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/
It has just been my birthday, another year older none the wiser, well maybe just a teeny bit. I was reading an article in my monthly girly Mag, which was 30 things I know by the age of 30 and inspired this blog.

It is great it is such a short flying time and the transport system in Amsterdam makes it so easy to explore the city.An incredibly early start mean we were at the hotel by 11am, no time for duty free inContinue reading “A tick off my fabulist – visit Amsterdam “

I like the disapline of training for a marathon. It gives me the extra drive to go out in all weathers, which IContinue reading “Marathon Girl “
I have always loved photography and the science behind cameras. Being mesmerised as a child with the family Kodak camera with the screw on flash cube. Taking photos was something that was done on special occasions. Well it was in my household. The waiting game to see your pictures and then discard half of themContinue reading “Photographic student for the day”
Back in January I was having a squiffy Monday dinner out with one of my oldest friend Cate. We were talking about my fabulist and she suggested doing London in style. So we set a date for end of November.
Rather than queue up with the commoners to have a drink in the Shard, we decided to book in for breakfast. The Shard is at 309 metres the second tallest building in England and third tallest in Europe.
This is a delayed blog post as I actually did this back in February. My first foray into racing and because I’ve heard that it’s a good night out, that’s why it made it onto my new list. Being a social butterfly things need to be booked in the diary. So a date was setContinue reading “To the dogs”
