A check up on my resolutions!

Hey! Remember all those months ago where there was frost on every bush and ice at every turn? Nope me neither. Now i’m going to be classically British and as soon as the in has come out, say how bloody hot it is…really original content here…

But back then I gave you all the post of 77 Things to do in 2017 which is what I’m going to be checking up on today to see if I actually can keep to my word or not. So even if this isn’t interesting to you, I’ll be internally  kicking myself. Without further ado, Here’s my original list and how i’m getting on with them:

Red-haven’t started/done and haven’t planned
