I'm not doing too badly am I?! 
Some notes on the items not started yet...
  • I need to find some time to sit down and right my birth story - it's finding the right head space rather than anything else that's stopping me from doing this. I'm not sure how detailed it will end up being as we are now nearly a year after it happened!
  • I have heaps of frames and photos all over the place for the photo wall - just need some organisation to get it all together. This went on hold when we might have been moving but as we are staying put for a while I will try and do this.
  • As far as losing 5kg goes - I reckon this is still achieveable if I start now! I need to weigh myself and come up with an exercise and eating plan to get this ticked off. 5kg isn't much but it might be just the start I need. I quite fancy trying Aqua Aerobics again - tried it years ago - just need to find a buddy to laugh with when I get it all wrong and nearly drown!
So there you go - at this stage there isn't anything I definitely won't do...just need to keep the momentum going to get it all done!

And as far as what I'm going to do for my 30th - there are a few ideas whizzing around in my head...I've found lists of random acts of kindness (one for each year you've been on earth) which sounds awesome. I'm also thinking about a Book of Me scrapbook or something similar.
