|Me at Hadrian's Wall|
Speaking of Jemima - she and I finally went out together to to a night of pub golf! We did 9 "holes" in 8 bars along Deansgate locks and we ended up joint winners with each other! We also went out dressed as each other in Jemima and Emily inspired outfits - complete with cat ears and hair roses - and introduced ourselves to people as each other. It was a fun night and a great way to spend time with my best friend before I fly back to Cayman. However I really wish we'd done Pub Golf already when we were younger. My body cannot handle alcohol and late night McDonalds like it used to and I spent most of yesterday in bed with a killer hangover and suspected food poisoning. Ah well - at least we did it.

our Pub Golf night out
A few other things have been checked off the list in the last year or so too - last summer Jemima and I went on a trip to Blackpool and FINALLY had our fortunes told! It was an interesting experience and I'm not sure how much if any of it was accurate, but fun all the same. I've also done a few things in Cayman such as running through the fountains (not Piccadilly gardens as originally intended but the Camana Bay ones are pretty much exactly the same so I'm counting it). And I've obviously seen so many sunsets in Cayman since living there. They are seriously spectacular.
Oh oh oh! I also finally had the time and money to go back to South Africa to visit my grandad. I'm not going to go into the trip much here, unfortunately my grandad's behaviour whilst I was there has left an enormous rift between us which really ruined it for me. But the game drives were fun and we saw lots of wildlife, including some amazing rhino, lion, hyena and elephant sightings, so it wasn't all bad.
One thing that's bothered me about the list is the item "Go to the Dogs". I made the decision to cross this off without actually going as since making the list originally it's come to light just how bad the poor dogs are treated in the dog racing business, and it's not something I wish to support any longer.
So - 22 months left to complete the list! That's the only race I want to be a part of, and the race is on!
