    Bucket list 2018

    Bucket list 2018 2nd Dec 17 at 9:53 PM
    I've been devising a bucket list for 2018. So far I have 17 things I would like to do, and a couple of them include my fears.

    Anyone else planning to do one for 2018? If so, what would you put on your list? It doesn't matter how small or big the idea is.

    I only had two things on my list for this year, get a dog and get new eyes.
    I got the first one back in February and I get the second one next Thursday/Friday.

    Not even thought about next year yet

    I think the only thing i need for the future is a new bucket.
    Whenever i've done this type of thing in the past, i've never got it.
    I must have a hole in my bucket.

    Same thing I plan every year.

    I plan on taking over the world.
    Hi there! We’ve had to remove your signature. It was so good we removed it because we cannot think of one so good as you had and need to protect others from seeing such a great signature.

    I never make lists of future aims, or make New Year resolutions.
    I'm aimless and irresolute!

    I achieved two things from my bucket list this year - flying business class and having a letter printed in The Guardian, main paper.

    They’re not linked.

    I’d like to see Niagara Falls this year.

    I'm going to re-learn the clarinet. I was at secondary school when I last played it. That's a long time ago...

    Bucket list for next year is to pay off mortgage , and go on holiday.

    I can’t decide whether to work more and feel secure having more in the bank....or to work less....have less stress.....and chill out more switching my head off from the future and relaxing in the present.

    I tend to worry about tomorrow too much I think.
    Yep...still at it, working out how to retire early..

    Too far for me Pete - I'm near Liverpool and have two kids in (different) colleges, so no term time holidays for us. Enjoy your holiday though - but take your thermals

    Southlands Hotel, one of the best in town. It's only for 3 full days, including a day in York and half a day shivering in Whitby looking for Dracula.

    PS. Maybe you would like it to snow

    Scarborough is lovely in the winter. The seas are normally a bit more excited and make such a good noise.
    Its the only thing I miss about being in Scarbados every weekend.
