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

My London Themed Filofax

I am a bit obsessed by London, Union Jacks and my Filofax - that goes without saying.  
You only have to take a look at two of my Pinterest boards to see what I'm on about.



If you follow me on Twitter (@nickieohara) you will have seen me tweeting about my yearning for a London Vintage binder from Paperchase. And then I remembered that I had a bright red Filofax, a few postcards from London hidden away somewhere, some London-themed card, a London Underground pen and an souvenir keyring that I could use as a zipper charm so I set about adapting and customising what I was already using.


Here are the results - and if you want to see it in more detail you can have a look at this mini video I made. 




I'm LOVING it!
