Monthly bucket list February
I loved the idea of this linky when I saw it over on Twinderelmo’s and knew I had to join in so here’s my monthly bucket list February 🙂
Monthly Bucket List – February
1) Take the girls out for a nice walk somewhere during half term
Aiden will be at his dad’s and the girls usually go as well but now they’re getting older they’re wanting to spend more time at home.
We went out at the weekend but the weather turned awful just as we got to our destination and we ended up coming home straight away.
*EDIT We didn’t manage this so we’ll try again in March!
2) Completely blitz our bedroom.
It’s a mess and it’s doing my head in. I need to clear out under the bed and sort it all out. I don’t even know what’s under there, only that it’s packed with stuff that I’m sure doesn’t need to be there!
*EDIT Feb 6th – I did it! Our room is lovely and tidy now and under the bed is completely empty!*
3) Get the girls cooking more often.
They love to cook and they used to help out regularly in the kitchen but just lately I’ve been telling them that ‘I just want to get on and get it done’ when they ask if they can help and I’m not going to do that anymore 🙂
*EDIT Ella’s been a cooking a bit more and Kaycee’s made some lovely cakes 🙂
4) Make a lovely dinner for the husband on Valentine’s Day
We’re not buying each other presents this year as we’re planning a week away at the end of April for our 10th wedding anniversary so we’re saving our money for that but I do like to celebrate Valentine’s day so a nice dinner together with no kids (they’re going on the Harry Potter Studio Tour with their sister and her boyfriend) will be lovely!
*EDIT We ended up having a takeaway with the kids because we forgot they were home that weekend! It was still lovely 🙂
5) Finish my book.
I’ve just started reading 50 Shades of Grey (yes, I know I’m very late to the party!) and I want to finish it before the end of the month because the last book I read took nearly two months. I set myself a challenge to read 100 books for my Day Zero Project and if I don’t speed up, I’m never going to make it!
*EDIT I didn’t finish it, in fact, I got bored of it halfway through and started a different book!
6) Start thinking about our family holiday for this year. We didn’t have one last year because we moved to this house and had to spend all our spare money to get it how we wanted it.
Hopefully, we’ll be able to get away somewhere nice in the October half term and I’ll be checking out Tots Too to see if anything takes our fancy 🙂
*EDIT The kids want to go Butlins again but the adults aren’t too keen so we need to find somewhere we’ll all enjoy.
