Adding to my Bucket List… Again

I feel like a stuck record when I say that my bucket list is “ever expanding”. The fact is that is really is – I add things to the end of the list as and when they come to mind. It might be that I suddenly think of things that might be fun to do,

Some Goals and Challenges for 2015

I always find February an inspiring month. Lots of people I know are making real strides towards their goals for the year – some are marathon training, some have booked amazing trips, some are telling me about adventures they are embarking on, some have started new jobs, some are moving home, and some are doing all

A Bucket List Re-Focus: My “To Try” List

There is something inspiring about a new year. We might be a couple of weeks in now, but the idea of setting goals and resolutions for the next 12 months is still at the forefront of my mind. I’m still considering carefully what that might mean for me; I want to set a series of

Some Goals and Challenges for 2014 – An Update

Despite 2014 looking like an incredibly busy year, back in February I was inspired by a number of people to make a short list of goals and challenges I would like to achieve in 2014. As we are currently working our way through the very last day of the year, and because I just managed to make a

Take Part in the Splodz Blogz Reader Survey

In January Splodz Blogz will be five years old. What started out as somewhere to share my year in photos challenge has turned into an outlet for my writing and especially my bucket list. It has grown into something I absolutely love, and has provided me with lots of opportunities to try new things and meet new people.

What is Adventure?

I love to read about people’s adventures. Learning about the exciting things that other people are getting up to makes me smile – it helps me to understand even more than life is all about the journey and that life can be fun and exciting. I read lots of adventure-focussed blogs, follow adventurers on twitter,

A Sensible Bucket List Item: Grow Your Own

Bucket list items don’t have to be adrenaline fuelled. Sometimes they can be totally sensible.   One such thing on my list is “grow and eat my own vegetables”. You know, plant something, grow it, harvest it, eat it.  I’ve always thought growing your own veg to be a skill that should be known by everyone. If there was

#BEDN 7 > 10 Things

Today is a list day on BEDN – right up my street! We’ve not been given any particular topic, but have simply been asked to share 10 things. I have turned to my things to do list, something I started a good few years ago now to motivate me to try new things and set

Some To Do List Additions

A few weeks ago I posted on twitter and facebook asking for to do list inspiration. I felt like giving my list a bit of an update – it’s time to add some things to it to give me new motivation. And (naturally) you didn’t disappoint! I already had some notes things I’ve thought of

A Things To Do List Update

The beginning of the year is always a good time to update my big list of things to do – my bucket list – the list that gives me plenty of challenges, plenty of things to aim for, plenty of things to think about. Last year (doesn’t 2012 seem like a long time ago?!) I

Segway Experience at Thoresby Hall

This weekend I have ticked another thing off my bucket list.  I received a voucher for a Segway Experience for my 30th last November, and it was finally time to have a go. I can’t remember the first time I saw a Segway but I do remember seeing the “Imagineers” at Disney’s Epcot riding around

Bucket List Update

Over the last couple of weeks I’ve booked a few bucket list things in the diary and also added a few more to the list, so I thought I should update the document on my blog. VISIT MY THINGS TO DO PAGE HERE One of the things I’ve added is to learn to play Trombonology
