My 2013 challenges are:-
1) Watch one old film each month.
2) List five items on Ebay each month.
3) Have a date night with Mick each month.
I think I must know all the famous quotes from Casablanca, there's so many, though Play It Again, Sam, probably the most famous quote of all, is a misquote and is never said in the film. Though I know all the quotes, I'd never seen the film. I rectified that by making it the film to watch in June. I didn't know the story behind it at all before watching it, so didn't really know what to expect from it. I really enjoyed it, the story thoroughly held my attention, the acting was superb and the characters varied and interesting. It's definitely a film which has stood the test of time.
The Ebay selling is still going well, though I'm surprised that I'm keeping this challenge up as it's quite time consuming photographing and listing everything. I think I've set myself a realistic target of five items each month, that way, I don't get too fed up of doing it. It is good when things sell though and you see the Paypal balance increasing.
Our date night this month was a meal in the local pub. I'd hoped to do something a bit different, a day out somewhere or a place we hadn't been to before, but we've had a bit of a hectic month. My dad has been in hospital for surgery, he's home now but still not properly right so will have to go back in the near future. We've been visiting him whilst he's been in hospital and running my mum around here and there which has really eaten in to our time, but we're only too happy to help out. We enjoyed a couple of hours to ourselves though and the food was delicious.
It's been another month which has sped by and I don't think July will be any different. We go away on holiday to Cornwall in three weeks so I'll have plenty to do getting ready for that, though I'm really looking foward to it. My challenges in July will have to be completed at the beginning of the month, a challenge in itself.
