  7. It’s so good that you wrote the things down that are on your bucket list. Looks like you’ve got a lot of interesting things planned. Best of luck! I have had fun exploring your blog – love the post about the Queen visiting your workplace!

      Thank you! I definitely think it helps to have them written down as a reminder.

      The Queen’s visit was quite exciting. We got to put our names in a draw to meet her but I didn’t get chosen. I was annoyed that there was confusion about whether we could take cameras – we could and I would have got some great photographs but I was told we couldn’t take them. 😦 Oh well!

    I enjoyed reading your Bucket List, you have a lot of adventure ahead of you. You didn’t miss much this year, but when you are ready for your fall in New England, I can help point you in the right direction for spectacular views. In New Hampshire anyway.
