My British Bucket List
Likelihood of achievement: fair (with continued diligence and a bit of good luck).
Likelihood of achievement: excellent (any suggestions where I might make reservations?)
Likelihood of achievement: poor. I currently consider walking the dog for 30 minutes on flat surfaces, “quite a good walk”. Thus the time commitment and training to do such a walk doesn’t bode well for me. But that could change, you never know.
Likelihood of achievement: excellent (if I’m willing to accept I probably can’t nor will want to see that many in just one weekend and space them out more).
Likelihood of achievement: variable since it largely depends on how I define “rugby player” and if “former” is allowed.
Likelihood of achievement: Good, especially if I’m doing it with someone who is happy to “drive” the boat and we don’t have to worry about that side of things.
Likelihood of achievement: Excellent. Perhaps it’ll have to be something I do with my mom during her next visit. It’s a lot of money but it’d be one of those experiences that we could talk about and say we’ve done.
Likelihood of achievement: A real toss up. Once I’m busy doing the other items on the bucket list and also going off and seeing places abroad, I doubt I’ll ever really make the time to drive up to the midlands to see this. However, when my sister and her family come to visit, that may be something we work into an already planned road trip somewhere (probably something to do with Doctor Who, if I know them).
9. Be swept off my feet by a Scotsman (with good teeth) – if I were writing about fantasies, then this would be combined with number 5 but I’m a (semi) realist and am breaking down the bucket list into separate items. Being swept away could be short term or long term but I tell you what, I’m a sucker for the Scottish accent. If he has good (or even decent) teeth, he’s so in with a chance.
Likelihood of achievement – poor. Insert jokes here about Scottish teeth if you like but that’s not the reason this has such a low likelihood. The reason is I live on the south coast and there aren’t many Scotsmen around, let alone ones with good teeth who would like to sweep this American with big hair and red lips off her feet. Still, hope springs eternal.
Likelihood of achievement – Fair. If I were willing to travel and queue, it’d change this to “likely”. But as I’m not, I’ll have to rely on diligence on my part and fairness on theirs.
What about you? Do you have anything on your British Bucket List? Or if not that, what is on your general Bucket List? I can’t wait to read your comments!
