All I Want For Christmas

Is to be famous.

No not really, but I could certainly handle being a little more well known so please feel free to share and tweet with all your friends.

A little while ago Essentially Jess shared with her #IBOT faithfuls her Christmas wish list. She then tagged the lucky five blogger of the mo's to share their own Christmas desires. From there, there has been a tagging frenzy that has seen some of the most heart touching Christmas wish lists ever.

Santa sure has his work cut out for him. In case you are interested a few of my favourites can be found at


Anyway the very very lovely Kirsty over at My Home Truths, thought it would be nice if I share with one and all my heart's desires this festive season. As I started pondering over this I began to wonder if I had taken the time to do a similar list last year. Turns out I had. It is interesting to see how things have changed, yet also stayed oh so the same.

I am rather glad though that this year I don't feel so much of a need to get Santa to change things about me. Like a new haircut and clothes. I am still totally in love with my new do that I got at the start of November. Though part of me wants to go back to the hairdresser, just cause she is such an awesome kind of lady.

So what do I want this year?

I would really love for someone to
digitalparentsbutton

My airplane ticket has been purchased, accommodation is sorted. The last teeny tiny detail left to sort is the ticket to the conference itself.

If by chance you are interested in helping me out in that department, I promise you would get your monies worth. Your brand would be mentioned left, right, and centre from now until well after the said event. Ok that may be a slight exaggeration but I do assure you a fair deal and value for money. Feel free to check out my advertising page

While I am making crazy bloggy wishes, I would also like to be able to just drop everything and write the moment the urge hits. Regardless of dishes that may need doing, washing waiting to be hung or hungry mouths waiting to be fed. They could all just be put on the back burner the instant I am inspired and have something to say. They could also just wait there patiently for me till I was done and ready to return from the realm of writing.

Sigh

One of the things that hasn't changed over the last twelve months is my ability to keep house. Or perhaps lack there of. Since I didn't get my desired visit from Mary Poppins last year I am going to try for something a bit different this year.

This year I wish for a
Cleaning Fairy

How awesome would that be? Even if she was just a dishes fairy I would be over the moon. 

Of course I can hear Mr Awesome reading this and saying that rather than a fairy, or her magic wand, which would be my next request if a fairy were unavailable I should just give in to his desire for one of these

But I just don't want one. And besides you still need some fool to constantly pack and unpack it. Don't need one of them if you have a cleaning fairy now do you?

Next on my Christmas wish list for 2012 is for breast cancer, actually all cancer, be a thing of the past. In the past week I have heard of two beautiful women diagnosed with this dreadful disease. Breaks my heart. I know that they are both two super tough cookies and will take this battle head on, but I also know I would rather they didn't have too. I wish that no one would have to.

But sadly that is just not the way the world works. At least not at the moment.

One thing I do really really really want is for my girls to have happy and full lives. Ones where they know not of serious worry. Are free from serious harms, including the likes of school yard and cyber bullies. Ones where they feel nothing but love and give out nothing but kindness and compassion above all else.

And my last wish for this year is that my book was more than just a concept in my head. More than just jumbled words floating around in the vacuum space of my mind. More than just a heartbroken memory that I once had on a dodgy usb stick. 

So there you have it, all I want for Christmas 2012. Gleefully joining with a brilliant little post that quickly gathered momentum over at Essentially Jess

Who just happens to be the hostest with the mostest for Aussie blogging's favourite Tuesday link up #IBOT! 

Which of course this post is joining in with, because it is Tuesday and I have blogged! Not only that but I just love a bit of comment love, makes sure you are out sharing as well.

Oh and since this is the last IBOT for the year I would like to wish all IBOTters a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. May they both be filled with fairy wishes, butterfly kisses and plenty of cheer.

    Merry Christmas and a fabulous New Year.

  2. I hope your wish #3 comes true - but more realistically, that you at least get a dishwasher. Having never wanted one, it's now something I can't survive without!

    1. I am still not convinced with a dishwasher. I just think it creates laziness. Yes I know not doing the dishes is lazy as well but that is a different kind of lazy

  3. Sponsorship would be an awesome present. I hope your wishes are granted. Rachel xx

  4. Thank you so much for acknowledging my blog as one of your favourites. I have gone all warm and fuzzy!! I too, love your blog as I think you have guessed by now :)
    I do hope your wish for your girls comes true (I have the same for my boy).

  5. I am with you. I wish cancer - all of it - to be a thing of the past, too. Far too many people I know fighting it, and it freaks me out, wondering when it will be my turn to fight it. I feel like it's "when" not "if" at this point! I'd love all your wishes to come true. Especially that one.

  10. Oh man, I am so totally with you on the eradicate cancer thing. I've watched too may people fight it, win or lose and it's just so freaking unfair!

    Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you too!

    1. Yep it is a tough one isn't it. But then I am sure if it wasn't there, there would probably be something else.

  11. Rhianna, I am just shocked to hear that you don't WANT a dishwasher. I can't live without mine! It sounds horribly prim but I just think they are the best thing ever. I do love your wishes though, if only getting rid of cancer was that easy.
    And thank you for the plug! Very sweet. Made my day xx

    1. My pleasure lovely, it was such a great post. It is hard to explain my feelings about the dishwasher, I felt the same about the dryer as well. It feels like they are just an excessive use of electricity. Mind you I did love the dryer while we had it, and lo and behold there have even been times when I wished we still had it. Mind you I doubt I will agree to buy another anytime soon

  12. A merry christmas and happy new year to you Rhianna. I hope if not all, some of your wishes come true.

  15. What I wouldn't do for a cleaning fairy!

    May all your wishes come true, sweet Rhi x

  16. Thank you for mentioning my list Rhianna! I'm glad you liked it! I'm just curious, why don't you want a dishwasher? As for your book, start writing! I want to know what it's all about and I want to read it!

    ReplyDelete
  17. All the best with sponsorship! And if you do get a cleaning fairly, wanna share?

    Merry Christmas x

  18. This cleaning fairy is going to have her work cut out for her next year isn't she? When she has finished at yours and everyone elses if she is not too tired could she pop on over to my house too. Much appreciated!
    I can't beleive you dont want a dishwasher, I couldn't live without mine. (well obviously I could, but I don't want to and thats the point!!! :-) )
    Have a lovely Christmas.

  19. Fingers crossed for sponsorship for you!
    But I'm really with you on no bullying. My first born starts school in 2013 and I've very scared of all those mean kids that will take advantage of her sweet, naive nature. She's one of the youngest in her year and I fret about it a lot.
    Have a great Xmas!
