Back in January I wrote my A to Z of things to achieve in 2017. Seeing as though we are halfway through August, I thought it was time to update you on my progress.
Discover a new place to have afternoon tea – I am booked in for afternoon tea in September, so this will get ticked off next month.
Hire a beach hut – In June I got to spend the day in a beach hut in Lytham St Annes.
Visit a new city – Bath was our ‘new city’ and what a wonderful 4 day break we had back in February.
Go to Edinburgh – Another placed ticked off the ‘travel list’ as we headed to Edinburgh for the very first time at the start of the summer holidays.
Meet up with blogging friends – I met up with some blogging friends at Blog On in Manchester back in May.
Be brave and go in the gym at David Lloyd
Be sat in a hot tub on Christmas Day or New Years Eve
Eat ice cream on the beach – Despite going to Greece twice this year, still no ice cream on the beach
Go to Jodrell Bank
Sort my kitchen cupboards out – STILL on the never ending list of house jobs.
See London at Christmas time
Buy a new mattress for Katie’s bed – Both Katie and Morgan got new mattresses for their beds a few months ago.
Go to Northumberland in the summer – We are heading to Slaley Hall in Northumberland at the end of the summer holidays, so another thing to tick off.
Carve a pumpkin in October
Paint my nails – Does it count if I paid somebody else to paint them ?
Visit the Queen
Go to Ribby Hall for a spa day
Buy a new sofa
Take the train to a new place – We took the train to Edinburgh which was a new place for us as a family. And travelling back First Class was fantastic.
Kiss under the stars
Venture outside with the kids more often – Hmmmm not sure if we have achieved this, but the kids are definitely going outside more with their friends.
Wear a pretty dress – Not sure if this counts as a pretty dress which I wore in Sani Dunes in Greece.
Avoid watching the X factor
Find a yellow submarine – If there is one place where you are guaranteed to find a yellow submarine, it has to be Liverpool.
Go to the Zoo – We have actually been to the zoo twice this year. Once to check out the animals, and again to review the new Madagascar play area at Chester Zoo.
So a fair few ticked off the list, but still lots to keep me busy for the rest of the year. I will of course update at the end of December to see whether I managed to achieve my A to Z list for 2017.
