No bucket list as such. There are plenty of things I'd like to do and if they happen they happen. If they don't they don't. No point in getting wound up about things.
We had always 'planned' in the losest sense to go to New Zealand for a month around my 60th birthday. That was scuppered when the banks crashed and took our savings with them. I'd worked for RBS for many years and the vast majority of our savings were in the Share Save scheme.
The dates we had pencilled in, had the trip happened, would have put us in Christchurch on the day of the massive earthquake, so maybe fate took a hand.
I've seen too many friends make plans for the long term only to see them shattered for one reason or another, to do more than live for the now.
