My first attempt at something like this so it should be an interesting ride.

If you knew that in one year you would die suddenly, would you change anything about the way you are living now? If so, what would you change and why?

My first task would be to apply for as many credit cards as I could. Then I would apply for the largest personal loan possible. Probably a few store cards as well.

Armed with my newfound wealth I would go walkabout.

For the first couple of months I would hike part of the Pacific Crest Trail. There wouldn’t be enough time for me to do the whole thing from Mexico to Canada because I have a couple of other goals to achieve in the year that I have left.

A trip to England during the football season would be an absolute must. Going to see my favourite team, Everton, preferably with my son and grandson. My grandson is four now and hasn’t been to England to see a game yet so to see his face when he first enters the stadium is something that I need to see. The sight of that big expanse of green pitch as you walk to your seat is something that no youngster will ever forget. It makes me emotional just writing about it.

After my visit to England I would go to Western Australia to spend the rest of my days with my son and his family. They have a beach shack which is well away from the outside world. Spending time with them playing on the beach and seeing them happy is all that I would want. With a cold beer in my hand.

And my daughter could use one of my credit cards to fly out to join us!

It doesn’t take much to make me happy.
