New 101 in 1001 list

When I first started my blog back in October 2012, it's original purpose was to document my adventures with 101 things in 1001 days (see my first post here)

That list ended in March this year and I only completed 46.5 items on my list (see here) but if you go and check out my last post you'll see why.

So I've decided to start another list, there are some things from the last list moved over that I didn't complete and there is a lot of new items too.

I've changed a lot in the past 2.5 years and I know I'll change a lot in the next 2.5 years too which is why I haven't got a full 101 items on my list quite yet, as I'm still working out what exactly are some of the things I'd like to accomplish over the next 1001 days. So far I've got 68 items and it gives me room to grow and add more things over the coming months.

As a laugh I decided the starting date for this list would be April 1st 2015 (April Fools Day), which means the end date will be December 27th 2017 which will be a nice Christmas present - so it works out pretty good timing.

As I complete items and add new ones I'll keep you update to date with it all.

Anyway without further ado here's my list so far, I'm so looking forward to completing more items this time round.
