Blog of the Week: When I grow up

Blog_of_the_week_badgeIt’s Wednesday again, which of course means that it’s Blog of the Week time again here on the Netmums Blog. We are delighted to bring you this wonderful post by I know, I need to stop talking. There are one or two that we can identify with – what about you?


When I Grow Up….

I will have a cagoule.ironing queen

I will select shoes to purchase based on a criteria list of affordability, practicality and durability, as opposed to lustworthiness, beauty and desire.

I will clean my windows.

I will stop caring quite so much.

I will learn what that flashing red light means on my car dashboard.

I will learn to garden.

I will work out that life is not quite as simple as dividing everyone into the ‘goody’ or the ‘baddie’ category.

I will properly enjoy eating olives.

I will iron.

I will always moderate my behaviour on an even keel, as opposed to snapping from 0 to 60 in less than a nanosecond.gardening

I will never shout at my children.

I will stop worrying so much about needing to be liked.

I will keep my clothes on in public.

I will always have spare towels for visitors.

I will purchase a pair of slippers.

I will learn to make small talk. (Small talk which isn’t solely about me.)

I will find out what a catalytic converter is.

I will try to find the shades of grey. (No, not those shades of grey, you weirdoes.)

I will stop hating.

I will learn to cook a roast chicken.

I will drink rarely, in moderation, and always at Government recommended levels.

I will have a sewing box.sewing box

I will buy Christmas/birthday presents more than 24 hours in advance of the event itself.

I will have pants without holes in them.

I will not live entirely in my overdraft.

I will try and get things a little bit more right.

When I grow up.
