Fifteen in fifty

A bit of a break from JYC and something a bit different!

Towards the end of 2015 I decided that I wanted to really celebrate being 50 in 2016. To that end I made a list of 15 things I want to achieve in 2016 – be they meeting up with friends, going out somewhere, reading, seeing films etc.
This is my list:
1.    Long weekend to Venice - booked
2.    See my first ballet - done
3.    Last night of the proms in Hyde Park
4.    Cinema in the park
5.    Top of the Shard with Hugh, Penny, Ben and Amy
6.    Theatre with Hugh
7.    Theatre with Penny - booked
8.    Holland on Sea and walk to Frinton with Hugh and Penny
9.    Cinema with Wendy at least twice
10.  Colour Run with Penny - booked
11.  Afternoon tea at the Anchor (with Gillian?)
12.  Meet up with my college friends
13.  Read at least one book each month - Jan, Feb, March,
14.  At least one day out with Wendy and Sue
15.  Meet up with my school friends, Jane and Ann - booked
Hopefully I will get to do all 15. If I don’t (because of not being able to get tickets or events not running) then never mind – I should still do quite a few and make some memorable moments.
I intend to create a scrapbook in which I will scrap photos from these events. This will run alongside my chronological scrapbook. So watch out for those pages appearing!
I have been very luck and already can cross number 2 off the list as I went and saw the Nutcracker with Wendy and Sue at the beginning of the month. Well, I suppose I can also cross off number 14 too, but I intend to have days out during the summer with them so will leave that on for the time being!
I will do updates when I manage to book something or actually do one of the things on the list. My actual birthday is June and I have to say that I am really looking forward to it! I know that some people do not look forward to being 50, but I am in such a good place at the moment it really doesn’t bother me. I am fit, I am my ideal weight, I am happy in my job and my family is all happy and healthy. What more could I ask for!

Cheers to you - it looks like a fun list!

Seems like a very doable list to me! 50 was so long ago, I barely remember it, but that birthday didn't bother me at all! Great photo of you!

Sandra said...

As someone who fit 50 a couple of years ago, I can HIGHLY recommend it. I think your list is great and achieveable

You'll be fabulous at fifty! Best of luck with your list

Love your list Becky! I have a similar one but not thought about blogging it - must do that. My 50th is 28th June - what date is yours? Like you I am looking forward to it as I have so much to be grateful for :)

It's definitely going to be a great year to turn 50 in your world! Fantastic list - I'm looking forward to hearing all about these adventures & seeing the pages about them as the year goes along!

Raising a glass right back to you Becky! You look wonderful and have worked hard and taken risks to make the changes which have taken you to where you are now. A scrapbook to celebrate sounds perfect!

Jo said...

That is a great list and I look forward to seeing how you get on, I'm sure you'll cross them all off! Lovely picture of you x

What a great list! Sounds like you will have a wonderful year full of memories. That is such a nice photo of you too :)

I turn 50 next year and shall now muse away at possible things to put on my own list.

It looks like a great list for celebrating your 50th! I see we have the same birthday month - one difference though is I'm 20 years older.
