The bucket list – life is just too short. 

I must sit down about four times a week and think the thing that everyone thinks. Fuck it, you literally only live once – what the hell am I doing? 

I have to remind myself that I’ve got a good life – but that doesn’t mean it couldn’t be better. So, whilst on holiday, enjoying a fag in a treetop cafe, me and Beaumont decided to put a list together. 

One of the best things about our relationship is that we encourage each other to do the shit that we want to do but wouldn’t have done in the past… i.e. Road trip across Europe Or gliding…Or bike riding around Dijon…Or visiting sites we’ve always wanted to see…Or taking time for ourselves and going on girly holidays… Or looking at the stars, watching fireworks and stopping to appreciate the art and culture around us…Visiting old places and doing new things… Or visiting new places and doing old things… Going on holidays to new places with family, eating Christmas dinner in the park or climbing trees… Or para-sailing…

The thing is, we’re pretty good at living. But not good enough. Life’s to short for a half arsed approach. And, let’s face it, you get to a certain age and you just don’t give a shit about being out of your comfort zone. In fact it’s fun and makes you laugh hard! And that’s what I want to do. I want to spend my life laughing. 

So here’s the list – and I’m going to be blogging about each and every experience as they happen. We’ve set a goal of achieving at least one a month… with or without each other, and we’ll be roping friends and family in too…  here goes!
