I have two months left before I have to go back to work. This makes me feel sad but I won’t let it get me down. I have decided to write a list of what we are going to do in the next 8 weeks. I want to have fun, make memories and not waste any time. I feel like I missed out at the start so I want to make the end of my maternity leave so much better.
I do have some annual leave to take when I get back to work so I will only be working a few days a week to start which is nice. However I can’t pretend that I am still on mat leave; it must end , I must go to work, and things must change.
I asked people on twitter and Facebook what I should out on my list and I got some great ideas.
So without further ado, here is my list. I hope you enjoy!
My Maternity Leave Bucket List: 8 Weeks Left
Go to a Farm
Go to Aquarium
Bake a Cake
Start a ‘Crafty’ Project
Jumping in Puddles
Make Christmas Cards
Make Christmas Presents
Complete (or rather start) scrapbook
Go to the Seaside
Go to the Park, play on the swings
Make Clay Hand and Foot Prints
Spend a Day with Daddy
Sort out photographs and put some on walls
Go to Soft Play
Go for a Picnic
Go for a Play Date
Wear Matching Clothes
Spend a lazy day in PJ’s watching DVD
Go to the Cinema? (not sure if she will, but maybe!)
Go to a Children’s Play/Pantomime
I will try to do as may of these things as possible. Maybe not all of them are possible, but it’s good to dream. I am feeling very positive and excited for the weeks ahead.
