40 by 40 list……
As a challenge to myself and to give me some ideas of things to do in the future, I have decided to challenge myself to do 40 things BEFORE my 40th birthday.
They may not be life changing or in fact really “out there” but I’d like to think there’s things to keep me occupied and active for a while.

++++edit 08012018 – so far I have done a couple of these – dancing in the rain, zip lining and adopting an orangutan. I have also seen the fireworks at Poole Quay and got more into both blogging and running. I am learning to drive (slowly) and feel like that’s something to get Done this year (i’m hoping anyway)
++++edit18122018 – ok so the year has gone well so far, I’ve gone to a couple of conventions now, spent the year sending out Pratchett books as part of #PratchettPostal – 110 at last count which is simply stunning, i’ve sort of started to prepare myself for next years challenges and am accruing more people into my penpal group. So far, so good!
Lots to do and look forward to 🙂
