I started my 50 Before 50 list on my 48th birthday, you can see the list and read about it in my 50 Before 50 - Part One and 50 Before 50 - Part Two posts. After six months I wrote my 50 Before 50 - Update 1 post and as today is my 49th birthday, it's exactly a year since I started the list so it's time for another update.
I don't take very much exercise, walking is really my limit so I thought it important to add something a little more energetic to the list. Start swimming regularly is number 2 on the list and I made a start back in April, I wrote my Swimming post about it. It all went slightly awry at the end of May and beginning of June when I was ill, I stopped swimming altogether but I'm back to it again now, though not quite as regularly. Still, it's more exercise than I was getting before I started swimming and I'm hoping to get back into a regular habit.
Number 6 on the list is Visit Wales and that's what we did back in March. We only stayed for a couple of nights but we had a fabulous time and it's somewhere I'd definitely like to visit again. You can read all about it in my Weekending In Wales post.
I've been wanting to read Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte for years now and I finally got round to it. You can read what I thought of it, along with a few facts about the book, in my Wuthering Heights post. That's number 9 crossed off the list.
Number 11 on the list is Fly a kite. We had a lot of fun with this one, trying to get it up in the air, which we finally managed. You can read all about it in my Let's Go Fly A Kite post.
Whilst in Wales I was able to cross number 18 off the list, Try a food I've never tried before. The hotel where we stayed provided a lovely full Welsh breakfast each morning and though I asked for mine without the black pudding, it was still on my plate when the waitress brought it out. I decided I'd give it a go and though I managed about half of it, it's not something I'll be in a hurry to eat again.
I also tried scallops for the first time and wrote about that in my These Are Not Just Yellow Stickers post. So that's two things I've never tried before and number 18 is well and truly ticked off.
More recently, I visited the White Horse of Kilburn and though I didn't manage to touch it, I got pretty close so I'm counting that as number 22 done. You can read about that in my Horsing Around post.
Visit a craft show is number 47 on the list. I've visited Yarndale in the past and again just after I started this list but I wanted to try out some other shows too. Spring Into Wool is a new show which has popped up this year and is held close to home at The Grammar School at Leeds. I visited in April and you can read all about it in my Spring Into Wool 2017 post.
So I'm half way through now, yet I've still got way more than half of the list to complete. Time to get a move on methinks.
