Where it all started

Happy New Year!

Why start a blog now? Part of my bucket list I guess,  and like a lot of people I have one, although its been more of a dream list that I might get to do if the opportunity turns up without me actually making the effort to get things done.

So I turn 30 in 2018 and during a long chat with my housemate Siobhan we were talking about how I was going to celebrate, and as I’m not a ‘big party with lots of people staring at me’ kind of person, I figured I’d do something different. However I am the kind of person who likes to make (fun) things last as long as possible, so instead of one big party I’m going to go do as many things on my bucket list as possible. How to make your 30th last all year 🙂  

The original idea was to come up with 30 things and do them, but as I was writing the list I ended up with almost 100 ideas, opps. So had to cut that into two lists of ‘do this year’ and ‘do in my lifetime’. I’m going to start with doing or planning 30 things, then I’ll get people to suggest things from off my list (no adding crazy things and expecting me to do them lol).
