Day 28: If you had 3 wishes what would they be OR Craft something Craft something to celebrate a new home
Well I wrote my three wishes and then thought about it some more . My first draft was this.
If I had 3 wishes my first wish would be that totally selfish and I would wish that I wasn’t ill. It can stop me doing so many things and I hate it. My second wish would be that I either earned or won enough money to allow me to take the children on holiday as I have never taken them anywhere ( My last holiday was my honeymoon and I have been divorced 12 years lol) . I would also like a bigger home as the one I got really isn’t big enough at times. My last wish would be that my town had a craft shop.
But then I realised that the first tow wishes actually go against the whole ethos of my way of thinking. I believe everything happens for a reason and if I wasnt ill I wouldn’t be writing this blog post or have this craft blog as I would be still chasing my own tail in the corporate office world. Yes being ill is a major pain in the arse and there is a lot I can’t do but there is also a huge amount I can do because of it. I can move my work schedule around to suit me, not many can say that. Yes it would be nice to take the kids on holiday but they have been skiing with their Dad so they are hardly hard done by. And personally I am not so stressed any more so I don’t feel the need for a holiday.
So my wish list revised is..
I wish that there was a craft shop in my town as my nearest is still a drive away and I want one closer.
I wish that more people understood that money isn’t everything. Too many people push themselves to the max so that they can buy more things, have the latest gadgets for their kids etc , then they have to earn even more to keep up that lifestyle. All the while they are stressing themselves out and not teaching themselves or their children the value of things or to appreciate the smaller things in life. I’m not spouting this from the lofty heights of being rich or having made it. Far from it.
I wish that there were more hours in the day. I said this a few posts back but there is so much I want to do and there just isnt enough hours in the day.
The second prompt is celebrate a new home. Now this is a rather cheeky but hey ho. I have a Nook and didnt like any of the covers on sale ( or their prices) so I made one . So this is my Nooks new home …..think I can get away with the very loose connection ? lol
Anyway here is Nooks new home I made yesterday
