Hello Everyone!

Over the last couple of years I have been collecting together a list of things that I would love to experience and achieve throughout my life (in other words, a ‘Bucket List’) in the ‘notes’ on my phone. As the list has grown long enough that it takes me a good couple of seconds to scroll to the bottom, and, when peering over my shoulder, my brother said, and I quote, “WOW! Is that a to-do-list? That is so long!”, I figured it was about time to transfer the list to somewhere a bit more permanent.
I quite like the way my Brother described it as a ‘to-do-list’, it means that I almost have to achieve all of the things on it, rather than just trying to. It means that I have to say “Yes!” whenever I get the opportunity to tick one off, and that is exactly what I want to do.

I am going to keep adding to this Bucket List over the years as I find more things that I want to witness and come out of saying “I did it!”. Hopefully I am also going  to be continuously ticking them off too and creating new and exciting stories and memories to tell, about how I completed each one, so keep checking back on this post to see any recent changes!
