101 things in 1001 days

I live a pretty busy life, working in London, but living in South West England means that I spend more than 3 hours a day on the train; once I get home I don’t have a great deal of time to do anything other than eat and sleep. I saw this idea on Design Darling, the amazing blog my Mackenzie Horan, and I’m hoping that having things written down, with a time limit, will mean that I actually get things done! The list gives me 2.75 years to complete the 101 things below, fingers crossed I’ll complete all of them – if you’re inspired to do the same, let me know and I’ll link through to your version.
