30 Things in my 30’s

30 Things in my 30's | The Open Home

Last week I turned the big 3-0 and toΒ embrace this next decade I decided to make a list of 30 things I would like to do in my 30’s. Some are big life goals, the things I dream about and others are simply fun or grown up things I’ve been meaning to get round to. In no particular order…

  1. Get a good camera and learn how to use it!
  2. Go on a flower arranging course
  3. Learn to embroider
  4. Learn to play the ukulele with my girls
  5. Learn to speakΒ another language (probably German, Latvian or BSL)
  6. Make a patchwork quilt for each of my girls
  7. Get a pet (maybe a rabbit?)
  8. Try kayaking
  9. Start a veggie patch
  10. Shear a sheep
  11. Climb a mountain
  12. Make a Will
  13. Become a blood donor
  14. Sign up to be an organ donor
  15. Get fit! (aka. get back to pre-pregnancy weight)
  16. Donate my wedding dress to charity
  17. Walk the entire cliffs of Guernsey (in stages)
  18. Read all of Agatha Christie’s Poirot
  19. Read the Anne of Green Gables series
  20. Read the Little House on the Prairie series
  21. Go to 10 new (to me) restaurants on the island
  22. Go to a West End Show in London
  23. Go on a weekend away with some gal pals
  24. Take my girls to theΒ Lake District
  25. Visit Keighley in Yorkshire (where my Gran was evacuated to during WW2)
  26. Visit friends in Australia & New Zealand
  27. Visit an Asian country
  28. Visit 5 new to me countries
  29. Grow our family through adoption
  30. Celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary in style!

What goals do you have on your list?

      Thought you would, Cherie! Maybe I can shear a Kiwi sheep whilst we’re there and knock number 13 off my list too! πŸ˜‰

      Me too! My top ones are definitely number 26 and 29. If I get just those two ticked off I’ll be a very happy lady. πŸ™‚
