The Things I Would If I Could

things i would

Sharing is caring!

A few weeks ago I was tagged by one of my favourite bloggers Laura Summers from Laura’s Lovely Blog to write a blog post called, “If I Could”. Thankyou Laura. I always enjoy writing these fun style posts. It’s taken a little while to get around to it but here is my post!

If I could live anywhere

I would live 6 months in the UK and 6 months in New Zealand. My parents and siblings live in New Zealand as well as many wonderful friends whom I miss dearly. However, I also have people in the UK who are very dear to me and prefer the English culture. I’m torn between two worlds. In New Zealand I’d live in the countryside on the outskirts of Hamilton (close to where Hobbitville was filmed) and in the UK I would live on the outskirts of my current village in a home surrounded by fields.

If I could have any home

It would be a modern style home. I’d have a massive house with about 6 bedrooms, so all my family and friends could pop over and visit. I’d also have a blogging room/office all for myself, a play/games/family room a large kitchen, a bathroom with a bath (we don’t have a bath) and a space for a dining table for family meals. Oh and it would have to be painted in neutral colours and decorated with the help of Esther.

If I could have any garden

I would have a large section. Big enough for a play area with equipment. I’d also have a space for farming chickens, growing lots of vegetables and a covered outside area for having bbq’s and family get togethers. (Realistically i’m not well enough for stuff like this but a girl can dream).

If I could be on holiday right now

I would go to the Maldives. This is the dream honeymoon destination for John and I. Relaxing in the Sunshine, drinking healthy smoothies, having spa treatments and resting. It would be a dream come true. We have not been on our honeymoon as I became unwell the week after the wedding and we married in school/term time.

If I could have any Job

I would be the caller in a criminal court, who deals with Juries and sits in the court cases. I love to hear court cases and could do this all day every day. Some might find this boring but I find it fascinating. The only problem is I wouldn’t have much time to blog as much as I do.

If I could have any Talent

The thing is I have lots of talents and I’m happy with the one’s I have. I’d love to become really good at sewing. That would be useful!

If I could live any day again

I would relive the day before I married my first husband when I felt upset and started to question if it was the right thing to do. Of course everyone including my X talked me into it and said I just had the jitters but….If i could relive it, I would have bought myself a ticket to the UK aged 20 and never looked back!

If I could have any superpower

I would be invisible as I could go anywhere I wanted for free without any cost!

  1. This is a fun post. I’m so with you on the chickens! I was going to get some and then I found out I was having the twins and I realised it was just completely unrealistic.

    1. Ha Ha! My dad has chickens and it’s just so useful! Free protein and a fun daily activity to keep fit, sorting out the chickens and feeding them etc! Sylvia loved it when she was a baby!

  2. These type of posts are great for many reasons but one of them being that they make you sit down and think about all these subjects that you might have not thought about if you wouldn’t have been tagged by someone else! I’m wondering myself how would I answer these questions! 🙂

  3. What a fun post! I’d also love a big garden and with chickens and a great play area and tree house for the boys. Any holiday right now where I could laze on the beach would be perfect to combat my sleep deprivation

  4. I would also love to have a six bedroom house with plenty of space to move around and not feel as though we are on top of each other. For a talent, I would love to be able to sing as I sound like a strangled cat.

  5. I love reading posts like this! It’s inspiring to hear about other people’s favourite things or dreams. Always makes me want to sit down and do the same 🙂

  6. Great idea for a post. I really enjoyed reading it. I’m lucky enough to have been to the Maldives and would go back in a heartbeat! Never been to New Zealand though and would love to. It looks so beautiful.

  7. Ah I love this post! I love learning more about bloggers with tags like this. What a cool job you would have!! I’d never be able to do anything like that xx

    1. It is fun to write these! Thanks for stopping by Working in a court would be interesting! I love the psychology of how people work. I guess it’s why I love blogging so much too!

  8. What a great idea for a post, now you habe me dreaming about 6 bed houses and the courts!! Ha ha! Lovely post, I’ve never visited new Zealand but my husband has and he loved it!

    1. Oh I’m sure eventually we will get to go. It’s one step at a time… got to get my health sorted first and then…. life will be even better than it all ready is! I hope to go on a fab honeymoon sometime! Angela xx

  9. Such a lovely post Angela and thank you for the tag! Love the idea of living 6 months in NZ and 6 months here. I do hope you get to go to the Maldives, that would be amazing. And I totally agree about the invisibility – there’s so many advantages I might even have to pinch that one for me! x
