As I am approaching another birthday, I thought it was fitting to evaluate how i am getting on with my bucket list, if for no other reason than to give myself a little kick up the bum to actually do some more of this stuff!
Well, after a quick scan, it is safe to say I have not quite achieved as much as I would have liked to but boy, have I had a good time trying.
Now, I am still yet to make someone laugh so hard a little wee comes out, and although I haven’t set myself a specific goal of doing this (honest) I have decided that I should be funny around my pregnant colleague as my success rate might be slightly higher with her (so I hope!).
I also haven’t yet had champagne and strawberries in a posh place, or took a ride in a hot air balloon. I mean, these are not that far out there as far as lifetime goals go, but I have not yet managed to do it! What i have done is visit Paris and Amsterdam (tick Anne Frank’s house) I have booked a flight to Vegas, a helicopter ride across the Grand Canyon and I’ve travelled along the longest zip wire in Europe.
The one thing that is concerning me though, is Cliff Richard’s autograph. I mean, I am going to his 70th Anniversary concert with my mother next week – so I’m hoping to just casually bump into him outside the Royal Albert Hall, and be like, “yo, Cliff, give us your signature, mate” – but if this plan fails, i am massively running out of time – i mean he is 70 and hes parading around that stage like an 18 year old, he’s a high risk case for pulling a muscle.
On a more serious note though, I actually have just over 3 years left to achieve the rest of my list and when i wrote it i genuinely had no idea of how fast time goes. Like, it literally zooms by and before you know it, its over. So, I am going to make sure that I enjoy every single second of it. Life is precious and way to short.
So, if you’re reading this now, Go, make that list, set some goals and have the best time ever achieving them.
I might not be quite where I had planned in terms of number of ticks yet, but boy I am having fun working my way through them!
