Time for a quick update on the 27 remaining challenges.
Make your own dress – as I don’t own a sewing machine and can’t even stitch a button I’m putting myself in the hands of the experts at Manchester’s Junk Shop. They run beginners dressmaking courses in the Northern Quarter, I’m booked in for a weekend in September.
Stand up on a surf board – dates are in the diary for a trip to Abersoch with Richard and co in October.
- Write a Children’s Story
I really love that a lot of the people who’ve set me challenges have said that they’d like to be involved in the carrying-out of them. The truly brilliant Ben, one of my nearest and dearest, is one such. His challenge is for me to write two short stories for children, to which he will contribute a third and some illustrations. What a really, really lovely way to collaborate with friends.
