On the lookout for more ideas for my list


So, with February almost over, there are a few things that I’ve been able to tick off this month from my bucket list: go up to the viewing deck of The Shard, learn to play the ukulele, do a snow angel and visit another UK city, Chichester.

But this month has seen a couple of really exciting new things go in the diary for later this year like doing an adult-only sleepover at the Natural History Museum with hubby in July (which looks like an action-packed night and, if we do get any sleep, it’ll be in the Hintze Hall underneath a 25-metre suspended blue whale skeleton) and we’ve also booked a table at Dans le Noir, London for September where you literally eat in the dark!

And it won’t be long until a friend and I embark on a short cruise on P&O Ventura where we’ve booked ourselves in a suite to be spoilt rotten with butler service! We’re getting SO excited about this and need to get buying our clothes for the glamorous dinners. It’ll be a great precursor to a longer cruise to Scandinavia and Russia with hubby.


I have spent way too much time today looking online at other people’s bucket lists and haven’t even made a dent on the long list of reports I need to write! But seeing other people’s ideas is a source of inspiration and I think I might add a trip on the Orient Express……with someone special in mind. And, being a lifelong Liverpool FC fan, perhaps go and see them play?

So, in March, I plan to visit England’s smallest city of Wells, continue with my weekly volunteering for teenagers with complex general learning difficulties and, in typical Sarah-style,………start some church-bell ringing training,!!!!!

Success! I can play the ukulele….!!!

ukulele successWell, I can play ‘Something’ on the ukulele by the Beatles with thanks to guidance from YouTube. I think the key was having the ukulele next to me pretty much most of the time over the last few days so I kept picking it up to practise and voila! So, that’s another challenge ticked off! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xzKrbveYFtA

Incredibly excited but I’m ticking off a huge challenge/experience in May….a cruise! My lovey friend and I are going to Bruge for the weekend on P&O Ventura and have decided that if you’re going to do a cruise, you might as well really go for it., so we’ve got a suite. With that comes a butler (so cool!!!!!), daily canapes, champagne and chocolates on arrival, big balcony and lots of other things. I started to look at dresses last night for the black tie dinner……and I found a gorgeous one 🙂 And if that short cruise goes well, the one to Scandinavia and Russia might be next.
