My thirty list

So, still in the throes of packing and moving, but I decided to have a crack at making that list of thirty things to do before i'm thirty.

No as easy as I had thought! I had a look at many other lists - there are quite a few - of things to do ... before thirty, forty, dying...

I think my list stretches me, but is not unattainable. i'm going to try some new things along the way, updating the look of the list and giving regular progress updates.

Here it is...

My first post

So, here is my first post.

What's this all about? I'm trying this out, seeing where it goes.

This blog is going to be a little bit about me, a little bit about what's going on in my neighbourhood, some of my thoughts about different things, and maybe a few lists. I love lists!

They really help to me to get it all in order, whatever 'it' is.

That's it for today. I'll be back tomorrow - with some stories about garage sales. Hubby and I are heading out for a couple of hours - I'd love to find a coat rack.

But first a list! Okay ...

Items I want to find at a garage sale
1. Coat or hat rack
2. House and garden magazines
3. Small bookcase
4. Floor or table lamp
5. Exercise equipment
