Change Is As Good As A Rest

I'm making an amendment to my list..

7.Apply for TV quiz show Eggheads..because as much as I love this TV show I don't think I will ever get a team together (I don't know enough people with brains as huge as mine, haha)

So I am replacing it with this:

Take part in NaBloPoMo.. (National Blog Posting Month) and post every day in November.

Put A Sock In It!

76. Knit 20 pairs of socks..11/20

I knitted a further 3 pairs of socks bringing my total since beginning this 101 list, to 11 pairs.
Two of the pairs recently knitted were childrens socks for my charity knit group Loving Hands. They were a very quick knit in chunky wool and didn't take too long. They will be sent along with many other knitted garments to the Linda MacDonald Foundation who then in turn takes them over to orphanages in Bulgaria.
The third pair took a bit longer and are a gift so I wont say too much about them here.

X Marks The Spot

97.Vote at a polling station...COMPLETED

Today I voted in the local By-Election. The commmunity centre nearby served as the Polling Station. I have yet to learn if my chosen candidate was successful in gaining his seat in the House Of Commons.
