Below then are my Bucket List and Done It List. I hope you’ll join me for some tales of adventure along the way, as I move things from one list to the other. But what would fill me with the deepest pleasure is to inspire you to get outside and, perhaps as Paula would say, Live Live To The Full!

A lot of the stuff on my bucket list feels very ‘pie in the sky’ at the moment. And not because I don’t feel fit enough, or because I think I’m too old to fit it all in before I seize up!

But I’m not going to let that stop me getting stuck in.
