Bucket list linky: what do you want to do?

What is on your life-long to-do list? Do you have burning ambitions? Of course you do.

The 2007 film The Bucket List starred Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman as two terminally ill men who go on a road trip with a list of things to do before they kick the bucket. 

Not, before anyone asks, that I am terminally ill, or even slightly under the weather. I just think that it's good to know what you're aiming for. 

Here is my bucket list:
  • See the aurora borealis. A long-held ambition that even defied a trip to Iceland.  
  • Fly a seaplane to some fabulous Scottish West Coast island hideaway.  
  • Become comfortable with public speaking, maybe even enjoy it.  
  • Climb Kilimanjaro. Super sister says she's up for this.
  • Visit the Australian rellies, in Australia. 
  • See my sons all settled in homes, jobs and lives that make them happy. 
  • Learn to salsa dance. 
  • Get a novel published. 
  • Go on a yoga retreat.Transatlantic Blonde fancies this.
  • Fit back into all those clothes. 
  • Work less. 
  • Ski more. 
  • Get a non-fiction book published. Done
  • Conquer the clutter (or at least make peace with it). Lost interest in this
  • Have a lovely garden. And this
  • Learn to take good pictures with my lovely new camera. 
  • To be the kind of confident freelancer who can pick and choose. 
  • Visit Russia.  
  • Visit India. 
  • Stay in an ice hotel. Ms JS of Priority PR, we will do this.
  • Visit New Orleans. 
  • Learn to say no without feeling bad.  
  • Go fire walking.  
  • Travel on the Orient Express. 
  • Spend a night in New York.  
  • Learn to paint, and I don't mean emulsion.  
  • Continue to share daily conversations with my lovely husband.  
  • Continue to spend memorable times with my fabulous family.  
  • Finish the Times crossword.
  • See the RSC at Stratford. Thanks mum. 
  • Climb more mountains.  
  • Go back to live in Cumbria. 
  • Cook more food for more people more often.  
  • Don't leave a day unseized.
Now I'm not one for telling people what to do - unless I married or gave birth to them - but if you fancy it, draw up your own. @mmelindor says she'll have a go. In fact, she suggested a little linky. So here you go:
