40 Things To Do

I’m not really one for lists.

A terrible procrastinor and spontaneous at heart. Lists mostly spoil my fun.

However as old age looms, I’ve been working on a more positive list. A list to help celebrate a milestone birthday. (The clue’s in the title.)

I know.

How is that even possible?

I don’t look a day over 30 right? 😉

So this *shudder* list is an attempt to make my 40th year a year worth celebrating.

To challenge and put me out of my comfort zone and hopefully to keep me so busy I won’t have a spare moment to stop and look for grey hairs glitter strands…where did I put those tweezers…

It’s still a work in progress and open to suggestion but hopefully by my birthday* I’ll have a finalised idea of how to make next year a truly awesome one.

A mixture of challenge, adventure and all round outdoors awesomeness.

Some I’ll need help with – Crib Goch, I’m looking at you, and if anyone wants to join me on any – give me a shout, I’m sure you can’t ALL be psychopaths…

40 Things

  1. Wow, well boredom certainly won’t be showing up in your 41st year that’s for sure. As for the invite, um.. I think I’ll stick to just reading about your challenges sat on a nice warm sofa with hot brew in hand. I shall look forward to the many posts of 2019, hope you have a wonderful birthday.

  2. An earthcache made the list after all! Hop the pond and log an earthcache for a 2-fer. 40 is no big deal but it is a good excuse to get out and have some fun


    1. I don’t think I’ve been good enough to get a ticket to the states from Santa for Christmas. I’ll make sure to research a really special earth cache, if I’ve going to do one – it needs to be special. 😀

  3. I’m still liking the jersey walking idea…..technically that would mean you leave the country too? Or does jersey not count??
