29 @ 29

Since I've been 27 I've written a list of things to do each year from 1 birthday to the next. 
I had 27 things to do aged 27, 28 to do aged 28 and this year I have 29 things to do.
You can see previous lists here and here (on my other blog).

It's a fun project. I made my 28 list a bit too complicated and didn't get much done so this time I'm trying to keep it quite simple. I've made a little mini book to record my progress and printed my list off to stick up on the wall to remind me to do it. 

Already ticked one thing off (Number 4!) and made some progress on a couple of others. 
If I think of it, I'll do progress reports throughout the year or at least a review post at the end of it all. Thinking about it I should have made one of the items on this list write my 30 things aged 30 list - I think that should be quite a special one! I'll make that a bonus item :-)

  1. what a great idea! I am a great believer that we should set ourselves targets as it is so rewarding when we reach them. Good luck and I hope the tiramisu was yum!
