My Winter Bucket List Revisited 2019-2020! â„️…🌦️

Hello guys!

I was going about my day on the 1st of March and then a question hit me: When does Winter end? 🤔 I googled it and when the 20th of March shined back in my face I had a half mood. One side of me was happy to see the back of the tumultuous rainy season and the other spiralled into a mini meltdown at the fact that I had for the most part forgotten about my Winter Bucket List.

There was a time when the weather was affecting my mood and then more recently I’ve come to realize just how much it all brings on painful flare-ups in my legs 😖 so I honestly can’t wait to see a full on end to it but until then I’m saying goodbye to the idea of it first 😂 Here is what I had to work with and how I did 😬:

Go to a Christmas market

I went to the Wild Lights at Dublin Zoo and there was a Christmas market there that I had a nosy around. It was full of little wooden Santa’s and festive trinkets and really got me in the mood for the big day (this was the day before I realized I had the flu so being out in the cold didn’t help but I was none the wiser at the time 😂). Nothing stood out for me so aside from purchasing a few items in the Dublin Zoo merch store I left empty handed (cause I stuffed what I got in my bag instead! 😂).

Try/do new things + make memories

Snippets of memories are floating through my mind right now 😍 Many are of a festive theme 🎄 When I was well in Winter I visited new places, had fun with friends, family and met new people (especially through joining a creative writers group). I got out of my comfort zone and took time to notice that I had done so which felt INCREDIBLE 💫 In this time I was told about a ukulele group that I might be joining too (despite not playing in ages!) which should be heaps of fun if I can bring myself to go 🎶 (my comfort zone is closing in on me again 😂).

Tidy my room (for real this time!)

I made a great start but then things started to happen and I let it fall apart 😒 I’m getting to a better place so I know that accomplishing this goal isn’t far off though.

See a pantomime/theatre play

Ahhh well…This idea went in one ear and out the other 🙈 I have a couple of events coming up that are along the lines of going to a theatre and I might even book to see a play, who knows? I tend to leave things till last minute so least of all me right now 😂🎭

Watch a load of festive movies

I went a bit over the top with this, whatever spare time I had in the lead up to Christmas was spent watching the Xmas TV channel. There was one film that I really enjoyed but I can’t remember it’s name, it was about this guy who’s son wished Christmas day would start over as it went wrong so the dad was forced to live through it on repeat until he got it right. PLEASE tell me the name if you know it! Twas very funny. It had your average plot but was an easy-going watch and I’m glad I caught it from beginning to end! 🍿

Paint the upstairs bathroom

Eh nope. I got the little tester paint pots but I don’t want to do it anymore 🙃😂

Stay warm

I did and still am as the weather is a bit mad. It’s become more important than ever since discovering how much of an effect it all has on me health wise. I’ve made a huge effort to keep warm and have taken to wearing fluffy thermal socks when I sleep so that most nights are pain free 😄

Thank YOU for reading! 😉 Considering I forgot about these goals I’m surprised with how well I did 😂 Did you have anything you wanted to get done in Winter? (or whatever the finished season where you are is). Let me know in the comments below and I hope you have a super lovely day! ❤️

  1. I would wish to have seen snow during Winter. Now, it’s already Spring but it’s still cold. At least the sun is shining more 🌞 You did a lot, well done! I wish to know the title of that movie. Sounds great!
