50 Things to do before I’m 50.

I hit the big 50 in 11 months and a few days. Time I felt to look at the things I have done, and decide what needs to be achieved before that milestone arrives.I did the usual research – ie I googled other people’s lists and then came up with my own.

Aware that some have fifty things to do in the 12 months before the big day. I already decided – what with my writing and work commitments – that I couldn’t afford to spend every weekend completing the list, I chose from things I have achieved in the last 49 years, and things that I can reasonably expect to achieve in what little time I have left. Anything left over can go towards to 60 things to achieve by 60! I shall of course, keep you updated with my progress…

So here is my list. (If it’s in Upper case it needs doing.)
