Monthly Bucket List – May

Last month we wrote our first Monthly Bucket List – a blog link-up hosted by Twinderelmo.


So, how did we do in April?

Increase readers, followers & pageviews – We’ve had our best month yet. Tick!

Join Tots 100, Bloglovin, Mumsnet and Daddy blog networks – We did these. And even wrote an article for BritMums. Tick!

Get more organised with blogging – We’ve managed to plan our posts better, and spend planned time together blogging. Need  to work on Buffering our social media. Half a tick.

Have at least three date nights together (out of the house!) – We went out for cocktails, had dinner together at a restaurant, and went to IKEA with no kids (that counts, right?). Plus we started blogging about Date Night. Big tick!

Have a party – No tick.

Decorate our conservatory / dining room – Nailed it! Check out the revamp here. Tick!

For Adam to find new clients and jobs – There are few things in the offing. Time will tell on this one.

Explore more of Cheshire – Not really. No tick.

Have new friends round for dinner – We had a few people around for dinner. More to come this month. Tick.

I’d call that a modest success. Here’s our list for May:

Have a birthday party! – I will be 27. We should have a party.

Go to (and blog about) Geronimo festival – We won free tickets! Super excited. You can find out about the festival here.

Hopefully get a sponsor for BritMums live – Sarah really wants to go. Any ideas?

Plan in quality time together – May is going to be a busy month. We have a stag do, a wedding, a couple of birthdays, friends, kids, church, planning, a business, and a load of other stuff. We’ll be keeping up our Date Night posts.

Attend Good For Nothing Chester’s 24-hour hack – I realise this sentence looks like nonsense. Read about it here.

Get a nice photograph of our family – Much more difficult than it ought to be.

Keep fit – We’re both trying to stick to the ‘Couch to 5K’ running app. Sarah’s also totally out-doing me by going to the gym twice a week. I need to up my game.

And obviously we’ll continue with some from April’s list, like getting more organised with blogging, increasing our followers (particularly on Facebook on Pinterest), and having Date Night together. What do you guys all have planned for May?

      Thanks so much. We can’t take credit for the Bucket List idea, but it’s a great way to order your thoughts and goals for the month.

      Thanks for reading! We are definitely not as organised as we’d like to be.

      Things are looking hopeful on the BritMums Live sponsor front. But that’s another post for another time.
