The Expectation Of Self Bucket List

The Expectation of self is quite a hard challenge at times , I'm quite a free flowing free thinking person . I agree to social situations then quite frankly I don't want to go , I'd rather go off cycling if I'm honest on my bicycle and ding my bell , I'm probably a modern day hermit . Being yourself is a hard expectation and wanting to be social yet shying away from it is a a balancing act , and I was very good at indivisible   gymnastics at school . 


1 . I'd like to go on the Orient Express and have a posh lunch , drink nice wine .. have a cup of tea ~,wear a dress and not look like Tammy Mallett has got dressed in the dark . I can't possibly commit to wearing a shoe with a heel and I end up looking like Dustin Hoffman from Tootsie.

2. Have tea at the Ritz , couldn't care less if someone has to sell their lung to get me an over priced cucumber sandwich , I know that I'll savour the moment. 

3 . Have a book nook , with a hig ~  backed reading chair you can snuggle in and hid away from the world .


4. Punt in Cambridge  ~ someone else would have to punt and good company with a gin picnic . Of course Oxford as well I would love to immerse myself in the Ashmolean..

5 . A sigh seeing tour of England , stopping in nice country pubs with a jaunt on a rather jolly steam train.

6. A meander round Convent garden and I'd love to go round the Brick Lane area   .

7. Theatre trip , pre evening tipple and a meal and lollop back to a rather nice hotel see wish number 2

8. A nice game of chess ~ that I actually win.

9. A photography walk in the countryside perhaps Devon,  I've been there or the Cotswolds I would love to go there and meander round the antique shops.

10. Treat myself to fresh flowers .. Oh and a soup maker for valentines . I'm not much one for Valentines unless  1,2,3,4,5,6 9 and 10 are involved .

  1. Had to laugh at number 1, you sound like my Mum! She always claims that if she wears a skirt she looks like a man in drag.

  2. A great post Claire. The book nook really resonated with me. I would also like to have the time to use one. Sigh.x
