Recent things…

aka ‘5 things on Friday’, issue #0.

One of the blogs I read fairly regularly is that of ex-BBC chappy, Hugh Garry.

He’s a smart chap and I finally managed to meet him at a social media week event a little while back, which was nice. One of the things he mentioned back then was an attempt he was making on his blog called ‘5 things I liked this week‘.

Once a week [well, nearly – get back on the horse Hugh!] he just puts exactly that: five links to five things that he liked that week. I’ve been doing something similar for the ‘heads for a while now and, well, I think I’d quite like to do something similar, for myself, in 2012.

Every Friday (hopefully on my way home from work) I’m going to jot down the five things I’ve done or seen that week. Or perhaps even five things that have happened to me or that I’ve seen or whatever. Either way, it’s going in the Moleskine and then, naturally, it’s ending up on here.

To kick off, and for memory’s sake, this is the one I started God knows when earlier this year, but with a much larger number than five. Call it ‘Cool things that happened in 2011’ or something.

So, in no particular order:

_______

AND THAT’S IT!

Wow…  I aimed for 5 and I finished with 55.  Not bad for my first go.

Let’s see how this works out for 2012.

We had such fun that day and this pic just makes me smile.

    I do this! I write happy lists on my blog. Nothing major, just little things that are making me smile (today it’s Oh Comely magazine and Clueless). I make myself write lists of happy things when I’m a bit down, not just just when good things are going on. Suddenly I’m much cheerier, there are always cool things going on.

    Glad to hear it!

    I did the above list from memory, moleskine and flickr. 55 isn’t too bad. What’s that? 4.5 cool things a month? I’m happy with that – especially from one sitting. I’m sure there’s a ton of stuff I’ve forgotten.

    Roll on happy lists for 2012 🙂
