The Best Friend Bucket List

A little while back I started my bucket list. A long, long list of all the wonderful and exciting things I wanted to experience and achieve. Some of these things involved my best friend Becky.

Becky and I have known each other since we met in the registration line at university in 2013. Since then we have been on lots of adventures. There’s a lovely long line of wonderful things we have done together.

While my husband (then boyfriend) was posted in wales I think I went on more dinner dates with Becky than I did Karl! I definitely saw more of her. Unfortunately since we have both left uni we don’t get to see each other as much as we would like…. She lives in Horsham and we are posted in Dorset. That doesn’t stop us planning adventures. The day after our most recent escapade, while sleepy and sipping tea we were discussing the bucket list and all the things we wanted to do together, we came up with a little idea: the BEST FRIEND BUCKET LIST. (There may be a small amount of cross over with my existing bucket list and some things we have done alone but never together).
