Summer Bucket List...... Week One

So, clarinascontemplations is hosting a linky party for a Summer Bucket List to help us all achieve those things we need a little encouragement with throughout the summer months. Then each Monday we all link up and see how we are doing, good or lazy!

So between now and September 1st 2013 I have set myself just 5 goals to achieve.

  1. We are going to Spain, Las Filipenas (said in a Spanish accent due to the fact that in an English accent it sounds quite dodgy) towards the end of the holidays. I most definitely need to lose a couple of lbs.  Ok, a stone to be precise.  Can I lose this amount before we go, most certainly not, but I'm going to have a damn good try with the help of Claire's Monday link up meetings.
  2. OK, so here's the thing.  Since signing up on Twitter and starting my blog, my garden has begun to resemble a forest.  The weeds are taking over and all the hard work The Mummy and I put in is gradually going to pot. So by the end of the summer I would love to rid the back border of overgrowth and lay the next section of grass to the side area of the garden.
  3. In March I top coated the woodwork in the hall but, it shames me say, I got fed up and never finished the bannisters.  This is a task that will be difficult to achieve due to the kids being home over summer. And as we all know, kids and gloss top coat don't mix.
  4. I would love to write a fiction book. Therefore during the lazy summer months in the garden, when the kids are amusing themselves, I would love to start putting pen to paper, or fingers to laptop and start the first stirrings of a story.
  5. My next task is a little different. I seem to have a 'thing' about reloading the dishwasher when the kids or The Husband has loaded it. By the end of the summer I would like to be rid of this OCD issue I have.
As I am a week behind everyone linking, I will update week one quickly now.  

Week One Achievement.

I started eating healthily yesterday (it was two of my childrens birthdays so lots of cake had to be finished over the weekend), and tonight the Eldest Daughter and I are starting running with a local club for the next 10 weeks.

As always........Sent wiv Love



  1. Bit worried about the name of the place we are going to !!!!!!

    1. Just keep saying it in Spanish, Mummy. xxx

  2. I've seen a few of these and I think its a great idea for the Summer to make sure you get stuff done. Have a wonderful time in Spain. I'm going to do the same about my garden! Thanks for linking to PoCoLo xx

    1. Hi Tori, I haven't touched any of the weeds as yet but I have been quite good with the diet. Its the first time in months that I haven't pigged out during the weekend, knowing I have to blog about it on Monday! Definitely helping so far. Lynne xx
