101/1001 (22)

26 Aug

Another quite week for challenges.  Quiet, even.  Quite. 

Blame the summer holidays; I do.  It’s difficult to be self-obsessed when the house is full of children demanding food and making me proud.

Which reminds me: apologies for overloading you with posts yesterday…ah, who am I kidding?  I’ll be doing the same thing next year when he takes the bulk of his GCSEs.  You might as well get used to it.

Here’s where I’m at:

Find another 64 challenges for the list.  (27/64)

This number hasn’t moved for months.  As I have a raft of new readers, I’ll throw the floor open to suggestions again.  One caveat: they must be cheap or free.

Reach 30,000 comments on my blog (13,020/30,000)

I reached my original target of 13,000 yesterday.  The exciting bit was actually seeing ‘13,000 Comments’ on my Home Page.  What can I say?  I live a dull life.

Less than a third of the way in, I feel it was right to up the target to 30,000.  However, if I do some rapid maths which make my head hurt because maths really isn’t my thing, I suspect the new number is still too low.

Any suggestions for a realistic target?

    Go for 50,000. If you look like you’re going to come up short near the end we’ll all comment more.


  2. Tinman August 26, 2011 at 19:00 #

    Honestly, we will.


  3. Tinman August 26, 2011 at 19:00 #

    Go for 101,000!! 😉 It fits. It’s ambitious. It’s free. We’ll all help you. Go Tilly, Go Tilly!!!


  7. sarsm August 26, 2011 at 19:10 #

    But you’d need to up the visitors too – which by the way is also not ambitious enough. 😉

      Dear Tinman, Viv and Sarah:

      1. lol 😀
      2. Thank you 🙂
      3. Do you all cheat in exams as well? 🙂


      • sarsm August 28, 2011 at 08:26 #

        I’m starting to think you should do a poll!! 😀

    13,000 is a LOT of comments, Tilly 🙂


  11. colonialist August 26, 2011 at 22:52 #

    Hmmm. If you don’t mind the comments ranging from indignant to hate, why not insult a few religions, or even *shudder* say enthusiastically what a great job you think the present government is doing? 🙂


    • Tilly Bud August 27, 2011 at 07:10 #

      It’s an idea; but I don’t do controversy 🙂

    I don’t know about your neck of the woods but if some museums are free on specific days, maybe you want to plan a few visits (by yourself or with the family).

    Also, how about some picnics? I have it on my list because I used to do that as a kid but I don’t with my own kids and I’d really like them to have the experience to eat outdoors in an interesting place.

    Take a class (free or cheap) to learn something different?

    Try another playground? 😉

    I’m not helping much, am I?


    • Tilly Bud August 27, 2011 at 07:13 #

      Most museums are free now in the UK. I’ve visited all of those close to us; I have to go father afield for the five on my list.

      Can’t imagine my 15 year old and 21 year old sons would be enthusiastic about picnics with mother 😉

      The class is a good idea; I’ll look around.

      You make me think, so yes, you are helping. Thank you 🙂

    Keep going Tilly? 😆


  14. Tilly Bud August 29, 2011 at 10:11 #

    PM: That IS a challenge – the Hub eating outdoors when there’s no barbecue involved 🙂


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.
