Chatting with a friend the other day over a cuppa the conversation came around to life in general (it always seem to) She said a friend had asked her what did she want out of a relationship. The good bits was her answer. It got me thinking about my life, my hopes, dreams, what I want out of life (not a relationship – that toooooo complicated for my overloaded brain to think about at this moment in my life - friends are certainly far more important)
In fact I have though about it non-stop.
I want to read more, I want to be able to organise my time better. To do the housework in say one hit and that would leave the evenings for ‘me’ (The J’s seem to go to bed later and later) I would love to be solvent, not to worry about money all the time, to be able to think I like that, I work hard, I’ll get it rather then how it is at the moment, just look at it and think one day.....
I’d like to remember to put hand cream on, I’ll never have lady like hands but for them not to feel (and look) like sand paper would be good.
I’d like to be brave enough to change jobs, I LOVE to be a dog warden, or to work outside. To work on a small holding. A plant nursery, or heaven - a wool shop. To wake up in the morning and look forward to going to work. Is that too much to want?
I’d like to wear a skirt, not all the time but every now and then, rather then say twice a year. (I have two but I only do them with boots)
I’d like to ‘not’ cross the road to avoid having to hold a conversation with someone I know. I think there is a proper word for the hermit-reclusive tendencies I have at the moment – and no it isn’t shy!!
I’d like to stop keeping things in case they come in useful. Boy!! My house would be empty!
I’d like to live in a wooden cabin, in a bit of land, near the sea in Cornwall. I’d like no phone, internet when I choose, no TV, one big room downstairs - kitchen / snug / dining room with Rayburn again. I’d like my bedroom in the loft with windows that I can look out at the night sky. I’d like to grow what I eat, I’d like to listen to more music (bit of a Show of Hands fan) I’d like hens around me again ( I do miss living on a small holding) I’d love a poly tunnel. I love this kitchen in a country living book.
Enough of this waffle!!My Attic 24 bag is coming on a treat, the other bag felted VERY well (tip, if you are going to machine felt Noro, start on a 30 wash!!)
