Bucket list

Do you have a bucket list? I don’t. I’m not nearly organised enough to create one, plus I wouldn’t really know what to put on it. I’m more of a ‘whatever happens happens’, hakuna matata, manana, and as my granny used to say “Whit’s fur ye wull nae go by ye” type of person. Yes, lazy I guess is a pretty good description too.

My mum however is the most organised, to-do-lister, bucket-list type person you’ll ever meet. She never slows down, never SITS down, and does everything at 100mph. She does have a bucket list and I’m happy to tell y’all that I’m going to be helping her to cross a few items off this list in the coming week.

She’s taking me and my sister to Hawaii with her (item 1 on her bucket-list) as it’s her 70th birthday next Saturday. Hiking a volcano (item 2), snorkelling (item 3), going whale watching on a boat (item 4) – I haven’t the heart to tell her that I googled the ‘whales in Hawaii thing’ and the whale watching season is November to May. There’s also a helicopter ride (item 5) on the bucket-list, but my sister and I have secretly organised that one ourselves for the actual day of her birthday. I’m sure there will be many more items crossed off the list by the time the vacation is over.

I’m just happy I’m getting a free trip to Hawaii and get to take my camera.

A bucket – for your bucketlist!

So tell me what’s on your bucket list….

  1. I think either I’ve been incredibly lucky in my life, or incredibly unimaginative, because I really struggle to think of anything more that I desperately want to do, that I haven’t already, before popping off this mortal coil!
    That said, I’d like to get a really good look at the Northern Lights one day, oh and possibly take a trip down a bob-sleigh run…there you go Alba, the “Dookes Bucket List” – all two items!
    Oh, yes. have a great time in Hawaii!

    1. You can probably do both these at the same time if you go to Iceland or Norway or somewhere North and snowy. 🙂
      Thanks D. I’ll try but i’m with my mum and sister so who knows what shenanigans they’ll get up to…. 😉
