38 things


Regular readers will remember that when I was 38, I had a list of 38 Things To Do.

Last time I posted, shortly before my 39th birthday, these were the things still undone:

2. Become Dr. Ros
7. Learn to weave properly
10. Learn to make fabulous lingerie
15. Visit 38 new places
20. Do The Artist’s Way
21. Make puff pastry from scratch
22. Start saving for the Best Holiday In The World Ever
30. Get a professional manicure
31. Sign up for an OCA module

I am happy to report that I have since done #2, #20, #22 and #30, leaving:

7. Learn to weave properly
10. Learn to make fabulous lingerie
15. Visit 38 new places
21. Make puff pastry from scratch
31. Sign up for an OCA module

#10 and #21 are just waiting for a quiet day or two to happen soon. I am resigned to the fact that #15 may never happen and have stopped counting. I’m still hopeful of #7 and #31 one day, but they are going to have to wait for a while.

It’s been a fun exercise and I’ve enjoyed the excuse it’s given me to do things I otherwise might have put off for ever.
