make the most of january - bucket list

Click image for larger printable

January!!!! Is it me or does every year seem to go a little faster? It makes me realise how important it is to make the most of every day. I am so glad I started writing a bucket list as it reminds me to keep doing the fun stuff as it is so easy to forget when you are busy with the everyday.

Having a winter picnic passed us by last month as the weather has just not been good enough. I long for cold, crisp sunny days so we can wrap up, pack up our thermos and head out. Those are the kind of days I love. 

I really want to make a start of restyling my kitchen. The New Year always signifies freshness and my little kitchen needs some love and attention. A few licks of paint on my walls and kitchen cupboards and it will look altogether new.

Have you any plans or resolutions for January? 

Have a lovely day and enjoy your weekend. We have plans for a date night tomorrow and a walk on Sunday. Weather permitting, of course!


  1. Hey, I love this. What a great idea. I am going to print this for myself. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Thank you so much. I'm so glad you like it. Since making a monthly bucket list for myself, I have done so much more. :-)

  2. I really need to make a list also! Happy new year Rachel:)

    1. I love having a visual list I can look at. Happy New Year Anne :-)

  3. Hi Rachel!

    Happy New Year!
    I love your New Year's resolutions, they are more realistic and they make sense, everybody should have the same resolutions, the world would be a better place -

    As far as my list, i kind of have one all the time in my head - Always a million things i want to do, long bucket list! I'm usually pretty good with my list, a part from a few things...

    Again i love yours, i might steal some of your ideas!

    About the cold, i will trade place with you anytime! -35 - Is this cold enough for you?

    Take care



    1. Hi Ariane, Happy New Year to you too! I'm hoping as they are written down I will follow them! Steal away, I hope they work for you.
      Now that sounds cold!!!! How do you cope in such cold temperatures? I would be useless. I find it hard to function if it is ever -1!
      Take care chic
      Hugs Rachel xxxx

  4. Hi and Happy New Year to you. Just trying to write my post about resolutions and things to do this year. Just hoping 3rd day lucky I may actually get my self organised lol.

    1. Hi Kairen, Happy New Year to you too! I'm sure you will soon get organised. It always takes a while to get back into the swing of things after Christmas I think :-)

  5. Happy New Year, We are doing redecorating too xx

    1. Happy New Year! I hope the decorating is going well. I have not started mine yet, but I can't wait to get it all freshened up. xx

  6. Fabulous list! Go girl! They are all so do-able! I need a Mama planner to scribble some stuff down on for the family & I! Ax

    1. Thank you sweetie. I tried to make them achievable so I would stick to them. I love notebooks, there are so many pretty ones to buy :-)
