30 before 30 – 6 months to go!

30 before 30

So there is now officially only 6 months until I turn 30 and I still have a lot of tasks left to complete on my 30 before 30 list.  Here is a quick update for you all:

  1. Go geocaching.  Still not done – must plan in for one weekend with my boys!
  2. Go on a camping trip with friends. Who wants to go??!  Maybe I will plan a camping trip for my Lifegroup….
  3. Spend a day at a spa- COMPLETED.  Thanks to both my lovely husband and some lovely friends I have now had the full spa day experience.  I loved being able to switch off from life, and my most favourite part was the salt and oil body scrub I had at the Belfry
  4. Visit 5 new museums – COMPLETED. Loved looking round all the museums in Hull last summer, and hoping to pop back again this year whilst it is the City of Culture (the fish trail was good fun too!)
  5. Knit something
  6. Sponsor a child
  7. Host a scavenger hunt – COMPLETED.  Hope this counts, but I hosted a  Nativity themed scavenger treasure hunt for all the kids on our estate this Christmas.  You can download your own copy here.
  8. Send a care package to someone – COMPLETED. I sent a care package last year to a uni student from our church.  Was a great feeling to bless someone away from home.
  9. Learn to juggle
  10. Start a collection – COMPLETED – I absolutely LOVE collecting mugs!  This has seriously made my life better, as everytime I have a cuppa I think back to the time when I got the mug.  Each one has a memory and a story (so much so that I cried when one broke, and Rob went and bought me a replacement from the gift shop!)
  11. Learn yoga – COMPLETED 
  12. Take on a 30 day photo challenge – COMPLETED. Did my 30 days of REAL family life photo challenge last year, and loved it so much that I might have to do it again – maybe in April if anyone is up for it?
  13. Visit another country that speaks a different language – hoping to go to Rome this year as part of my 2017 plans so hopefully that will tick this off.
  14. Have a proper exercise routine! Exercise bike is in place in our bedroom and I have been doing some time on it, but this year I am going to set myself a challenge to properly tick this off.
  15. Write an ebook
  16. Feed 500 people in my home – As this currently only stands at 230 I think it unlikely that I will reach this goal, but who knows!  If anyone wants to come round for dinner just let me know.
  17. Memorise my favourite passage from the bible – COMPLETED Doing Mummy meditations mean that I have memorised loads of passages from the bible, and my favourite one changes all the time.
  18. Sleep under the stars
  19. Learn a new craft/creative skill – COMPLETED Loving exploring bible journaling and expressing my faith in this new creative way.
  20. Make a time capsule to bury in our garden
  21. See the Lion King musical on west end
  22. Grow my own vegetables – COMPLETED. I’m counting raspberries as a vegetable here.  With potential house move on the cards I probably wont be planting a veggie patch here, but will continue with my wild raspberries!
  23. Take my blog self hosted – COMPLETED. You are now looking at my new self-hosted website, and I think I just about know what that means!  Hopefully it means a bit more flexibility and customizable to what both I and you want.
  24. Reorganize my recipe box and books
  25. Write my will – COMPLETED.
  26. Learn how to give proper massages.
  27. Take Sam to an ice cream parlour
  28. Have a steak at a proper steakhouse
Total completed:

So I stand at 12/30 tasks completed with only 6 months to go – think I need some help!! Or maybe just a night watching youtube videos.  Any suggestions?!
