No, a bit further south. You don't live in Carrville do you? My brother lived there a while back, worked in Seaham and I lost track of the amount of break ins on High Street.

I would like at the minute a Stainless Steel Steam Juicer, I am going to try and use my Tefal one, but thats what I would like.

I would also like a 50ft Poly Tunnel all staged out erected in the footing I dug in March.

I am absolutely FANTASTICALLY HAPPY that I have now a functioning composting Toilet and a wonderfull Log Shed built next to the Lounge with the Wood burner, which has a lovely new connecting door so that I can stay dry and get logs in the winter!! Basically I am happy with what I have.

I do so love that quote, something like " Happiness is wanting what you have, not having what you want"

No I won't use a smiley because I've decided to turn into Boboff, as he's turned all nice all of a sudden. Grumble grumble.

Quite simply I'd like less. Less 'things', less hassle, less stress, less constraints.

Oh, and for the hubby to want less too (...but I'm working on that one :wink: ).

A room of my own. I love my family, but with my husband upstairs playing loud music and downstairs full of teenagers, that leaves me with...the kitchen! I'd like a studio/library with no phone and no tv, a sink, lots of storage space and shelves and lots of light.
On the other hand, sometimes what I'd really like is to remember how lucky I am. If I'm feeling low its so easy to focus on what I haven't got, and imagine that if I had it all my problems would be solved.

Things I'd like...

Hmmm, new quiet neighbors, a small greenhouse, an allotment,
small coal forge and anvil,the ability to speak French.

Working on most of the above,although that French is far from getting there... :lol:

I'd like the ability to see only what's important rather than being bombarded by what the newspapers, radio and society decide is important,
A bigger garden with higher fences (there is a 4' limit on this former 100% council estate),
More energy (physical and mental - I'm permamently exhausted!),
A source of water other than United Futilities,
And a cure for my sugar addiction, having beaten all my other ones!
We all have two gifts we should try to use as much as possible - imagination and humour.
Imagination compensates us for what we are not.
A sense of humour consoles us for what we are.
And wisdom tells us not to worry about it!

A better work/life balance and more time/energy to enjoy the things I do.
Has anyone seen the plot, I seem to have lost mine?
