This is... what I want


A baby. How I really want a baby.

A house. Somewhere that is all my own, somewhere I don't have to pack up and move out of. Somewhere I can paint the walls and change around as I like. Somewhere with a small yard and big trees.

A dog. Preferably another Standard Poodle or a Standard Poodle cross.

Don't get me wrong, I love my life in Japan and if I could have these here, I would. But that's not looking possible right now, so this is what I'm working towards, and these are the lifestyle changes that are hopefully not too far away.

Thank you to Angela who had us choose our own themes for this weeks This is….

It's so beautiful you've illustrated these things through kids drawings, it makes it reminiscent of the things we wanted when we were actually kids... probably all the same things, but maybe with a prima-ballerina picture thrown in for what I want to be when I grow up...

That top drawing is awesome. It instantly reminded me of a questions I was asked by my friend's 2 1/5 year old daughter recently...
"flossy, do you have a baby living in your tummy house?" :D

My reply?
"No, my tummy house is still vacant, waiting for the perfect tenant to move in".


Hope your perfect tenant applies soon ;)

p.s. I just saw your comment asking about the pic in my "happy" post. It's from a tiled mosaic, with all sorts of amazing 3D elements included at Nambucca Heads (just sth of coffs harbour). It's made to look like a set of waves, but has plates and mugs, flower pots and all sorts of porcelain figurines glued in. It's really incredible. I have a bigger photo of it here:

Perfect theme, Melanie! I hope you get everything you want. I don't think you are asking for too much!

I hope you get all three Melanie :)

Agree with all of the above - really thoughtful theme (and yes, I too want some of those things you've listed....).

Hope these wonderful things become part of your life in the near future.

I am almost teary about the baby one.

May your dreams come true in due time.
