Welcome to my weekly roundup of my year long challenge to do one Good deed a day for a year. This challenge began back in April 2013 and is still going strong. My inspiration came from reading “A Year of Doing Good” by Judith O’Reilly. Here is what I’ve been up to this week.
February 16th – It is 10 months to this day that I began my own year of Good Deeds Challenge, the time has really flown by. This week is National Random Acts of Kindness Week.
February 17th – Left a tip for the lady who cut my kid’s hair. It’s the school half term, so I’m not in helping the children this week.
February 18th – Just a couple of book reviews today. Liaised with an author about her book review post and guest author interview.
February 19th – Set up a draft of a guest author interview, began reading another book and checked over my book reviews for the April issues of the 2 magazines that I write for. Really sad news, the editor of Fleet Life said she didn’t have room for my book reviews in the March Issue, instead of being miffed I need to use the experience to find a new opportunity. Hopefully I’ll be back in for April and I should also start my book review page in the sister magazine in April too.
February 20th – The sun is shining, so I’ve made the most of it and got out into the garden. Raked up leaves from mine and my neighbours front gardens.
February 21st – Have invited some friends and their children over for tea. A good afternoon to catch up. I baked a cake, a quiche and I’ll make homemade pizza’s later. Good Deeds received; My friends came loaded down with flowers and cakes, Thank you.
February 22nd – Made it over to see my parents, now that some of the local flooding has gone down. Did a little bit of computer deleting for my Mum to clean up her files.We have quite a few roads shut around the area due to the flooding or the damage it has caused, still quite a lot of water around on my route there and back. 20 letters of my A to Z challenge now booked, and 2 more people thinking about it who are yet to confirm their place, Yay! Some tough letters left to fill but I do have some ideas.
