Bucket List Update {End of 2018}

And just like that 2018 is over and what a year it has been. At the start of each year I put together a bucket list of things to achieve, do or learn over the course of the next twelve months and now is the time that I sit down and look at how we’ve done – how much we’ve actually managed to tick off during the last year.

Circus 1903 at Royal Festival Hall, Southbank Centre – London

Living Arrows – 52/53 {2018}

Welcome back to another week of Living Arrows. I loved seeing everyone link up last week – and it’s been so nice seeing the children grow through the year, I can’t quite believe we are counting down the last few weeks of 2018.
