The List

All the blogging in the world about a bucket list is going to be pretty useless without a list…

How would you know what I had planned, or how much I had already achieved? More importantly – how would I know? I’ve got to keep track of it somewhere!

My life is full… probably too full. As a one-woman whirlwind my life is full of half-completed lists, which I get bored with and are then ‘tidied’ (I’m pretty sure into the bin) by my weary spouse. This one is different, it means a lot to me and I’ve been working on it for a long time. On here I definitely can’t lose it.

Are you ready? It’s a long one, which is open to suggestions – the numbers in brackets are the ones I have done and the corresponding year. In no particular order, before I kick the proverbial, I intend to…
