Mind you in recent years I've whitewater rafted over the highest commercially run fall in the Southern Hemisphere, hellihiked up a glacier, paraglided off a mountain top (ok it was just a very high hill),
climbed up (and down into the crater of) a volcano (ok it is a dormant one), taken the decision to live my life in two halves on opposite sides of the world, learned to play croquet (and if anyone thinks that's for old softies they are very much mistaken), and entered blogland. Awe come on. surely that beats camping in the garden, starting a secret society, playing a computer game to the end and, wait for it, making a unique milk shake.
Perhaps I'm not quite so old and boring as I thought.
