My Foodie Bucket List
At the beginning of last year - I was overwhelmed with FOMO - watching everyone look up Genies Foodie Bucket list and their draw up their own.
Well with a list of 'Renovating To-Do's' longer than I had the energy for, I had to let it go - but it has been quietly sitting in the back of my mind begging to be written - I mentioned it to another blogger, who had done one, and was advised that it then became a nuisance - sitting there needing to have things ticked off. But I have been doing things on the unwritten list anyway.
I have always had a list - just never on paper, and whenever an opportunity to do something on the unwritten list arose - I always took it. Sometimes not in the form I imagined. This list is not finite - there will be additions...
So here we go...
Have my herb & vege garden sustain my family for a whole month - without them noticing (I have to master potatoes to do this )
Visit Annabel Langbeins Vege garden (I'm not sure how to do this without appearing like a stalker) but its on the list.
