This makes me feel as though I'm (a) clearly not sure where my time is going, and (b) perhaps spending my spare time on unusual things? I think I could have only colored 2 in the list (although I started reading them less close as the magnitude of this set in!) You're doing quite well with all yours!!!

Nice one Sarah. It's a fun one this and now we know a little more about you. Funny, I too had Chickenpox twice and then 2 years ago I got Shingles! Very painful and all down to stress.

I also wondered about the Channel Crossing counting as a cruise - a bit of a stretch I guess.

Oh, this is such a great meme. I love reflecting and then seeing what you have in common with others.
