Monthly Bucket List - March / April

This is my first monthly bucket list, here is a list of the things I hope to achieve next month. 

Things i have planned for April so far;

* My dear friends wedding in Birmingham, which will involve a well deserved night away with my better half WITHOUT the children whooo hooo. wheres the wine?! 
My aim is not to get drunk on one glass of wine or be the drunkest person at the party. 

* Moving Day, this has to be completed in a time frame of 2 days. Not negotiable. 
I hope to do this without too much stress (who am I kidding) or breakables.

* Easter Egg Hunt, the children's annual Easter egg hunt around the park, 
my town is very community active, it's more of a social get together for us mums. 

* My Granddad's funeral, I'm not a fan of funerals anyway, I don't suppose anyone really is, but i've been in denial since he passed away so I think it will all feel more real after this day. 
My aim is to try and not say the wrong thing at the wrong time, as I do this allot. 

* After all of the above, it's my nieces 2nd birthday, I cant wait to spoil her and have a day out at Cantref Farm and put the stressful few weeks behind me. 
It would be rude to not go on the water slide too (big kid) and eat lots of cake. 

My personal aim's;

* To finishing reading 'The book of you' which I shamefully started in February. I used to read at least a book a month but i've been useless lately. I really enjoy this book to. 

* I want to lose a stone but I know, for me a month is unrealistic, as I'm physically unable to eat healthy. so I will be more realistic and aim for 5lb. anything more and ill be happy anything less ill be disappointed!! I hope to go to 2 exercise classes a week instead of my usual one. 

* To get organized with my blogging. at the moment I'm grabbing a few moments here and there when I can, I'm failing deadlines and I don't feel I'm putting 100% into it. 
I need a kick up the bum.

* To keep up with 'Ordinary Lies' series after watching my first one last week, I really enjoyed it and would love to stick at a program again, since I had my son i've not really got into anything. 
As sleep deprivation is life consuming! 

* Save and do not spend! My spending habits have got a bit out of control recently so this month I intend to rain this in. I will find this extremly difficult. 

The kid's 

* I hope to get my son into a proper sleep routine with no night time waking (this would be so amazing) and two good naps. I don't have any confidence in this one happening. 

* Settling them both into the new house. It can be a big thing for kids and I don't want them to be too disturbed by it all. 

* Spend more time out, taking walks, visiting the park and feeding the ducks. 
This is weather dependant, them ducks can starve if it's raining! 

I think I will need allot of luck for this month, I'm thinking April will be a bit chaotic.
