My favourite post this week was another book related post

Lucy’s BlogCrush this week is here

My own post this week is about tricky I find shared parenting at Christmas time

Have a brilliant week everyone!!

So all this stuff I’m meant to do before I’m 40….

I’ve perused a number of things to do before you’re 40 lists .

Oh… reason being it’s my birthday this week and I’m about to turn 39 which means at that point I’ll have 52 short weeks to fit it all in.

Thing is , they’re a bit nuts ??

It seems to do all the things I should do before I turn 40 require a lottery win and a personality change .

I found this list courtesy of The Independent so I thought I could talk you through a few of them.

Celebrate New Year’s Eve in a foreign city.

Ok this is a nice idea …however my birthday is only 2 weeks before new year so I really don’t have the planning time for this. Besides I don’t think I’ve ‘celebrated’ New Years Eve since 1998!!

Challenge yourself to complete something that seems impossible. Compete in the Ironman Triathlon, climb Mt. Everest, or finish a 100-mile race.

Woahhhhh there. Complete something impossible to me is like make it through a week without losing your purse , or dont fall over your own feet. These things seem a bit ambitious and attempting them would likely result in me never reaching 40.

Splurge on a meal at The French Laundry in California, or another three-star Michelin restaurant.

Oooo this I could do. Small girl’s life goal is to eat at a Michelin starred restaurant , she’d come ! Except I’m a very picky eater , I bet I’d not like anything. I’m one of those irritating people in restaurants who order “can I have x but without y and z”

Buy a piece of art you’re proud to display

I have 4 children I have no need to buy art! Teen boy the elder spent the entity of being 4 years old drawing me snooker tables and I still have the drawing small girl did for me of her living in a castle with Harry Styles . Those things are priceless!!

Go on a spiritual journey, whether it’s an ashram in India, the Western Wall in Jerusalem, or St. Peter’s in Vatican City.

My spiritual home is Hull though! Am I ok to stroll down Whitefriargate ,pop to the KC ,have Pattie and chips ? That’s got to count!

Learn five good wine and cheese pairings.

A) A glass of red

B) Cheese

Box ticked.

Drastically reinvent your look at least once.

Well I have kept my ‘look’ since the 90’s . My tartan skirt,thick black tights style is classic Rachel Green.

Maybe this is one I can actually pull off?? Except I’m a bit scared of reinvention?

Leave that idea with me , I’ll get back to you.

Take on a leadership position.

Ok , this is unlikely.

My social anxiety and people pleasing nature mean my version of leadership would make Theresa May look strong and stable (topical joke eh??See it’s not all vacuous nonsense!)

Get in the shape of your life.

Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha

Yeah I think I’ll have to write my own list!!!
