Things To Do Before I Turn 50

  (also known as my "TA-DA" list as opposed to a "to do" list) It was my 49th birthday a few days ago and this got me thinking. Any birthday that ends with a zero always feels a bit like milestone or a landmark and, when I hit the big "five-o" in 2022, I don't want huge parties or celebrations but I would like to have ticked a few things off my low-effort bucket list.   I see these things as a way to improve my mental and physical health, plus a few slightly off-the-wall experiences that would make for great memories.  Start running again and include the following: Lead a C25K group again  Participate in parkrun EVERY week where possible  < ongoing (now parkrun Run Director too) Visit local landmarks whilst running  Train for a long race - building up from 5k > 10k > 10 miles > half marathon, with a couple of longer trail races mixed in  Lose a lot bit of weight Post more on Instagram or give the blog a bit of a reboot < ongoing Look at

The Lunatic Is Taking Over The Asylum

In my thinly-veiled attempt to take over the blogosphere, today I am omnipresent.

I am "Blogger On The Spot" over at the Babyrambles blog so hop on over there and have a read of the interview (I felt ever so important).  Emily appears to be impressed but I think she's actually agog!

When you've finished there then have a look at my Filofax review  over on the Philofaxy blog... of course, that's if Laurie hasn't smudged the text by drooling over yet another Planner.

And finally, in case you missed it, I took part in the Guest Post Day yesterday and swapped with Karin from Café Bébé whilst she posted here.  Coincidently, we both planned to write about the same subject and found out that we have a lot more in common that we originally realised.
