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

100 Words - Life's Little Mysteries


I'm sure it's not just me but in my twenty years as a parent I have never been able to clear up any of those little mysteries that seem to happen with great regularly.
  • No-one, other than me, ever seems to be able to change a toilet roll
  • Whenever I send someone to the corner shop, there's never any change
  • I buy a roll of sellotape a week but can never find any when I need it
  • Why do I look at my wrist for the time, even though I haven't worn a watch for about 12 months?

What’s yours?
