What would they be and why?

How do you think the changes would impact your life?

If we are doing selfish wishes:

I wish I had met my fiancé when I was younger so we could have shared some of the amazing experiences I have had in the past.

I wish I didn't have to work so hard at staying slim. Worrying about food and always feeling guilty about it really blights my life.

I wish my family members who had died were still alive, for obvious reasons. In particular that they had lived to meet the new generation of the family.

1. That me and my family would have a long healthy life
2. Would not worry about money
3.That when I'm gone my children will be ok.

1. Ban anyone else from having my first name

2. Dream bars to exist again

3. Decent weather for my anniversary camping trip next week

Birdsgottaf1y Wed 29-Mar-17 22:22:04

I would wish to be well enough to go back to work and the gym.

I wish that my eldest DD would finally go NC with her abusive ex.

I wish that a close family members depression would lesson, so she can function as she used to.

The rest we can do for ourselves.

Gazelda Wed 29-Mar-17 22:22:55

Health and happiness for my DD.
To be a healthy weight forever more.
To be able to rewind and re-live the past 11 years.

User1635974 Wed 29-Mar-17 22:23:47

I would wish for 100 more wishes grin Or is that cheating?

Chasingsquirrels Wed 29-Mar-17 22:23:54

Real honest to god proper wishes that could make impossible things happen?
I just want one.
My husband back alive and well and to live healthily with me to a ripe old age.

Iamthedogsmother Wed 29-Mar-17 22:24:41

To wish my mu was still alive.
To wish my dad was healthy.
Good health for my family.

Today.......I just wish I could disappear

annandale Wed 29-Mar-17 22:27:28

The skills to hand make my own shoes that really fit (without having to train for years as a cobbler)

A personal train carriage I could attach to any train I wanted to go on

The ability to do a simple gymnastic routine on the beam (again without having to practise at all or to be 14 years old - something of a theme here)

A night with Damon Albarn

OuchBollocks Wed 29-Mar-17 22:28:08

Right now I would wish
1. To he fully mobile instead of slowly rehabilitating my badly broken leg and needing a frame to get around with
2. For my 4 week old DS to not be in hospital with bronchiolitis
3. For lots and lots of lovely restful sleep for my whole family

Hopefully 1 and 2 will have fallen into place in the near future so they would, with any luck, be wastes of wishes. I'll stick with Wish 3 though, everything is easier if everyone is well rested.

seagreengirl Wed 29-Mar-17 22:28:34

That my DC would always be happy

That I could live in a house by the sea

That DH and I would live long healthy lives and then die at the same time

(obviously if I had real wishes it would be for an end to poverty etc)

TedEriksen Wed 29-Mar-17 22:29:45

1) a happy, moral, productive, tolerant and prosperous world for my daughters and nephews to grow up in;
2) an end to the politics of division;
3) a 50-inch Sony Bravia HD TV

Flyinggeese Wed 29-Mar-17 22:31:04

For my family and to have long and happy lives, including my mum (too late, impossible request)
To re-do my studies and re-train/have taken a more specialist career path.
Lurpak's problems to be solved. flowers brew

Fresta Wed 29-Mar-17 22:31:39

1. That I and my nearest and dearest live long, happy healthy lives.
2. That George Michael be alive, well and happy.
3. Peace.

80sMum Wed 29-Mar-17 22:35:35

1. World peace.
2. Fairly paid employment for everyone and an end to absolute poverty.
3. A cure for cancer.

Clawdy Wed 29-Mar-17 22:35:43

That my DS and his lovely partner will have the baby they long for.
A huge lottery win for me so I could set up all the DC with their own homes, and I could have a secure old age.
That I would never develop any form of dementia as I grow old, or any condition that would be debilitating.

BrieAndChilli Wed 29-Mar-17 22:36:36

1. To not be so hairy. Then I would not have to spend a proportion of every day plucking and waxing and emulating. And I would also not have spots on my chin etc from ingrown hairs.

2. To have realised when I went to uni that my dram career was event management. I would then have changed degree instead of dropping out and then been able to forge a career when I had the time to spend late nights and weekends working (3 small kids makes that impossible and I don't want to miss out on them growing up)

3. That I'd been born into a family that loved me and gave me the childhood I deserved (instead of being neglected, put into foster care, adopted, beaten by adoptive mother, who then had an affair causing my adoptive father to leave the country and be mainly absent physically and emotionally for our teen years and adulthood.

LoupGarou Wed 29-Mar-17 22:38:20

Can I have a serious set and a fun set please?

1. I wish my non surviving DC were alive.
2. I wish everyone had a safe, loving home and enough food
3. I wish animal cruelty didn't exist

Aww crap I'm upset now and can't think of any fun ones. Ffs. Will be back with the fun ones a bit later.

TomaytoTomahto Wed 29-Mar-17 22:55:01

These are probably going to be the most generic wishes ever but I just want to be happy, healthy, and loved.

sonyaya Thu 30-Mar-17 07:55:31

A personal train carriage I could attach to any train I wanted to go on

What an excellent idea.

VivienneWestwoodsKnickers Thu 30-Mar-17 08:06:05

1) that DP wasn't infertile following NHS decisions in the 80's that they have learned from since then
2) that I had never got fat in the first place
3) that I hadn't bothered with university and had gone into the workplace instead (debt related)

SodsLaw2017 Thu 30-Mar-17 08:17:15

1) I wish I felt my mum was my friend

2) For a loving supportive happy relationship

3) For my anxiety to fuck off, forever
