42 before 42... revisited..

So, its a new year, and my birthday is less then a week away. thought I would revisit my "bucket list", and update what may have been done - in the process of doing - or have changed my mind about...

2. sold some of my paintings.

3 get divorced (that process has been started officially today. before I can get divorced I have to have children's orders in place. Today I went and started the mediation process that will get the children's orders completed - which then means I can file for divorce!!)

4 sorted out my health (I had blood tests late last year - and sugars were good, iron levels crap, and cholestrol levels too high - but at least I have something to work with. I have a doctor's appoitnemnet tomorrow to review my medication, and discuss my increased anxiety at the moment)
