Trying different work: I am currently volunteering at a museum of Catholic history, working on an art exhibition. I'm really enjoying it and learning about working with images, structuring an exhibition etc.
Reading projects: I am missing the art in London so will be doing lots of art reading. Also trying to see as many arty things as possible, I am currently finding and photographing urban art. I also got to love walking in London and here there is the bonus of the countryside so will be reading about landscapes, the countryside, walking and will be illustrating landscapes. I have recently got back into knitting so will be reading on that. Suggestions needed for a fiction or history reading project!
Fashion projects: I did not buy anything in the sales! And I got rid of two binbags of clothes to Oxfam. In 2018 I will be spending less on clothes and trying to assemble an intelligent and high quality wardrobe, rather than impulse buying weird stuff all the time.
Social projects: we have joined a gaming club, which meets in a gothic themed pub on tuesday nights, and will be using shopping money saved to eat out more. This week in our favourite local restaurant, Maggie's Grill.
Food projects: Inspired by me and Leen's themed dinners I am working through my cookbooks. First up Gastronomy of Italy by Anna del Conte. So far beef stew with spices, lamb and potato stewand spaghetti with tomato and bacon have all been delicious. I also plan to do foods of Poland and Ukraine later.
