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

My Kitchen - A Weekend Vlog

A bit of fun on a Saturday.

Pippa challenged me to "vlog" my kitchen.  I believe she possibly thought it was going to be as bad as my fridge but I'm afraid that my husband is quite kitchen proud and gets a bit OCD where the kitchen is concerned.  Apologies for the crappy quality but the video has been taken on my phone.  I REALLY want a Flip Camera but I will have to wish hard for that.  Anyway, for your delectation... my kitchen

Edit:  I realised that I'd missed out a corner of the kitchen with a massive design fault, so here it is...

  • Vlog = video blog (I'm just finding my feet with these at the moment)
  • You can follow Geoff on his @GeoffTheDog1 Twitter account
  • The very famous Fridge of a Bad Parent blog post

Do you fancy showing me round your kitchen?  Just take a quick video let me know when you're done so I can come and have a nosy.
