Things I’ve done in 2022:
Go to the gym
For a brief time after Christmas and before my sister’s wedding I started to go back to the gym. It wasn’t as terrible as I thought, but the cost wasn’t feasible with the rising cost of living in London. So I gave it up, once again, to work out at home instead.
Go to Secret Cinema
In March, two friends from work and I went to the Bridgerton Secret Cinema event and it was amazing! Well worth getting tickets, if there are some still available. We had a ball – literally!
Do a talk at my old school
And finally, mid-way through March, I returned to my secondary school to give a talk to creative writing students about becoming a published writer. It was daunting but a lot of fun. And it was lovely to see some of my old teachers as well.
In terms of things that are very likely to happen in 2022, here’s what I have booked:
Go to Disneyland Paris
Barring any disasters – which feels awfully like tempting fate after the last two years – my friends and I should be off to Disneyland Paris in June… watch this space.
Write another novel
I’ve got the chapter breakdown, the go-ahead from my lovely agent… but now I need to find the time, energy and creativity.
Complete three 30-day challenges
I’ve done one 30-day challenge so far, and I’ve got another planned for April. If I squeeze another one in, in the latter half of the year I should manage this.
Go to a concert
We’re off to ABBA in May, so this should go ahead. Although, I’m totally out of practice, having not been to a concert in over 10 years!
Get a new haircut
All booked for April. The colour purple may be playing a part…
My next donation is at the end of March so I should easily tick this one-off. Maybe even more than once this year.
As for everything else, they’ll be a major plus if I do, do them in 2022. We’ll have to see what the year brings.
