I have been tagged by the very lovely Nicola at The Yogic Housewife (please check out her blog, it’s a ray of sunshine) to write my own Christmas Wish list.
This is kind of a tricky one as my husband has been asking me what I want for Christmas for weeks now and I can’t actually think of anything. To be perfectly honest, I want for nothing and whilst this may sound very ‘happy clappy’ I have everything I need when my family is safe and well and happy.
However, am keen to enter into the spirit of this so here goes:
Wish number 1)
We are flying to Oregon this Christmas to visit my husband’s family. We have an 11 hour flight + a change over + another 1 hour flight. I am sick to my stomach at the very thought. So I wish for this:
These are not my children by the way, I ‘borrowed’ the picture from an article on how to travel peacefully with small children. I read a lot of these at the moment. They are all highly positive (and highly misleading!).
Wish number 2)
I wish that I will stop worrying about: the flights, the logistics of staying with 3 different family members in 2 weeks, that Cupcake baby will scream for the entire 2 weeks, that Munchkin boy will suddenly become more of a moody teenager than he has been the last week, that they won’t have suitable food for organic fed children in America and I will be forced to feed them McDonalds every day (ha ha ha) and so on, and so on and so on. So I am adding an extra bit to enable this wish, I’d like copious amounts of this please:
Wish number 3)
If I really, REALLY, have to wish for an actual present then I would quite like these, please:
Sigh, I am in love with these shoes…..
but really this is what I wish for the most:
Wish number 4)
In my last post I mentioned that a family member has a sick little boy. I also am thinking a lot about a friend of mine whose little girl (aged the same age as Cupcake baby) has been diagnosed with a brain tumour. I really, really wish that both these families receive miracles and that at the very least, they get to spend a pain free holiday period.
Now I would love to see the Christmas Wish Lists from:
