I've never had an official one (yes I know 37 and no bucket list!) but Hubby and I have been talking, things have been up and down for us and we have had to cancel some things that we'd had planned and we're both feeling quite despondent and fed up. Sadly we haven't been blessed with the fortune of having children but on the brighter side of that we have freedom, freedom to do so much as we aren't tied down or restricted (I don't mean for it to sound like children are a burden). So what do we do with all this freedom? NOTHING!!! We aren't making the most of life, life is weighing us down. We talked about the things we want do, things that we talk about every year but you know life, it can be awkward and busy can't it.
Any hoo, this discussion led to us deciding to get writing our bucket lists, we both have unofficial ones, things we want to do achieve, experience and own (with any luck) but it's now time to make them official. May be there's something in writing it down, a magical process. Once the words are written the dreams will then turn into reality... Or may be it just will get us working harder towards ticking things off the said lists? Ok I'm romanticizing things a little now aren't I? I'm sure there is nothing mystical about writing your bucket list but it's a fun idea though. I've still got the imagination of a child I think.
Now what this meant was I needed a new notebook, Hubby questioned my logic and felt that I must have a suitable one stashed away somewhere... Sadly he was right and I remembered I bought a cute little coral notebook with turquoise ribbon and elastic which would be ideal. It's big enough to write lots of things down in and small enough to slip in your bag for moments of inspiration. Hubby has a gorgeous leather handmade one which I bought him which he is going to use. He hasn't started his yet but he has been telling me lots of ideas already.
The next thing I got thinking was may be my bucket list deserves it's own page on The Tales of Me, so that will be the next thing to do.
So what about you, going back to my starting question, Have any of you got a bucket list or something similar? If so what are some of the things on your lists? Have you got a journal or notebook to write your list down in? I'd love to know, leave me a comment to tell me about yours and may be post an image of yours on Twitter or FB, sharing pretty notebooks is always a good thing!
