30 before 30




hello 29.
nice to meet you.
before i meet the next decade in 366 days (thank you leap year for granting me an extra days grace) i've decided to make a most-possibly-impossible-to-complete but inspiring list of things to achieve in the coming year.
documenting it means i just have to try harder.
so welcome along.
in no particular order:

1. holiday in europe [done]
2. skydive (eeeeeeekk!) [doing! a birthday gift from friends]
3. create a children's book [started]
4. grow herbs [done]
5. run 10km [done]

Maybe make it 30 within the next thirty. That way you have until you are sixty.

Ohhh! I'm glad you found my blog cause now I've found yours :) How do you find so many cool things! I may have to up my internet browsing to keep up.

For your 30 before 30 list, a neighbor has a bike out for verge collection down the road from our house. Its how I got my bike when I moved her (and how we've pretty much furnished our house - thank you peppermint grove)

Hi Mandy

I am more than happy to help you accomplish number 10 especially since it something I have wanted to myself for a while. Now I just need to find my racket (or maybe I will just get a new one)

We should be friends! lol. After reading your list, I laughed because so many items were exactly what I had in mind (except sky diving...hehe).
