Bucket List - 30 Before 30

30 before 30 - a bucket list

30 things I want to do before I hit 30 - in August 2018.


1. Write a book.

2. Complete 101 crafts with Marianna. (Expect to hear lots more about this.)

3. Bake a cake.

4. Sew an outfit - in miniature!

5. Buy a pair of shoes because they look good - not because they're comfortable! (Bonus points if they're both...)

6. Walk barefoot on the beach. - We went to Cold Knap in Barry.

7. Go out for a romantic meal.

8. Attend a concert I want to see. (As in, it won't count if I just go to something work related!)

9. Win a prize worth more than £250. - I won two TVs and a swanky phone this summer!

10. Sit for a professional family photo.

11. Rollerskate.

12. Get married!

13. Complete a jigsaw puzzle.

14. Tame the back garden.

15. Get into the top 100 on Tots100 - even if it's only for one update, I'm determined!

16. Tame the front garden.

17. Claw my way out of my overdraft.

18. Read - and review - 250 books.

19. Paint a picture.

20. Gain a new qualification.

21. Put the Mountfield dollhouse together.

22. Take Marianna to the zoo.

23. Watch a film at the cinema.

24. Get back into a size 10. Gotta be ambitious, after all.

25. Ride a bike. This one could be difficult - I even refused to get on a bike when I lived in Cambridge, so the last time was probably when I was about 11.

26. Take Marianna swimming.

27. Spend the night outside Wales. Since having Marianna we've barely crossed the border.

28. Go bowling.

29. Attend a blogging conference.

30. Host a party.

  1. You've got some great ideas on here!

    Good luck with your list :)

  2. Go on, jump on that bike! If you could manage at 11, you can manage now too. You can't forget how to ride a bike. I will be 30 next year but I didn't think of a bucket list yet. I suppose I want to visit as many countries as I can before then (I already passed 35, so I can't say I want to visit 30 before 30) :)

    1. Hopefully not! It'll be time to teach my daughter before too long so we can be wobbly together! :)

  3. Sadly, I am well past 30 and there are some of these I still haven't done. I can recommend baby swimming though. My little one swims with Puddle Ducks and loves it. Also, I definitely agree you should attend a blogging conference. Come to Britmums! #BloggerClubUK

  10. I love bucket lists. Some of these are easy which is perfect because you want them to be realistic and to be able to tick some off immediately right? like baking a cake :) should be a lot of fun doing these. Good luck x

    1. Exactly - it gives you a bit of a push to go on to the next one! (Well, hopefully!) x

  11. This is a great list! Very achievable too, which is important, although it seems you've achieved so much already. My next 'big' birthday is 50 (OMG!), not for a good whie yet I might add, but 50 before 50 would be a big list! #BloggerClubUK

    1. Thank you! :) I think if I've had gone for a big 'all in' bucket list it would have depressed me a bit how many are just totally out of reach due to finances, so this seemed like a good compromise!

  12. What a lovely list, it's so good to have personal goals like this. I love the name Marianna too!

  14. Good luck!! I'm 30 in September and last year I did a list of things to do but then I fell pregnant and many of the things were impossible! Ooops, I now have two months (with a newborn attached to me) to ride a horse, visit Berlin, do a hot air balloon ride and 's bunch of other things! Haha xx

    1. xD I'm just imagining this montage of you doing it all - wearing roller skates, and probably advertising tampax at the same time like WonderWoman! x

  17. What a fun list, although I'd have to come up with a much longer one, since mine would have to be "before 50" :/

    1. Knowing me, some of these will probably be carried over to my 50 list!

Guide to Sindy Houses

As far as 1/6 scale doll houses go, Sindy's Super Home is fairly ubiquitous. It's a good size, it isn't made out of pink plastic, and you can pick one up on eBay for under £50. But the Super Home wasn't Sindy's only foray into property ownership. In fact she had numerous different houses, caravans, stables, and other buildings... 1970 Sindy's Town House Though this was advertised in the 1970 brochure, it doesn't seem to have ever made it into production. 1973 Sindy's House This one apparently made it into limited production, but was flimsy and was soon replaced. According to the Sindy Museum , it had four rooms, decorated as a bedroom, bathroom, kitchen and lounge. You can see part of the house used for photos in the 1974 catalogue . 1974 Sindy's House Existing examples appear to have been competition wins, so it is unlikely this house was ever on general sale. You can read more about it HERE . 1975
