Tuesday Ten

Over at Artsyville it's all about ticking the boxes today, so here are...

Ten Things I Have Done

1. Visited five continents. Only South America and Antarctica left, and I don't know if I count Antarctica.
2. Seen the Northern Lights - bizarrely, from a field in Wisconsin in July, and not in Iceland, which is where you'd expect to see them.
3. Been to Mardi Gras in New Orleans - twice. Rio next.
4. Written a book, shortly to be published. It's not a very exciting book, but it's a start.
5. Seen the sun set, and rise, at Uluru.
6. Skied the Hahnenkamm....and the Olympic halfpipe and women's downhill in Italy.
7. Cooked food for Tom Cruise.
8. Been selected for, and attended, Google Teacher Academy - the first one in this country. I still feel pretty proud of that.
9. Kept a blog for 13 years (happy birthday blog for last month, missed that again). I don't think there are many people who are at 13 years at the moment.
10. Completed a mud run. Still feeling quite proud of that as the muddy trainers are still sitting next to my back door!

I'm sitting here gazing into space, certain there are other things I could write but desperately short on time and with work still to be completed before bed. Everything I can think of is to do with travel! Really fun thing to list this week, thanks for the inspiration!

Thanks everyone for your interest! I am trying to blog every day in November so I made today's post the story of the Tom Cruise dinner and the book.

Looking forward to reading all your lists, too.

13 years blogging is a huge accomplishment. Wow. (I think I'm at 2 and a half at the moment.)

Congratulations on the book and the Google Teacher Academy. What wonderful things to have done.

Tell us more about your about-to-be-published book. Don't make us pull it out of you! Is it art related?
