I have given this blog prompt a lot of thought. It’s a big thing isn’t it – isn’t it? So this is my take on the whole thing.
Dreams. Well, I have a dream… A dream of one day writing an actual book, you know a real one with chapters and everything! A book that might even leave my computer and be published with a sparkly cover. And people might actually want to read it and pay money for it!
That’s been my dream since I was a little girl, inspired by my obsession with the wonderful literary genius that was Enid Blyton. I have written countless short stories and planned endless novels. But as yet the only outlet for my writing is this blog. Who knows one day I might write a whole proper book and be brave enough to let someone else have a peek at it. Or maybe a short story …
For my family, my dream is like most of us parents who have responded to this blog prompt. I dream that they will all live long, healthy, happy and successful lives. That they don’t have to worry too much about money. I hope that they all have jobs that they enjoy and have loving families of their own.
On a purely selfish level, I hope that they have partners that I get on with, other wise those idyllic family gatherings might be a bit awkward!
I hope my husband finds a job a bit nearer to home so that he will stop moaning about his long drive and I hope that my children will start sleeping through the night so that grumpy, tired mummy can become happy nice mummy a bit more often.
And I hope that my next door neighbours accidentally break both their stereo and television so that I don’t have to sit and feel as though I am in fact watching their TV or listening to their music when I relax of an evening.
One final hope is that the cat that constantly poos outside our back door has his comeuppance…
