So much to do, so little time…

Rutendo, how many years ago did you get married? It was at your wedding, as we were waiting in the church for you to arrive that this list started. Now, Rutendo is one of those annoying people who is never late. EVER. I love her to death, but her precision planning leaves us mere mortals feeling incredibly disorganised. I’ll admit, it is inspiring. But only when one isn’t recovering from her side-eye for either being horribly late, or in my case, always showing up unannounced.

But I digress…

So, more or less 3 years ago, we sat waiting for Rutendo to walk down the aisle (she was only 30 minutes behind schedule, but we recovered time beautifully). Whilst waiting, I chatted to the dear Doc, who mentioned her 30 things by 30 list. Sounded pretty cool, and in true FOMO style, I wanted in. But also, being the overachiever I am, I was not about to list anything ‘unachievable’. I know it sounds counter intuitive, but I know my limitations. There is no frigging way I will parachute or bungee jump. Nope. Never. Finish and klaar! At the time, I didn’t have 30 things (sad, yes, I know). But I really enjoyed experiencing my 26 items that I started adding more. So now it’s more along the lines of 60 things by 60 list, and I’m having the time of my life experiencing life.
