There will be more but I have spent enough time in front of the computer today. This is harder than I thought it would be but I can see the benefits of doing this. If you havent already made a list, start today.


  1. OMG - am I the Anne you have on your list!

    Great idea - I attempted this a year or so ago. Maybe I will think on doing it again but less ambitious than my first list. Good be good for here as we both have little unfinished projects. I like how your list includes treats such as the pedicures and massage.

  2. I love your list. There are a few on there I could use to sart my list. :) My #1 would have to be.....make list LOL
    If you get to NZ maybe we'll meet ... sounds good to me :)

  3. Thrilled to be on your list - maybe another option would be for you, me and the other Anne to meet in Melbourne or Sydney or somewhere for a girls weekend!! You could cross off two at once then!!
    Re the template change - it's a bit tricky depending on what style of template you change to and if you have any widgets in your sidebars - a bit of a drama getting them to transfer. But can be done - but I don't think I could write you instructions - it's very much a suck it and see kind of an operation - you might have to think about trusting me with your blogger password and telling me what template you want and I'll endeavour to transfer it all across - but don't yell at me if I lose anything!!! See what you think Z xx

  4. Happy new year Julie! Not sure if you will be up and about enough by then, but it looks likely that I will be in Canberra in on 19 Feb to go to the D'Orsay exhibition. As far as they go, this is going to be huge!

  5. ooooh; I would like to join you on many of these, no 63 starting right now!!!
