My Life List

The last couple of years have been life changing for me. I have had the courage to leave a marriage that was no longer working, and I have moved into a wonderful house with my Little Miss. Without the support of friends and family I would still be in that bad place.

This did originally start as a 40 things before I was 40 list. Some I completed in the year before I was 40 some are still on going. That is why this has now become my Life List (Bucket List). Some of these things are very small and trivial. Others are emotional and challenging.
