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

PINK FRIDAY 3 - Filofax Friday

Surely you should have known that I couldn't let a PINK FRIDAY during Breast Cancer awareness month go by without a mention of the beloved Filofax?  Here is a fantastic chance to make a donation to a worthwhile cause and pick up on the return of the retro organiser.

Filofax have produced a special edition leather Pocket-sized leather Filofax in pink for the Breast Cancer Campaign.  It features specially printed breast cancer awareness pages and stickers to remind you when to check your breasts as well as unique pink dividers, rulers and papers.  The limited edition retails at £44 and for each organiser sold, Filofax will dontate £2.50 to Breast Cancer Campaign.

The original pink pocket leather-look Filofax is still available.  This retails at £24 and incorporates the same inserts as the limited edition.  For each of these organisers sold, Filofax will donate £2.20 to the charity.  There is also a mini Breast Cancer Campaign pen available.  You can find more details here.

Finally, there are a few Filofax accessories that are worth mentioning (yes, that's right - they don't just make organisers any more).  There is a purse (which is on my wishlist if anyone is feeling generous...), an accessories case and a passport cover.  The accessories are available from £24 and for each one sold a donation of £2 is made to the Breast Cancer Campaign.

You can find more details on the Filofax UK website.
