Bucket lists

I think deep down, whether we use the phrase 'bucket list' or not, everyone of us has a list of things they would like to do or see before death.
Image result for bucket list quotesI have been very fortunate that this year already I have had the opportunity do cross a few items off my bucket list.
I went to Utah to visit Tiffani.
I saw the Mormon Tabernacle Choir not once, but twice
I heard 'Don't Look Back in Anger' live
I saw Richard Ashcroft play live.
This week I get to see The Avett Brothers play live in London (EEK!!!)
I realise how very fortunate I am to be in a position where I can enjoy these things, and I started to think about my own bucket list.
I started to think about creating a 40 before 40 list.
The only thing with that is that it then leads to a 50 before 50 etc....
So I decided that the best thing to do is to create a bucket list.
It will be a work in progress so I can add to it as I come across other things I would like to do.
This time, I shall keep the list on a tab at the top of the blog so that I can cross it out as I complete things, rather like I did for my 30 before 30 challenge.

So..... the big question. What is going to be on my bucket list. I hope to have 100 items, but so far I have only thought of 25. If you have any suggestions of what I have forgotten feel free to let me know!

2. Pass my driving test
3. Visit Rome
4. Get published
5. See the seven wonders of the world
6. Get my daisy tattoo
7.See a play at the Globe Theatre
8. Learn to swim
9. Buy a flat
10. Buy my first car
11. Fly in a hot air balloon
12. See an opera
13. See a ballet
14. Do a colour run
15. Compile my family tree
16. Bring my dad back to Italy on holiday
17. Visit the Winter Palace in St. Petersburg
18. Learn a foreign language
19. Learn to crochet
20. Make a blanket
21. Grow a vegetable garden
22. Visit Albert Hall
23. Revisit Utah
24. Take a cruise

Do you have a bucket list? I would love to hear some of your ideas!!

  1. When you come back to Utah, I've got a friend who does tattoos, my mom can teach you how to crochet, I can help you with your family tree (and then embroider it for you ) and i dream of a hot air balloon ride too, so maybe we can share that.

Missing Marguerite. 14 years later.

On this day, 14 years ago, the world lost a little bit of its magic, when at 11pm, my little sister took her final breath and life changed as we all knew it. She was only 17 years old. 17 years and 19 days to be exact. As I sat here today reading all the lovely messages written about her, my heart soared with pride in the fact that in her short time with us, she managed to have such a big impact on so many people. Marguerite Mary O'Dwyer, an ambassador for mischief, mockery and for having a marvellous time. I miss her so much.

It is funny how every year there is something different that I focus on for the anniversary. I never choose my train of thought, I think the year since the last anniversary chooses it for me. Last night, I got fairly plastered on wine and when my other half went to his bed, I sat and sang along to every sad song I could think of. I had a wee chat with Mags before I went to bed and woke up this morning well rested and ready to seize the day. 
I got quite sad a…

Not many people are aware of it, but I had a bit of a health scare last week. I went for a regular 15 minute check up with my GP and spent the following 5 days in hospital going through every test imaginable to man. I am still in the middle of tests but the prognosis is so far positive and I have been allowed home for rest which is fabulous, but good god did I get a fright. And if I am honest I'm not sure Stuart is quite right after it all either!


I have been joking how I would love a good old MOT (NCT for the Irish amongst us), for a while now. They say mocking is catching, and I have fairly gone through the MOT process this last week. Oh boy has it been a fast week! In that time I have had more blood taken than was shed in the Game of Thrones. My hand is so bruised it looks like I have my first tan! I have seen my pancreas, liver, kidneys and an ovary (very cool scan if I say so myself!), I have had my pee collected in little buckets/bottles for 24hrs, and I have pretty much eith…

It has been a long, long time since I have written a blog post.
I don't know why, it has taken me so long, nor shall I apologise for it.
I could give you a thousand excuses and reasons, but I guess the main reason is that I didn't feel like I had an awful lot to say!

That is not true, I always have a lot to say. The topics that have been on my mind however are quite emotive (mostly Brexit related, and let's be honest we have read and heard more than enough about that shite), and it is very difficult to write something when you yourself don't even understand how you feel about it.

For me it is mostly disappointment, and nobody wants to read a whole blog piece about me feeling disappointed. So tonight, I am writing a much more positive one. I am writing some thankfuls.
I have spent the last few months reading and writing. I have spent some time with my family back in Ireland, and spent some wonderful time with Stuart, his family and my friends here in Aberdeen. I was ref…
