So this is the plan for my 2016 Eco Crusade. Each month, I’ll post a summary of my goals. Let’s see how we go!
On the 26th October 2015, while on holiday, I wrote down what I wanted to achieve in 2016. I’m usually a ‘gunna’ kind of person and so here it is, the 4th January 2016 and I’m quite surprised that I have started a blog. To be honest, I’m a bit pleased with myself! If I can make it to at least 26th October 2016, I’ll be even more chuffed!
This is what I wrote –
