My Monthly Bucket List MAY

1) Get my nails done
We have a wedding at the end of May (an all day invite) and I desperately want to make a proper effort. I used to have my nails done regularly so it’d be such a treat to have them done but I must remember to book an appointment!!

2) Pay off our holiday
This is more of a reminder as I know the balance of our July holiday is due this month so I must remember to tell my husband!

3) Buy a bench and plants
I’m on a roll with the garden. I’m hoping the new turf takes as it was a nightmare last summer as it was so uneven I kept panicking about the girls tripping over. It looks lovely and we need a new bench (and eventually new furniture) as we were given one but it hasn’t faired well in the winter. I am also wanting to take out the rose as it gets wild and the girls have a tendency to sniff any flowers so think it may be a little dangerous!

4) Start deciding on the girls birthday presents
I am in complete denial that my girls are going to be 2 at the start of June and will cry a LOT but I need to get organised as we have a busy May lined up. We actually bought them a wooden kitchen at Christmas but as we went away it was too difficult to transport especially with a rather inquisitive 6 year old so that will their main present. I have also been looking at HappyLand stuff as think that will be a good gift that will grow with them throughout the year. But I have no doubt it will be dominated by Peppa Pig and Waybuloo as they’re their current favourite obsessions!

5) Start logging my monthly stats
This was a really interesting idea that I heard from BlogCamp. It would only be to jot down the number of followers on each channel at the start of the month to see how many I’ve gained/lost. I would be interesting to capture how my blog is growing.

I’ll leave it here as going June is  busy one too! Don’t forget to link up here. Thanks for supporting #monthlybucketlist

    I LOVE your first one, all my nails have now broken since baby boy arrived 🙁 I also love how it is so different, in the UK you look forward to summer in Dubai you dread it and camp back to the UK!! X

    I love getting my nails done but actually like sitting down and doing my own. Hope you have fun (I don’t really like weddings) sounds like a busy month. Our May is busy but got our holiday soon so not all hectic! xx

    Great list, I have been keeping a note of my followers every so often, and it is good motivation. I would love to get my nails done, enjoy the pampering. x

    Hi lovely, I use this link up every month to log my own stats and followers etc, I find it really keeps me focused on building them, since I am putting the numbers out there for public scrutiny eek!
    Our garden is a real project at the moment, we have some manky old concrete sheds to take down and then new ones to rebuild which will hopefully house my treadmill and some other gym equiptment!
    Glad you had a fun time at blogcamp, and I can only imagine how hard your Mum’s anniversary was *hugs*.

    I have been writing down my stats for a few months now and it is so nice to see growth even when you think there is none. Thanks for hosting! xx

    Oh no, you are making me ashamed of my own nails… Might need to follow your lead and get mine done too.
