And plenty of this...
But a few days of celebrating isn't enough! So, over the last few months I've been planning how I can make this particular birthday last for a whole year.
Like most people, I've built up a pretty extensive list of things to do and this year, being something of a milestone, seems like a good time to try and get some of them ticked off. So I've come up with a list of 40 things to do over the next year. Some big, some small. Mostly new things, but also some old favourites.
I'm trying to avoid the term 'bucket list' as that really suggests a list of things you really must do before you die and this plan isn't really like that - no trips to the Grand Canyon or seeing the Northern Lights here. This is just a list of mostly fairly small but, to me, quite significant things. Things I've been meaning to try, eat, read or achieve plus a few extra fun things along the way.
It should be a good year!
