Blogtember Day 10: Ten Items On Your Bucket List?

Hi Honeys
We've reached day ten of the Blogtember Challenge and today's prompt is: 10 items off your bucket list. If you haven't made one, now might be a good time to start.
Blogtember Day 10 Bucket List
This is actually the most difficult post so far for me in the blogtember challenge.  I have tried and tried but I just can't think of ten things I passionately want to do.  I even tried looking for bucket lists online and they all seem to mention things I really, really don't want to do, traveling for instance. I have absolutely no wish to travel or see the world. Does that sound awful honeys? 

I promise I'm not an anti social wee beastie :) I actually love being around people, I am positively a people person. OK, a confession, I suffer from terrible anxiety.  I have for many, many years.  It's the reason I still work, even though it started getting very difficult to get through a shift a long time ago.  Going to work is the only time I go out of the house every week unless I have an appointment at the Doctors or at the Rheumatoid Arthritis clinic.  If I were a goldfish, the bowl I live in would be very small, but that's ok. I actually love my job, and it's vital that we all maintain some level of contact with the outside world, so my wee job is incredibly important to me.

So travel isn't on my list.  I love (really really love) music but the only band I'd LOVE to see live I simply can't. So,  unless I can talk the Doctor into lending us the TARDIS, (I'm nuts over The Beatles, and you might have guessed Doctor Who) attending a gig of a lifetime isn't on my list either. 

So honeys, apologies, I really tried and the following five things are the sum and total of my bucket list. Sorry...

1. Home Organization

It is my dearest wish to finally get the entire house so organized that we can walk into a room with our eyes closed and know exactly where everything is :) We're working on it, we really are but we seem to have spent a lifetime collecting stuff and I think it'll take a while.  I do love that Hubby & I are battling the clutter together though :)

2. Learn To Code  

I would love to learn how to code -  but it's more than likely that this one will never happen.  HTML kicks all kind of my butt, I'm still trying though :) I studied for an HND in Law and an MA in History & Philosophy I should be able to master writing my own blog honeys but I'm not holding my breath on this one.

3. Become Fluent In A Foreign Language

I adore European drama. Thanks to BBC4 we've spent a number of years watching fabulous series such as Engrenages (Spiral).  We're currently waiting (not so patiently... do hurry up BBC) for the third series of Broen/Bron (The Bridge) and it depresses me that I don't speak French or Danish or Swedish, all beautiful languages. 

4.  Write A Novel

I would like to actually write finish that book I've been working on for the longest time.  Maybe someday honeys...

5. Live By The Sea

In the day seven's post of the blogtember challenge this week I described my perfect dream home.  It's where my blog's name, Rosie's Cottage, comes from.  We have a beautiful canvas that hangs in our master bedroom I spend so long staring at honeys.
Heaven Is By The Sea

It calms me, I stare at it and picture myself walking down the sandy steps and sitting on the beach and listening to the waves.  Someday, someday I'd love to live by the sea.

So, there it is honeys.  My little mini bucket isn't exciting or grand but maybe that's because I really do have everything I could possibly need to be happy :) I'm married to my very best friend, he makes me happier than anyone ever has a right to be. After all these years he can still make my heart skip with a smile.  We have our furbaby Jade who is such a joy and we have our little home that's stuffed to the chimney with love and hugs :) I hope you all find as much happiness as we've been blessed with. Till next time dear ones, hugs always xx


  1. It's lovely that you have everything you need to be happy. You have bigger riches than a billionaire, so don't be ashamed of your little bucket list. xx

    1. Aw thank you Leah It's not money or stuff that makes us happy honey (not that I'd know lol) it's being loved, feeling safe, being happy with what you have. Sending you heaps of hugs angel xxx

  2. the learning code thing!!! the other day i was like… um i would LOVE to be able to design wordpress themes!!! i tried to learn code for like 10 minutes and shut my computer and walked away haha. it's so hard!

    1. Stephanie, thank you!! x I thought it was just me! everyone I talk to is so matter of fact about tech these days and I just thought well it's must be me, maybe my brain just panics when it sees code, and maybe it does :) It's such a relief though to know I'm not alone :) Bless you angel for making me feel better :) Thank you for visiting, huggles always xx

  3. I second the code thing! I even bought a book but it truly makes my mind spin!

    1. yaaaay!! I'm not alone after all :) Thank you Paula, you don't know what this means to me! I've been blogging for just over a year & half now and I really did feel like it was just me who was having difficulties :) Anyone who can write code is a hero to me :) I absolutely love your bucket list post, it's fabulous! Thank you so much for visiting, so made me smile! hugs always xx
