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 Washi Tape Collection

I can't remember where I first discovered washi tape but I can remember the first set I bought (a set of 10 thin rolls of washi tape - all different colours).  I had become hooked on watching "decorating your Filofax" videos on YouTube and needed some of the action.

I probably don't have as much washi tape as everyone thinks I do but I do keep it topped up and enjoy seeking out slightly unusual designs.  Anyway, some of you asked to see the collection, so here it is!
