  1. 2nd time lucky! My internet died as I clicked ‘Post Comment’ the first time. Happy Birthday for tomorrow. I love this idea. I turned 40 in March and, in hindsight, this is something that I should have done. Not saying I would achieve all 40 goals, but it’s nice to aim high. I would definitely be including something on mine about debt payments. I’ve had some kind of loan and credit card (or both) since I was 22 so this is the year I’m determined to tackle that issue. 100% in 12 months might be too optimistic, but 75% could be achievable with a little bit of knuckling down. I’ve come across a great website that offers useful hints, tips and encouragement from others who are in the same boat called Money Saving Expert. Most of the stuff is just common sense when you think of it, but it takes someone pointing it out to make you realise how simple the idea is. Best of luck with your goals, especially the education and divorce elements (sorry it didn’t work out, but good news for Ste, I guess – every cloud). It’s important to make time for family and loved ones, so I’m glad to see that these are on your goals. Life just gets so busy sometimes; it’s important to realise it’s not all work, work, work. If you make it to Cadbury World, I’d love to see the photos. Only found out it existed yesterday through an advert on Facebook. I will definitely be adding it to my own bucket list – not in the next 12 months, but certainly one day. I’m such a big kid for that kind of thing 🙂

    Good luck with each and every single one of your goals. I look forward to seeing your progress as the year progresses. And be sure to have a ball tomorrow. You deserve it!
