30 before thirty: bucket list. Here is 'THE LIST'.
When you look at my 30:thirty hit list, you may notice the few things I've had to, or still have to, achieve to succeed. A handful of these are somewhat physical feats and some I have not really been looking that forward to. Let me back pedal a little... There's been some physical items on … Continue reading Wheelie fat time
I'm currently trying to calm my heart rate after having just, well technically, completed a tick. One that I have spent many hours researching, enquiringly about and now working on. Here I am, nervous as hell but excited as anything at this achievement. One of my favourite people in the whole world gave me this … Continue reading The writer writes
Well, all I can say is wow. Wow because amazing. Wow because terrifying. Maybe terrifying is a slight over exaggeration, but incredibly effing scary, yes. For those who read my blog religiously (legends) or whether you’ve stumbled across this post by Googling the wrong thing, let me give you a bit of background. I am … Continue reading To tree or not to tree
You’re off to great places. Today is your day. Your mountain is waiting. So get on your way! Quote by Dr Seuss - Oh the Places you’ll go. I am sitting on a 50 something seater coach that’s headed to Australia’s South West from Perth. I have sat on many similar journeys whilst travelling overseas and … Continue reading Caped
So here we are. Already half way through February and not quite half way through my bucket list. Knowing time was of the essence and that it was going to fly by at nobody’s mercy, I made the big call to smash 3 ticks in February, with every intention of doing the same in March! … Continue reading Floating
The way life tends to work, is not every thing always goes to plan. This in mind, I knew very well that I was not going to nail every tick the first time. And oh didn't I fail spectacularly at sailing on the first attempt (take a look here for a good read, even if … Continue reading Holy ship!
As January disappeared in a magical cloud of dust, I realised I'd better get moving with these bucket list ticks. I made the big call late in the month that February's goal would be 3 big ticks. It was time to annihilate this list and glide in to my thirties with a nice comfortable achievement. … Continue reading I am the lady.
Several weeks ago I was asked to contribute to my parents 30 year wedding anniversary renewal ceremony! Not only was the renewal top secret, so were my words! I didn't quite know what to say on that night, but knew I wanted to say a speech different to what is normally heard. Not because I … Continue reading What is love?
I sat down today and started having a really good think about how I wanted to celebrate my actual birthday. I know I am well and truly in to my 30th birth year celebrations (ie the thirty before thirty bucket list), but how should I really roll in to my thirties? "Doesn't matter, you've still … Continue reading A decade of ticks
Mid last year, whilst galavanting around the islands of Croatia and Greece, I became acutely interested in the little black spiked creatures of the sea around there. "What are they?" "They're a plant, no?" "They're alive???" "That's a creature?" "What a scary looking creature!" "People eat them?" "Back pedal again, people eat them???" Endless Google … Continue reading Please don’t get in my belly
