    Great idea! though what on earth is Zorbing? is that on this earth? Ooh what tattoo do you want? so… you’ve made homemade ice-cream hats off to you! What’s next? 😉 x

    • Its a fantastic idea isn’t it, it’s very good for getting me motivated. Zorbing is another word for sphereing, which is rolling down a hill in a massive ball http://www.spheremania.com/bookings/voucher1.php. Havent decided on a tattoo, I’m very fickle and it has to be something I will always love, so that’s a hard one. I have done a few more things, so look out for an update soon, and I’m thinking along the lines of a little giveaway to go with the post! Thanks for reading and commenting 🙂

    Fab idea!
    I often feel frustrated at never achieving all the million things I want to do in life so Day Zero may be the way forward!
