When I grow up: Wot So Funee?

Wot So Funee?


When I grow up

When I grow up - how on earth??

When I’m 30 years old I will live 1 kilometre from my current home. I will live in a mountain, on a house. Hmmm. You need to have a rethink darling. We live in Hertfordshire; there are no mountains here, and all you will find within one kilometre is a 1950′s housing estate and 5 Tesco metros. Unless of course your mountain is metaphorical, which it would have to be, were you to actually build it on top of a house. I do hope the house in question is not our current abode – I think a mountain might actually crush us. Though it would be nice to have you drop in for Sunday lunch.

I will be married. I will have 2 kids and a dog named Bob. I will have the same best friend I have right now. I will listen to the same kind of music I listen to right now. I will have the same basic haircut I have now. I will be in really excellent shape. Great, that sounds a lot like a normal life. Although I should point out that having 2 kids and being in excellent shape are mutually exclusive ;)

I will work as a dolphin trainer and I will make 100,100,000 dollars a year. Oh thank goodness. So when your mountain house caves in our roof I’ll just send the repair bill to you then. 

I will be 2 metres 10 centimetres tall. Sheesh that’s going to cost me a lot in groceries when you’re a teenager!

I will take a bus to work every day. What? You’re a multi-millionaire darling. You’ll have a limo. Besides, the buses round here only go the the Tesco metro.

I will have visited 17 different countries. Uh-oh, that sounds like a very expensive gap year…

I decided all of this using the Diary of a Wimpy Kid Do it Yourself book (which for your information, we bought with our own money, so there). I entertain my family regularly from the back of the car with my scribblings on its pages. The Bug is perfecting his eye-roll…

  1. :D I expect when she’s 40 she’ll be very, very old, ancient in fact!

  2. I’m back joining in again. I’m going with a monthly round up of the toddler hilarity from our house (I hope thats okay?)
    I love your post. Such ambitions! I always find it funny how children view grown up life. When I was a kid, I really thought you got married at 18 because it was so grown up, and you definitely had kids by 20, otherwise you were well past it. But then I also thought that being a fairy was an actual career choice!!! x

  3. Love it, so funny. Who knew dolphin trainers had such a cushy number? Doing something lovely and being paid a mint; I definitely made the wrong career choice ;) Great post. I’ve linked up with an older post comparing being a mum to Rocky’s training regime (probably because the summer hols have felt like Boot Camp) ;) x

  7. Oh, brilliant. We have this book and the 7yo has spent hours pouring over it… Haven’t had a look at his scribblings recently, must hunt it out :) We should all be dolphin trainers it would appear! Clearly where I went wrong…

    On the way home from preschool yesterday B told me she was starting school and then she would go to work when she was older. I asked her what she wants to do when she is older and she said “what you do Mummy”. Unfortunately I didn’t find out what she thinks I do.

    Brilliant. She will love looking back at that when she is 30! I can remember when I was in primary school writing about the year 2000, I said I would be driving a red sports car – never mind that I would only be 16!

    That was so sweet! Who knew dolphin trainers made that kind of money? And I love that she is going to ride the bus to work! Out of the mouths of babes….
    They used to have the kids do a little project at school where they talked about their mom…I was really really old and my job was watching tv and shopping all day. :)

    The distance from home and the height are lovely – what I find so innocent and heart warming is the belief of still being best friends – I do very hope so.
