40 things before I’m 40

Last month I turned 38.


It seemed to just whizz by with the blink of an eye. I’m well and truly the wrong side of my 30’s.  In two years time I’m going to be 40.

How did that even happen? Just yesterday I’m sure I was in my 20s.

I have achieved loads in my run up to now. Including getting married to my childhood crush. 4 children from two pregnancies,  meeting my idol Kirstie Allsop, running a business, working on the entertainment crew at a theme park, working with several stars as a backstage crew at the local theatre, and loads more!

Now there are loads more I would like to achieve especially before I reach 40.

Here is my list.
