  1. Great concept! Think I should try this. I’m 54, so maybe 55 by 55? Seems like a lot to do before next February, so I better get going! Good luck with your list!!

  2. I don’t know why but your lists always crack me up! I think maybe it’s the random order ;-) There are some big ambitions on that list but I like that you don’t seem to mind what order they happen in- like publish a book before taking a writing course for example. It’s funny to find myself on there too , hee hee. A holiday no less! I don’t go on those often. I should put it on my own list ;-) Geenie.x

    • I’m glad they make you laugh! :P Oh, it’s totally random! Mind you, I am working on a book so that feels more realistic than taking a writing course at the moment. Speaking of, I got your book in the post this morning. Thank you so so much! I can’t wait to read it! :D Love that photo of you on the back cover. It makes me smile every time I see it. I very rarely go on a holiday so I need more of them and you’re my favourite person to go away with! x
