Day's Out, Family Time

Our Family Bucket List 2017

Hooray! Its the weekend and I’ve managed to navigate my way through the first week back at work following a lovely 18 days off with the family over Christmas. Its time to sit down and rather than reflect on what a year 2016 was, look forward to and create Our Family Bucket List 2017.

Whether its the fact as a nation we go into negative mode following the festive season finishing so therefore need something positive to look forward to, many choose to book holidays, many make New Years Resolutions, I meanwhile like to spread my bets and make a list of things we’d love to do this year and work out how we are going to do them along the way.

So below is a list of things as a family we would like to do or achieve for 2017.


Go to a Disneyland Paris (hopefully at Christmas)

Successfully potty train D (Its currently underway – wish us luck)

Go to the cinema more

Take a summer holiday

Go to a Haven Holiday park (H loves the characters)

Attend a Family Festival

Camp (I’d prefer to try Glamping or stay in a lodge/cottage)

Have more Date nights with Mrs F (like “out out”)

Lose some weight (sustainably – and increase exercise)

Visit the beach on a weekend

Complete a photography course

Go fishing with H and my Father in Law

Attend my first blogging conference

Spend more time outdoors than in

Visit a pick you own fruit farm

Go to a concert

Get back into Gaming

Learn how to style D’s hair (rather than a bobble or clip)

Renovate / decorate the ensuite bathroom

Visit a local pottery maker and design our own mugs


There’s a list of 20 for our family bucket list 2017 which I think I’ll stop at as I could go on forever.

Do you make New Years resolutions? Bucket Lists or just take every day as it comes? Let me know in the comments below


Until next time
