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  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 new a career path or additional income stre

Cybermummy 2011 - the 50 day countdown



Cybermummy '11 - the UK's premier blogging conference devoted to parent bloggers - is within touching distance.  Just 50 days to go!  The main event is on 25th June 2011.

I am off down to the Big Smoke with only Manda as my chaperone (the blind leading the blind springs to mind here). I plan to do plenty of schmoozing, attend a few workshops and generally meet up with many fantastic bloggers, new and old, some whom I am proud to call my friends, even though we have never met.

Who is making all this possible? Well, you may have noticed in my sidebar a little notification saying that "Your Baby Can Read" is my sponsor.  YBCR is very kindly covering all my expenses for the conference.



I was lucky enough to review their product last year for the Rainbow Awards team and it proved a massive hit especially as the learning was incorporated into play time.  See the bottom of this post for more information about Your Baby Can Read.

Oh! What's that! Me?  Speaking at Cybermummy?  Well, you lucky, lucky people.  Yes, it's true!  I have been chosen to be part of the Crowdsourced Keynote team and I will be reading out a specially selected blog post from last year to help round up Cybermummy '11.  You can hear me speak between 5pm and 6pm and I will be counting heads to make sure you're all there!
