The Bucket List

Over the holidays in Ireland, I hooked up with my college buddies - Every year us 5 girls try to meet up somewhere in Europe. It's funny, it's been 20 years since we were in college ( yikes!) but sitting in a bar, looking around at the same faces, we might as well be back there, in our favourite pub, The Rogue,  giggling girls with our whole lives in front of us.
We've gone down different paths, some of us have got married, some have had children ( 2 out of the 5 have had sets of twins, what are the chances of that?), some have high flying careers and some of us are living in France wondering what they will do next ( ahem)
As one of us was turning 40 and having a mini mid life crisis, we all decided to put together our bucket list, you know, things to do before you kick the bucket, but in our case, we put an age deadline of 45 for us as none of us are planning on bucket kicking any day soon..
My Bucket List ( you had to think of 3 things) is:
  1. Buy a sailboat ( even a teeny weeny one) and learn how to sail with the kids
  2. Write and publish a book
  3. Get off the proverbial fence
What would be on your bucket list for the next 4 to 5 years??


  1. Year 1....Annihilating my husband's family.
    Years 2 3 4 and 5..Enjoying peace of mind brought about by action in Year 1.

    1. Hahahaha, that really did make me laugh out loud!

  2. My bucket list: Sell a crapton of the books I've written and write 50 more, go to Ireland, go to NYC for New Year's Eve and watch the ball drop in Times Square :) Lovely post. WRITE ON!

    1. Good luck with those Jo! If you're going to Ireland, give me a shout!
