Bucket List Update {May 2016}

Another month that has gone by so, so quickly! But it has been another month of ticking things off our annual bucket list and here’s how we stand at the end of May:

Bucket List Update {May 2016}

Go to a new blog conference

On 1st May I went to Blog On. It was my first blog conference outside of Britmums and I loved it. It was great to go somewhere different, to spend time with bloggers I don’t see often – or who I haven’t met before – and to just have a really great time in Manchester.

Go on a boat

Does a ferry count? We went on a ferry to the Isle of Wight for half term and it couldn’t have been a simpler way to travel. The children loved the novelty of driving onto a boat and they spent the whole journey looking out of the windows at the mainland getting further and further away.

We also went on a tour boat at The Needles whilst on holiday and the children loved it. We were only on it for about twenty minutes but got a great view of the coast and learnt a bit about The Needles too.

Potty train Little Man

This is one that I didn’t think would get ticked off for quite a while but Little Man aced potty training this month, now only wearing nappies and night and having not had a day time accident since a few days after we ditched the day time nappies. High fives to him!

Get dressed up

I ticked this off with my bestie Sarah when we went to visit Careys Manor last week. We had an amazing spa break and in the evening we got dressed up for dinner. It was lovely.

Eat somewhere posh

This can also be ticked off at Careys Manor as the food was definitely posh and we loved every course. It’s always such a treat to eat food like that.

I’m looking forward to ticking off more things as the months go by – I’ll give you another update at the end of June!

    Ooh, I love the idea of an annual bucket list! I’ve got my ’40 Things Before 40′ list and I’m working on an ‘Ultimate Bucket List’ but I never thought of an annual one for all the little things that I want to do throughout the year.
    You’ve ticked off so many already and we’re not even halfway through the year yet. Looking forward to reading updates as you work your way through the rest of the list πŸ™‚

    I do love your bucket list updates! I need to revisit my 2016 bucket list to see if Ive managed to tick anything off! Have an excellent June ????

    Ooh you’re really getting through these! It makes me think that I should write a list for next year, it’s easy to drift by not really doing all the things you’d love to do.

    Hollah for potty training hell. We’re finding it hard work at the moment…
    You MUST go to a gig soon. I always leave them on such a high… and the weather will soon be perfect to fly a kite.
    Will you be doing blog on winter?

      I hope I will be at Blog on, just trying to sort my travel out πŸ™‚ AND we are actually going to a concert next weekend! x

    You’re doing so well at crossing things off your list! That food looks amazing – fine dining is something I’m a huge fan of!! Well done to you and LM on the potty training front – you’ve done really well! x

    Oh wow it sounds like you had a fab month – and well done Little Man with the potty training – I am dreading potty training if I am honest. Blog On sounded like lots of fun – I am hoping to go to the next one =)
