Making memories of me

01 Oct

As you may know, my memories are very important to me. I love photos, I love looking back on my past and I love my lists lol. I have my happy book to document the things that make me smile and I have a bucket list of things to tick off as I go.

Working in the job and being married to my husband has taught me to never let anything hold me back. To enjoy life, to experience it… Because I can… And because I deserve to.

With our move growing ever closer I’m getting sentimental, thinking of the times I’ve had… With the people I’ve met… In the places I’ve been…

So it seems quite fitting to add to my bucket list… But I need your help.

I’m not talking about lavish, expensive things… More the simple things like enjoying cadburys chocolate before giving into the world of Hershey’s *shudder* or milking a cow … Because why wouldn’t you when your best friend lives on a farm?? Or screw the weather lets go punting in cambridge… Because it’s almost local so why not? Of course I have Madame Tussaud’s (the waxworks) on mine because let’s face it it’s the only way I’m going to meet my boyband crush before I go so it kills 2 birds with one stone… But what would you do?

I have 2 months left in England… Brits…what would you suggest I do?
The rest of the world… What would you want to do if you visited England?

Likewise I’m going to be limited to (probably) one year in North Carolina before moving to the next place so Non Americans…. What would be the little things you would want to experience/taste/see that we can’t do here? Or the bigger things you would love to do if you had the chance to go? And Americans… What would you suggest? I’ve heard about “trees” … Everyone keeps gasping about how beautiful the trees are…. I’m lost lol. So what is there around NC – or in America in General- to look out for and experience?

I WILL be taking up blogging again once things are more settled – hopefully by then I will have some bucket list “ticks” to share with you 🙂

So… If you don’t mind… I would love to have a few ideas (the more the better) from each of you of things to do on each side of the pond.

    Nice to see you back…
    As a Londoner, of course I would say…Tower Bridge, lit at night, that wonderful edifice. And the view from Waterloo Bridge at dusk, London from the River. Doubt there is anything like that in North Carolina. (Give Tussaud’s a miss. Not worth it)
    In America? i have never been. I would like to see Charleston, but that is in South Carolina. Maybe the heyday of the Confederacy, Plantation Houses, large wraparound porches, lush vegetation, we don’t have that here.
    English seaside. It’s different over there. Somewhere kitsch and quaint. Buckets and spades, shellfish, shelters from the wind.
    Lap it up B, but don’t despair. You are young enough to come back, and see it all again one day.
    As ever. Pete. XX

    If i were to go back to England I would first take in a lungfull of the London particular. Nothing like that dense fog to get the days started right before hunting down a pub. 🙂

      Ha ha London scares me – which is I think why I haven’t been to Madame Tussaud’s yet – but we have to go there in the next few weeks for legal rubbish anyway so may as we’ll make a day of it 🙂

    I love wax museums…where else can you take a picture with Bond, James Bond…or Dracula? As for NC…Ashville. Washington DC is nearby with the Smithsonian…in the US…OMG, the Grand Canyon, Las Vegas, New York, San Francisco, California in general, the Rocky Mtns, and, and, and…Safe Travels and have fun!

    I looked up that Biltmore House, it’s like a French Chateau, very imposing! As for London Fog, I haven’t seen any since the late 1960’s, and I lived in the centre. Don’t be scared of the capital B, it is easier to manage than you might think. Tips available from me by e mail!
    As ever, Pete. XX
