Making Plans

There is absolutely nothing I love more than making plans, I love having a packed diary, and lots of different things to look forward too throughout the year. Whether it’s afternoon tea somewhere, a weekend away or a coffee and a catch up with a friend. There really is nothing better that utilising my time (in between working and blogging)

When Luke and I first got together in 2013 we put together a long list of things we wanted to do and experience as a couple. We just started talking about it one day and then put the wheels in motion and a list was formed! There is no order to the list and no time limit to do any of it. We add to it as we go along and tick things off once they have been done.

There are things on our list that we have done more than once, and some things that are a reoccurring activity. And there are also things on the list that will never be done again (Tough Mudder being a top contender)

It occurred to me last night that we haven’t even looked at our list this year! And even if we only do a couple things on it in 2018, we should definitely tick something off!

I actually did a little bit of adding to the list first thing this morning and added climbing Mount Snowdon, a weekend in Wales and also climbing Ben Nevis.

Seychelles will of course most definitely be another adventure that we can tick off but I am sure there will be a few more things we can fit in before the year is out.

I guess it’s the never ending list, and why shouldn’t it be never ending, with so much to see and do out there, I just want to try and fit in as much as I can.

Thanks for dropping by and having a read
