  1. oh just looked at these lists. I like it, i like it a lot. I have a list on my blog and I haven’t visited back or crossed things off. pointless having done it really. must go back in check in with them. thanks for inspiring that.


  2. just reading your list – one of them was to write for someone elses blog – well i note that you have crossed off the vege garden thing. Maybe you could write me an article about the joys of this? It is something I want to do (something I never thought I would want to do, but want to do nonetheless) what do you think? I frequently interview / have guest people who have achieved something i want…. what you think?

    1. Nikki Says:

      Sharni! That sounds awesome! Thanks so much for offering! I’ll have to wait until until we actually have something to pick and eat though, we only planted a couple of weeks ago, so we just have little sprouties now, but I’ll make sure I take photos along the way of the growth process and get back to you once we harvest. Sound good?

      Thanks again! 🙂


  3. I love “27. Write 101 hand written letters to friends”. That’s such a lovely and thoughtful idea. It’s so nice to receive snail mail that isn’t a bill. I hope your friends appreciate it.

    1. Nikki Says:

      Thanks Adora, I think they do! I’ve been surprised by how many hand written letters I’ve received back, it’s been really nice!

  4. Emily Says:

    Cheers for the helpful information in your blog on 101/1001 lists | learning how to be me.
