My Bucket List

Personal Achievements:

  • learn to play the piano - started online lessons with C in September 2021, ongoing, took a break from July 2022 to January 2023 when I resumed face to face lessons with J and then switched to L
  • learn to speak Italian - started May 2020 using the Duolingo App, ongoing
  • improve my fitness - starting June 2022 with a target of being fit enough to walk with the Ramblers or similar, ongoing
  • complete a course - this still has to be decided and may be an OU course, an A level, or maybe continue with the photography degree. I'm wanting something that stretches my mind and pushes me out of my comfort zone. - for the time being learning to play the piano meets this criteria, i.e. stretches my mind and pushes me out of my comfort zone!
  • take up, or resume, a skill/craft - learning to crochet (2023)
