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

Limited Edition Chocolate Soreen

soreen, chocolate loaf,
Soreen are celebrating 75 years of malt loaf goodness by creating chocolate malt loaf and I've had the chance to try it!  Now, you know I don't recommend anything unless I love it and this is definitely something a little bit different.  

I promise you - get this before it disappears, never to be seen again.

The original recipe remains the same since Soreen first began baking malt loaf in 1938!  It's lovely with a little bit of butter on or toast it for a mix of warm squidge and cripyness!  I also love their lunchbox loaves which are fab for sticking in my handbag for snacking on the move (banana flavour is a huge hit in this house) - great energy boosters!

To find out more you can follow @SoreenHQ on Twitter or like them on their Facebook page.  You can also enter their competition to win one of 75 Chocolate Soreen Loaves.  

Limited edition Soreen Chocolate Loaf is available from 25th April in most main Asda stores but is only being stocked for six weeks!  It is available from 20th May in Morrisons for three weeks and from 23rd May in Sainsbury's also for three weeks.
