An Unconventional Birthday ''Wish List''

On the 28th of June, i'll be 28 years old. I've got some beautiful symmetry going on this year with numbers.

Anyway, all too often i see posts about what people want for their upcoming birthdays and when i see them i think to myself 'are you for real'? They want Jo Malone candles and £500 pairs of's your birthday not your fucking coronation! 

For the past 7 years or so, every Christmas and birthday i am asked what i would like present wise and believe me when i say this, there is absolutely nothing i want and i have to really look for something for someone to buy me just so they can say they did buy me something, it's a vicious cycle! I struggled to just think of 2 things i wanted this year...a 64gb memory card and the Christmas specials of Jonathan Creek! Haha

So instead of having physical presents on my wishlist, i would rather have some of my wishes come to fruition instead.

Wish #1 - Get pregnant

Yes ok so i may have over done this and mentioned it in a lot of my posts but this one wish is the one i want to come true so badly. As you all know, i have a beautiful daughter who is now 11 and she is my world. But i'm so ready for another and i have been for a long time now. Me & Carl have been disappointed every month and i just want that bloody pregnancy test to show up positive at least before 2014 comes to an end if not by next month.

Wish #2 - Ease up the migraines

Migraines have been the bane of my life since my early teens and after countless check ups and every migraine medication under the sun, i still haven't found anything that will get rid of them instantly. I just wish they would fuck off!

Wish #3 - Getting a break at work

My job is very demanding and i have a supervisor who pulls a sicky at least once a week which leaves me with a stupid amount of sites to cover. At the end of a working day i'm exhausted and i can't wind down because before i know it, i have a text come through saying there is a cell clean on south bank. I just want a day or even better a week where no one asks me to do any extra work.

Wish #4 - Getting paid travel

I get paid per job i do but i don't get paid for the travel to and from destinations and sometimes, i'm driving upwards of 100 miles a day. It has been a real grievance with the fleet of the company for a long time now. I wish that they would listen to us and start paying for all the bloody driving we do.

Wish #5 - Going away before Christmas

Carl better be reading this because this is aimed at him. I desperately want to have a weekend away somewhere ( preferably London ) just before Christmas. Wether he will make that happen or not i don't know but it's in his hands.

Wish #6 - Saz enjoying Secondary school

Our Sarah starts year 7 at secondary school this year and she's so nervous which is how we all felt when going up to ''big'' school. I wish that everything goes ok for her and she really enjoys it.
