I want some very simple things Unfortunately, these simple things are really not very simple to obtain. But I am working towards them.
I would very much like a little house in the country. A little house that comes with a large wardrobe, a big shed, and a very big garden.
I currently live in a house that I rent. It is a small house in an estate, with a tiny garden and a tiny shed. I am saving money so I can hopefully get a mortgage for a better house.
I suppose you could say that I am saving for my sanity. I really mislike where I live now. I mislike it to the point of madness. I'm sort of joking about that, but not really.
This is why I want what I want...
I would like a very big garden for my dogs. I would ideally like the garden to have some mature trees in it. I would like if my dogs had trees to wee on. I think my dogs running outside every day and weeing on trees would be ever so cute.
Also, I love climbing trees. It is one of the best feelings in the world to pull yourself up into a tree and be surrounded by leaves. It's like being in a green bubble - if it's summertime.
I have two dogs now, a big dog, and a small dog. They are both idiots, and I love them more than life itself. If I had a very big garden I would get three more dogs. I think five dogs is a perfect amount of dogs to have.
I would like a big shed to work in. The shed would have to be one of those clean sheds, with electricity and a proper floor. Not a dirty shed, with a floor made of the simple earth.
I make candles for a living now. Which is nice for me, and pays the rent. So I would need a big shed so that I could have one half of it for 'candling'.That's what I call my work. I know that it is not an official term, but I enjoy saying it.
The other half of the shed would be used by my partner. He makes all sorts of things, mostly clay models. He is very talented and clever and lovely and strong. And annoying. ;-)
I would need a large wardrobe because, although I wear jeans, t-shirts, hoodies and converse almost all of the time, I have a stupid amount of clothes. Mostly dresses and shoes and nice tops and skirts. I love them all, but when I wear them I feel weird and overdressed and self conscious, so I don't wear them very often. But I would like a wardrobe to put them in. At the moment they are in underbed storage bags.
And I would like a little house to live in. I and my daughter and my partner would be very happy in a little house if it had a large wardrobe, a big shed and a very big garden. That would be lovely.
What would make you happy? I would really like to know.
I think most people just want the simple things.
And then some people want lots of money and shiny cars.
