My Autumn Bucket List (2018)

It’s been a while since I’ve sat and written a bucket list. Once upon a time I would write a list for every season but I’ve been a little busy this year and haven’t really had the time nor the energy to think more than one day ahead. What better to do on a sleepy Saturday than to focus on the future and to set a few goals for the foreseeable? So without further ado, here are a few of the things that I would like to do throughout autumn.

My Autumn Bucket List (2018)

  1. To go for walks through the woods with the children and Maisy (our beautiful basset hound puppy).
  2. To enjoy a weekend away to Blackpool or beyond with our friends
  3. To catch up with my bestie and to organise a regular time for a brew and some banter – there simply hasn’t been a second to stop recently and I miss our chit chats!
  4. To choose a couple of Halloween outfits for the children (and the pooch!) to wear this Halloween.
  5. To make or to buy some brand new Halloween buckets to fill whilst out trick or treating.
  6. To visit our local pumpkin patch and to take some pictures as a family.
  7. To create some Halloween themed crafts, which we will then display around the house along with some new decorations to celebrate the season in style.
  8. To order and to have a brand new front door fitted.
  9. To watch both of our local firework displays with family and friends.
  10. To share sparklers around the bonfire (and most likely the burny bin) with the children.
  11. To order and to have a brand new set of bay windows fitted.
  12. To find and to buy some new boots for the winter (ideally tan or brown leather mid-calf style if I can find something suitable and sturdy enough for my feet).
  13. To have a day out shopping and to buy a couple of cosy cardigans for the cooler weather.
  14. To order and to buy some brand new slipper boots for both my daughter and I.
  15. To bake and to make some autumn cakes and biscuits with the children (including gingerbread and gingerbread men).
  16. To get my hair re-coloured and cut.
  17. To fill and to paint over the cracks which have been awaiting our attention in our bedroom, the study and the kitchen.
  18. To complete watching the Friends box set on Netflix.
  19. To get back to a healthy eating plan and to lose a little weight.
  20. To hang some new blinds in both the bathroom and J’s room.
  21. To book and to start E’s swimming lessons.
  22. To get back to mixing music and to create a couple of new playlists.
  23. To make a return to yoga classes and to get my body back into some kind of shape.
  24. To make lists and to make a start upon the Christmas shopping.
  25. To upload, to organise and to print the past years worth of pictures.
  26. To empty and to reorganise the garage into a useable space.
  27. To replace the rather ‘ancient and crackly’ house phones with something a little less ‘past it’.
  28. To clean and to de-clutter the house room by room.
  29. To make use of my Kindle and get back to reading of an evening.
  30. To find and to order some outdoor decorations for the festive period.

Whether I complete all of the above is debatable, I will certainly give it my best shot and with a little luck I can tick off at least ten of my targets.
