Well it’s happened. I have turned 30 today and it wasn’t as scary as I thought it was going to be. I didn’t grey overnight and I still feel pretty much the same as yesterday! Though I do have lots of lovely pressies which I didn’t have yesterday! Happy 30th Birthday to me!

Happy 30th Birthday to me - sharing my thoughts on turning 30 and what I want to do before I turn 40!

I feel like I should be thinking about what I want to do before I am 40 – I want to fit a lot in to this next decade – as I look back at my 20’s and I suddenly feel like I have been so busy. I went to university, graduated, worked, took a chance and moved to Denmark, met my husband, learnt a new language (Danish), got married and had my daughter (and started to learn to drive for the 3rd time!).  And those are just the major events I can think of!

I suppose I don’t need to have my whole list figured out today (maybe learning to take it easy should be on the list of things to do before I am 40).  Also, this list would be vastly different if I was writing it a couple of weeks ago as we have had some life-changing news in the family – which has made me re-evaluate what is important.

So my revised bucket list of things to do before I am 40 is going to start with:
Learn to put things in the Sparkly Rainbow Box of Doom and forget about them
Be Happy
Get fit and healthy
See the northern lights
(and if I still can’t drive by the time I am 40 I am going to be very cross with myself!)

My birthday wish has also changed – the wish I made as a blew out my candles is not my normal wish (I make the same wish each time I blow out my birthday cake candles and I lose an eyelash – and have done for years).  I wished not only with this wish but I wished with all my other birthday wishes – I will let you know if it comes true – you know I can’t tell you before then otherwise it won’t happen!

What things do you have on your bucket list to do before your next milestone birthday?
