101 Bucket List

Over the last couple of years I have seen people's blogs participating in a 101 (things you want to do/see/try/be better at). I have never done it because I don't have a 101 things!!! But then I read Holly's 101 the other day and was totally inspired. I have a travel list that is written out and stuck on my wall and I have a mini bucket list in my head.

So tonight after Simon left I put pen to paper and was so SURPRISED by what I really want to try my hand at. A lot of people do 101 in a year but I have decided to be a little more realistic and do it in two years (even though I know some definitely won't be accomplished in the next 2 years they still mean a lot being on the list)..

I'll confess there are some things on the list that I achieved last year and I am adding them in because they have always been on my mini bucket list. I am going to use Holly's template (hope you don't mind?) because it looked organised and I like organised (must be the teacher in her).
