On our fridge, and in more detail in my head, we have a To Do List. It’s not one of those boring ones about hoovering and chores though, but about all the places to go and things to do while we’re over here in Australia. We’ve added this page to share it with you and you’re more than welcome to give us ideas too! Where I’ve written stuff up I’ll add a link to the review too. It’s a lot of this and I don’t expect to do them all, but it gives us something to aim for!
