2012 Twelve April Review

The fourth monthly review of my 2012 Twelve challenges.

1)  Floating in a floatation tank (I’m hoping to do this in London during the February half term)

2)  Reading at least 10 books from the BBC Big Read list (if I read 10 a year, I’ll have the whole 200 knocked off in the next 12-13 years!)I still haven’t read any more of the list, though I have bought myself a copy of Heidi which is on the list somewhere.

3)  Taking at least one photo every day of the year (this will improve my photography skills, be a photo-diary of ‘year in my life’, and help me to learn to use my new camera) – as I’ve been on holiday I’ve taken a lot more photographs – however this all stopped when I got back home and got straight back into being busy, busy, busy …  

4)  Coming up with a fitness plan and sticking to it (the start of my training for Kilimanjaro, though I may not actually climb it for several years yet)still nothing done on this one.

5)  Leading at least 4 of my own walks (good practice for my walking group leader’s qualification)nor this one.

6)  Buying another house (need to get my finances in order first)actually made a start on going through my accounts

7)  Learning to use at least 3 new pieces of technology or computer programmes (not counting my new camera) – I’ve been learning to use the video camera I bought before Christmas.

8)  Doing a writing course (depends on the length of the course whether I’d complete it in the year or not) – I took the first lesson with me on holiday and made a start on it. Now I just need to finish it. 

9)  Getting at least one piece of writing published (paid or unpaid, as long as someone else makes the decision to publish it and it’s not self-published)

10) Making a start on sorting out my photos (putting the prints that are currently still stuffed in packets into albums and getting all my photos scanned into the computer – no way will this be completed in a year, but I’ll feel good even if I get started on it)nothing done

11) Buying a car/van that I can sleep in (and doing any necessary conversions/adaptations) – I’m researching conversions and have the number of someone I can get to have a look at it for me and give me some advice. 

12) Getting into cycling (even if it’s just short cycles along decent paths) – I’ve bought some panniers and a cycle computer. I might not have done any actual cycling but I’m now better equipped for the cycling I don’t do!
