Whilst most blogs are talking about goals/plans/resolutions for 2011, I thought it would be much more to the point to see what progress I am doing on my list of 25 things to do before turning 26.

  1. I turn 26 in a couple of weeks so I was going through my list recently thinking I had accomplished next to nothing on it. I was impressed when I actually started writing that I’ve actually got a lot done off of it!

  2. Don’t be down on yourself if you don’t achieve everything, Helen! Lots of plusses there. I’m turning 40 this year…yikes! I would quite like to have achieved some of your list. But I did make coconut ice, tomato relish and apricot conserve, so I mustn’t be too hard on myself. I hope the floods pass you by…
