We said we wanted to travel.... we did

We said we wanted to escape the city and move to a small town... we did

I wanted to find my ancestors....... I did, and found OH's too!

A few more things to do......... but I'll make sure there isn't a hole in the bucket

I've got to learn to drive - an item my family have put in my 'bucket list' for me!


Wend Report 8 Jul 2013 19:21

I know what you mean Lyndi ;-) :-D


Lyndi Report 8 Jul 2013 19:16

I've started to detox my house for the same reason, partly so the kids don't have to do it when I'm gone and partly because there are some things I just don't want the kids to know about :-D ;-)


Wend Report 8 Jul 2013 19:13

That's easy. To finish all the projects I started and to put several years' worth of photos into albums AND label them with names :-D

Also, to get rid of all the *stuff* I've collected over the years, so others don't have to do it when I've kicked the bucket :-(

Oh my goodness, go on ship to America, then go to see Grand Canyon. Overcome my fear of flying so I can visit and see where my daughter lives in South Africa.. Live long enough to see all my grandchildren achieve their dreams.

Carol :-D

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

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.


AnnCardiff Report 8 Jul 2013 18:08

well thank you kindly Lyndi :-D

mastering my hula hoop would be one


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 :-)


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 ;-)


AnnCardiff Report 8 Jul 2013 17:47

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

Tenerife Sun Report 8 Jul 2013 17:45

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 :-(


Lyndi Report 8 Jul 2013 17:33

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.


LadyScozz Report 8 Jul 2013 17:30

No - any good?


Lyndi Report 8 Jul 2013 17:26

Did you see the film The Bucket List ?


Lyndi Report 8 Jul 2013 17:23

Hahaha - no way LadyScozz, are you? :-)


Lyndi Report 8 Jul 2013 17:22

You beat me to it LadyScozz ;-)
