After a month of hard slog on these five goals (yeah right) I’m shocked to realise that almost half of my time has gone already! Better get a move on.
It’s been great to link up with all the other bloggers doing this challenge and now, after finally finishing up at school, I may be able to give a bit more time to them.
In saying that, leading a group of 11-14 year olds on a CYFA camp with church in a week’s time is going to be the new all-consuming project. Bring it on!
Anyway, here’s the update…
It’s still proving to be such an awesome book. I’ve learned up to the end of Chapter 2 (halfway!) and have been inspired by Paul’s commitment and love for his fellow brothers and sisters in Christ. However, if you’re trying to emulate his example, it’s very difficult!
2. Cook a Singaporean dish from scratch
It’s booked in. Well, I’m going to give it a go next Friday before we go away. Very exciting. I’ll hopefully post a menu next week ahead of the experiment. It can either go very well…or very very badly!
Ah ha, done with this one. Actually, I’ve missed skipping this week (never thought I’d say something like that!). Claire, am I allowed to carry on even though the goal is complete?
4. Table Tennis – to challenge and beat three new players
I’m winning this mission 1-0. I took on the school’s PE coach “a specialist at racquet sports” and beat him 11-6. Admittedly, he is a badminton man not a table tennis man. And I had the wind on my side. But even so, a win is a win. Can I count smashing the top three children in Y6 as well by even greater margins? Probably not, right?
5. Layla on the guitar
I have played my guitar so much over the last few weeks with my class at school, but no sign of progress with Layla. This is the one I’m most worried about.
