5 things to do before I am 40…

I turned 34 last week.  I’m no longer wincing as the years go by, I think I’m happy with who I am.  James keeps telling me I’m too young to have grey hair, but then I tell him he’s too young to be going bald But these milestones make you think about things you want to achieve and so here goes with a little bit of a brainstorm of a few things I’d like to do before I am 40:…
