  • My Ultimate Bucket List

    My good friend Amy Treasure recently compiled her ULTIMATE bucket list.  She challenged me to do the same.  I love a good daydream so this was right up my street.

    1. Change my surname to match that of the twins
    2. Get back into sculpting and make every last door knob in this house
    3. Have another baby.
    4. Become a grandma
    5. Be a gestational surrogate for another family
    6. Get married!  Can you believe that we just haven’t got round to this yet?!
    7. Publish a novel…
    8. … and a photobook
    9. Be a mum to a daughter
    10. Train a service dog
    11. Move to ‘my’ Greek island and finish raising our children there, in a little house by the sea
    12. Go to medical school and become an obstetrician
    13. Constantly improve my photography
    14. Have a home birth
    15. Own another horse (chestnut arab, please) and ride daily
    16. Master the sewing machine and make my own clothes
    17. Buy a house.  Not even necessarily in London.
    18. Breastfeed a child at least to a year
    19. Have savings, actual savings, that don’t get splurged on IVF
    20. Photograph a birth
    21. Run a 10k
    22. Wear a dress every day for a year.  Just because.
    23. Attend a blogging conference
    24. Take the children to Hamley’s in London and let them go wild with my debit card
    25. Attend a brand launch party!
    26. Visit the Scilly Isles
    27. Publish my first article for the Huffington Post
    28. Raise the twins – and any subsequent children – to become good humans
    29. Be the mother-in-law that everybody wants, one day
    30. Convert back to veganism and take the family with me!  (At present, we’re vegetarian.)
    31. Learn to DRIVE. Living in London this hasn’t been necessary but it does make getting OUT of London tricky
    32. Become an apiarist.  That’s a bee-keeper.  Sod my allergy to bee stings… they won’t get me if I’m nice to them, right?!
    34. Have my own olive grove and harvest enough olives for the whole family to enjoy year-round
    35. Launch my own line of children’s clothing
    36. Own and breed seahorses.  Nerd.  But how cool would this be?!
    37. Get my hair to grow to bum-length before it turns completely grey
    38. Learn Latin…
    39. … and Ancient Greek
    40. Throw a Pinterest-worthy first birthday party for the twins
    41. Carve and paint my own rocking horse
    42. Swim beneath a waterfall
    43. Explore Iceland.  The country, not the shop.
    44. See my beautiful Josephine-dog peacefully to the end of her life, when the time comes
    45. Own a different pair of glasses for every outfit
    46. Watch the twins compete in the Shetland Grand National at Olympia…
    47. … and win, obviously
    48. Win a blogging award!
    49. Once I have an actual, owned home, dedicate a whole spare room to being our family library
    50. Be happy.  If not every day, then most days.

      I love this bucket list and I think quite a large chunk is achievable too – I look forward to seeing you tick things off x

      oh I love your list and I have no doubt that you’ll achieve huge chunks of it – and I’m totally with you on wanting to have enough house to have a dedicated library, wouldn’t it be amazing!

      Do you know what these are all completely doable and I have no doubt you will achieve them all! Lovely list.

      See you at the Shetland grand national 😉
