My Monthly Bucket List #2

Wow! I can’t believe how quickly February has sped by. I know it’s a super short month but even so how has it been four weeks since my last Monthly Bucket List post? I hope you all have been having fun getting out and about (or maybe not given some of the rather dodgy weather!) Well here is my last months bucket list – how did I do?

1) Have a Wintery walk and spot some snowdrops – TICK We have managed to squeeze in two lovely walks. The first was because we had no snow so decided to go to the Clee Hill in Shropshire which always gets tonnes of snow and it was awesome! We also went to Carding Mill Valley in half term which wasn’t snowy but we went stream paddling. Will definitely be back in the summer months!

2) Make pancakes that LOOK like pancakes – Hmm. They were edible and slightly round. What do you think?!

3) Buy my husband a Valentine’s card – I got him one HURRAH! Didn’t stretch to a present as he was adamant he didn’t want one – which was awkward when he gave me a bottle of perfume!

4) Make a Valentine’s card with Charlie – he made four!! Three for the girls at school and also one for his aunty as he wanted to treat her. Incredibly ssweet!

5) Book a hotel for a night away – as you read this I’ll be on our way for our very first night away as a couple since well before the girls were born!! I’m feeling a tad nervous and will miss them like crazy but we are only going an hour away so it’s not too bad. The hotel looks lovely and cocktails is firmly on my agenda!

6) Take more photos. I’ve been a little bit better but I still find myself using my iPhone – namely because I always forget the big camera. I have got a bag for it so I’m hoping this will make it easier to carry around.

7) See Shaun the Sheep movie – we did this on the last day of half term week. And I’m afraid to say I was a bit disappointed! There was no dialogue whatsoever throughout the entire film wich made it a bit boring for me.

Sooo I’d say I was quite successful! So what does March bring…Here’s what I’d like to achieve

1) This is a BIGGY. I want to join the gym. I’ve been putting it off for months and months but this month I will go and sort it all out. It’s really time to pull my ginger out and get doing something.

2) Try to get MumsNet front page or be a Tots100 Good Read I know I know you shouldn’t  write for others but I’ve never been a Tots Good Read and haven’t been on MumsNet this year so it’s a personal bloggy goal. (Best write some decent posts then!!!!)

3) Go for a lunch date with my sister. I am very lucky to have such a wonderful relationship with my sister. She drives me crazy at times but we are incredibly close. She works in town so I would love to try to make more of an effort to have time just the two of us as we always have the kids with us so I’d like to try to factor this into March

4) Continuing on from February – I also want to make more time with my husband. It’s his birthday in a few weeks so this is a good excuse!

5) I’m going to steal one of Jo at A Frumpy Mum’s list and ensure I clean my bloody car out!

6) Along with the gym joining I’d like to start on a weight loss plan so I’m going to stick lose a bit of weight in there too!

7) We are off to Bluestone at he end of the month so I’m really wanting to visit the beach – rain or shine I want to have a beach walk. We live so far from the sea so it’s a rare treat. I’m sure there’s lots of lovely things to do there so I’m just wanting to relax and enjoy family time.

So how did you all get on? I look forward to finding out. Thanks so much for linking up. It’s great to get other ideas, thoughts and inspirations from all of you lovely folks!

    I’m off to bluestone on 9th, shame we’re not at the same time!! Lovely, your blog is one of my faves. Try not to be too consumed with ththe mumsnet and tots, they tend to pick the themes they want on the day. I’m starting exercise DVDs this week so hopefully that has an impact for next months bucket list xxx

    Wowee you’ve had a great month! I can’t wait to hear all about your weekend away! x

    You certainly packed a lot into a short month! Disappointing about Shaun the Sheep movie though, I thought our twins might like it, but i”m not sure now.

    Well done on your February list, hope you had a lovely time away. Great list for March 🙂 xx

    Fabulous list and those photos are incredible. So it seems we’ll be at Bluestone at the same time – I promise I won’t be that annoying crazy stalker lady but would be lovely to meet you and say hi. I’ll be the one hiding from the camera too.
    Going back to your list – my car constantly needs cleaning. My two are mucky pups. Love making a mess, I swear they are feral. Enjoy ticking off that list lovely and I’m so pleased you managed your night away. Matt and I soooo need to do that. XXXX

    I’m so glad I found this fab linky! You did so well last month, love the snowy photo it looks so pretty! I hope you had an amazing time away with the hubby (I now feel guilty I didn’t put anything about my other half!). I look forward to reading how you gone on.

    They all sound like really achievable goals for this month. I bet you are so excited for your holiday. We are going away ourselves at the beginning of April and I can’t wait. I love your bloggy goals and I have similar ones for myself. You’ve done great to have already been on mumsnet so well done you. 🙂
    I could also do with joining the gym, I think if I exercised more I would feel better and have some more energy. Just need the motivation now.

    Lovely list of stuff. My car desperately needs doing too. Good luck with the gym. Exercise is on my list too, it’s so hard to find the time and motivation, but know I will feel better for it x

    Oh, I need to go and read how your child-free night went now. Those photographs are lovely. I love bundling up in warm clothes and going for wintry walks. You have some great goals for next month. I have never been on Mumsnet’s front page and I would love that too. Also, as it is your hubby’s birthday you probably should spend some time with him. Hee hee! Thanks for hosting lovely. I am so pleased I managed to get my arse in gear and link up this month. Hugs Mrs H xxxx

    Ooh, a child free night sounds good, will be a while before I get one of those! That’s so lovely you’re close with your sister, I have an older brother, but not that close really. Have fun at Bluestone, sounds good from everyone else who has gone so far! Off to write my own list! 🙂 xx
