I want. . .






















I have a list...a long list of wants. (Don't worry, I am not going to list them all here!)

Some seem so simple, others so very silly...but still...

I want...

A nice big comfy bed to sleep in, sheathed in soft cool cotton sheets. How wonderful it would feel, to lie on a bed of grand size again, to lie on my tummy, spreadeagled, and not have my legs and arms hanging over the sides. How delightful it would feel to find an airy firmness beneath me. How amazing to be able to turn over and not fear falling off of the mattress.


I want...

An allover body massage, I want to feel oil spread over my body, and to feel each muscle starting from the base of my skull and ever downward loosened, relaxed, turned into liquid putty.

I want...

To soak in a huge jacuzzi, filled with bubbling hot water, the air filled with the rising steam, a cool glass of wine sitting near by, reveling in the luxury of it all as my body and mind soak it all in.

I want...

A cup of hot Chicken with Rice soup, 6 saltine crackers, and a cup of tea laced with honey that will soothe my aching throat.

I want...

A cool hand placed just so across my brow, I want to feel those same fingers smoothing back my hair. Over and over again, until I fall into a soft, contented gentle sleep.

I want...

To be taken care of...

Sigh...

I hate colds!

Sorry you aren't feeling well. How about making that list of all of your wants, and then, this time next year, we'll go over them and see how many you have reached!

sorry to hear you're sick. I feel the same way about beds. I can put up with all kinds of other stuff, but I like a nice bed. I love sleeping.
Take care sweetie.

Oh, you poor dear! Methinks you could use a good cuddling.

Whisky, sugar and hot water. It works for me......... especially after the third one! Hope you're better soon.

SD - Here take this lemsip and relax while I run you an aromatic bath, plump up your pillows and warm up the bed before tiucking you in for a deep peaceful sleep. Hope you feel better soon

If I was close enough I'd plump up your pillows, make you chicken soup from scratch and give you just enough company that it's good without being overbearing :)

Feel better soon sweet woman!

jac,
What a good idea, I may attempt to put that list to paper, tuck it away, and perhaps, the three of us can revisit it a year from now, to see how far I have come, along with you and Fi as well...a doable dream?

deb,
With spending almost 3 whole days in bed, I am wishing even harder for a bigger better one! Thank you.

jon,
Methinks, I agree...is that an offer ~grin~

Ian,
After 3 of those, I would not be feeling anything! Is that the plan?
And thank you too.

d,
No fair...there is no blog on your profile for me to visit...and here I sit sick, and bored! Your plan sounds lovely, just what the doctor ordered...but what is a lemsip? Tasty I hope. Thank you too, for the good wishes.

Fi,
Ah, darling woman, you would make a perfect nurse, that too sounds lovely...I am finally on an antibiotic so hopefully 24 hours or less will see me better than I have been for some time.
