In less than 24 hours, Christmas morning will dawn, friends and family will greet each other warmly, gifts and goodwill will be exchanged, children will wreak havoc and small dogs will run amuck. Lovers will kiss under the mistletoe and old couples will cuddle on the sofa, when they think no-one is watching. A tonne of turkey-lamb-ham-duck will be served up, a staggering number of Christmas pudding will be tossed out, and mothers the world over will require several glasses of sherry before 12noon. Without a doubt, there'll be tears and laughter, but, as crazy as this holiday season is, it's worth it in the end, non? Certainment.
At this time of the year, I love the quietness between the craziness. Those calm moments where you sit back and ponder the year that was, and the year that you wished for. Generally speaking, I find this type of reflection can be wildly enhanced by a glass of mulled wine, or champers. Up to you, of course! This Christmas, I wish for a great many things, and I can't wait to see the excitement on Scribe Junior's face as he opens his presents. I wish my family and I didn't live so far apart, and I wish my mother would suddenly, magically remember international timezones when she picks up that phone to call me, on Christmas morning, my time. And, secretly, I wish for a long, long cuddle with someone special.
I hope Santa delivers that new Dior handbag, a sparkly pair of heels, oh, and if he could arrange that date with Tom Hardy. Or, Bradley Cooper, that would be great. Both unlikely, but I'm putting it out there. Again. Also, I'm wishing away Brad Pitt's god-awful hair and his Chanel no 5 advert. We're all in agreement on that one, right? Why oh why, Brad?
Mostly, though, as cliche as it sounds, I really do wish for world peace! Yes, I do. This year has seen some incredibly shocking events take place which, if I could, I would, wish them away in an instant. Well, these are my Christmas wishes, it's probable that only one of these will come true, but hell, you can't stop a girl from hoping.
If you could have one wish granted this year, what would it be?
