22 Dec 40 things to do before I’m 40

I had intended to write this post sometime next year, but whilst searching for an email this morning I found this list from January 2013. The email is to my husband and it is only the start. I had intended it to be 40 things to do before I’m 40 so I’ll need to add to this in the New Year but I thought I’d see where I was up to.

1.Watch all 3 girls in a dance show [Watched two in a dance show and one in their Nativity!]

2. Eat at The Fat Duck

3. Walk up Snowdon again [We did this in 2013 as practice for hubby completing the National 3 Peaks]

4. See Phantom of the Opera [Saw a fabulous version in 2013 with my neighbour in Liverpool]

5. Visit Istanbul

6. Visit Jordan

7. Run 10 miles [Proudly I completed the Wirral Half Marathon in October 2013 so actually ran 13 miles]

8. Read Anna Karenina

9. Resign [Done – Read my post on Changing from Lawyer to Blogger here]

10. Get new job [sort of]

11. Sell wedding dress and buy something frivolous [Not sure I still want to do this, having taken these photos last year]



12. Eat at L’Enclume

13. Take the ferry across the Mersey

14. Visit Portmeirion [We had a fab trip here in September 2013]


15. Alton towers (again)

16. Go to Lapland

17. Learn to Ski [Really didn’t think I would get chance to do this but we did ski this year!]


18. Go to a Festival [V Festival last few years crazily too]

to be continued….

    This is a great list Karen and yes I can’t believe you have never taken a ferry across the Mersey either. Mind you neither have I despite living 20 minutes away from Liverpool for 34 years. Aw about your wedding dress you never know when you might wear it again. Mine was in the loft for 14 years, and then last year I wore it again to a Brides night out for charity. 100 brides in a room was surreal but it was a fantastic night. Enjoy ticking things off before you turn 40 xx
