Spring Bucket List 2014

Wow – it’s already time for a new Bucket List!  I can’t tell you how much it pleases me to be writing a SPRING Bucket List. In your face and jog on Winter with your lack of snow and far too much rain!   When I look back over the Winter Bucket List we didn’t do a bad job – for the most part the bits we were missing out on were weather related and so not really anything we could do – you can’t make snow angels in the rain hey?

So Spring 2014 . . . what are we aiming for? This is our Spring Bucket List: 

  1. Take Ben and Chloe to pop their Roller Derby cherry and watch Aunty Custard play her first bout
  2. Launch my fabulous new blog design – totally excited about this!
  3. Get all my hair cut off (this has been a LONG time coming – 2 year or so in fact!)
  4. Celebrate my birthday (another one? Already?)
  5. Celebrate Dave’s birthday too!
  6. The lovely Lyndsey’s Hen Do!
  7. Finally meet up with a lovely friend of mine in REAL LIFE!
  8. Celebrate our 2nd wedding anniversary – it’s cotton right? Babysitters booked! Whoop
  9. Easter – When you’ve got an Aunty Nic who works in the chocolate business Easter is good!
  10. Mothers’ Day (looks pointedly at Dave)
  11. Make the house A LOT bigger!
  12. Get outside more! This has been a very “inside” Winter!
  13. Wean Amy (Do I really have to do this?)
  14. Get some sort of focus on the whole “Wedding Weight” mission!
  15. Go to a farm and see some baby animals
  16. Attend my first blog conference!
  17. Take a trip to Whitby – time to introduce Daddy to Magpie fish and chips
  18. Make the most of being able to have fresh tulips in the house

So that will do nicely I think – watch out for updates!

    When I woke up this morning there was actually sunshine and walking home from work the sky was not yet dark. I love this time of year when things start to come alive. Your list has inspired me to think of a few for myself – roll on Spring!

    Great idea! I'm going to make one too – I love lists! We also have Whitby plans, can't wait! It's so fun to go to the sea with kids.

      I love Whitby 🙂 It's just a bit far from Manchester so we have to factor it into visits to York instead x

    Love bucket lists. I'm monumentally crap at doing anything and have little motivation. You've inspired me 🙂

    I love the idea of a spring bucket list – I have never considered it before, but there are lots of things that I would like to do in Spring… some of which I have started – so I will get my thinking cap on. Thanks for the inspiration 🙂

    I like the idea of re-writing a bucket list for the different time periods – it's kind of like 'it's now or never' and you're more likely to do it
