Bucket List

Now this is not something that everyone likes to think about, but at the same time it is something that everyone should think about as it can be such fun.

For those out there who are wondering what I am talking about, a Bucket List is a list of things you would like to do before you die. That simple.
I haven't actually managed to see the movie 'The Bucket List' yet although I have been told it is not bad.
But I have heard mentioned on the radio several times now people going on about achieving things on their bucket list.

Do I have one?.......I can hear you all cry, well sort of although like all good things it is not complete yet, but then I am not sure any bucket list can ever be totally complete as I think it is something you should review all the time, constantly adding to if something new comes along.

What I do have and have had for several years now is a pack of 50 cards which are apparently '50 things everyone must do (at least) once in a lifetime'
It says on the back of the pack the following.......

"Want to know how to make your life complete? This pack contains 50 suggestions, some funny, some obscure, some romantic and some crazy, that will enable you to say that you've really lived life to the full!"

So I will list what the cards say and then if you haven't thought about putting your bucket list together then maybe this will help you start......
  1. Buy everyone in the pub/bar a drink
  2. Swim with wild dolphins
  3. Climb a mountain
