My 'Kick The Bucket' List;

 I think that most people at some stage have written a bucket list. I've read and heard many, many of them and nodded away thinking 'I would like to do that too' For some reason I have never attempted to write one of my own....until now.

Do the Gold Coast Marathon 10K run. I know that it's not a huge distance, the marathon itself would be a far more impressive goal...but this is me I'm talking about, until recently I was 'allergic' to exercise of any kind so 10Ks is a pretty decent aim for someone of my fitness calibre.

Travel around NZ in a camper. Which is our plan for next year. Hopefully we will return with our sanity intact!

Drive a rally a race. Sounds insane...and it is. But for some reason it has always been a secret ambition of mine.

Go to Hogwarts....And I'm only half joking.

Get published. A book or either writing for a newspaper or magazine would be my idea of career heaven.

Go to the loo...without being interrupted, small goal but it is nigh on impossible.

Dance in the moonlight.....completely and utterly starkers....Oh, I forgot, already done that one...Ok, would like to do it again!

Foster a child. Although I've finished having my babies I know that there is room in our lives and hearts for more. It would be a wonderful thing if we could brighten the existence of a little person who's future would be bleak otherwise.

 Lie on the beach on a tropical island....and read. (A Pina Colada wouldn't go astray either)

There are many, many other things that I would like to do and achieve personally and as a family. But this will do as my little tentative 'bucket list' .....for now anyway.

Do you have any secret goals/plans that you would like to achieve? Either in the near future or at some point in your life?


  1. I love your bucket list! Some of them so simple and really achievable, others dreams that you'll have to make happen! LOVE it!
    I have so many, but mostly I just want to finish this house and live in my beautifully personalised home!

  2. You danced starkers in the moonlight? Was there anyone else there? I think it's important to have dreams and things to aim for - go get 'em!

  3. If you figure out how to go to Hogwarts can you let me know? I'd like to come too!
    My bucket list probably needs to be more defined. The unofficial one in my head consists of things like "travel more" (I'd like to go everywhere. That's achievable right?), learn how to play musical instruments, learn a few languages, and get published would be there too.
    To be more straight-forward, I'd like to visit every state and territory in Australia.
