Old enough to know better – young enough to still do it!

As the saying goes “Growing old is mandatory but growing up is optional” and in my case that is so very true.

I’ll be 50 in just a few weeks

I can hardly believe it’s been a year since I started this blog and set my self the task of completing 50 challenges by the time I’m 50.  And while I’ve still got to update a few of these challenges I can tell you now that I haven’t managed to complete them all

I should hang my head in shame.  No – not me.  I’m never one to give up.

Because while I’m a year older but I’m not any no wiser

I’m going to keep going.  Keep going until I complete them all.  And top of the list is still to raise £5,ooo for charity.

So instead of burying my head in the sand and pretending it’s not happening I’m going to embrace turning 50 by celebrating my birthday with a combined birthday party and charity fundraiser in support of the Charlie Cookson Foundation.

Everyone is invited – family, friends, neighbours, Charlie Cookson supporters.

Help me celebrate getting older

As well as the usual party essentials like food, drink and entertainment there’ll also be raffles, tombola’s and a charity auction.

So come along and join in the fun because as Pablo Picasso once said

It takes a long time to become young

or in other words

Smile while you still have your own teeth

You can find out more or let me know you’re coming here

If you can’t attend but want to donate you can either go to www.justgiving.com/5iftyby5ifty or text FIFB50 followed by the amount you want to donate to 70070

Love, Laugh and Live Life

Today’s the day!  It’s time to stop making plans and start living life.  I’ve chosen my 5iftyby5ifty and by the end of today I will have completed not 1, not 2 but at least 3 things on the list. So check out the full list here and see if you can guess what I’ve got planned for today.

£5,000 up for grabs!! Not all today but I still need a charity to raise money for over the next year.  I need ideas for something local, something that will really make a difference or something that struggles for support.  So please let me have your thoughts.

Motto for the day: Love who you’re with (friends, family, work colleagues, anyone really), Laugh at least 8 times today (go on you know you want to) and Live Life to the full
