Wishful Thinking

Apart from the customary wishes for world peace, cures for all diseases, enough food for everyone, honest politicians (is that an oxymoron?), and health and happiness for my family and friends, here are my seven wishes and wants:

1. I want to see the Grand Canyon – not sure why, but it’s always been a wish.

2. I want to meet Colin Firth (quick drool) - a dinner date wiht him would be even better, of course.

3. I want a totally reliable computer and internet service – anything going wrong with either sends my blood pressure soaring.

4. I want my whole house redecorated – preferably while I’m not there to be involved in the chaos the whole process causes.

5. I want someone to invent a robot that will do my ironing (and the other boring household jobs, but mostly the ironing).

6. At my age, I want to wake up every morning and know I’m still alive!

7. And, last but not least, I want one of my books to become a NYT best-seller (not too much to ask, is it, huh?)


  1. The Grand Canyon is definitely worth seeing.
    A house cleaning robot would be wonderful, especially if it did the things I don't find time for, like washing windows.
    NYT best seller? Absolutely!

  2. Ah yes, I forgot about the window washing - mine always end up streaky! But the man who cleans my outside windows will also clean the inside ones if I ask him. Wonder if he would do the ironing too?

  3. I like the housecleaning robot idea very much!

  4. Voice-activated, of course - or maybe you could just programme into it each day's jobs?

  5. I don't think a NY Times Bestseller is too much to ask!
