Maybe climb a Mountain. I've only ever climbed hills. Perhaps it's time to begin Munro-bagging? :)

finish and Post all those half-written proper pen-and-paper letters I start but don't finish...

errr - this is more like a To Do than a bucket so...

taking the time to Paint that half-finished/half started thing that stands on an easel in our fairly newly-built but very messy "hobby-room" (I love it - daughter and I have a sewing corner, there are paints and brushes in easy reach - and a pile of model stuff my son makes.

But a lot never gets finished, sigh...

so Prioritise finishing this stuff. In these times we can't travel so buckets need to be closer to home. Stay safe <:)>

Take the time do do positive things instead of stupidly Trawling the internet for all this life-advice but then not being able to do anything about it.

Not at all, Luna! I've been enjoying everyone's replies, but I was a bit too busy over the weekend to add anything, sorry <:)>

When the time comes, get Vaccinated ;)?

Oddly, I had a rare restless night last night too, and was wide awake in the small hours for my previous reply. I hope we both sleep better tonight, in our respective time zones ;)?

Buy (or even make) a Zoetrope of people riding Zebras :D

How about FF's idea for an

FF suggested Mark Anthony. I'll see his Mark Anthony and raise him a Lord Byron...

Thanks, Mark, here's a couple I read about a few years ago. Sleep does seem to be relative at times, sometimes like a favourite aunt, and sometimes like the gregarious uncle ()o

Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo

Nice one, Trojan - I'm a big fan of GMH ;)?

Lady Emma Hamilton - does she count? She certainly made me feel very romantic whenever I gazed at the copy of this painting on the wall of my A level history classroom 💘
