Bucket list


I am not trying to be the prophet of doom, but al lot of my recovery depended on things that I liked to do - even if they bordered on the ridiculous or silly. One of them was being a singer ok, that is sooo unlikely but it's fun and with the help of a friend I made a little record. Please forgive the burpy of even farty sounding noises because it isn't the best recording in the world. What I am trying to say is that when you are better, you may not necessarily find success and glory, but you can esiiy find a bit of fun and satisfaction in things you aren't bad at xxxxxx

One of my favorite songs - and a fine job at it too, Kate

Just lovely Kate...you clever clever woman...I personally struggle to carry a tune, unfortunately, that doesn't stop me.

I have also been thinking about a bucket list...being sober makes a lot of things doable and achievable goal setting.

Thanks guys, much fun, although rather karaoke. It was for my dad but when we played it to him it, he said it was his mum, Lottie singing him to sleep, but I don't mind.

That was fantastic, Kate.
Love the idea of a bucket list.
BTW, I thought the farty noises added to it
