30 Things

Thank you for answering my cry for help & providing some '30 things' assistance! I can't tell you what a delight it was to receive a response & to have suggestions far better than my own scrappy attempts.

I now have a healthy list that ranges from easily attainable to somewhat optimistic, to absolute pie-in-the-sky. (Literally - see #12, care-of dear Anne-Marie. She would have me falling fast from a plane!)

'30 Things to do before I turn 30':

1. Learn how to make Macaroons
2. Watch the movie Giant staring Elizabeth Taylor & James Dean
3. Start a herb/veggie patch so I can make fresh bruschetta this summer
4. Finish off my pancake blogs with an all-time winner
5. Watch 30 of my all-time favorite movies
6. Hang the wallpaper I bought 4 long months ago (I'm a scardy-cat)
7. Start going to the Yoga classes I keep talking about going to (again, scaredy-cat!)
8. Re-Upholster our bedroom chair
9. Take a Spring bike ride around Radnor Lake
10. Read 'To Kill A Mockingbird'
11. Spring-clean my closet & give the 'dont-need' to Goodwill
12. Sky-dive. Ahem.
13. Find 5 new favorite blogs
14. Watch the sunrise with Nate
15. Learn how to make No-Knead bread
16. Listen to "There's a Hippo in my Bathtub" record, beginning to end.
17. Host afternoon tea for a couple of girlfriends
18. Track down & try Nashville's "Grilled Chesserie" van
19. Discover a new London coffee haunt
20. Have a hit of tennis with Nate
21. Learn how to straighten my hair
22. Sample a sweet thing & a savory thing from the Borough Food Markets
23. Write & send a note to some of the people who have been influential over my 30yrs
24. Take a short but sweet vacation with Nate, sans guitar/merch/van/gig contract. Yee-haw!

As you can see, I'm still 6 short, so if anything springs to mind, I'm all ears!

And please continue to stop-by & check my progress if it takes your fancy. I will endeavor to blog on as many of these as I can.

Did i send you the hippo in the bath tub? If so you definitely should listen to it.... Jonty has become quite attached to Patsy Biscoes nursery rhymes!

An interesting list of to-do, never seen anything similar, take note, maybe the plan will help me to solve the household chores without unnecessary tears. I would add to this list to win the amount for the purchase of a new car, this is a real opportunity for everyone http://sportsbetting-x.com/sports-betting-systems-and-strategies. If you love sports, then this is a good chance for you.
