New year, new list. First though, an update on last years
i) Extension/decorating. This was one of the biggest things for 2006 for us. Plans were drawn up, the garage demolished and the new extension built although it's still only 75% complete. We also managed to decorate the bathroom, but the attic and lounge are on hold until the extension is finished. Half a mark for this one.
ii) Job. Haven't managed to find a new job yet. Have managed to migrate myself over to C# though and am now programming completely in .NET. Another half mark.
iii) Website. Yep - otbc.co.uk
went live in September. Full marks for this one.
iv) Bookies. I knew this one was going to be hard. I didn't make a profit although if I hadn't gone through with a couple of stupid bets I wouldn't have been too far off breaking even. Nothing for this.
So overall, 2/4 - must try harder. On to this years list of impossibilities (some of which are remarkably similar to this years)...
i) Extension/decorating. Priority is to finish the extension and get it habitable. This means fitting out the bathroom and decorating the utility and study room. There's a number of knock-on effects from this including the attic, the cupboard in the spare room and the kitchen so ideally I'd like to get these finished as well. Lots of hard work to be done here...
ii) Job. Get a new one. Easy.
iii) C# MCAD. I've started studying for this already so I'd like to take the exam
and get certified.
iv) Bookies. Nothing new here - make a profit. I'm going to keep a log this year so I can track my progress.
v) Blog. Keep my blog and my picture site updated more often.
vi) Books. Read more. How hard can that be?!
vii) Walk. I've been wanting to do a long distance walk for some time. The Minster Way
is a 50-odd mile path from Beverley to York and, conveniently, passes right past my front door. Sounds like a plan.
Come back in twelve months for an update!
