In a moment of organisational madness I wrote down how many items I achieved in 2017 and how many items I had left. I managed to tick off 7 items from my bucket list! This is great but then seeing I had 23 left to go I started to panic.
So I have divided up the items into 2018 goals and 2019 goals.
- Ghost hunt
- Snowdon & Visit Wales
- Say Hello in 30 Languages
- 5km Colour Rush
- Yorkshire 3 Peaks
- Machu Picchu
- Give Blood
- Muddy Paws Challenge
- Gain Another Qualification
- Buy a drink for a stranger
- Titanic Museum
- Dog Agility
- Cut my hair for charity
- Sky dive
- Achieve Black Belt in TKD
- Visit the Lake District
- Be Vegetarian for 2 weeks
- Go to a Silence Retreat
- Learn Origami
- Line Dancing
- Disconnect for 1 week
- NYC at Christmas
- Lose Weight
I decided I could achieve more in 2018 as it is the year before wedding madness of 2019 (for my friends) so more money would be around to contribute towards achieving 30 before 30. I’ve technically already started the challenge of losing weight but I will give myself the full year of 2019 to achieve the best result.
I feel much more organised and under control of how I will achieve my bucket list now. Plus I have a lot of posting to catch up on I have 3 drafts waiting to be finished, I need to get on top of it!
Over the past few weeks I have been booking in dates and paying for some of the challenges I am doing next year.
5km Colour Obstacle Rush event has been booked in for Saturday 12th May 2018. Tim and I plus two other friends will be attempting this course. Go Pro footage will be taken.
5km Muddy Dog Challenge has also been booked in for Sunday 30th September 2018. After leaving Albert at home for three weeks whilst we are away in Peru I thought a little day trip for Albert was the best way of saying sorry.
I have changed a few goals ;
#20 Love Actually Wedding is now #20 Yorkshire 3 Peaks Challenge
#23 Volunteer at a food bank is now #23 NYC @ Christmas
#9 Visit Wales is now #9 Visit the Lake District
My friend announced that she didn’t want the Love Actually Wedding scene re-created at her wedding as she thought it may make the ceremony a little tacky in hindsight. So this one had to go and be replaced.
Volunteering at a food bank had to be swapped for a new goal due to myself not having access to a car during the week, plus working part time for the NHS and doing my dog walking business. Once I have my own vehicle and I can easily travel around I shall look into doing this goal at a later date.
As another goal is to Climb Snowdon I was inevitably going to be visiting Wales. So I have combined those goals together and added a new destination to the mix. Now having a dog makes me conscious of exploring more of England with our four legged friend.
For my mums birthday and Christmas present I have bought for her, my dad, Tim and I to go away for the weekend and then take part in a Ghost Hunt! I’m actually really looking forward to doing this. So a weekend in January 2018 is all booked in for this.
Yorkshire 3 Peaks Challenge date is booked in our diaries too! This is June 2018. I feel there is plenty more to plan but as my brother lives up North he can do some of the organising. Watch this space!
