It’s my birthday today, I am now 32…I think it still classes as early 30s but I genuinely didn’t think I was that old. My mind is still set at 30, it didn’t occur to me that 2 years have past, that my baby is now nearly 3 years old. It’s got me thinking though of what I would like to do or achieve before I am 40, I remember when I was younger I wanted to visit New York, I couldn’t wait to go shopping and explore Bloomingdales, Tiffany’s and Barneys. I never went but I also don’t have the inclination to go now, the thought of going to a city full of skyscrapers doesn’t excite me anymore, I’d rather have space and nature around me. Another thing I used to want to do was sky diving but since having Lucas that has lost its appeal. I also wanted to go on a hot air balloon which I haven’t done yet. One thing I did do was go to India, I was torn between India and Mexico and ended up going to India for 3 months when I was 19.

So I really hope by writing these down I will be more likely to do them x

  • Take Lucas to Disney World
  • Go to the Opera, I’m going to aim for anywhere but ideally it would be in Italy
  • Have afternoon tea at the Ritz
  • Move house
  • See a show at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville
  • Fly in a hot air balloon
  • Learn a second language, I got a B in French GCSE and a C in German GCSE and I can’t remember anything other than hello, how are you. I would love to start French again or Spanish
  • Go on a spa day
  • As I mentioned above I have always wanted to sky dive and although that desire disappeared since having lucas, I could still do an indoor one
  • Take Lucas to Lapland
  • See the Northern Lights
  • Go on a cruise
  • Visit my cousin in New Zealand
  • Go on a weekend away with my blogging buddies
  • Go on safari, I have this in my mind for my 40th birthday
  • Go axe throwing with my friends
  • Find a local pilates class and attend regularly. I attended Pilates before I was pregnant then went to pre natal yoga and I would love to start pilates again
  • Start swimming on my own again. I used to go in the evening to the ladies only nights but I only go with Lucas now and don’t actually do much swimming myself
  • Explore our local area more, using my list of free places to visit in Lancashire as guidance

  1. I went on a safari in South Africa for my 30th and loved it 🙂 Now I’m getting older my goals have changed a bit too (I’m nearly at 40!), I used to want to go to New York too but now I just want to do a bit more camping and explore more where we live. (Would happily take the kids on a safari though!)
