50 Things Before 50, A Bucket List.

I am approaching one of THOSE milestone birthdays. The ones you can seem looming ahead for five years, pointing and laughing as you edge ever nearer. I am, I'm sad* to say, teetering on the very precipice of fifty with just six months lying between me and tumbling into the abyss.

Not that I feel 50 on the inside. On the outside? Well, that's an entire other blog post ....

But I have, because I can, put together a bucket list of things I would like to do before I reach the dizzying heights of the Big Five Oh

I thought, obviously, as I've only got until November, a limited budget and the rest of the family's, frankly quite selfish, needs to get on with their own lives, my bucket list should be realistically scaled.

And then I thought: Bugger that...
