Saturday's prompt was:

'This month's soundtrack

Here's my list -

  • Blondie - I'm obsessed with Call Me at the moment. 
  • Jimi Hendrix - All Along the Watxhtower is forever part of my soundtrack.
  • Oasis - There was a new series I watched on E4 recently called My Mad Fat Diary which was set in the 90s and Oasis songs were featured a number of times. iI took me right back to my early childhood.

Sunday's prompt was:

'My biography would include tales of...'

Here's my list

  • My childhood - The days of my life!
  • My school life - I spent the majority of my life there (and at the same school too)!
  • My health issues - I wouldn't really want to nclude them but i've had them for almost my whole life. 
  • My brief time in college - It was an experience! (....and i've just realised that i've spelt brief wrong. Embarrassing.)
  • My jobs - The things I did after I left education. 
Monday's prompt was:

'So far this year I....'

Here's my list - 

  • Watched 7 films - Grave of the Fireflies, Warrior, The Artist, Platoon, The General, Sherlock Jr and Manhattan.

  • Have been out to eat 3 times - Twice for lunch and once for breakfast.
  • Have had 2 takeaways - Pizza both times.
  • Haven't had any alcohol - I'm not a big drinker these days anyway. 
  • Have written 12 blog posts - Not really that many but not much was happening in January and February. Hopefully things should become more interesting in the next few months. 

Today's prompt was:

'In the next year, I will.....'

Here's my list - 

  • Read more books - I aim to read at least 25 books a year and over the next year i'm hoping to read more of the classics.

30 Days of Lists: Day 10, 11 and 12

Sunday's prompt was:

'I'm craving...'

Here's my list - 

  • Warmth - It's been absolutely freezing over the past few days.
  • Peace - Peace and quiet would be so nice but I just don't seem to get it very often these days!
  • Sleep - Despite having had a good nights sleep I was still absolutely knackered.
  • Coke - My favourite drink.
  • A cigarette - I'm addicted. Just say no kids!

Monday's prompt was:

'Things I do every morning'

       I think everything on this list is pretty self explanatory so I won't bore you with the details!

Today's prompt was:

'Things I do every night'

Here's my list - 

  Once again pretty self explanatory.

30 Days of Lists: Day 7, 8 and 9

Thursday's prompt was:

'In my bag!'

The contents of my bag are pretty sparse so there wasn't much to put down.

Here's my list - 

  • Recipts - Absolutely tons of them. 
  • My library card - I haven't used it for a while hence why it's just floating around in there.
  • Rescue Remedy - To be honest it doesn't really work for me but I always keep it with me 'just in case'.
  • An AA road map - Someone gave it to me shortly after I passed my driving test. I've never used it but it's a handy thing to have.
  • A USB pen - It's been in there for literally years! I don't even know what is on it anymore!

Friday's prompt was:

'Comfort foods'

Here's my list - 

 Basically my favourite foods of which I eat far too much of, apart from maybe Nutella, I don't have that very often. 

Today's prompt was:

'Today's ought do list' 

Here's my list - 

  • Pick up my Mum's present - I've bought her some personalised cakes for tomorrow.
  • Make a Mothers Day card - It's Mothers Day in the UK tomorrow and seeing as I didn't get round to buying a card I really need to make one. 
  • Get some food - We don't have much in and I really fancy some unhealthy cereal.
  • Look after my Mum - She's really poorly with the flu. :(

30 Days of Lists - Day 6

Today's prompt was:

'My talents'

This was kinda hard for me as I don't see myself as having any talents really so I just picked silly things. 

Here's my lisr - 

  • Eating a whole 12 inch pizza by myself - Normally I don't have a very big appetite but when it comes to pizza I can eat loads!
  • Sticking my finger right through my ear - I have stretched earlobes so can fit my pinky finger right through my ear. I enjoy freaking people out by doing it!
  • Typing really fast - I can't type crazily fast but once I get into the rhythm I can touch type pretty quickly.

30 Days of Lists - Day 5

Today's prompt was:

'Things I would like to do by the end of the month'

I thought this prompt was a bit too similar to the one from a couple of days ago. Thank God I didn't pick month for that one or it would just be exactly the same list!

Here's my list - 

  • Eat out somewhere - I either want to go to a local Italian restaurant that I got my takeaway pizza from last week or an Indian restaurant near me that does a 2 for 1 deal on a Thursday abd Friday.
  • Get my hair done - It looks absolutely horrendous at the moment. I think this is the longest i've ever gone without getting my roots done. 
  • Go to an assertiveness class - Same as I said last time. I must admit I kinda don't wanna go but I do at the same time. 
  • Complete this journal - Hopefully on time!

30 Days of Lists - Day 4

Today's prompt was-

'On an average day I....'

I'm afraid my life currently may seem incredbly boring (hence why i've not been blogging much), so this might not make for very interesting reading. 

Here's my list - 

 I don't think there is anything to explain about this list, it's all pretty straightforward. The highlight og my day is definitely spending time with my cats though - I have one sleeping next to me right now!


Sunday, 3 March 2013

30 Days of Lists - Day 3

Today's prompt was:

' This ____ , I am going to....'

I chose 'this week' as I find it pretty hard to think about much longer time scales than that! 

Here's my list - 

  • Attend the introductory workshop for my assertiveness course - It's on Wednesday afternoon and i'm REALLY nervous about it. 
  • Eat out or get a takeaway - I got a takeaway last week for the first time in months and this week i'd like to take the next step and actually eat out somewhere (something that I haven't done in almost a year). If I can't do it getting another takeaway is not a complete failure though.

30 Days of Lists: Day 2

Today's prompt was:

'About me'

Here's my list -

I think everything about the list is pretty self explanitory so there is no need for me to elaborate further!

30 Days of Lists: Day 1

So it's that time again - time for another round of 30 Days of lists. I'm planning on putting a lot more effort into it this time after my abysmal attempt in September. (I should also mention that I spilt something on it after i'd uploaded it onto here so it looks even worse now!) Here's hoping I stay true to my word!

First of all here is my front cover:

Today's prompt was:

'I am a lister because....'

I was a bit disappointed with this list prompt as it is exactly the same first list prompt as last time. Nothing has changed in the 6 months since I last wrote this list so i'm afraid this is going to be a little boring. 

Anyway, here's my list -
