Things to do before i'm 30!

I'm having a mid life crisis, or maybe a mini life crisis as in less than two months I will be turning 30! Thirty, the big three zero. It doesn't matter how I say it, it doesn't sound any less daunting that I'm soon to be over the hill. I've always been the younger one in my group of friends and the youngest colleague in my career but that is all changing.

I'm freaking out, there's so much i've yet to achieve in life, I don't feel like I have amounted to anything of interest in the thirty years of being on the planet. I'm not married, I don't have children, I'm certainly not a millionaire. I'm not poor but I run out of money well before pay day each month. I love dressing up in my panda onesie and adore disney movies and still feel very much like a child and not sure that i'm ready to be a thirty something!

In my panic of turning thirty i've decided that I need to achieve a few things that I keep meaning to get around to one day and have still yet to do.

SO... I want to enlist some of my lovely friends to achieve a few things on my 'Before i'm thirty bucket list' (p.s I'm not dying at thirty and I hope not to kick the bucket, but here's my list) So who is free over the next few weeks to tick these off the list?

1. Go roller skating.

2. Hire a rowing or pedalow boat at Trenance boating lake.

3. Sign up to a long distance race.... (OK so the furthest I've run is 6 miles and I've only been running a few months and i'm currently injured but I want to sign up to a half marathon!!! I'm only putting 'sign up' as I won't be nearly fit enough in less than two months to physically run a long race but I will at least fill in the forms and pay my money and train before my birthday.)

4. Try paddle boarding

5. Have a sophisticated dinner party! well it probably won't be that sophisticated and will more likely be a scenario of take out food and getting drunk with friends, but with my new found love of baking I can at least make a dessert for the occasion! Or maybe I should make flan...... Old people eat flan, right?
