As well as my travel challenges I have set myself a few other challenges for 2015. These probably should have been set in January but who wants to be the same as everyone else.
At the moment I have 12 other challenges I am working on:
My current book is a very light read (lent to me by my mother in law) Voices in Summer by Rosamunde Pilcher. I like that many of her stories are set in Devon or Cornwall. I am also dipping in and out of the Lonely Planet guide to Malaysia and Singapore.
Last weekend we visited the beautiful Tudor Kentwell Hall in Suffolk. I will blog about our visit later in the week.
In February I went with a group of friends to see The Second Exotic Marigold Hotel:
In January I went to listen to an Abba Tribute band and last month I went to a Frank Sinatra Tribute band.
This month I am taking my mum to see a local theatre group perform a play called The Vackees
Set at the outbreak of the Second World War, this is the funny, moving story of the invasion of a Somerset village by child evacuees from London - the Vackees - and their adventures with the (at first) hostile native children. The musical centres around a young London lad, Kip, and follows his first experiences of love and war.
We live in such a lovely area. I would love to start recording the wild flowers, birds and other wildlife we see nearby.
I have lots of trips to choose from and I think this would be a good use of time. I want to have lots of photos to look through when I am sitting in my rocking chair in old age.
