An awfully British bucket list! From owning an umbrella that doesn't break to never queuing again in Primark people reveal what they REALLY want to achieve in life

  • Twitter users from across the UK shared the little things that they're dreaming of 
  • The amusing checklists were posted with the hashtag #AwfullyBritishBucketList
  • Homegrown suggestions included afternoon tea with baking idol Mary Berry

While some people dream of swimming with dolphins or scaling Everest, Twitter users have been revealing some rather more modest aspirations on their bucket list. 

The humorous checklists were posted with the Twitter hashtag #AwfullyBritishBucketList, which quickly started trending as Brits shared aspirations such as owning a functioning umbrella. 

Others wanted to see cheese and onion crisps instated in green packets 'where they belong', while one man is creaming of seeing the 'end of the DFS sale', while others want an end to queueing  in Primark.  

From going a whole day without mentioning the weather to dreaming of a decent umbrella, social media users from across the UK shared the little things that they're dreaming of.

Here, FEMAIL shares a selection of the best examples...
