2013 Summer Bucket List

I love writing lists and ticking things off so this year we’ve made a Summer Bucket List. In an ideal world I’d have a grown up bucket list (which picked up where my Day Zero list finished off) which would be full of craft and sewing projects. However, I have two pre-schoolers so let’s be realistic…

Before the toddler starts Nursery we want to do the following:

  • Visit The Shard
  • Ride the bus to Eastcote House Gardens
  • Go plane spotting at Heathrow
  • Use our Peppa Pig World tickets
  • Visit the end of the line stations – Amersham, West Ruislip and Chesham
  • Take the tube to Richmond and sit by the Thames
  • Decorate the toddlers room before he starts Nursery
  • Make my Lego VW van
  • Visit the White Horse in Westbury
  • Master potty training
  • Take a trip to South Ken
  • Visit an Art Gallery
  • Go to Legoland
  • Take a trip on a big train
  • Visit our local RAF bunker
  • Dip our toes in the local Lido
  • Take the toddler on his first cinema visit to see Disney Planes

Goodbye blogging – hello summer of fun!
