I have been a very bad blogger the last few months, but I have had very very good reason!
There was a secret mission on my before 30 list. I couldn't put it out in the public because I wanted to retrain to become a teacher! I am now on my way to my new career and it feels great! this was a big huge part of my list and I am so pleased to be making my way towards it!
Apart from the career stuff I have only 3 days left and I need to take a good look at my list and see where I've got done and also the things I didn't even get close to doing!
