Completing number 37 off my 40 at 40 list – make a pot

Disappointed that a chesty cough had put paid to me competing in the Lancaster half marathon and didn’t feel well enough to do fell walking.  Thought lets do something off my list.


Having previously Google’d where to make pots, found a place in Penrith that looked good.  So decided lets go make a pot!!

Completing No9 off my 40 at 40 List – Yorkshire 3 Peaks

Next on the list was Number 9 – The Yorkshire 3 peaks.  I have not really explored Yorkshire, so was really looking forward to doing this.  I understood that it took between 8-12 hours so set the challenge of doing it in 10 hours.  It felt quite a task doing such a long walk (24.1 miles) but felt confident in completing it.

Number 18 on my 40 at 40 list – The London Marathon

So I’m doing the London marathon again! 10 years since my very first one. Apparently at nearly 40 I’m coming into my prime.

I first started running in 1997, my now ex husband made me allergic to cycling. This was done over a few years of constantly being left behind, getting to gates and him saying “you ok?” And then speeding off. So I sold my beloved Cannondale and thought ok what can I do to keep fit.Continue reading “Number 18 on my 40 at 40 list – The London Marathon”

Completing No 21 off my 40 at 40 list – Learn to Pole Dance

So I have now had my Pole dancing virginity taken away from me!!

Always fancied having a go at Pole dancing and learning the tricks and moves, rather than my failed attempts in nightclubs after one too many Gin and tonics.Continue reading “Completing No 21 off my 40 at 40 list – Learn to Pole Dance”

Completing No 10 off my 40 at 40 list – Climbing Wall

So on our last twitter walk, Si said he would be brave enough to take me to the climbing wall and show me the ropes!

Kendal climbing wall is one of the tallest walls in the country. The wall is a customer of mine, I was cheeky and tapped them up for some free passes including gear hire and he gave me some rope so I can practice the figure of 8 knot needed for climbing.Continue reading “Completing No 10 off my 40 at 40 list – Climbing Wall”

Completing number 34 off my 40 at 40 list – Skinny Dip

So I thought it would be a bit warmer to skinny dip in the warm sea on holiday in Turkey than the cold Lakeland waters. I do have the fantasy of doing it off a boat jumping into the sea but have a fear of being out of my depth in water.Continue reading “Completing number 34 off my 40 at 40 list – Skinny Dip”

Completing number 39 off my 40 at 40 list – photocopy boobs

This ended up on the list as a bit of fun, pretty much along with alot of other things on my list. If you saw the photocopier in our office, I would have done myself an injury trying to photocopy any body parts on it.
So having just done number 23 off my list ouch! Sam (my beauty therapist)asked what else was on my list which we could do. I said “well there is photocopy my boobs!” She said come on let’s see if the photocopier is on.
We were in luck,it was, luckily I had an easy access dress on. Photocopying oneself is not as easy as I thought!!
First attempt boobs were in the wrong place and just got my face, but second attempt was successful!!
So thank you Sam for your assistance in holding the lid, pressing the copy
Button and keeping watch!
We certainly did have a giggle with both number 23 and 39 🙂

Completing number 23 off my 40 at 40 – Hollywood wax


Having had regularly bikini waxes for more years than I care to remember, I’d never considered having a Hollywood. I’m sure the different styles of waxing cause confusion and wonderment to many peoples minds!

Completing No 2 off my 40 at 40 list – Indoor skydive

So what are the chances that a Bank holiday Monday will be bad weather?!! The forecast was not good and was definitely not a fell walking day so decided to tackle another thing on my 40 at 40 list.
