Before I’m 33…

So I added some new *wishes* to my Before I’m 33 Wishlist… Rereading my favourite childhood book(s) should be fun. I remember quite vividly from when I was quite small Phoebe & The Hot Water Bottles & The Wishing Chair by Enid Blyton. Two favourite series were The Chronicles of Narnia (which I have since reread) & Anne of Green Gables. It’ll be nice to revisit my childhood this way. So I adapted this & the next one from there are 70 very random things on there you should check it out! No.27 on that list is to take a photo of the sun. So I’ve added it to my list as I think it’ll be intriguing.           

Wearing an entirely red outfit for the day I think will be an experience! I don’t wear red. I’ve had red hair on many occasions & I do own a pair of red high-heeled shoes that I can’t walk in at all! So I’ll be keeping my eye out for either red skinny jeans or a lovely red dress with red tights. I used to own a red coat but not anymore… & I may even venture as far as red lipstick!                                                                                                  Donating blood is quite a biggie for me.. to be honest it scares me! Aaaaagggghhhhhh! I hate needles & am a baby about having my blood drawn for a test. Which is why I’ve put it on my list. I’ve got to do at least one thing that scares me!                                                                                                                                  Going to a castle with Mr J. In 2008 we went to Warwick castle & had a lovely day out. Mr J loves castles & we haven’t been to one since! We didn’t do much last summer (the weather was awful & I put in a lot of hours at work) but this year is definitely about making more time for us so to another castle we will go! Another thing we are quite rubbish at is going to the cinema. The last film we saw at the movies was the latest Harry Potter some time last year. This year I’m going 12 times!!!! At least. I’m also going to treat myself to the ballet. I haven’t been for absolutely years but I work next door to a theatre & this year I will be going. My other new addition is to go to Scotland. I’ve never been but Mr J has & so many people tell me it’s beautiful… Fingers crossed 🙂
