Boxing Day

A few weeks ago I blogged about how I have a list of goals I want to achieve. I've been having a rethink about these goals recently and have made some changes.

  1. I have War and Peace if you wanna have a go. I don't recommend it. Steve's little brother just got his diving cert if you want. I can help with the sewing a shirt if you can find a sewing machine. And maybe something along the lines of the art: http://www.composeart.co.nz/project.php?cat_id=16
