My 2018 Bucket List

Happy New Year and all that malarkey, here’s hoping that 2018 will be a healthy, wealthy and wonderful year for us all.

Sod making ‘New Years Resolutions’, I never stick to them anyway! Instead I have opted to write a ‘Bucket list’ filled with a range of goals, wishes and aspirations for the year ahead. I highly doubt that I’ll achieve all of these but it would be nice to tick off at least ten items (which there are a fair few to choose from) from my list.

Should you fancy having a read through my list of hopes, dreams and aspirations for 2018 then please go ahead but in William Butler Yeat’s words “Tread softly because you tread on my dreams”.
