no, but on my 'bucket' list will be to find out why it's CALLED a 'bucket list'? lol

LadyScozz

LadyScozz Report 8 Jul 2013 17:20

Because it's a list of thing you want to do before you kick the bucket.

:-D

Did you see the film The Bucket List ?

LadyScozz

LadyScozz Report 8 Jul 2013 17:30

No - any good?

I enjoyed it, about 2 guys who meet in hospital while being treated for cancer.
One white and rich, the other black and poor, they end up becoming friends and go off on a 'bucket list' trip of a lifetime.

No I don't now, I used to have one but knew I would never be able to afford to do the things that were on there. Now I'm too old to do the things that were on there :-(

AnnCardiff Report 8 Jul 2013 17:47

so, what exactly is a bucket list? :-S

Lyndi

Lyndi Report 8 Jul 2013 18:01

Some of the things were very simple - like seeing my daughter get married.

She is still living with her partner with no sign of getting hitched, but 3 years ago she lost a lot of weight with a slimming club and they put on a Charity Masked Ball with a fashion show by the slimmers. My daughter came out wearing a wedding dress looking stunning and radiant - the radiance due in no small part to the fact she had 2 days earlier found out she was pregnant. If she doesn't get married I can hold that picture in my heart for ever :-)

As she had been told she wouldn't be able to have children they were thrilled, and to hold my grandchild in my arms was another thing on my list so BONUS :-D

Seeing the Northern lights is proving to be a difficult one - they hide when I try ;-)

Lyndi Report 8 Jul 2013 18:02

Ann, it is a list you make of things you would like to do or achieve before you die :-)

AnnCardiff

AnnCardiff Report 8 Jul 2013 18:08

mastering my hula hoop would be one

I have achieved some things on my list. Like Lyndi I have seen both my children married and happy, I have learned to drive (my list was made about 40 years ago) I have sailed through the Panama Canal, learned to speak another language (more out of necessity than choice) but I still can't swim. I have had numerous terrifying lessons but I am frightened of water.

I went to Venice - that was one of my "to do things"
