Recently, this lady posted about 100 things she wants to do with her life, and of course, as these things go, challenged all readers to do the same.
I've been thinking about it ever since, and have finally started my own list. Here's the first 25 things. Some are of course more likely to happen than others, but I've tried to keep them as realistic as I could.
So, go on then, your turn next!
1. Build a kite and fly it with Nils.

3. Learn another language.
4. Teach Nils how to cook.
5. Teach Nils how to sew.
6. Make some skin cream.
7. Make some ice cream.
8. Stay at Bad Blumau in Austria, designed by Friedensreich Hundertwasser.
