Christmas is right around the corner, it’s just a few hours before Santa gets his reindeers ready for the big ride and drops our presents in our chimneys. As I don’t have one, this year’s gifts will be everything but solid. I just want to receive things that can get into my Life from the outside by a simple act of magic, but no sliding down this chimney that I don’t own, no climbing up that balcony of mine because it is totally snow-free at the moment therefore unappropriate for reindeer’s landing from the Sky, and no knock-knock-knocking on my (Heaven’s) door for a last minute package delivery while I would still be wearing my cute and comfy pyjamas! So here we go with my List, Santa please try your best! I’ve decorated a tree for you!
A rock-steady love and happiness with my dear husband, and the chance to share always more complicity, interesting experiences and happy times together.
Health, good health, for everyone around and myself, so that we all can enjoy the treasures of what Life has to offer, with no limits or constraints whatsoever.
Extra time to travel the world (please please please)!
More talent in developing a nicer blog and attracting a wider audience.
A simple and basic unlimited budget to purchase all the nice plates, dishes and trays from the franchised stores Maisons du Monde, so I can set up nice food presentations. Well, wait, make it an unlimited budget to just purchase the store franchise itself, it will be easier for me to pick up what I like.
New cooking experiences in my little kitchen, new flavors discovery, new world food program (without Caps Locks), new food photography, new inspirational blogging friends, new trials of cooking dishes from the 5 continents, well, new trips on my plate!
More time and energy to finish the translation in English of my book telling about my former expat life in China. Oh G-d, that takes me ages!
Extra time to travel. Yeah, I know, asked for it already. Don’t care. Too important for me not to mention it again. Santa will understand the message hopefully!
Dreams, drums and no more drama.
Ambition. Independance. Autonomy. Pride and dignity. Forever. Otherwise, where’s the point?
Why not more sales of my Cookbook, let’s go crazy, people!
And extra time to travel.
Merry Christmas to all of you!
