I also realised that some of the items on my list were things that I didn't really want to do; they were there because I thought I should do them; for instance, having colourful flowers in the garden. I know that my Mum would like it if I had a nicer garden, but I'm simply not green fingered. I tried to plant some things, but I don't think they're flourishing. I have tried it, but since it wasn't really there for me, I have removed it.
Anyway, here is my re-arranged list, with items completed at the top, then remaining things below, so that I can see how far along my Challenge I am.
