This is my list (in no particular order) of 30 ambitions I’d like to fulfil before I reach my 30th birthday (Feb 2016).

I will place a strike through each one I have completed and then you will be able to click on it to link to the accompanying blog post & photos.

    Ooh, I’ve got a 30 by 30 to!! No where near as exciting as yours but it’s personal to me like yours is to you 🙂
    I too am desperate to start my own business and/or get a book published. I’ve been paintballing, not to put you off but I fainted and I’m not really a wuss 🙂
    Good luck with your challenges, enjoy xxx

    I have just over 11 months before I reach 30 (eek) so if you need a buddy for any of these… I’m raring to go! Except for the credit rating thing.. I’m broke 😉

  3. Amelia's Mum says:

    Love this! I will have to do my 40 before 40, although I already have a bucket list. Gives me 9 years to do it all so more pressure! 🙂 the clearing debt one is definitely one for me too! X

  4. Kenny Stone says:

    #30- I’d love to help you out if you come to California. I work for the National Park Service out at Alcatraz, and if you ever make it to the San Francisco Bay Area, I’d LOVE to give all 5 of you a personal tour of The Rock.

  5. Mummy VS Daddy says:

    I’m pretty sure number 16 can be crossed off, right? 🙂 You were a BritMums BiBs finalist last year were you not? I’m sure you were, we remember voting for you!
