I am feeling very energised about 2011. If you are a regular reader you will know that it is going to be a busy year with the arrival of our first bundle of joy - Baby B.

The other big celebration (and I say celebration through gritted teeth) is that I will also be turning 30. This is fine, but becoming a mum and turning 30 in the same year has daunted me a little I must be honest.

In an attempt to take my mind off this fact, and as I haven't done any New Year's resolutions for 2011 I have decided to do a 30 before 30 list. I'm hoping this will enable me to focus, just a little bit, on me and make sure that my identity doesn't get lost in the mummy-craziness!

I was hoping to get the list completed to share with you today but that in itself appears to have been too ambitious as I haven't quite been able to come up with 30 things yet. Worringly I also worked out last night, that in fact there are only 26 weeks to complete these 30 things in - and of course that is to include the arrival of Baby B in February/March.

The list will include some of the normal things to achieve before a landmark birthday but others may just be those things that I never quite get around to doing. With the baby being due in the near future there are some clear restrictions. In another life things on the list may have included things like wear hotpants in public, dye my hair pink, or as Mr B suggested learn to surf but I have to be realisitic :)

So, I will share the list with you in the coming days. If you have any recommendations for me then please leave a comment below. I will consider them all (within reason!).

Happy 2011!


  1. Thanks Rachel! I like to have a focus, not sure how I am going to get on though :) Just had a peek at your blog - I am now following it!
