As my “BIG O” approaches with extreme speed I am being asked what am I going to do? Am I going somewhere flash or lining up an extravagant gift of jewellery??
To be honest I am already escaping to my little spot of paradise later in the year and extravagant gifts don’t really appeal to me!
so…..I wound up the dusty cogs in my brain and had a think about what I could do, that would last the whole year and without the need of a huge cash out lay!!
I have decided to compile a list of 50 things, that I would like to do and spread them throughout the year, starting from my birthday in May!!
This have given me time to reflect on my life so far. It has most definitely been one of experiences and not always good but I have had some very exciting and memorable ones too! Obviously the birth of my daughter, her growing years were something I would not have missed for the world and she has grown into a wonderfully strong young lady,that I am very proud of!
Some of my other memorable moments have been in the form of: flying lessons, skid pad training, rally experience day, army assault courses raising money for charity, a drive of Lotus Elise, Driving the Ridgeway in a landrover plus a ride in my all time favourite car, an AC Cobra!! A bit of a petrol head really 🙂
Compared to these things my list looks somewhat tame but they are things I am excited to experience!! I am really looking forward to planning out the year, having photographic evidence to make a huge collage for my wall! I can then reflect on the fun, when times with my MS are not so good!
Example of list items:
- Find a crop circle
- Ride a Tandom Bicycle
- Teach myself to Juggle
- Fly a Kite
- Have my nose pierced
- Drive a Steam Train
- Visit the National History Museum
- Make a time capsule
- Have an abseiling lesson
- Have a picnic watching a local cricket match
- Visit 5 National Trust Properties in one week!
- Go Kayaking
- Play Pitch and Putt somewhere random
As you can see there is nothing earth shattering but lots of little things I keep saying I am going to do and this way hopefully I will have a fun year!!
I promise to keep you posted as I go along 🙂
Have a good week!!
Lou 🙂 xxx
