Not resolutions

I’m not a fan of New Year’s resolutions. There’s something about them that makes my childish brain want to do the exact opposite.   Instead I like to write a list of things I’d like to aim to do during the year, no pressure, just a go-to selection of activities for times when we’re a bit stuck in a rut.  The children have contributed too.

Of course seizing moments has to play a big part too.  Last year we had some brilliant experiences like being on Newsnight and meeting a real life spaceman.  Life without being open to new experiences isn’t properly worth living.

So here’s my list so far…

  • Plan a skiiing trip
  • Plan a long trip for the summer holidays
  • Tate Britain
  • Tate Modern
  • 19 Princelet St
  • Ragged School Museum
  • Geocaching
  • Downe House
  • Kew Palace and Gardens
  • Cutty Sark
  • Paul Smith Exhibition at Design Museum
  • Go Ape
  • Lazer Quest
  • Swim in Hampstead Ponds
  • Long walk based on one of locations in Wild Swim book
  • Lots of other long walks
  • Sam Wannamaker’s Jacobean Theatre
  • Polka Theatre
  • The Globe
  • Ice Skating
  • Climbing
  • Swim in new Streatham pool
  • Camping

What should I add?

    Love this idea. I would add to my list – going to the National Portrait Gallery to look at the pictures not just go to their restaurant!

  2. I would add ‘Teaching a nutty crafty lady how to make a sliver necklace’…oh..wait. 😉
