My Monthly Bucket List #1

So February is almost upon us. It’s a super short month so I’m going to try to keep my list quite short.

February – the month of love… And pancakes. Mmm pancakes. It’s also half term so lots on. We only have 28 short days so I best get cracking!

1) Have a Wintery walk and spot some snowdrops
I love seeing them popping through; it feels like Spring isn’t all that far away and I feel excited that the nights will become lighter and days will be less chilly. I haven’t seen any snowdrops yet so that’s my February mission
2) Make pancakes that LOOK like pancakes. It’s fair to say I’m not all that great at cooking but I’m determined that they will be sort of circular and definitely edible
3) Buy my husband a Valentine’s card. I forgot about Christmas – ooops so I best make a decent effort!
4) Make a Valentine’s card with Charlie . He has quite a few admirers at school but there’s one girl he officially calls his girlfriend and he’s said he wants to marry her! I mentioned Valentines Day and he said he wanted to make a card so we shall!
5) Book a hotel for a night away. The husband and I have been talking for months about going away. We were supposed to last September then November but it never happened so we are hoping for a belated Valentine’s/ early birthday for him. It’ll be our first ever night away together since the girls were born 20 months ago so feeling a tad nervous and excited all at the same time
6) Take more photos. My iPhone is jam packed but I have a proper lovely camera that I rarely use. I need to use it much more – perhaps capture some snowdrops (multi tasking eh?!)
7) See Shaun the Sheep movie! I Charlie really wants to see this so I will have to see if I can get someone to sit with the girls for a few hours in half term so we can have some 1 on 1

That’ll be it for now. I don’t want to set myself loads of unrealistic goals but hopefully I will be able to cross some of these off. So come on February – let’s be having you!!

B xx

    Pancakes sound like a great idea – they are the toddler’s favourite so will give them a try here too. I suspect your efforts might be better than mine!!

    I never make pancakes, that’s all hubby. I just sit and wait for them to be plated up. I would love a night away with hubby, that may find it’s way onto my March list! xx

    Sounds like a lovely list of goals. I want to see Shaun the Sheep with H as well, looks fab and reminds me of my childhood! Hope you book the night away x

    I love snow drops as well. I’m sure I planted some in pots last year but there;s no sign of them yet so maybe I meant to but never got round to it!

    Love your list. I am the same with photos, it’s so much easier to take photos on my phone but really should use my camera more. Snowdrops are lovely and it’s a nice way to all get out and about. Hope you get your night away booked xx
