    love&light ☯

  6. I celebrated my 40th birthday by doing number37!
    You're going to have a great year.

  7. Well you snuck the most important point in at the end! Yay a baby. Oh joyful and happy. Such a gorgeous list too... lou xx

  8. A very intriguing list Emma - especially the last item!!! You have inspired me to go and do a list of my own as my birthday is a couple of weeks away. The Beach Hut looks like heaven on earth - one day.....

    Have a very happy birthday!

  9. Inspired by your list last year, I wrote a list of 40 things I wanted to do when I was 40, no. 1 of which was have a baby... and Alice was born in July! So I am a big fan of your list idea! The only thing was that her arrival meant that a lot of the other things on the list will just have to be done when I am 41...(including write a blog!) Have a very happy Birthday and what a truly fabulous list! Enjoy it!

  10. Great list emma, thanks for posting our Morris Minor link. We'll do you a special deal when you're ready to hire it.

  11. Thanks for sharing your list, number 37 is especially exciting!

    I'm the same as you, I LOVE writing lists :)

  12. Woohoo! Congratulations! Hope the sicky stuff goes soon, that sucks!
