Those of you who know me will know that both of my parents passed away far too soon. With a big birthday looming – and I know what you are thinking but its not 21! – I have decided to put together a pre birthday bucket list. So here goes.
I want to run my third half marathon, and hit a PB at the same time. I am realistic enough to know that I am not mentally strong enough for a full marathon, but I have done this twice, so I just need to man up and get off my bum.
I want to visit America – New York, Florida, New Orleans and California. These are the places that draw me in, I’m not sure why.
I want more tattoos. I already have two, but I’m not telling you where. I need to work on a design that means something to me.
I want to own a 2 seat convertible, not red. I am not sure why I don’t like red cars, but I just don’t. Or yellow ones. It will be very nippy and totally mid life crisis territory. I plan to ride around with no top on as much as possible, with very loud music and embarrass my children.
Nothing earth shattering, but I felt really conscious when writing this list that there were so many I’s. As a mum, wife, business owner I am very used to putting others first. But this list is all about me. I am making no excuses. Sometimes you have to put yourself first. I also noticed, as bucket lists go, I guess its kind of short. That makes me happy.
