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! 

1. See the Northern Lights
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
25.  Keep a diary for a year


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.

Tis the season of the 30s

It has been a little while since I've blogged. Not for any particular reason other than I have been stupidly busy with life and work. Those of you who read my blog regularly had the joy of having to witness me going through a roller coaster few months. The good news is that the roller coaster has stopped, I have survived the ride and I am looking forward to stepping on to the next few fairground attractions! Thank you to everyone who propped me up and supported me along the way!

We are getting into the difficult time of the year now. November. Ugh, how I hate November with a passion. The only positive is that my job is so busy it keeps me distracted from all the tough days and the month moves faster than any other month of the year.

This year, the November lull has arrived in mid-October. Two of my friends turn 30 at the start of November. My little sister should be turning 30 in early November also. Today I was ordering cards and getting together their gifts for their birthdays an…

Happy 30th birthday Marguerite

Dear Marguerite,
In an alternative reality we are preparing ourselves for the weekend of a lifetime this weekend, you turn 30 on Friday! Whoop! Happy birthday little sister! Where have the years gone? I have no doubt that we would be hitting a European city for a few cocktails and a spa weekend or I would be back in Ireland for a party to end all parties. If there was one thing you could do by the tender age of 17 it was throw a party. 
I wish more than anything that we could have that weekend together. A weekend of gossip, of laughter and probably over indulgence. No doubt you would still disapprove of my style, my ability to put on make up and my hair. No doubt your insistence on getting ready for a few hours would still drive me insane. 
I often wonder what your life is like in that alternative reality. Are you a wife? Are you a mum? Are you a career driven woman with plans of world domination? Are you a wanderer with an insatiable lust to see all the world and explore it's wo…

Life of Lu: Thankfuls 29/10/17

I had a moment yesterday.
I cried.
The tears were unfortunate and a manifestation of forgotten memories and regurgitated feelings from years gone by.
The foundation of those tears were this blog, and the content of this blog.
I sometimes forget that there is a little part of the internet that holds my feelings, my deepest darkest moments and my anxieties, as well as my triumphs, delights and fond memories.
The blog was read, and it's contents had the potential to spoil a very important relationship in my life.
I got upset.
As I said, I cried.
For the first time in many years, I remembered the many people who turned their backs on me not because of anything I had done but because of situations in which I was merely an affected bystander. 
The mind is a wonderful thing in that it can hide these moments from memory. It is also a cruel master who can cut you with these moments when you are at your most vulnerable. At this time of the year I am at my most vulnerable. In reality I will…
