My Summer Bucket List!

Hi everyone! How are you all on this overly sunny summers day? Don’t worry it’ll be Christmas soon πŸ˜‚ (I can’t be the only one thinking that?..halfway through the year so why not? πŸ˜‚). I’ve been thinking about what I would like to do this summer before I go on holiday in August to England as when I get back, summer will surely be a distant memory πŸ˜‚ This post is for Lee’s Summer Party Playlist Project which you can take part in too if you want at the link by either sending Lee a summer themed post (there are suggestions on her page) or publishing a new post (like this bucket list) with a link to her blog saying you are doing it! So here are the things I want to do this summer! 

Go to the beach more than once! 

I live close to a couple of beaches but hardly ever go there πŸ™ˆ. I can’t even remember the last time I went πŸ€” I was supposed to go last month but I don’t think I felt well. Actually the last time I went was probably last August in Brighton!! I’ve got to pay my respect to Irish beaches! πŸ˜‚ I wanted my mum to come but in reality I know that the sun and heat is too dangerous for her as it is so why would we risk the beach? And I can’t walk barefoot on the beach 😬 because of my Raynaud’s it oddly resembles walking on fire! πŸ˜‚ but it won’t put me off going! πŸ˜‚ The sound of the ocean and and the soft sand..I’m grinning at the thought! 

Take more selfies πŸ˜—πŸ˜™πŸ˜

The few pictures I randomly post of myself on my blog are the majority I have! πŸ˜‚ I don’t know why I don’t take pictures of myself. When I’m older I know I will want some to look back on and I know that what will start me taking them is when they correspond to a memory….so I better start making some memories! πŸ˜‚ Or else I’ll forget myself as I can’t even picture my family’s faces in my mind when I’m not around them let alone my own πŸ˜¬πŸ˜‚.

Go in the garden and for walks up the road!

What I love most about living in the Irish countryside is the greenness (not a word?! πŸ˜‚) of it all! Every other green seems fake in comparison πŸ˜‚ everywhere you look is a picture waiting to be taken, it is so peaceful and surreal. I need to take advantage of the fresh air when I’m well and able!

Get out and do stuff!

There is not much here in terms of festivals/events and I would probably be too nervous to go anyway πŸ˜‚ but if something comes along that I am interested in, I should just go. This includes shops, cafes, cinema trips. Even if I don’t buy anything, it’s good to get out (the house is like a furnace πŸ˜¬πŸ˜‚). My friend is back from college (which is 4 hours away on the other side of ireland!) So I know for sure I will meet up with her allot! (Today we are going to the cinema to see The Mummy!).

Make a vision board!

I’ve wanted to make a vision board for a very long time but haven’t because I didn’t want to ruin my magazines! But everything in them is long gone from the shops now πŸ˜‚ I found a piece of card that folds over like a photo album so I’m planning on doing it soon! I might even embarrass myself and do a post on it πŸ˜¬πŸ˜‚.

Have a picnic! 🍝(Pasta at a picnic sounds like a living dream πŸ˜πŸ˜‚).

A proper one with a wicker basket and a blanket (not a towel! πŸ™„πŸ˜‚) With lemonade and healthy homemade stuff I’ll eat because it looks pretty on the occasion πŸ˜‚ no sandwiches though. I’ve had my fare share of sand filled sandwiches (suppose it’s karma with the name πŸ˜‚). 

Get my ears pierced….again! πŸ˜‚

I got my ears pierced when I was around eight but never really wore studs in them πŸ™„ so last year I realized one has closed up. On the day I got them done I remember that the lady used the gun to shoot my left ear and I got up and went to walk off thinking she was done…she hadn’t even done my right ear and I was at the door πŸ˜‘ (don’t mind me I’m just grimacing with embarrassment! πŸ˜«πŸ˜‚) it wasn’t even painful so I don’t get why I thought that one shot had magically gone through my head to my other ear πŸ™ˆ. I’m not too fussed about getting them done again but if I do I will know it was on this list! πŸ˜‚

Go to a car boot sale! 

We used to go to one near our house allot (it is held every Sunday) so I might go again as you never know what’s there! I used to come away with handfuls of books for a fiver πŸ˜΅πŸ˜‚ half the time the stuff could be bought cheaper brand new πŸ™„ but you don’t know that when you’re there do you? As people can be crafty. I once got 2 PS2 games and I was talked into it as I find it incredibly difficult to say no to a deal (“it was not a deal!” I want to shout at younger me! πŸ˜‚)…as you can probably guess, the games didn’t bloody work 😳 I was in a state of shock πŸ˜‚. The last few times I went I didn’t buy anything (that was when I started getting smart with my money! πŸ˜‚) But whenever we drive past the area the sale is held on a Sunday I always wonder what’s on the tables πŸ˜‚ so hopefully I’ll go to one.

Thank you for reading! πŸ˜‰πŸ’— I will revisit this post at the end of the summer and see if I actually did any of this stuff! πŸ˜‚ What is on your summer bucket list? Have a lovely day!
