When I grow up

I was talking to a friend the other day, and she said that when she watches cookery shows on TV, she often thinks “I’ll cook that when I’m an adult…”

It reminded me that I still think “When I grow up…” on a regular basis.

When I grow up…

  • I will keep my house clean and tidy, and vacuum every day.
  • I will have money left over at the end of the month.
  • I will read proper, grown-up magazines instead of the lowbrow tat I currently entertain myself with
  • I will understand the other 80% of the jokes on Have I Got News For You
  • I’ll be able to stay up past my bed time (the bed time I impose on myself because I’m always so tired!)
  • I will have a dinner repertoire that stretches beyond one chicken dish and one beef mince dish.
  • My dirty clothes will find it to the wash basket without languishing on the landing for a while first
  • I will organise my time properly and not waste so much of it dicking about.
  • I will cease to find lolcats funny
  • I will see what’s coming, and plan for it.
  • I will be prepared for every possible outcome
  • I’ll be able to just keep chocolate in the house for unlimited amounts of time… without having to eat it.
  • I’ll be able to speak my mind in person, not just on my blog.
  • I’ll feel like I know what I’m doing.
Is it just me, or does everyone still think When I grow up… – even when they’re 32?

What will you do when you grow up?
