Bucket lists

 My life seems to have become a bit of a social whirl recently but I'm making the most of it because I'm very sure there are weeks to come without much in the diary at all.

Today I met friends for lunch, had a lovely time and talked bucket lists.  What sort of thing did people in general  have on their bucket lists, what did we have on our own particular bucket lists and what were the chances of completing those lists?

When you live alongside dementia bucket lists can be tricky, especially if you follow the advice of those who tell you to live in the moment and not think about the future.  My view, as you know, is that if I don't have a plan for the future then I'm in danger of losing myself so of course I have a bucket list and I make sure that everything on there is achievable.  

If you know me then you'll know that my bucket list is totally related to travel.  There are so many places I still want to see; some new, some I've already been to with Ash, some I haven't visited for a very long time, but here's the thing, they're all places I know I could go to on my own.  None of them are scary and none will take me out of my comfort zone, it's not that sort of bucket list, but I add to it on a regular basis and it gives me something to look forward to.

So what I want to know is, do you have a bucket list and if you do what sort of thing is on there?

Funny, just tonight we were watching t.v. and there was a commercial about planting trees by the Arborday Foundation. It showed all sorts of places where trees were being planted. Robert sat there and said, "If I was better, and we had a motorhome, I'd like to go to some of those places." Sad that he realized he wouldn't be able to travel to those places. I don't have a bucket list other than moving to a smaller home and I expect that to be achieved within the next 6 months. That said, I said the same thing in March of this year and here I am...still waiting.

At least Robert showed an interest in it all, Ash has no interest in doing anything at all unless it's to go to a garden centre for a cup of tea and I'm really not old enough for that.
