    1. Yay I'm so happy that your comment will actually be happening soon!

  2. Yaaaaay! This is a great list, I can`t wait to hear more about it all! :D I love these kinds of posts, it`s a great way to learn more about other bloggers.

    (Also, Hedgefairy`s mori challenge sounds like fun! Maybe I`ll give that a go myself when things have settled down a bit :D)

    1. Thanks! Yes I think they're interesting, they show what people's priorities and dreams are. Let me know if you do the Hedgefairy mori challenge!

  3. Quite a few of those ideas on your list would appear on mine as well. In fact we have just booked a trip to Scotland (your no 98) during the autumn half term break!

    Good luck with your mission and I look forward to reading your posts


    1. Thank you! Ahhh I'm a bit jealous of your Scotland trip, I hope you had a wonderful time! I need to save money for a while first before I can book mine.

  4. I love this idea!! My favorites are the creative ones. Inktober is top on my list too and definitely #40!!

    1. Thanks! Yes haha, savings are a big one. I need to put more in mine really but I keep buying pretty thrifted stuff.

  5. Yay, I love lists like this! You have some lovely things on it as well. I'm looking forward to reading all about your adventures. xx

    1. Thank you! I'm looking forward to all these adventures, I think it's going to be really fun.

  6. I love the mermaid tea party idea, that's so cute and cool! This is a great list - I love it. I must try this sometime myself. - Tasha

  7. I love this, I look forward to hearing about your adventures and I think I might make a list like this myself just to stop myself procrastinating over stuff xx

    1. Thanks! Yes do it, I'd be really interested to see what your list would have on it. I like this challenge because it's over such a long period of time, you can just do a little bit towards it each day and it doesn't feel pressured.
