Blogfest 2012 - Are you living your dream?

Today’s host for Blogfest 2012 is Corinne at  The writing prompt for today is:
Are you living your dream?
This is a good one for this weekend, as I am gearing up to having a decorator here for the next two weeks, repainting all my upstairs rooms, plus the hallway, stairs and landing. In addition, once the decorating is done, I am getting a new carpet for my study. So for the next few weeks, my life will be total chaos, as I have to clear clutter from each room in turn so that the decorator can actually get to the walls. Even worse will be emptying my study in readiness for the carpet fitter –I have so much stuff in here, I have no idea where I am going to put it all!
If I was living my dream, I’d hand the house key to the decorator and take a long holiday preferably somewhere nice and warm, where I could sit out on a terrace with an ice-cold drink and preferably a view of the ocean – somewhere like Florida would be perfect, or maybe the Bahamas, or even Cyprus or Crete. And then I’d come home to find everything done and dusted, and some fairy godmother would have waved a wand to get everything straight and tidy in my study (as well as all the cables back into my computer!).
Hmm, that’s not going to happen, is it?

  1. that sounds like that show House Makeover or whatever it know, where they send the family to Disney World or something and they come home to a brand new house? My dream too.

  2. More of a nightmare, I think, Claudia!

    Oh, if only, Sandra! :-)

  3. I wish it could happen for you :) but life is tough, so best of luck.

  4. You can always hire someone to clean too! But look at it this way, once it is done, you won't have to do it again and everything will look great! :-)

  5. how great would that be.. leave and come back to a refreshed place... but in the end, i am sure you'll enjoy the new look...

  6. You know-- I like that dream. I'd meet you in Florida-- and I'd buy the drinks :) LOL. We can always dream!!

    Cheers, Jenn

  7. Good luck with the decorating. The dream sounds good - I used to wish that each time I moved.
