    I shared this with a few of you and it seems I have started a trend lol.

    Here is mine....share your ideas and let's see if we can get some things ticked off between us this year!

    Ooh you mean cirque de soleil pixie. I saw them in London once and they are fab!

    Vegas is their 'home' stadium so it will be awesome if you get to see them there!!

    Emsie - I can't recommend Rome enough. When you book I can give you loads of cool things to do as well as the obvious :)

    I also want to win the lottery lol!!

    Is this a list that gets updated?! I'm intrigued....

    pixie-gem Well-Known Member

    There's a Times book list I think of the top 200 or so books everyone should, full of old, new and obscure


    Here's another one. Or if you have certain books you've always wanted to read then just add them or make a list :)

    Well, I`ve thought of a couple of things...

    1. Travel across Canada by train
    2. Likewise for New Zealand
    3. Get to below 9 stone (and stay there!)
    4. Be debt free
    5. Save more

    I`ve already done a couple of things that others might have their bucket list.
    I`ve done abseiling, seen Rome, been in a cable car
    And been to the top of an Olympic ski jump, albeit in summer!
    That was scary enough without ice and snow!! :)
