Day 245 – Word search

Today's new thing was a super quick and easy one. I used to love doing word searches in my Grandparent's puzzle books. I'd sometimes treat them like a magic eye, relax my eyes, and see what words jumped out at me. Today I decided to try and create my own. I found a website aptly… Continue reading Day 245 – Word search

Day 81 – Hip Hop dance class

This is something I've never done but always wanted to. I'm a hip hop fan and love a dance, so it seems like a perfect fit! I was looking for more ways to stay active whilst social distancing and came upon a Hip Hop workout class. Ok, so not a true Hip Hop class, but… Continue reading Day 81 – Hip Hop dance class

Day 50 – Chinese characters

Like yesterday, I'm still full of cold and feeling a bit sorry for myself. Wanting to stick to the challenge I needed something quick and easy to do, so I looked through my list and saw that my good friend Vikki had suggested learning how to write a word in Chinese. Perfect! I chose the… Continue reading Day 50 – Chinese characters

Day 49 – Tie a tie

Today had to be a quick and easy one, as I'd spent all day on the sofa, full of cold and feeling sorry for myself. Luckily, I have a very stylish and helpful husband who could help me with today's new thing – how to tie a tie. I have actually never worn a tie,… Continue reading Day 49 – Tie a tie

Day 48 – Learned to juggle

I had an absolute blast learning to juggle. After making my juggling bean bags the other day I was ready and raring to get going, hoping that I could run away and join circus by the end of the day. My juggling bean bags, full of dried beans. Ok, so I was maybe a bit… Continue reading Day 48 – Learned to juggle

Day 46 – Self-driving bus

Today was one of those fantastic days where life led me to a totally unplanned and unexpected new thing, one I would never have tried outside of this challenge. The Städel Museum in Frankfurt is a beautiful old building with one of the biggest and best collections of art in Germany. Since last year it… Continue reading Day 46 – Self-driving bus

Day 45 – Made juggling balls

This one is at simple as it sounds. I have "learn juggling" on my list and really want to try it, but I don't own any juggling balls. What I do have, however, is a drawer full of random sewing supplies - including a pack full of fabric squares. An idea was forming... So, on… Continue reading Day 45 – Made juggling balls

Day 44 – Ein wichtiger Brief

A few new things ago I wrote a letter to a sick child using Post Pals, and I mentioned my post mad nephew. I've written to him a few times over his four years, but none recently, and none in German. My nephew doesn't know any German, neither does my sister or her partner, so… Continue reading Day 44 – Ein wichtiger Brief

Day 43 – Chubby Bunny

I wonder what you're thinking today's new thing is from that title. If you're anything like me, you won't have a clue what Chubby Bunny means. It was only when my lovely friend Amy suggested it for my list that I became aware of this silly and fun game. A game where you challenge each… Continue reading Day 43 – Chubby Bunny

Day 41 – Balms and lotions

After last weeks plans to make lip balm went awry, my friend came over today and we decided to finally give it a try. When I was researching how to make the lip balms, I realised that we could also make lotion bars (a solid bar of lotion that melts into the skin, nourishing the… Continue reading Day 41 – Balms and lotions
