Monthly Bucket List: November 2017

Monthly Bucket List: November 2017

I first saw the Monthly Bucket List linky on Alana from Burnished Chaos‘s blog a few months ago and I’ve been meaning to join in since. It’s hosted once a month by Beth from Twinderelmo and this is my first attempt… here goes nothing!



  • Go to our local Bonfire Night celebrations with friends. Max loved it last year so fingers crossed the weather will hold out for us to go again this week.
  • Decide on, buy and wrap the boys’ Christmas presents so I don’t need to stress wrap on Christmas Eve as usual.
  • Get out for family walks as much as possible, and bring my camera!



  • Gut the boys’ room. I need to go through their old toys – it’s been too long and their room is a mess!
  • Get someone in to clean the carpets. Two boys, two cats and a dog equals carpets that are in need of some love.
  • Organise the kitchen cupboards. I went into Home Bargains this week and bought a ton of storage boxes to help with this.


  • Schedule blog posts at least a week if not two in advance.
  • Write and publish a Work With Me page. I’ve been putting this off for too long.
  • Earn something from sponsored posts. Two if possible. #PRRequest right here!


  • Stick to an earlier bedtime, 10-11pm at the latest. I’ve been doing this for about a week now and it’s making a huge difference in my energy levels.
  • Keep on top of my uni studying by making Mondays and Tuesdays study days.
  • Cook more meals from scratch. I’d been slacking on this one and again over the last week have been cooking more again. I’d forgotten how much I enjoyed it.


So that’s it! Let’s see how much I manage to tick off this list by the end of the month!

    Thanks for the mention lovely, glad you decided to join in. You’ve got some great goals here. I put off doing my work with me page for soooo long but once I finally did it, it was like a huge weight being lifted. Have a great time at the fireworks this weekend x
