Well March did not at all go as expected. To start with, the Flight of the Conchords gig got postponed but that’s alright as I have something to look forward to. Then, just before Easter, my tiniest dog Minnie lost her eye so I played ambulance driver and zoomed her to the vet. Very traumatic.
But March wasn’t all doom and gloom. Here are the things I loved about it.
|Dean Farm Trust Sanctuary|
Volunteering – at Dean Farm Trust Sanctuary. This farm is fantastic. They rescue farm animals from almost certain death. Even sick ones. They have an epileptic pig! I learnt that turkeys are VERY vocal.
We arrived a little late and I was assigned cleaning the duck pond. Uh oh I thought. I needn’t have worried as the duck “pond” was a very small paddling pool. Once that easy job was done I helped hack away at a track with the other volunteers ready to be turned into a more permanent track. That was tough. But then I helped move a giant hen house. It took 8 of us and I was left with bruised forearms.
Over all it was a fantastic couple of hours for a great cause and I’ll happily do it again.
|Parkrun 50 Club|
Achieving a goal – I did it! I achieved my goal of 50 Parkruns before I turned 30. I did it with no weekends to spare. Talk about living on the edge. I am looking forward to recieving my 50 tshirt soon.
Caca rouging hair – Putting more henna in my hair has been long overdue. Now I have pretty bright hair and was able to update the pictures on one of my most popular blog posts.
|Sip N Slide|
I turned 30! Wooo. To celebrate, a bunch of us played archery. It was very, very cold but it was great seeing all my different friends mix. Later in the evening they came back over and we ate vegan snacks, played Jackbox TV and one of my very creative friends made a cool tea themed “Sip & Slide” game.
I went bouldering. I already quite enjoy climbing but our nearest climbing centre is quite far away. A small bouldiering centre opened up about 20 minutes away so I went with a friend and loved it. I wasn’t very good and my feet got crushed in the tight, tight shoes but I am looking forward to going again and improving.
What did you get up to in March?
