50 By 50 Bucket List

50 Goals By Aged 50

With life getting in the way, health, work, moving house etc I never got round to making a 40 by 40 list.  I decided instead to do 40 whilst 40.  Some of the things I wanted to do were quite big and were not going to be done in a year.  There is no point in setting yourself up to fail so I changed tactics.

I’m hoping that I can achieve these goals and will hopefully still be blogging in 9 1/2 years time.  I’ll blog my progress as I go along and with your support and encouragement lets see if I can reach these goals.
I have completed 3 items on my 50 by 50 list (6%)
Here is my 50 by 50 list:

    Love the idea of this -I should do something similar before I run out of years to do 50 by 50 in.

      Found it very difficult picking 50 things to do. You should give it a go

    Just stumbled on this from your My Sunday Photo. What a brilliant list! It’s great that you’ve mixed the big things with the small things. Really hope you manage to achieve them all. I’ve cycled through Amsterdam and eaten a Cornish pasty in Cornwall (OK, it was a veggie one). And you have most definitely been to several blogging conferences, because I’ve seen you there!
