Bucket List


A bucket list is a list of things that I want to do before I die... (or "kick the bucket" - where the phrase came from)


This list of items will grow over time and once I have checked something off, I will write a blog post documenting the activity.


There are things on this list that I have done already- so there will be a few 'retro' blog posts coming to the site soon to explain them
