    This is one of the places I have always wanted to visit as it reminds me of the fairy tales that I used to read when I was a child.

    I think it would be nice to look out from the top of a light house across the sea.  There are many in the UK which I could visit. Some light houses are listed at this website: Read More

    There will be so many people in my children's lives that I want them to experience a bond with them right from the start. However, since I am now pregnant and have gestational diabetes this one will be harder to do as I have been told th...

    An extended family who are all close to each other is my aim.  As I am having my first child in November I will consider this goal accomplished, although I do want to keep adding to my family, having at least 3 children.

    So I finally made it to one of my graduation ceremonies! In fact I am really happy that I did as it helped bring home the idea of how much I have accomplished over the last few years.  Normally, as soon as I accomplish something it goes ...

    I went to a really nice Thai restaurant and loved it.  It is not something Ii would usually try so I am glad that I was able to step out of my comfort zone and have something new.

    I go to London a lot but don't do any of the touristy things.  Just once I would like to look around the Tower of London and Buckingham Palace.  Maybe ride the London Eye. Things I did/saw in London to complete this goal: Tower of Londo...

    I am living by myself for the first time in my life.  I am glad I get to experience this before moving in with my boyfriend in London again.

    I worked at Leeds Festival in 2013.  It was a good experience.  I was also able to conquer my fear of heights by climbing up a rickety fire tower which was a nice added bonus.  I even got to put out some fires.  I got to watch all the he...

    I think I tried the apple flavour.  It didn't do anything for me to be honest although the friend I went with thought it was relaxing.
  • Apr 23, 2013

    I saw a rainbow on a really clear, sunny day that stretched from one side of the horizon to the other.  The setting was beautiful.  It was as I was setting up for a music festival and there was a poppy field in the background.  It was su...

    I am surprised that I actually liked this and I would eat it again.  I went to an 'all you can eat' buffet with my mum and brother for my mum's birthday and there was a chance to try foods from different countries in the world.  I also t...

    I went in 2012 when they were in London.  I didn't see much but had fun watching it on the big screens in Hyde Park.  I did end up watching England play in a sitting volleyball match at the Paralympics which was a good experience.

    I can't really do this until after I kick the bucket but I have signed up and let all my family know what I would like to happen to me.

    I have made these from scratch and they are so tasty.  I really recommend this one!
  • Dec 30, 2011

    I went to a friends parents hotel somewhere just North of the border.  It was a proper Scottish town and had people in traditional Scottish dress.  The best bit was when everyone got in a circle and did Auld Lang Syne at midnight.
  • Nov 5, 2011

    I made my boyfriend and iced jam sponge cake.  He only had one slice and I think I ate the rest! I have made loads of birthday cakes for the children I have cared for in the past - some good, some could have been better.
  • Sep 13, 2011

    There were some great wine bars around the cities we visited.  Loved the local wine.  My favourite was Prosecco, a sparkling white wine.
  • Sep 9, 2011

    I travelled to Italy in 2010 or 2011 with my boyfriend.  We went to Venice, Vicenza and Verona.  This was a childhood dream.  I would love to go back again.
  • Apr 20, 2011

    There was a great atmosphere.  It was an excuse to have a few beers in the sun before midday lol.  I loved cheering on randomers with their names on their shirts.  Great fun.
  • Feb 14, 2011

    I went to the top.  It was seriously windy.  I saw this at night and during the day and got pictures and views of it from every conceivable angle lol (my boyfriend's idea).
  • Feb 14, 2011

    It was such a cool place and so big that I didn't get to see half of it.  The only thing about the Mona Lisa is that it was packed.  There were lots of quieter areas.  I liked the sculpture section a lot.  It was worth a visit and I will...

    Another cool French trip.  The house and the gardens were nice and it was worth a look around.  It was something I had wanted to do ever since I started French in high school.
  • Feb 9, 2011

    I spent about a week here and went to Orleans, around the Loire valley and to Paris.
  • Aug 12, 2010

    I have hosted people on my couch and surfed on other people's couches.  They were all good experiences.  The first time I surfed someones couch was in Ireland with my boyfriend.
  • Aug 12, 2010

    There was so much free Guiness.  It was great.  I had never tried Guiness until going here but I loved it.  The view from the viewing room at the top was great, if a bit crowded.
  • Aug 12, 2010

    We stayed in Dublin and also went to the nearby countryside of County Wicklow.  Everyone was so friendly.  I would like to live in Ireland at some point, especially as I have Irish family.
  • Aug 12, 2010

    This was my favourite type of whisky for a long time.  There was even a tasting session at the end to see if I could taste the difference between Jamesons, Scotch and Jack Daniels.  I got a certificate :)

    After missing a plane from Ireland, me and my boyfriend had to get a ferry home.  It was like another mini holiday.  I loved watching the sea in the dark.  We even got free meals.  I did only get about 3 hours sleep though and I had to d...
  • Aug 12, 2010

    We did this in Ireland.  It was one of those experiences which I consider a test of character.  We were stranded in Dublin after missing the last bus, which made us miss our plane home.
  • Apr 30, 2010

    This was a humbling experience.  The children's museum was horrible, especially seeing things like all the shoes in a massive pile.  We got to go inside the gas chamber.  It was so eerie and made me feel really sad.  I think it is good t...

    I loved Poland.  I stayed in Krakow and it has been one of my best city trips so far.  It had some lovely inexpensive restaurants and a good nightlife, as well as beautiful buildings and culture.  I would love to learn the language altho...
  • Mar 31, 2010

    I did this is 2010.  I really disliked my manager and the owner.  I learnt a lot there but was so glad to leave and move on.  I have quit a lot of jobs.  I've had about 12 so far.
  • Mar 31, 2010

    I also visited the stones at Avebury.  It was cool to see Stonehenge but it wasn't as magical as I expected it to be.  I enjoyed Avebury much more as you can walk right next to them and they are spread out around a little village.
  • Mar 10, 2010

    I can't remember exactly when I completed this goal but it was during a very small punk gig at my local pub.  There were lots of malt whiskeys and I remember finishing at least one of the bottles behind the bar off.  Yes, it was straight...
  • Nov 4, 2009

    Me and my boyfriend went to Edinburgh for his birthday and we went to the whiskey distillery.  It was awesome and at the end you got a selection of four whiskeys each to try.  I was so drunk afterwards because it was my first time drinki...

    I only did this for the first time when I started working at a nursery.  It was a lot of fun and very messy.  Plus you stink of pumpkin for the rest of the day! The first time I made one the top kept falling in because I didn't know you ...

    I did this in 2009 when I was 24.  It's a poppy in colour on my wrist/inner arm.  I will try and upload a picture if I can figure out how to work it.  My tattoo is to remember a time in my life that I don't want to forget.
  • Jun 5, 2007

    I was at the birth of a friend's eldest daughter.  It was one of the most amazing experiences ever.  I was at the hospital for about 54 hours with very little sleep but it was worth it to be the third person to hold the newborn baby. 
  • Aug 9, 2006

    I went to Portimao on a family holiday.  It was a nice place in the Algarve.  I would like to explore more around this area because it was so beautiful.
  • Aug 14, 2005

    I spent a few days in Amsterdam.  It is a really laid back city and I liked it because of this.  Me and my friends enjoyed exploring the red light district and going into some of the coffee shops.  We even went to a sex show lol.  During...
  • Aug 14, 2005

    This was so funny.  It was something I will always remember but I won't be doing it again.  We met some really nice people in Amsterdam.
  • Aug 14, 2005

    Me and my friends took a trip to Amsterdam on a complete whim.  Me and one of my friends were sat in the pub and we decided to ring another friend who was in work and just go.  It was fantastic.  We loved every minute of it.
  • Oct 14, 2002

    I have successfully grown potatoes before with a group of nursery children but I want to do this again for myself.  Courgettes, beans and tomatoes are easy to grow.  Strawberries are also easy if I want to stretch to fruit. Ideas for ve...

    This was a crazy time in my life.  My first taste of freedom.  I have a lot of memories from this time, some great ones and some that make me wince in embarrasment to think of them.  I will probably never do this again so I'm glad I did ...

    They have loads of these in Greece and I drank them on quite a few occasions.  I think I even downed one without stopping.  I'm not sure I would want to do that now!
  • Aug 30, 2002

    I did this in Greece on a girls holiday when I was 17.  It was raining really hard and the pool area was empty apart from me and my friends which was awesome.
  • Apr 30, 2002

    It was a shotgun I think, which belonged to a farmer.  I hit the target!
  • Mar 31, 2002

    I have been to the lovely islands of Corfu and Zakynthos.  They were really great experiences both times.  I would like to go on a tour of more islands and visit some of the mainland cities, especially Athens, in the future.
  • Jul 31, 1999

    This was a big one for me as I was so scared of spiders growing up.  At the zoo, when I was bout 14, I decided to hold one so that I could conqeur my fear.  It stopped on my hand for ages but when it was over I felt a great sense of reli...
