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

Today I Was Called A Cunt...

...and IN WRITING, from a PR company that I'm working with, which sort of makes it official, doesn't it? 

For those who don't already know (where HAVE you been?), I'm a bit of a pedant when it comes to the written word. Spelling mistakes leap off the page at me, grammatical errors make my teeth itch, txtspk - even on texts - makes me want to scratch my eyes out and I think we should all just learn to touch type properly slow down a little bit and take more care over the words we are sharing with others.

Ooohhhh deep!!   Anyway...

I'm a little disappointed that I haven't gravitated to the higher echelon of actual 'disco cunt' but it looks like my reputation precedes me and I still have something to strive for. To paraphrase the words of Mark Knopfler: 
"Wanting something is far better than having it."
Onwards and upwards. To Cuntdom...
