The List

So, I turn 30 in two months.
I don't know how I feel about it. I'm not dreading it or anything, it's just a bit like 'Ooh, OK.'
My beautiful best friend Leah turned 30 yesterday. It's ace, she gets to hit the big ages first, I laugh at her, then I prepare to hit them myself!

So, I guess when you're hitting a milestone age - you can't help but reflect. What haven't I achieved yet? Where did I hope to be when I was 30? Blah, blah, blah.

I did always imagine by the time I was 30 I'd have a mortgage and be married with babies - but me and Mr S are starting to think about stuff like that, so it's not a big deal that I won't actually have any of these things by the time I hit the big three-oh.

Everyone keeps asking what I'm going to be doing for my 30th. Err, I have no idea. I'm busy producing a play and that's all I can think about at the minute. I've never been one for huge parties. I'd much prefer a quiet meal with family and friends, we'll see.

Anyway, on reflection of what I've always wanted to do but haven't. I made a little list.
And I'm going to start it asap.

Two things on the list are:
Learn the piano
Take singing lessons.

Watch this space. I'm going to be doing both soon.
I'm going to teach myself the piano (what?) I've seen a book called 'Dummies guide to learning the piano', and with the help of interactive vids on Youtube, I should be banging out Lloyd Webber tunes in no time!

**Please see my post re:exhaustion. I have no idea when I'll find time to fit these in, but I'm going to do it! **

OMG - that's what I could do for my 30th birthday. A piano recital for my nearest and dearest. All the stuff I'll have learnt by then. 'Twinkle Twinkle Little Star and Away in a Manger!'
Oh yeah, I sure know how to party.

The List TBC...
