Drumsticks are turning 60! #DrumstickBucketList

This post may contain affiliate links.

Recently I went to the Blog On conference, in Manchester. While there we were treated to a number of goodies from the good people at Swizzels. There was also an amazing Drumstick cake – to celebrate that the humble Drumstick is turning 60. We were all invited to submit ideas for our very own #DrumstickBucketList and the lovely Hollie, from Thrifty Mum, won a spa day for entering.

Drumsticks are turning 60 and to celebrate there is a whole campaign, and competition, centred around the #DrumstickBucketList, which you can find here. The idea is to complete an item on the #DrumstickBucketList , featuring a Drumstick lolly, and then you can enter the competition to win a prize. There are goody bags, certificates and even experience days up for grabs for the best entries.

I’m a big fan of keeping a bucket list, and have one for 2017 that I’m working through. Our aim in keeping a bucket list each year is to have fun, spend time together and try new things each and every year. This is great for keeping life fun, and giving us something to look forward to when working hard.

My lucky number is 25 and number 25 on the #DrumstickBucketList is ‘Relax in a hot tub’. I’ve got a nice holiday booked, for November, for my family to go to Centerparcs. We will be staying in a lodge with a hot tub and I’m really looking forward to relaxing together now. Our daughter Daisy, who is 16 months, goes to bed at around 6pm at present. This means that we can relax in the hot tub in the evening for at least a few hours together. I’m really looking forward to this time and I’ll be sure to have a Drumstick lolly on hand!

Number 3 on the #DrumstickBucketList is to ‘Write my name in the sand’. As my nieces and nephews are going to be down in a couple of weeks I’ve got a lovely hamper of Swizzels goodies to share with them! We haven’t seen one another for several months now and I can’t wait to see how much they’ve grown! Best of all when they continue their journey on to my brother’s home, near the beach, they’ll have yummy Drumsticks on hand to write their own name in the sand.

#DrumstickBucketList Hamper from Swizzels

As well as sharing out some of these goodies with my loved ones I’ve got another hamper to give away too. Thanks to the good people at Swizzels, and their #DrumstickBucketList you could win a hamper for yourself. You can choose who to share it with, or even just snaffle all the goodies for yourself! Why not enter now and leave me a comment below (complete the Rafflecopter entry too for your comment to count as an entry). Let me know which number off the #DrumstickBucketList you want to re-create with the aid of the humble Drumstick lolly. Be sure to enter the competition over on the Swizzels website too.
