    What an awesome read. Thank you. Just turned 41 years old in feb. single mum of 8 and 17 year old kids. I just started kickboxing class and have taken up base guitar. Lovin life!

  3. Careful there with number 3. You might want to be a bit more specific! Love your blog.

  4. I like this, Its like looking in the mirror. Well done!

  5. You could just about finish the list if you just by the van and take off across America or Canada or Europe or wherever. You might sing somewhere, learn the songs, learn the language, fall in love, get married, learning to drum, etc. Sounds like you need to get on the road.

  6. Great list…I had to look some of the abbreviations up, so I learned things today, which is always a bonus. 🙂

  7. I like all the 30’s, especially 33 and 37. Best of luck on achieving your goals!!
