I’ve seen lots of different gift guides and Christmas wish lists on other blogs. They’ve got me thinking about my own Christmas wish list. I’m really not a stuff person and find I’m even less into things as I get older. I can count the possessions that I really treasure on one hand. The real magical presents are things that money can’t buy. Here’s my magic Christmas wish list (heavily inspired by kids TV and films).
The tidying up creatures from Cinderella
Forget handsome Disney princes one of my favourite things about Disney movies are the little creatures that pop up and do chores. I’m thinking of the little birds in Cinderella and the mice that help her out with the housework. Some little helper creatures would be completely amazing! They could swoop in and clean up all of the everyday mess that happen in our house every five minutes (the dropped cereal, the spilt drinks and all of the rest).
Driverless car, like Herbie
I set myself a challenge this year to learn to drive. Sadly I failed my driving test recently. I am determine to keep on trying but it will have to be my goal for 2016 instead. In the meantime I’d love to have a car that can drive itself. Not a Google drone type of car but a really cute one with lots of personality like Herbie. This would get around my lack of driving license but it would also be fun to hang out with the family on the way to places.
Rosie the robot maid from the Jetsons
I’m slightly disappointed that the modern world is not like the Jetsons yet. I love the idea of flying cars and loads of house hold gadgets. Most of all I would love to have the robot house maid from this show. She could do all the cooking so I could spend the time playing with my kids. This would be so much better than the kids trashing the living room while I’m trying to make dinner (which happens daily).
Johnny Five reading ability (from Short Circuit)
I realise that this might not be the most well known film (a 1986 classic!) but I loved it when I was younger. The main character is a robot called Johnny Five. One of the things he can do is flick the pages of a book in front of his eyes really fast to read it (there must be you tube clips). I absolutely love reading but only get tiny pockets of time to do it so this kind of speed reading ability would be perfect.
Magic remote control
My life is happy chaos – days are noisy, busy and full on. There is always something happening, something that needs doing or somewhere we are rushing to. I’d love to press pause on my magic remote every so often to have five minutes of calm, just to breath, gather my thoughts and regroup. Or maybe I could use it to get myself an extra hour in the day that only I know about. That way I’d be able to keep on top of everything and to recharge a bit.
