My Pre-40 Bucket List

I’m fast approaching my mid thirties, and have been thinking about all the things I want to do before I hit the big 4-0. It seems appropriate to write a bucket list, and as I have 5Β½ years to tick everything off, it should all be perfectly achievable. Ok, so it’s a teeny tiny bit ambitious. You’ve gotta have dreams though, right?

– write and publish my book, I’m hoping to tick this off first

– go on a family holiday to Thailand, even if it takes us the whole 5Β½ years to save for it!

pre-40 bucket list– buy a house. No explanation needed, and definitely the biggest challenge!

– do a butchery/knife skills course. This is something I’ve been talking about doing for years, but just haven’t got round to

– have a massive party that doesn’t revolve around the kids. I didn’t have a hen do (because I was pregnant) or a 30th celebration (because I’d just had 4yo) so at some stage I’d really like to make up for that

Do you have any major bucket-list aspirations? I’d love to hear about them in the comments section below.

  1. Great list and I especially like that its not too long! You are so right about parties, I can’t remember the last proper party i arranged that didn’t involve fairy dresses and balloons – think it may have been our wedding! Good luck with your book, holiday planning (I love Thailand!) and butchery course? Brilliant! I’ll be hitting 40 this year, so may compile a personal bucket list… Just 8 mths to go! Would love you to come link this up to #AllAboutYou, live right now! http://www.mama-andmore.com/2014/02/allaboutyou-link-and-pin-party-week-5.html?m=1 (popping by from #MagicMoments)

  2. With you on the “write a book”, or maybe just keep writing! Trouble with my buckets is they turn into “shoulds” ….great #magicmoment…and you’ve got me thinking about where I’d really like to travel to.

  3. You’re well ahead of the game in that case πŸ™‚ hubby and I met in Asia, and we’re desperate to go back and take the kids. Just need to save those pennies πŸ˜‰

  4. I’m 36-and-a-bit, hmmm maybe I should write a pre-40 wish list… I think it would have to include writing a book (haven’t got further than chapter 2 at the moment!) and getting some short stories and/or poetry published. I’ll enjoy hearing how you get on with your book – maybe it will help motivate me! Have you heard about the #writingwarriors linky at Beautiful Misbehaviour? It’s for blogger mums to support each other to achieve writing ambitions! #magicmoments

  5. I think it’s always good to have some longer term aims and aspirations. Finishing my book is on my list too, I’ve set myself the deadline of when I turn 30 so I have a couple of years to do it but quite a few thousand words left to go! Thailand is a beautiful holiday destination and well worth saving for I would say! Love the idea of a party all for you too. #Magicmoments
