'Bucket lists'

Something that has been bouncing around in my head for a while and I kind of started about eighteen months ago but then let fall by the wayside is to create 'weekend bucket lists'.

I don't know if you are like me but I have all these great ideas during the week, discover wonderful new stuff, overhear things either on the radio or titbits between people chatting and have dreams of things I'd like to do or achieve myself - seasonal or traditional - that all the information I've taken on board can sometimes be a little overwhelming. Then come the weekend when the family ask 'what shall we do?' all those fabulous thoughts drift right out of my head and we end up doing the same old thing or a spontaneous thing.  

Sometimes the latter is never a bad thing, but I do like to be a little organised and have a plan of action or choice of things we'd like to see or do. 

Some are not hard at all given that we now live surrounded by hills and discovering something new (as we've only been here 7 weeks) isn't all that hard either.  But the super moon is only tomorrow and trying to make a film with my girls to continue my 'Capturing Childhood' course is still proving to be difficult.  Time, logistics...all being at the same place at the same time hasn't aligned in our busy calenders yet.  But I am determined.

So welcome to my first bucket list, of things I'd like to do this weekend.  This also has the added bonus of capturing as many of those 'wish list' moments, ticking them off and sharing the following week.

Sharing our discoveries and dreams...together.
