About Me

My photo
My name is Frankie, and I have decide to write this blog in the hope that it will make me go out and do more. I have set myself 52 things that I plan to do in a year. Some are basic everyday things and some will push me out of my comfort zone. Enjoy!

Number 18: Go to a football match
I brother is a huge football fan so I decided to take him to Arsenal vs Chelsea. Sadly arsenal didn't win but is was a draw. All in all it was great experience and a great game.

Number 15: Look after a lamb.
I recently went to visit a farm in Dorset and I thought that maybe I would touch a lamb or two. In fact I really got stuck in and on the last day I was even helping the mothers give birth. It was amazing. There was one lamb which was rejected by its mother so I fed it three times a day and slowly he became strong enough to be adopted onto a new mother. He is now happily settled in the field with his new family.

Number 50: Hand out political leaflets

I thought this one was very daunting but I decided to give it a go. In the Uk we are about to have a general election. So on Saturday morning I got up early and headed to wood green in London. we went around to many houses some people were very polite but there was the occasional person who shut the door in your face. The quality of these photos aren't as good because I didn't want to take a heavy camera with me, so they are taken on an iphone. Enjoy!

Number 45: Start a collection

I slightly cheated on this one as I already had a collection of snow globes. I have 92 and counting.

Number 5: Knit a scarf.

I found this one much easier than I thought. I found a pattern on youtube with very easy instructions. It took about three days to complete. I used alpaca wool rather than sheep's wool as I found it much softer. First thing ticked off the list.
