40 Things To Do Before I'm 40 - List

It's taken me a little while to get this list together, but its here. It was a lot harder to put together than I thought it would be and a little scary to put it out there.  I feel that putting it out there for everyone to see means I will have some how failed if I don't complete it. And I also wish I'd done this list a while ago, maybe even a few years ago. But I will do the best I can, having fun on the way, and if I don't complete something that's OK. I already know that some of these items are going to be extremely hard to complete and at the moment I can't see a way of making them happen. But I wanted to add them anyway, its not a bad thing to have a challenge.

I'd love to complete some of these with friends and family. So if you see anything on this list that you fancy completing with me, lets get planning and making it happen.

I plan to blog or even vlog a lot of these, so keep an eye out for them. If you want to follow along on YouTube, click this link http://YouTube.com/c/homefamilylife and click the subscribe button.
