My review of the year – July – September 2013

July
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.

My review of the year, January – March 2013

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.

Completing number 12 off my 40 at 40 list – Special brownies

20131006-093008.jpg
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. Playing housewife, rather than thinking have I got enough money to go out and get pissed, it was more like have we got enough money to buy furniture for our unfurnished flat or food. Like with lots of things in life, it felt right at the time and I wouldn’t be where I am today if I hadn’t moved to the lakes all those years ago.

Completing number 6 off my 40 at 40 list – Do the TT course as a pillion

20131001-223920.jpg

The TT course on the Isle of Man is such an iconic place. Having been used to being a pillion whilst we had our motorbike, really fancied doing the course and so it went on my list.
When we sold the bike a few years ago, still clung on to my leathers just in case.

Completing number 16 off my 40 at 40 list – Wild camp and see the sunrise

20131001-194201.jpg

Having seen my twitter friend’s sunrise pictures from wild camping in the hills, I really wanted to experience it too. I must admit that I’m more of a hotel girl than camping girl! Continue reading “Completing number 16 off my 40 at 40 list – Wild camp and see the sunrise”

Completing number 31 off my 40 at 40 list – learn to knife throw

20131001-164325.jpg
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???

Completing number 26 off my 40 at 40 list – The Orient Express

20130916-184044.jpg

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.

Completing number 38 off my 40 at 40 list – have a food fight

20130902-211047.jpg

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”
