After completing my 40 at 40 list, it got me thinking about other things I wanted to do. https://adventuresofcumbrianblondie.co.uk/2012/06/17/the-final-list-ginas-big-40-at-40/

So my fabulist was born, no time frame just a list of things, adventures, experiences I wanted to do before I die. Though not planning on that happening anytime soon. https://adventuresofcumbrianblondie.co.uk/2014/10/19/my-new-fabulist/

Just recently a couple of people I know have lost their battle with cancer. The indescriminate disease.  One surviving partner said to me “keep doing your adventures, live life to the full. Fiona was just  like you and always did”.   On my gravestone it will say “she lived life to the full, had adventures and inspired people to have theirs”.   I’ve just been looking through my list and got a few things planned to do off it over the next few weeks. But there are a few new additions to this extensive list.

Do the zip wire in Snowdonia – I did what was the longest one of my 40@40 list. This one opened a few weeks afterwards.
