My Bucketlist

My Bucketlist

This bucketlist was written by myself in 2010 – a list of all the things I want to say I have achieved before I die. As I achieve them I will make them red, and posts that are blue have a link to a specific post to share my story. I have some updating to do at the time of publishing (January 2017) so a lot of links will be updated over coming months! Now I have two kids, achieving this list will be somewhat more challenging but hey, I have always liked a challenge! 🙂 What’s on your bucket list?
