25 Before 24 - September Update

At Prior Park Landscape Garden in Bath last November
Oops. I've been meaning to write this post for weeks but somehow it's fallen by the wayside. Here it is anyway.
Over the last month or so I've been on holiday, seen many different friends, watched the Balloon Fiesta Night Glow had a day on the Exmoor coast, caught the last day of the Laura Ashley exhibition with my Mum, been visited by my sister, and (joint-)won the charity bake-off at work!

25 Things

  1. Cycle to Bath
  2. Visit K at RHUL
  3. Go to a sewing meet
  4. Make 5 items of clothing - skirt, half-made Sonja, half-made Strawbetto
  5. Go to Cornwall and/or somewhere warm - Cornwall again
  6. Learn some Perl/Ruby/C++/SQL - I'm picking up fragments of Perl as I go along
  7. Keep a list of things to cook and make 2 new ones per month - Cooked my first artichoke, made up patatas bravas, re-created itame, and experimented with overnight oats (meh)
  8. Read twelve or more books  - Finished "Toast". Borrowed various non-fiction library books
