30 things I want to do in my 30s

In January I celebrated my 30th birthday (eek!) Since then, I’ve slowly but surely been adding to a list of things I’d like to do or accomplish in my 30s! Now I’ve got to 30 things, it makes sense to get it published. Although, I might make an exception if I suddenly think of something REALLY good. Putting this out into the world makes me more likely to actually stick to doing these things too. I’ll be updating it each time I achieve something!

Things I’ve done (most recent first)

2. Make cheese

Achieved July 2022, Updated 17th November 2022 – My in-laws bought me a cheese making kit for my 30th birthday in January. It took me a few months to find the spare time to use it, but I finally found some time on a hot day in July where I didn’t really want to leave the house. I decided to make mozzarella, which I believe is meant to be one of the quickest and easiest types of cheese to make. The final result wasn’t as smooth as shop bought mozzarella! According to my thermometer, the temperature was perfect. The instructions warned not to let it go any hotter, but I think it could have done with it. However, I still had fun and it was tasty!

1. Go to Download Festival

Achieved in June 2022 , updated July 2022- I went to Download in 2017 and had such an amazing time. I knew that I wanted to go again to celebrate my 30th so my husband booked tickets as my present! I can’t even describe how fantastic it was to be back at Download Festival again. If only I could afford to go every year. Seeing KISS and Iron Maiden were definitely moments I’ll never forget. Especially seeing Reuben rock out to the latter! I was such a proud mum. I could just be myself there and had so much fun soaking up the atmosphere and seeing so many brilliant bands.
