Day Zero Project

So, I feel inspired to start the 101 Things in 1001 Days project. In fact I'm starting today because 1001 days from now is December 31st 2013 and that's too good to pass up.

(I'm stealing the idea and the date from karohi - thanks!)

I've not quite reached 101 things but I feel that if I start adding more to the list just to fill it up then they won't really be things that I actually want to do or am likely to finish, so I think I'll stick with what I've got for now.

2. Buy or collect three teapots (new or second hand)
3. See the sun rise
4. Do five spontaneous things
5. Donate blood at least once
