The last days of Summer...............

It is the end of August and already Summer seems like a lifetime away.It has for the best part been a good one,I am of course comparing it to last Summer,when you will all remember I lost my Dad,the summer of hot tears and bearing up,but here I am a whole year on and I have survived.This Summer has been the Summer of hope,the Summer of dreams,I have made some lovely new friends,I have partied perhaps a little too hard with old ones! I have worked hard and relaxed too little,I didnt have as many barbeques as I planned,I did not get to spend as much time at my allotment as I would have liked,but I have awoke each day with hope in my heart and a feeling that something good is just around the corner.I have loved my garden this Summer,it has been a beautiful secret fairytale world,I have loved the School holidays despite being so busy,I love the lazy mornings and my sleepy girls.I have rediscovered Donna Summer and she is my chosen soundtrack in the car just now,I have loved reading A streetcar named Desire and watching 'medium' late at night.Only a week left and its back to School and soon Autumn will be here.I am sort of excited!

Wish list............

It is a dull rainy day today,I do hope we see some more sunshine in August.The day did not start well,I awoke with a headache and a grumpy disposition,shouldn't have had that last glass of wine last night.Went out to the car thinking a little jaunt to Sainsburys would cheer me up,only to discover I had a flat tyre,waited an hour for the breakdown service to come and change it and then tootled off to the aforementioned supermarket and bought lots of unnecessary items,returned home only to be plunged into a power cut for another hour,however Hubby had very decently tidied up whilst I was out so its not all bad.We all sat around like helpless fools whilst the electricity was off,the children completely dumbfounded without the television or computers,Thank God it was only off an hour otherwise I suspect they would have slipped into boredom induced comas.Myself,I relished the peace and quiet and to amuse myself,I made a mental wish goes;

1. I wish (obviously) this headache would go away.

2.I wish my life was easier/less complicated/without drama(or are these all the same?)

3.I wish most of my shoes didn't hurt my feet.

4.I wish I was fabulously wealthy/beautiful/thin.Yes I am very shallow.

5.I wish that Saturday night TV was better.

6.I wish I had a warm chocolate brownie with vanilla ice cream .

7.I wish Hello magazine would put some decent celebs in instead of Z Lister's like Katie Price and Kerry Katona.

8.I wish I had a real Birkin bag.

9.I wish it was a hot sunny day.

10.I wish I could have stayed in bed all day.

Had enough yet? yes me too all this wishing has left me weak and craving chocolate......wish I didn't like chocolate.
