This is the page where I’m going to list all the new things I’ve tried as part of my 35:35 Challenge – 35 new things in my 35th year…. This challenge has now finished – although I didn’t get to 35 things, I still consider this challenge to be a great success. It has changed the way I spend my time, made me say ‘yes’ to lots of new experiences and give me lots of new friends. I recommend you try something similar!
