Winter Bucket List – The First Update

One week into December and its time to update the bucket list – checking back through the list I can see some of the stuff we had already started to do towards the end of November (yes I was drinking hot chocolate and eating mince pies in the last week of November, what of it?)

  1. See Father Christmas – 01.12.13 (Father Christmas at Tatton Park)
  2. Write letters to Father Christmas
  3. Go sledging – clearly weather dependant!
  4. Make snow angels
  5. Eat lots of pate – I’m working hard on this one and enjoying pate at least once a week ;o) 
  6. Make handmade Christmas cards – I’ve got lots of ideas on my Christmas pinterest board
  7. General Christmas craft – again plenty of ideas on pinterest ready and waiting for me to get started!
  8. Decorate the tree(s) together! – I’m looking forward to having the big tree out again this year as Chloe is older
  9. Eat mince pies – especially ones from Thomas the Baker in York – YUM! We’ve discovered Ben doesn’t like mince pies – all the more for Mummy!
  10. Visit Housing Units Christmas department.
  11. Enjoy lots of hot chocolate – 04.12.13 I had my first Costa Black Forest hot chocolate of the season this week (not that I wasn’t drinking hot chocolate most days anyway – Ben has got quite a taste for it too. 
  12. Choose new baubles to add to the collection
  13. Draw in the frost
  14. Watch Christmas films
  15. Visit the Manchester Christmas Markets to see the lights – 06.12.13 We actually went to the Christmas Markets in November and I’m not sure we’ll manage to go again with me still not driving however we did watch the lights being turned on locally which was lovely.
  16. Watch Chloe and Ben’s Christmas performances at Nursery and school.
Not bad going for just a week into the season!  Lots of Christmas based activity to come over the next couple of weeks!

    This is a really lovely idea, I'm happy to say we've done a lot of them too. Must eat more pate.
