52 things in 52 weeksWe’re almost to the double digits already – where is the time going??? I’ve been rushed off my feet this week, so not a huge amount of progress, but one little challenge came to an end this week, so that’s another tenner in the pot!

One thought on “52 things – week 9

  1. Congratulations on the non-alcohol in February. I will need to set myself a challenge like that. I enjoy a cider every night, sometimes followed by wine at dinner so it would be a bit of a challenge for me to go without. 🙂
