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

How We Use Our Whiteboard

I used to have a whiteboard on the wall in my home office. That was, until the grandchildren discovered the joy of being able to draw on it, using my multi-coloured pens. Gone was the space I had for my scheduling and instead were cute little drawings and notes from the girls. A joy to read but not so great for my productivity.

Whiteboards have always fitted into the corporate world for me. I used them to display notes and prompts when delivering courses a few years ago, and with my new career in advertising, my professional life now revolves around the sales figures on the whiteboard. Back at home, it was fascinating to see how productive and interactive the girls where when given a dry erase whiteboard as oppose to the usual pens and paper. 
How We Use Our Whiteboard - Wedge Whiteboards are manufactured in the UK, come in a wide range of orientations / sizes and are available to buy on Amazon.  I would not hesitate to recommend Wedge Whiteboards and I would also love to hear your suggestions on how you would use a whiteboard in your home or office.


I needed a whiteboard at home for my scheduling, however I also needed a dry wipe whiteboard for my grandchildren to use when they came around to visit. The solution? The A2 Wedge Whiteboard from Wedge Whiteboards. This triangular prism sits perfectly on our table and the fact that it is double sided means that there are no arguments about who has more space to draw on. We have been able to revisit some ‘old-fashioned’ games such as battleships, nought and crosses and hangman. We also use the whiteboard for homework task without wasting reams of paper. It is also encouraging to see ‘analogue interaction’ from the grandchildren rather than them bent over a tablet or a mobile phone. 

There are four pens and two erasers provided with the board, but we have also been using our Chalkola markers on it too. As a huge bonus, Wedge Whiteboards are also magnetic, so my youngest grandchild who is only 19 months old can also play with some magnetic shapes and interact with his siblings.

When the grandchildren are not here, the A2 Wedge Whiteboard does not sit around unused and unloved. On the contrary, I use it every day to leave little notes for my husband, mainly reminders like ‘put the bins out’ or ‘please pick up a pint of milk’. When we went on holiday, it was the perfect way to leave a checklist of tasks and reminders for my sons who were house-and-dog-sitting.
