Work has been full of mixed emotions, we had two members of staff leave, but have managed to recruit replacements and I've met our Orkney contractor for the first time. She's definitely made me want to plan a visit. I love Scotland but haven't ventured quite that far north before.
In other news, Andrew had his final procedure following on from his eye surgery and has now been discharged. Hurrah! He's finally been able to remove the bracelet which warned him against flying or having a general anaesthetic, which has been on his wrist since New Year's Eve. We went out for lunch in an old haunt in Bristol to celebrate.

|Before and after|
Read sixteen books
No progress on this, still at 1/16 I'm afraid. I have made some slight progress by buying more books for my Kindle, now just to find the time to read them.
Find one hundred geocaches
We've done much better this month, we're now on 15/100 after starting the year on 488 finds. We did them over three days which must show that the weather's improving, if I feel there's a chance of venturing out for a walk without being caught in a deluge.
Maintain Vitality gold status
At least this is one that I don't have to do anything about until the policy renews in May!
Try three gym classes
No progress on this as I'm still waiting for Vitality to approve my claim for my poor ankle. Honestly, I'm thinking it would have been quicker to be referred to a physio through the NHS.
Meet up with an old friend
After last month's success it's been a quiet month for catch ups, but I'm sure that will change when the weather improves.
Blog once a month
We had a really good day out at Longleat which I was keen to blog about, honestly the monkeys are so much fun, it's well worth the risk of losing a windscreen wiper!
Watch a new film once a month
No progress on this one, the loss of my work-free Friday afternoons has meant we've not made it to the cinema in March. At home we've watched huge numbers of episodes of House and I was fairly late in hearing about the Night Manager, so we watched that over a week. They definitely left it lined up for a second series!
Take two holidays
I'm really looking forward to our trip to the Isle of Wight at the end of April. We should get plenty of opportunity for geocaching, sight seeing and curling up in front of the fire to read books. I can't wait :)
Take six day trips
Longleat has been our first day trip of the year, but it was such a good one! I've got a few more ideas up my sleeve which I'm looking forward to over the next few months.
April should be a good one with our holiday, Andrew's birthday and a few other things we have planned. I'm looking forward to fully coming out of hibernation now that Spring is here.
