Dear Universe, dear Genie in the lamp who says ‘your wish is my command’… this is what I wish for right now.
I wish for a little bit of boring… a little bit of normality…
I would like calm, no upsets… no deaths, no broken bones, no emotional outbursts, no nastiness.
I wish for weekday routine… a simple, single school run, with fun tunes on the radio, my boys happy, munching apples.
I wish for weekend routine with football, rugby, lie ins, car washing and Friday night in the pub, Saturday night out and Sunday family cinema.
I wish for a simple life, James happy in a steady job, no dramas, no long commute, no staying away.
I wish for simple, silly, family holidays… walks on the beach or gentle skiing, sandcastles or snowballs… the sun. Just the sun and the warmth. I don’t care where.
Just for 6 months… or even a few months.
And then maybe the adventures can begin again.. for the Big Man anyway…
But right now… for me.. just some calm, some certainty…. Some boring.
That is all.
