20-Aug-12 Marathon choice and Relative paths!

In Blog, Personal on August 20, 2012 at 8:07 am

So after a long weekend, it’s now time for an update on my personal
moments; partly to keep my readers up dated, but partly to push me to make some progress!

If you recall, my personal moments (or goals) were the following:

– Run a half marathon
– Finish the loft (flooring, insulation and train set)
– Visit a new island in the UK
– Cook and Eat a fish I catch
– Get my blog on the freshly pressed homepage on WordPress
– Discover and meet a new relative

Today, I plan to only update you on the first and final one, as these are the only ones that have made any tangible progress! I’ve now realised how setting yourself targets in the summer months is almost as stupid as making them on 1st January!

In terms of the first target, I have one half marathon choice in early October in Dorking. If I do not decide to do this one, I am then looking at the new year, so tonight I need to make a final decision, as only 7 weeks to go!

Mo, I need your inspiration!

In terms of the last target to track a new relative, I have been using the Ancestry application over the weekend to force me to document my roots.

Hmm. Hardly an inspiring image (after Mo)!

The big lingering question is whether my Grandad had any additional brothers or sisters. I know he had a twin who died at an early age in the first world war, but it is unlikely he was married or a father, which would limit the new relative path I am searching for!

I’m hoping to get an answer on this one this evening from my eldest cousin, who I think has already tracked this information down!

Let’s hope my update next week has some positive news on all my personal moments, as slow progress thus far!
