So I set myself the 101 things in 1001 days and I have until October 4th 2015 to tick of as many as I can. I think I've managed to do and see and buy a fair amount don't you? Looking at what is left there are a few things which seem a little far fetched (there are a lot of travel related ones) but I've managed to be lucky enough to already tick off Rome and Barcelona as well as see some people I love reach momentous occasions of their lives which I've been lucky enough to be around for. 

I think the biggest thing for me achievement wise at the moment is my career in event management; I really feel I'm finding my stride in my job and that I'm actually good at it. Which is good because I always want to be the best. Saying that I follow the rule of "work to live and not live to work" so am very excited about things ahead. 

Let's see how much more I can do before Christmas this year!


  1. I've just downloaded iStripper, so I can have the hottest virtual strippers on my desktop.
