The 9th annual 100 Day Project began on Sunday just gone, 13th February, and as in previous years, I'm planning on using the 100 days to clear up a bunch of unfinished projects. This is the 5th year I will have taken part. What’s on my UFO list? The Royal Ballet School journal Moving the … Continue reading The 100 Day Project | 2022
Roughly half-way down my 100 Day Project list of UFOs, at number five, were the words fill in the gaps in The Nephew's albums.
