Our 2017 Bucket List…

Our 2017 Bucket List…

I love a good list, it makes me feel organised and gives me something to focus on. Each year I make a note of what we want to achieve each year, normally it surrounds jobs around the house. This year I thought I would extend this and do a bucket list of not only household jobs, but also fun things we would like to do as a family.


  1. Get our loft boarded (boring, but practical!)
  2. Have a patio laid
  3. Install a shoe rack in the hallway
  4. Buy new bedroom furniture for Holly
  5. Get blinds/curtains/shutters at all the windows
  6. Decorate the girls bedrooms

The Girls…

  1. Potty Train Holly
  2. Find new swimming lessons for Holly
  3. Alice to start Rainbows
  4. Have an Easter Egg Hunt
  5. Go on more bike rides
  6. Have a birthday party
  7. Move Holly into a bed

Andy and I…

  1. Have a night away together
  2. Go to the cinema
  3. Have a day date
  4. Andy to go to a football match
  5. Laura to have a spa day
  6. Laura to go to a blogging conference
  7. Andy to play golf
  8. Have friends over for dinner

As A Family…

  1. Go to a National Trust Property that we’ve not been to before
  2. Go to the beach and eat fish and chips
  3. Have a holiday
  4. Go camping for the first time
  5. Visit Devon
  6. Go to the cinema
  7. Visit a theme park
  8. A trip to London
  9. Go ice skating
  10. See a panto

When I look at this list I am excited for 2017 and what it will mean for our family. To make our house a home and to have lots of lovely family fun along the way. It’s a big year for Holly with moving to a bed, potty training and starting pre-school, but I know she will take it all in her stride. As for Alice come the summer she will have finished her first year at school and I couldn’t be prouder of her.

I will give you an update each month on how we are getting on with ticking these of the list.
