Day 90: 24 Before I’m 25 – Final Update

To do

Watch a Ballet or Opera.
Look! I’ve got one goal left to complete – and although there probably is time to do it – my birthday is getting closer and I don’t think it’s going to happen – If I were to adapt it so it was “Watch a Ballet, Musical or Opera” then I could tick this off my list but it kinda defeats the point because musicals are my favourites and so tend to be more accessible or higher up the list of things to go and see.

The other goals that I’ve completed recently are:

Read Angelology by Danielle Trussoni.
I finished this the other night, it then turned out that Becca was also reading it. I tweeted about finishing the book and Becca replied – the following day we got a reply from Danielle – how crazy is that! I did really like the book but the end was a little anticlimatic – it kinda built up to a point but then took a twist – maybe it was because I wanted a happy ending and it kinda wasn’t there but then again maybe that’s just my opinion. Danielle is very descriptive in her writing – and often I needed a dictionary in the other hand to keep up with what was going on.

Complete 30 Days of Lists
This finished yesterday – there are a whole heap of posts. If you click here it will filter the categories and you can find the posts there or if you go here to my Flickr Photostream there are lots of pictures there of my lists. I started in my Moleksine notebook but in the end moved to the notes section in my filofax.

Buy/Borrow and watch Gone with the Wind.
Originally I was going to buy a copy of Gone with The Wind to watch it – in the end my Aunt had a copy that I could borrow which was really cool. I did like the story line but really wanted to give Scarlett O’Hara a “Gibbs-Slap” (Do you watch NCIS?) she’s really spoiled and kinda irritating. She gets a sort of reality check when she losses everything but at the same time it just makes her more defiant to succeed. As much as Rhett is a bit of a scoundrel – Scarlett gives as well as she got so actually I find it hard to feel sorry for her. I’ve seen the iconic scene at the end but I didn’t realise how much happens in the middle to get them to that point. I didn’t realise that they have a daughter and that she dies in an accident.

      Hello 🙂

      I have a dilemma
      If I include Musicals then I have already completed that last target.
      If I don’t, then I can either ignore it or spend the £30 on a ticket for Die Fleudermaus at MK Theatre (my local that does big productions) but that comes down to whether I can afford it or not lol

      Working on “25 before 26” now

    Thanks for stopping by my blog! Feel free to anytime. I wish more mom’s (of adult children) would blog. It can be time consuming so I do it when I’m watching tv. (Which means I sometimes miss what’s going on on the television, LOL). But I love to blog and I love to read others blogs. It makes the world seem somehow less threatening. Feel free to follow if you’d like.

      You’re very welcome 🙂 (I subscribed over the weekend) I agree – I tried to explain blogging and social networking to one of the girls at work and she was more confused than when I started – she couldn’t see the point of people be interested in what she had to say and things like that.

    • Lillian says:

      OH YAY!! I just looked and you aren’t showing up on my followers list = which means I’m pretty careful what I put out there. I want to be honest but I don’t necessarily want the world to know everything. hahahaha.

      Thanks for subscribing. As soon as I figure it out I will be subscribed to you too!! =>

    • Hannie says:

      I think I subscribed by RSS feed rather than Followers. Mine has an RSS feed button at the top – not sure how to get a followers thing on WordPress like you have on Blogger (will have to puzzle over that later lol)

    Wow, this is fantastic, a great achievement.
    If you really want to go for the last one, is there anything on at Northampton or MK that you can get cheapie last minute obscured view tickets for?

    • Hannie says:

      I keep having a look but the only ones I can find is WNO at MK – It’s okay not to complete right? lol. Working on the new list now.
