You'll maybe have noticed. I have. I want to say things but I'm not sure it's what people want to read. It's my blog, I should post what I want, shouldn't I?
One thing I decided was this. I'll not be doing a post whereby I recap the year gone and set lists for the year to come. I say this now, wait for a few weeks and a list will likely appear. The last list I wrote was my 35 things in my 35th year. That was back in March. we're still in my 35th year though but the list has long been forgotten. Maybe i set my list items to high. Am I aiming too high? Am I not aiming high enough? All I know is that most things on that list haven't yet been achieved. And that's not something you want hanging over you is it. See, aiming too high?
Saying that, there are still 3 months left of my 35th year and i'm sure if i really put my mind to it I could start crossing off some things on that list. Couldn't I? Let's see shall we...
- a road trip north, south, east and west
wear pink lips- done! light pink MAC Angel and Dior Lucky!
- a sunshine holiday
show off my iPhonography - it's pretty cool- done. Instagram. that works for me. go out dancing, in heels!- YES, the Christmas night out at work. Once in a year. Lame ;)

- step outside my comfort zone at least once a fortnight (I know, it's me we're talking about though!)
- stop buying stuff and things. Stuff does not define me. - oh dear! Must try harder...

Oh and just as i said i wouldn't be doing lists again, look at one of my fab Christmas presents. My Listography book. It's brilliant. Thanks Ms Nicola!!
