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

She Talks To Rainbows

We've been having some CR-AZY weather over in Lancashire this week.  I've gone from wearing a loose, floaty top that lets air waft around my armpits to wrapping up in a hat and scarf to stand in the street almost ankle-deep in rain water (work related... don't ask).  

Anyway, the weird weather has actually brought beautiful rainbows day after day although it's always at a time when I haven't got my big camera with me so these were snapped on my phone.  

And I still haven't found that post of gold, either.  Look how close I was at one point!
