  1. Hi Mrs Thrifty, I have never thought of writing a bucket list. You now have me thinking what I would put on it. As we are approaching yet another christmas maybe this is something I should give some real thought to and add to my blog in the new year.


Thank you for commenting - I do enjoy reading them xx
