I love the idea of a monthly bucket list, and when the lovely Beth at Twinderelmo tweeted me that she was starting a monthly linkie I was really excited to join in.
February is going to be a fairly quiet month for our house so it will be nice to have a few things to focus on to cheer me up in what can be a bit of a dreary month.
1. Book a summer holiday
This is a slight cheat as I’m planning to do this later today. We have our destination picked and already have some money paid towards it as we were planning to go to Egypt in October but are swapping it for a summer break instead.
2. Cook a romantic Valentines Day dinner for hubby
I’ve gotten a little bit out of the habit of cooking recently, apart from sticking chicken nuggets in the oven (and I can’t really call that cooking) so seeing as we don’t have a babysitter for Valentines Day I’m donning my chefs hat!
3. Clean my car
I am a complete car slob! There are wrappers and tissues stuffed everywhere, the boot is a mess and there is an odd assortment of toys here, there and everywhere. I always feel a bit happier when my car is clean and tidy, and half term is coming up so time to get it sorted!
4. Buy a sledge
You never think to buy a sledge until the snow falls and then you can’t get one for love nor money so I’m going to get organised and go and get one for the next time it snows, O would love it! (I can hear hubby moaning already about finding somewhere to store it)
5. Get Out More
When it’s cold the temptation can be to get myself another hot chocolate and stay warm and cosy inside, and then I feel a bit fed up because I haven’t been anywhere! In February I need to make the effort for all of us to get our big coats on and get out and enjoy the rest of winter with a few nice walks and lots of lovely fresh air.
There we have it, my first bucket list and hopefully five things that shouldn’t be too difficult to achieve.
How can it be February tomorrow already??
