comment on Facebook, the next task that I've organised to do, may just provoke the same from yourselves. I've booked trapeze lessons! Not the most easiest thing to book on the Internet it has to be said. It took me a good hour of googling to find somewhere that was not based in London and didn't cost a small fortune to do. I eventually came across Yorkshire Dance, a company based in Leeds, approx. 1 hour car journey away from the land of the Nottingham and a very reasonable £18 for a 2 hour session. I don't go until March, which gives me plenty of time to get rid of the Christmas stomachs and get fit to do the session properly.
Which leaves me with the question ... now what else can I complete from now until March..?

I'm Back!

Well it seems forever since I last wrote a proper blog post and even longer since I actually completed a blog task! I've had a few distractions in the past couple of weeks. Firstly NaNoWriMo, which is the write 50,000 words in a month task. This started off oh so well, but then I had the added complication of getting our house ready to sell and as my priority was on house things, I got slightly behind on the writing and then as the days went past, even further behind, to a point where I thought, oh bugger it and so I did!

The break away from my blog has done me some good though. I'm feeling all refreshed and raring to go again, to the point where I've even made a list of all tasks I'm hoping to do in 2010 and the ones I'm going to have a stab at doing as well.

Planned tasks are:-
1) Learn a foreign language
2) Go to an international football match at Wembley
3) Read all the BBC Top 100 reads
4) Make a film to go onto You Tube
5) Learn chess
Other tasks to have a go at are:-
1) Surfing
2) Watch Forest in an Executive box
3) Fly a trapeze
4) Go to the Grand Prix
5) Cook with a celebrity chef
6) Skinny dipping
7) Get my novel published
8) Save an animal from captivity
Plus there will also be my scheduled appearances on BBC Radio Nottingham - recent appearance on Friday went very well.
I've a feeling 2010 is going to be a good year, but a very busy one!

Sorry, it's been a while I know. I will reveal all very shortly, but in the meantime, I'm on Radio Nottingham tomorrow if you care to join me.

Things may be a little quiet on the old blog task list for a little while, whilst I get to grips with this I've just finished my first day at 2039 words, so I'm pretty chuffed that I'm ahead of my target and you never know, this may be the one that I get published. So in around about way, I may well be working on a blog task. I think I may be doing myself an injustice here!
