A game of wish miss and hope

My life at the mo seems to be all work and no play which is all a bit pants (but I really shouldn't moan) and whilst I have five minutes to spare I thought I would do a little list of wishes and misses and hopings...just for silliness and because even I'm sick to death of seeing those blessed lupins!

Ok the game...pretty simple for simple minds like mine!

I really wish I hadn't just left that highlighting bleach on my hair for quite so long..YIKES! Tart alert!

I miss blogging and I soooo want to have more time to do it but I hope to do more in the winter

I wish you didn't have to nag at teenage boys so much. Nag, nag, NAG

I really miss my Mondays at home,I don't think my house has been this messy since we moved in!

hmmm .. I hope Harry's revising for those GCSE's..

I wish they wouldn't miss the laundry basket when their dirty washing gets launched across the landing at random moments. IT IS NOT RUGBY GEORGE!!

I hope that's not a cat being sick I can hear..why do they have to come inside to be sick???Is it to show me their latest meal of grass or fur? how nice of them to do so.

I wish teenage boys wouldn't leave the washing up for me to do.Baked beans at lunchtime don't half stink the house out when they are left in the sink in a saucepan all afternoon.YUK!

I miss being that bit thinner and that gorgeous top from Coast not fitting me(and half of my wardrobe for that matter!)

I hope one day I will be thinner so I can wear all those clothes again!!

but I really wish I didn't like cake quite so much...

I miss gardening with firemen (phwoar)

I hope my old truck passes its MOT this month

I wish those noisy magpies wouldn't cackle right outside my bedroom window at 5 in the morning...ooh spiteful birds they are, beautiful in their tux's but what meanies..

I wish I could finish all those niggly little jobs in the house,they'll be in their hundreds soon!
I miss the coaltits and would love them to come back soon

(but I hope the kitties dont eat them when they do)

I wish I hadn't started revamping the vintage deckchairs someone gave me

I'll miss the old fabric already!

but I hope I can find some just as nice

I wish it wasn't going to rain tomorrow.

I do miss having 3 sisters around to do girlie stuff with

I hope my big sister does come and stay really soon HINT, HINT BIG SIS.

I wish the chickens didn't make dust-bath craters everywhere in the garden

I'll miss Harry when he goes off this month with his best buddy on holiday for two weeks

but I hope he has a nice time in France and gets to visit his Grannie and Grandpa who live there.

I wish I could think of more misses and I really hope you're not too bored!

I wish that I hadn't missed the vintage and handmade fair and hope to go to the next one (it looked so much fun!)

I wish I'd charged more for that job on Saturday..what a nightmare,it cost more to do than I earnt! I miss those expensive tree loppers and I hope the new ones last a bit longer!

I wish I could go to Canada have tea with Lisa and see my little brother that I miss, but I hope to see him in September over here yay!

You may have gathered from the date (its actually the 15th of July today not the 5th of June!) I wrote this a while ago, I've been loitering around blogland, reading other blogs and pondering whether to continue with my really isn't very exciting here in the land of Vintage Pretty and shabby at the mo!
Oh and if you are wondering.. Harry did revise and I am missing him whilst hes on his trip, it was the cat being sick, my truck failed its MOT for the first time in 18 years (booo) and had to have its bottom welded (sounds painful) and I did paint and re-cover the deckchairs and funily enough they do look ok.. so no more comedy acts of falling through old fabric in the garden... but that's a whole 'nother post hopefully not as far apart as this one and maybe a little bit more exciting ( with maybe even actual photos of exciting stuff!)


  1. SOOOOOOO pleased to see you back. You always were..sorry, favourite blog to read, the first I ever discovered. Although I am on the other side of the world I miss England, my garden, chickens, charity shops and all the BORING EVERYDAY things.. and I have missed your lovely blog so much. Glad to hear you and family are ok though; I was a tad worried. ps. Your CK wallpaper looks fab with your black fireplace. Bx

  2. I have never commented on your blog before, but I was so glad to see you back, I thought I'd let you know. I enjoy your blog very much and hope you decide to continue.

  3. Lovely to see you back..I think I will have a go at all that wishing!
    Enjoyed reading yours ;-)

  4. Well I'm glad you've decided to continue with your blog,it's one of my favourites. I've neglected mine too this year, just no time and too many hours spent at work, but don't give up, it's lovely to hear what you've been up to and look at your lovely home. Enjoy the summer and I look forward to more posts :)

  5. Continue, continue!!
    Ilove reading your blog, it's the way you write about everyday stuff that I love x

  6. Your blogging is about as regular as mine is at the moment! But as always, yours is a good read - lol - Rachaelxo

  7. Great post, really enjoyed reading it!

  8. Good to see you back...and pleased that everything is ticking along nicely for you :)
    I'm with you re the nagging teenage boys thing!! I'm going to try a new tactic in the hols - no nagging!!!
    Watch this space ;)

  9. Its great to see you back! Id love to see your new and improoved deckchairs (as im sure many other bloggers do) so get out there with your camnera, make a cup of tea, and then sit yourself down and blog about them... PLEEEASE!??!

    wow i sound bossy, sorry, i look forward to nipping back, deckchairs or not!

  10. Well i am glad to see you back and I was damn sick of those lupins too. ;-)
    I agree with so many of your wishes and misses.

    Espiecially the cat sick one. What about the times when you hear a cat throwing up outside your bedroom door in the early hours but you're too tired to get out of bed and deal with it.

    And then when you do stagger out of bed in the morning you have forgotten all about it and promptly tread in it. Oh yes! This has happened to me a fair few times.

    Don't you just love teenage boys?!! I have a 13 year old, doesnt sound as thiough they get better!!
    About the hair, well it should fade a bit after a few washes. It's the summer sunkissed look!

    Have fun : )

  12. Hi Ya,

    it reminds me of me to read about wishing you didn't like cake so much lol

    and chickens having dust baths makes me laugh cos mine used to do that in my mum's garden when i let them out (and eat her plants!) and she used to get annoyed with me!

    I don't have any teenage boys, but you are scaring me, cos my four y ear old makes quite enough mess already!

  19. Your blog is one of my absolute favorites! I've never commented before, but I just wanted to let you know that you do have a beautiful blog here. I get so inspired to be more creative in my own home by all the lovely things you do in yours. From the USA, Mrs. M

  20. I can relate to so many things in your post!

    Glad May's knickers made you laugh.

    Lisa x

  22. Just popped in to say hi!xx

  23. Its great to see you back!!

    C'mon explain the chair, the fireplace and the patchwork throw!

  24. Hello sweetness what a pretty post, I loved reading all your little tales :)

    And love the wallpaper, you may know Miss. Poppins has it in her attic bedroom, always brings a smile to my face when I go in :)



  25. Oh how fab to hear from you Sairer!! Really missed your fun posts and the gorgeous pictures so thansk especially from me for that first one especially. I'd love to curl up in that cosy chair! Bet the deckchairs are beautiful - show us soon.

    Hope life isn't too tricksy and you get to play a bit more soon.

  26. I empathise and with quite a few of your misses and wishes. What is the difficulty with the laundery basket, even my husband cannot operate it!

    Lovely image.

  27. I so understand what you are talking about.I can make a list just like yours and many of the things on mine would be simular to your. The cats are always sick on the carpets here and not on the tile. Luckely the teenage boy is gone here but I am in fear of what is coming when dear hubby will stop working.I fear I will have another teenage boy in the house!
    My big regrets are that I never learned to drive a car, that I stopped working when I did and that I have so little hair and I wished I was 50 pound lighter!! But how not? It lightens the hart when you can have a little mown.
    Loved you blog!!

  28. never highlight your own hair ( although saying that, most hairdressers in our area are not any better than I am at doing it myself!)....teenage boys are a pain in the bum...period. but we do love them anyway... its easier to lose weight in the warm weather so don't blame yourself, its the weather's fault... old trucks are better than new so worth the extra effort...I want to see the deckchairs, they are not easy to do but worth the effort eventually...Keep a water squirter for squirting the chickens, I do and it works when they are somewhere I dont want them to be! Lovely ( and very amusing!) to read whats been going on with you. bye for now.

  29. Please don't go away. I don't get the chance to visit often but I do enjoy it when I do!
    OH & a PS .... Gardening with Firemen?? ..... think that seaerves a post!

  30. I'm with you on the teenage boy thing. I've had two daughters and my baby boy is 17 its like being on a rollercoaster with him. My mantra is he will come good, he will come good. He a lovely boy but sooooooo lazy (spolit maybe)
    yes I think so. New to blogging pop over and say hello.

  31. just discovered your blog and love your style. please dont stop ......

  32. Good to hear from you Sairer. Some pics of those deck chairs would be good! It'll only take a minute.... go on.......xx While you're at it, pics of firemen wouldn't go a miss......

  33. Hiya,

    It was like the end of an eira, but then she did seem to get quite ill so better to not be in pain.

    They are the cutest little things. So gentle, delicate and graceful, not like Jerry who bish, bash boshes around the garden tearing the place up! :-)

  34. I am sorry that I have missed your blog for such a long time.. too much going on in my life these days. I hope you were happy with your parcel from M & D? I wish you a very happy summer Sairer and look forward to seeing you at the V & H in November.

    Michele aka Dottie xx
