Ninety nine...here we go!

So yesterday I was browsing Amy's blog and I came across
this fun idea that I thought I would do today.
99 things I might or might not have done (yet).
Ready for this
here we go!

                                                                               1. Started your own blog
          Oh yes, you are reading it right now :)

2. Slept under the stars
I went camping in my friends back garden when I was younger,
we slept in a tent....does that count?

3. Played in a band
No, haven't done that...only pretended to when I was little.
 
 
4. Visited Hawaii
How I would love to!! Hopefully one day.

5. Watched a meteor shower
Not sure, don't think I have.
 
 
6. Given more than you could afford to charity
I've given my fair share

7. Been to Disneyland
I've been to Disneyland Paris, such an amazing place!
Would love to visit the ones across the big pond though.

8. Climbed a mountain
We went on holiday to Austria a few years back and climbed
a different one every day

On top of the Dachstein mountain (it was so cold up there)
Another mountain climb in Austria


9. Held a praying mantis
My husband has. We lived in Gibraltar for a while and one day
he had one on his arm and brought it in to show the kids.
10. Sang a solo
I sang a few solo lines..

11. Bungee jumped
Erm NO and I don't think I EVER will.
Scared of heights.


12. Visited Paris
Yes, yes I have, I think I was about 14 or 15.
Even went up in the Eiffel tower :)

13. Watched a lightening storm
Several, the best ones were when we lived in Gibraltar and
when we were on holiday in Austria. To hear the thunder roll off
the mountains and then see giant lightnings is quite spectacular.
Storm in Gibraltar
14. Taught yourself an art from scratch
I learnt how to make birthday cakes like these all by myself
and I also used to make these little creatures out of polymer clay

15. Adopted a child
Have had thoughts about fostering a boy or girl in an
underdeveloped country

16. Had food poisoning
Luckily I haven't had this yet.

17. Walked to the top of the Statue of Liberty
One day.
..
18. Grown your own vegetables
I've grown cress out of and egg head once.
I've also tried to grow parsley and other herbs...not very successful.

19. Seen the Mona Lisa in France
Nope

20. Slept on an overnight train
Yes, went on a holiday to Switzerland when I was 15...on the
overnight train. So much fun and so nice to look out the window when
you wake up and see mountains.

21. Had a pillow fight
Who hasn't!

22. Hitch hiked
Haven't needed to do that yet. Honestly it would scare me, you
never know who you get in the car with.

23. Taken a sick day when you're not ill
Hmm, guilty! One sick day I travelled all the way from Belgium
to England...naughty!


24. Built a snow fort
I've watched my mister and the kiddies build one

25. Held a lamb
Not held one but I bottle fed one, so sweet!

 Ok, so I had to look for this photo and only realised we bottle fed goats and not lambs...my bad!

26. Gone skinny dipping
Hahaha....no

27. Run a marathon
One day I will do this. Have to get in the habit of running again first.
 
 
28. Ridden in a gondola in Venice
I went on a school trip to Venice when I was 18. I loved it and
would love to go again. Didn't go on a gondola back then, maybe next time.

29. Seen a total eclipse
I seem to remember there was an eclipse about 15 years ago,
can't really remember much about it.

30. Watched a sunrise or sunset
Both
Sunset In Gibraltar, view from our balcony

31. Hit a home run
Never played base ball

32. Been on a cruise
Oh I sure would love to do that!
I used to be in the Belgian Navy, did I ever mention that before?
I love being at sea.


33. Seen Niagra Falls in person
No, but I've heard it's beautiful

34. Visited the birthplace of your ancestors
Gosh, my ancestors are from all over the place.
Belgium, France, UK and Germany.
I've visited all.


35. Seen an Amish community
I haven't

36. Taught yourself a new language
Not myself but I do know four languages

37. Had enough money to be truly satisfied
Yes, but then we spend it..on good things that satisfied us.

38. Seen the Leaning Tower of Pisa in person
No


39. Gone rock climbing
No, only indoors and I was aching all over the next day!

40. Seen Michelangelo's David
No

41. Sung karaoke
Ah but yes, I believe I posted a photo earlier :)
Let me remind you again


42. Seen Old Faithful geyser erupt
no
43. Bought a stranger a meal at a restaurant
no


44. Visited Africa
Been to Tunisia and Egypt


45. Walked on a beach by moonlight
While on holiday


46. Been transported in an ambulance
Unfortunately yes...I felt very awkward as well as I hadn't shaved my legs!

47. Had your portrait painted
I even have my own personal artist to do that, my daughter Emily



I just love my long fingers and flat feet! Hahaha.


Unfortunately I'm going to leave it at this for today as this is taking up
quite a bit of time. My kiddies would be disappointed if I'm not there
to pick them up from school.
But this has been fun so far no?
I'll continue this next week.
