If You Could Have One Wish Granted, What Would It Be?



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?

A/N:  Thank you to everyone who has stopped by and read my posts this year,  I wish you all a wonderful festive season!  May Love, Peace and Happiness feature widely in your holidays. - Talei xox

  2. One wish? So difficult. I'd say I wish to not have to worry about finances ever again. :)

    Hope you get all your wishes, Talei! Especially those heels. I know I've got a pair under my tree right now and it's taking lots of willpower not to open. ;)

  5. I'm not altruistic this year (although wishing away people who mass murder innocents really does top my list). I would wish all my debt paid so my paycheck is productive :)

    Have a Merry Christmas Talei. Your wishes are simple and realistic :)

  6. Merry Christmas SWEETS! My dear Talei, I hope you get what you wish for. Mostly the DIOR, HEELS, and someone to Cuddle with. Sadly, WORLD PEACE is something I don't think we will ever see. Unrest has been going on for thousands of years.

    BUT, we must enjoy the small blessings in life. Good friends, family, a child's smile, a puppy's wagging tail, a kitty's purr, a periwinkle blue sky, and our health.

    My Christmas wish is a simple one. A cure for the dreaded CANCER ... ALL OF IT! I have lost my family and many close friends to this horror. I hear of many cases each day and I feel helpless. What does one say? How does one comfort an inflicted person?

    But, as always, I try to console with a positive air. There is ALWAYS HOPE... WE must NEVER give up.

    On that note, stay lovely Talei, Stay safe. And above all stay HAPPY and HEALTHY... that is what I REALLY wish for you.

    1. Hello Beautiful! I hope you had a fabulous Christmas!! I'm going to have to work on those heels, the new year sales, perhaps? ;-)

      I love your wish, definitely we must find a cure for cancer. I'm not sure how you ease someone's pain, I've watched friends and family deal with cancer in different ways but I'm always amazed by their acceptance. Just incredibly brave souls and yes, it breaks my heart every time. Lets hope there is a cure.

      Wishing you peace and health and happiness!! Keep smiling Beautiful! xo
