101/1001 (6)

29 Apr


I’ve added six new tasks to the list.  They all involve learning by rote:

  • Learn the names of the New Testament books as they appear.
  • Learn the names of the twelve disciples.  I’ve been a Christian for over thirty years; I think it’s time. 
  • Learn my baptism verses again.  I knew them in the Revised Standard Version but now I have a New International Version and I get the two mixed up.
  • Learn the names of all the Kings & Queens of England in order.
  • Learn the names of all the British Prime Ministers in order.
  • Learn the names of all the American Presidents in order.

The Prime Minister list is from a sense of duty: I added the President one first and then thought, as a patriotic Englishwoman, it was my duty to know my own political leaders as well. 

Completed Task:

No mention of Maltesers on my blog for ten days.  I managed it from 13-24 April; did you notice?  Lots of mentions at home, however, until the Hub took the hint and bought me some.

Almost completed task:

I now know the words to the South African national anthem.  All that remains is to film me singing it and post it to the blog.  And some tuning issues, but we’ll gloss over that.

A huge welcome to our new recruit, Perfecting Motherhood.  She’s a pretty impressive recruit because she already has her list of 101 things to do.  You’d think I’d be embarrassed, wouldn’t you?  I’m not; but I do intend to steal some of her tasks for my own list.

    I’ve just been reading through her tasks. Inspiring!

    Especially well done on the Malteser task.

    As I struggle remembering my own name, I will not join you in setting myself a task of learning the name of others. Can you imagine how embarrassing that could be, next time a parcel was delivered and I signed ‘Abraham Clinton’?

    Brava. When you’ve done that you must apply to Mastermind. Maltesers: I had a huge box from Fraser for Easter, but I was in honour bound to offer them around every time and there aren’t enough left to take home with me.

      Silly girl: take them to your room and shove them down when no one’s around.

    Wonder if they had any maltesers at the Royal Wedding buffet?

    Glad you’re making progress on your tasks. 😀

    Haha, feel free to steal some of my tasks and let me know when you’ve completed them, so I can cross them off my list! I suggest you start with cleaning out my closets and garage.

      I can see you are a person who knows how to get things done 🙂

I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
