Hello Sweet Pea!
One of the ideas that was presented to me on my Christmas Yankee Candle giveaway was to do a post on:
'Your thoughts personally about what your future plans are? E.g. a future fairy wish post! If your future fairy could grant you 3 wishes what would they be? Career? Marriage? Family? Visiting / moving to a new place?'
This was given to me by Carley from Talons and Posies, who's blog seems to have done a disappearing act and I'm gutted! I really hope it's a glitch because she's one of my favourite bloggers, and she's absolutely gorgeous!
I thought this idea was fabulous, and so original. I love that she's gone to so much effort to think of something, so how could I not do it??
Wish 1 - Moving to a new place
I want to move over to the States ideally. I wan't the life with the beautiful old colonial house; think Bree from Desperate Housewives. I love the lifestyle over there, and I want to be somewhere where the sun shines on a much more regular basis!
Wish 2 - 'Marriage'
It's no secret that I don't want to get married, you can see my views on that in this post. (I may however be tempted to marry if it involved Rachel Weiss. And Alex, I know you're reading this, so don't be coming home giving me grief. Two words; Penelope Cruz!)
In all seriousness though, I do very much want to have a civil partnership. Although my relationship is not 'traditional', I myself am. As far as things go, I think you'll all have made the assumption that I'm the woman in our relationship, you're not going to catch Alex out in a dress on a Friday night at any point soon. I do have a very stereotypical female role in our house, and Alex is very much the male figure. We really are just like any other couple, and I would love to make our relationship official. We've been together over 2 years, have a beautiful home together and I can honestly say I can't imagine ever being with anyone else.
Wish 3 - Career
Within the next year I will have won the Euromillions and will live in the lap of luxury for the rest of my life.
It's always been expected that I'll go into Law as a career, since I mentioned when I was 14 that I might want to be a lawyer, the whole family latched on to it. If I'm honest, the idea fills me with both dread and despair. In my ideal world, I would love to have my own business. I thrive on common sense and I'm very streetwise, while education is incredibly important to me, I don't believe that you have to have a degree to be successful in life. One of the reasons why I love my blog so much, is that it's my own shot at something that I've grown myself. I hope in vain, that my blog might save me from my fate of a desk job.
And that, would be my ideal life! Hopefully, I might even manage to achieve all 3 rather than just 1 and 2. But that's something I'm working on. I have to say though, I love my life as it is now. I'm very fortunate and it's not something that I ever forget. 'Life passes you by while you're busy making grand plans' so I'm going to make sure I make the most of every single day, then even if I don't get these wishes, I'll have no regrets.
Have a wonderful day everyone,
