I wrote this for Ashley Nixon’s blog, she is a third level student from the U.S.A. Her blog is cool and fun.
She also did a guest post on my blog here.
Here is an extract from what I wrote form her blog:
“I wish it was Friday,” this was my constant wish when I was in school. Then, when I was in college it was; “I wish it was rag week* already.” In my twenties it changed as my friends got engaged, I would wish on their engagement rings; “I wish I was grown up enough to get married.” Before I knew it I was in my thirties, working in a job I detested, in a city I hated, with people I would not even break bread wishing; “I wish I could retire.”

Lads thank you all so much, I love getting comments.
Cheers, that means a lot.
You Sir, rock! I love your comments and your blog. I was telling Mr. King about something I saw on your blog and am on my way there now.
Cheers, that means so much as I love your blog and the content you write about.
Wishing your life away, hmmm, for the most part, I wish I had more time, it all rushes in too fast – but great post! 🙂
I love how naturally you write and about things that are relevant to us all. Yes, you are absolutely right about wishing our lives away and I was definitely guilty of that in my younger years. I am in my fifties now and don't know where all the years have gone. Like you I have found a creative outlet in writing which is something I had never thought about up until Christmas last year and now here I am blogging on a daily basis from a number of sites including the one that is closest to my heart which is my newly created Spirit Whisperer website.
There are however only two writers I have found interesting enough to subscribe to their blog and you were the first. The other one is Aleta Edwards who is a psychologist in USA but unlike all the others I have read she, like you, is down to earth and writes from the heart. Thank you Michelle.
