Planning ahead

I know that they say that you shouldn’t plan ahead too much, but how can you look to the future with serious excitement if you don’t? When you book a holiday you’re planning, when you buy a house, it’s planning, so why shouldn’t you make lots of general life plans?

Although it’s not detrimental to my future wellbeing, I decided today to begin to take my bucket list to a whole new planned level!! For example, I want to go to Miami, so I’m gonna plan where I want to stay and what I want to do, so that when the day does come where I book the holiday, I can get excited about all of the things I want to see and do, things that, unless I write down at the time , I’d probably forget about! Kind of like little girls that start planning their weddings in a wedding scrap book from the age of 9 haha.

Oh….I appear to have added yet another thing to my list too….travel on the Orient Express. This may have to go on a general life long bucket list though, I’m not convinced that trips gonna happen in the next 5 years, unless I have a lottery win or a very generous donation from someone. Any takers??


Bucket List – please don’t judge me!!

After reading a post tonight by fellow blogger Lesley Carter I became inspired to share my bucket list with you. This bucket list is really a list of things I want to accomplish by the time I hit 30, I’m currently 25 so I figure if I shift myself I stand a pretty good chance of succeeding right?

So, it’s pretty long, and I’m trying to work on what to concentrate on for next year. Once I’ve decided I’ll let y’all know, unless you have any suggestions for me?

  1. Take cooking lessons in Italy
