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

I'm Loving... Threesome

Never did I think I would have a blog post with the title "Threesome" in it and, if I'm being totally honest, it's probably not what your Google search or inquisitive mind is looking for here.  Sorry and all that.

A short while back I was flicking through the billions and trillions of Sky channels and found a British comedy called Threesome (I wasn't looking for Sexcetera, honest).  I've managed to watch all of series 1 from the beginning and we're now into series 2.

The premise of the show is that Alice is turning 30 and feeling old so her boyfriend (Mitch) and their gay best-mate-cum-flatmate (Ritchie) decide to give her a drink and drug-fueled present that makes her not feel old - a threesome.  A few weeks after the party, Alice finds out she's pregnant at almost the same time Mitch finds out he is infertile... 

There were hilarious guest spots from Pauline "Mrs Doyle" McLynn and Adam Garcia (swoon...) and it's probably the only time that I'll admit to a bit of a girl crush on the female lead.  Highlights of the first series were the lads going out and getting smashed when they were on a sober-promise to Alice, a space hopper fancy dress costume for Alice when she was almost at her due date and the three Nanas-to-be trying to make out the arrangement is normal and cool when they just really don't know how to handle it all.

I promise you, it's way more funny than I'm making it out to be.

Anyway - the new series has started on Comedy Central (look out for a repeat of episode one and catch up quick) and it's all about trying to be stay cool but bring up baby and if anyone wants to buy me series 1 and 2 as a gift then you only need to ask for my address *wink*
