Otherwise I haven't done much. I need to get into gear with the courses I'm studying. I have 3 assignments to complete before the end of January and the first (a dramatisation of a story) has to be submitted by 8 Jan, so I need to get a move on with that.
During 2009 I took part in a Photo-a-Week challenge and here is a mosaic of all the photos I took.

Yes, if you count, you'll see that I missed one week.
In 2010 I'm going to have another go at a photo-a-day. Last time I tried I managed 90 days, so I am very much going to take it a week (or even a day!) at a time and see how it goes.
But I do find these challenges useful, otherwise it's all too easy to leave the camera in the bag and get out of practice.
