Smorgasbord Sunday Interview – The Ultimate Bucket List – Living the Dream

Yesterday, I was a guest over at Sally’s for her new series… thank you Sally for allowing me to dream 🙂

Welcome to the Sunday Interview and the theme is The Ultimate Bucket List.

In this interview series I would love to know what your top TWO items are on your bucket list and if you have not written one yet, then perhaps it is time to get your thinking caps on.


Here is more about how you can participate here:

My guest today is Sue Vincent whose popular blog offers a wide range of topics and themes for us to enjoy from poetry and challenges to ancient monuments and churches. Sue takes us on a journey through a much older Britain when paganism was the religion of the day and as early Christianity began to surpass the old ways. She has a constant companion in the shape of a small black dog, Ani, who also writes occasionally posts on the lack of play-time and missing tennis balls. You can find out more about Sue’s books and collaborations later in the post.

Living the Dream – Sue Vincent

Sally says that the top items on the Bucket List can be taken for granted. That may be so, but if we all wish for world peace, to live in harmony with each other and the earth, and see our children and grandchildren grow as happy, healthy and fulfilled human beings, I sometimes wonder where we are going wrong.

Be that as it may, this feature requires that the top two items should be taken from a personal Bucket List… and that is easy. Once upon a time, Egypt was at the top of that list… a lifelong ambition that never came to pass. Others, such as living la vie Bohème and living in Paris, did happen. I have had my fair share of dreams come true… but that is no reason to stop dreaming.

These days my dreams are closer to home. Top of my list is a camper van. As I would have to submit this request to a fairy godmother, while she is waving her wand, the van would come with several years of insurance and a guaranteed pass on its MOT, an unlimited supply of fuel and, while she is at it, a magic cauldron to keep us fed. It would be big enough to live in for an extended period and small enough to get down the tiny country lanes that lead to every stone circle and ancient site in Great Britain and Ireland.

Okay, the godmother might have to extend my lifespan a bit to see them all, but I would give it my best shot!

I am no fairy godmother Sue.. but perhaps something like this?
