So it’s the 22nd day of the Challenge and I’ve certainly succeeded at working less although I haven’t been able to trade for a couple of days either! It’s pretty frustrating but due to some personal issues I’ve moved and I now have to wait until the end of the month to get a wired broadband connection! Currently I can only connect to the internet via a BT WiFi Hotspot which as good as it is (3 – 4mb) consistently drops connection from around mid afternoon until 6pm where it seems to stabilise a little again.
Trading with this would be financial suicide so for now I’ll just be picking up the odd evening race after that period. It’s not ideal although it’s forced me to free up some time in the day and im still confident im not that far behind.
This morning I woke up and did something quite spontaneous. Having hit snooze a few times I came too and my immediate thought was ‘damn another day there is no point trying to trade’ (I tried the previous 2 days).
Having laid there for 5 minutes I thought that it would be a good idea to get out, firstly to stop me attempting to trade with an unreliable connection and secondly because I didn’t want it to be a day like any other… after a couple more minutes of fantasizing about going to the airport and jumping on the next random flight for an adventure I remembered I had my son this weekend, and equally exciting experience although I couldn’t do both.
Then it came to me! Having posted at the end of last year HERE about things I’d like to do in 2014 (2 completed already, I better write another list!) I decided to go snowboarding! I hadn’t ever done it before so didn’t know what to expect, all my friends at work I had to go alone which was initially disappointing but on reflection I think made it that bit more exciting.
About 3 hours later I finished up pretty shattered with a few bumps and a coating of snow but it was definitely worth it. I don’t suppose I’ll top it tomorrow but you never know!! I’m open to suggestions!!
