Midlife crisis?

OK more important things first. I'm sitting in the waiting room of Lewisham Hospital once again, this time mum is having endoscopy. Colonoscopy to be more precise. Been a long time in the waiting for this appointment but glad its finally here.
Not sure how long it takes, but I have time.
I'm sure all will go well, I just hope they find some indication as to where the recent big bleed came from.

So, my midlife crisis. Recently I asked Facebook what I should do while in Florida this summer, and a friend, who is a keen skydiver suggested freefall. So I started looking into it, maybe a tandem jump I thought.
Well one thing has led to another and now I am in the process of thinking that maybe I should do a full AFF licence and get qualified for solo freefall. Not necessarily something I will do regularly, bit definatly something to chalk up on my wall of conquered.

I think I will do a tandem minimum, and see if my finances stretch to the $1200 for the AFF. Not sure I can justify the $2300 for AFF+A

So the end result is.... I now have massive motivation to lose more weight and to get fitter for the occasion. I am within limits, but would rather be healthy for it all.

In other news, I have 3 hours booked up in the tattoo chair again to get some more colour on my thigh piece. So loads to look forwards to now. Florida, skydiving, tattoo... Its all go!
