Wish Cast Wednesday

Jamie asked us today: What do you wish to experience? Ohhh, a excuse to make a list! I am in the mood for lists today.

I wish to experience:

* A beautiful Summer's day day trip on a stream train with Big fellas hand in mine and my camera in the other, rolling through the Welsh railway shore line with a smile in my heart and my eyes for only him. What a wonderful adventure to be had!

* The love and affection of our very own dog. Big fella and I both love dogs, I love all of them but big fella is quite specific (and wise) as he researches very detail about every breed of dog first. I love that about him, he gently pulls me back down to earth at times. But regrettably with this magical place we rent, no pets allowed. Which we totally respect and understand. (I just hope a huge, massive aquarium, now with LASER BEAMS no less with all different manner of fish does not count. I alas can not pull Big Fella back to earth so easily you see.
So if we ever move (oh god, i am sweating even thinking about it) we will get a dog.

. * Swimming with Great white sharks. Yep, I said it. I would just love to do this. I watched Jaws when I was seven, I snuck out of bed and hid behind the sofa when my dad was watching it on telly one night. I was frightening to death and refused to even sit on a toilet for days. But something stuck and I have always loved watching documentaries about the wonder and mystic about them. I would love to see them in front of me swimming inches before my eyes. I would of course insist that at the time under water I would be encased in a metal shark resistant bullet proof glass box with refreshments and nibbles on stand by. That's a big wish, I may have to wait on that one a wee while.

I would love to experince driving.

I did do lessons when I was younger, but I never finished them. I am also a big scardy pants. The fear has gripped me, driving frightens me and that just with other people driving me about. I act all nice and grateful for the lift from someone, all the while in the back my head I am hoping we won't crash. No way to live eh? Also no way to think of a perfectly good driver. So big fella has graciously let me get behind the wheel of his trusty stead of a car in the abandoned parking lot up the road from us most days. Its hard going for big fella though, I have currently so far driven to the next parking space and stalled the car and not gone any further, gripping the steering wheel for dear life. I am getting there though. Bit by bit, day by day. Anyway I like the idea of going on adventure on a train, and bus and my two left feet to carry me about on my travels. Big fella is a big help too! But I will conquer this silly fear soon enough me thinks!

What do you wish for today?

Did you see those TV shows when the late Steve Irwin (the Crocodile Hunter) went down in a protective cage to experience sharks up close and personal? He was a crazy bastard.

As Claire wishes for herself, I so wish for her also.

The train sounds like a lovely way to spend the day with the one you love.

My sister was almost thirty years old before I convinced her to learn to drive, now you couldn't stop her.

Wishing you a wonderful week!
