101 in 1001

Ive started this list to prove to myself (and to the unbelievers) that life with ME isnt the end – its the beginning of a brand new life with brand new opportunities. Here is my list of 101 things to do in 1001 days. I started 101 things to do on June 10th 2011 and the 1001th day is March 7th 2014. Wish me luck!! And if ive inspired you to try it please comment at the bottom of the page and let me know – id love to know how you get on. 🙂
