The After Lockdown Bucket List

I never thought I'd be writing one of these, I had Spring and Summer bucket lists planned but with everything up in the air and us all staying home they've firmly been put on the backburner so a little twist on the original will do. To be honest, this is now the one I'm most excited about because it's full of all the special things I can't wait to do once this strange period of time is over. 

It's full of family, friends and new adventures - the start of 2020 may be a washout but there's still time to turn it around or at least I hope there is as long as we all stay home and comply with social distancing.

Although at this rate we might be going from Christmas, New Year, Lockdown and back to Christmas!

2. Set up play dates with our favourite toddler friends
3. Spend an evening with my best friend drinking cocktails under the setting sun
