When I first started thinking about my things to put on my 40 at 40 list, flying in a helicopter was high up on it. To see hills I’ve climbed from a birds eye view was a must.
So half through the year and my big birthday!! The year has flown by and cannot believe that had completed 30 things off my list. Climbing Snowdon was on my list and thought well if we are climbing one, might as well do all 3!! So did this before flying out to Ibiza. The weather was glorious.
So another year draws to an end and what a year it has been. 2012 was a mixed year and with a new start in 2013 with lots of challenges to look forward, it was going to be a busy one. People have said that I have exhausted them with my antics or inspired them to do their own challenges. So here is my review of my 2013.
When my peers were out getting drunk and experimenting, I was plunged into being a grown up as I moved to the lakes with my boyfriend at the time.

Learn to knife throw, this came about as I used to have this on my twitter bio and when I was compiling my list thought I must actually learn to do this. Me, knives mmm what’s the worst that could happen???
This was one of those items on my list that I didn’t in my wildest dreams would happen. But after my magazine article was published, I used the fee to pay for it. As I’ve said before life’s too short not to enjoy it.
I can’t believe I’d never had a food fight before, the sheltered life that I’ve led! When I’ve been talking with friends about it, we said it would be more fun to have it, somewhere that you really shouldn’t! Continue reading “Completing number 38 off my 40 at 40 list – have a food fight”
So turning 40 was not as bad as I’d thought it would be. The night before the big day, I was a blubbering mess dwelling on the things I hadn’t achieved rather than all the things I had. Continue reading “Turning 40….”
