    An update on my progress so far:

    Activity 2 - Get a Cactus = complete
    I am now the proud owner of a cactus, it is pretty cute!! I mean who doesn't like a cute cactus (they are all cute right?) :badger:

    Activity 5 - Get a Job = complete
    After searching for a permanent job for a while I have managed to a get a temporary job which I start next week, which is pretty cool. :bl:

    Activity 7 - Learn to make at least 5 Origami animals = complete

    I found this alot more challenging than I expected, as there are alot more origami things to learn than anticipated. It was really fun to make the animals and I am hoping to make lots more things such as more animals, flowers and shapes. I learnt how to make an angel fish, a shark/dolphin, a crab, a bird and a frog. I have attached a picture at the bottom of the so you guys can see some of my creations. I found the frog the most difficult as there is loads of different folding techniques involved.:llama:

    Activity 20 - See my university friends = complete

    On Saturday 5th August I took a trip to Nottingham for my friends hen do and so saw them for that. It was great to have a day and night out with them all as it made me realise how much I miss them and need to make an effort to see them more as they make me happy. On the Sunday, I went to see my friend in Birmingham, which was interesting as my original train was cancelled so ended up having to go to Chesterfield and go from there. This made me an hour late!! The whole weekend was awesome and am sad its all over, but excited to see them all next week for my friends wedding. :clap2:
