Bucket lists are supposed to be for ticking things off, as you get to do them, right? Well it seemed to me this year that as I grow older, my list seems to be getting longer. I mean the more I think about it, the more things I find I want to do. This year was a major birthday for me, so I took stock of all the things I haven’t achieved at this age *cough 40 cough* and I am still trying to figure out how to go about achieving them, this is not going too well, but I am hopeful. One of the things on my bucket list was to travel in an airplane. Now I know all you seasoned frequent- flyer -mile –type- people are probably rolling your eyes and thinking, what’s the big deal?, but I haven’t had the opportunity to fly, anywhere, ever! So it is a big deal for me. I spent the first 22yrs of my adult life being a mom, going to work and coming home to domesticated things. Yes we did have the odd vacation, but mostly we went somewhere local.
Well one of my bucket list items are about to be ticked off!!!! As I type this I can feel butterflies in my tummy from excitement. For my 40th birthday my boyfriend offered me plane tickets, and I just had to let him know when and where I wanted to go. Last month I won a competition on Bob Skinstad’s show on 2Oceans Vibe radio and it gave us free accommodation and meals at the fabulous Lethabo estate. So tomorrow morning we fly up to JHB to see some of our twitter friends and on Sunday we head to Lanseria to stay at Lethabo Estate until Tuesday.
To say that I am beyond excited is an understatement!!!! Someone posted this picture on twitter yesterday and it perfectly depicts how I am feeling right now.
Bucket list item number 1 *tick*
