    Yeah, and we will, eventually... I renovated my previous house myself so am pretty handy but it isn't as easy with a toddler and 22 weeks pregnant. Plus can't actually afford the paint at the moment

    I would like a fairy godmother to miraculously dump $50k in my account for Family Court so I can afford a decent barrister to fight hard for my children's emotional wellbeing. If there was an extra $400 then I would love to have my car serviced and a nice haircut

    Hahaha, there is NO way I'd do it if I was preggo. I have a toddler and it is bad enough with kids. Plus, it is taking me ages, I go in, scrap paint of, fill cracks with crack filler, leave it for a few days. Go back in, Undercoat one wall, leave it for a few days etc. So a professional painter would have it done in a day - I am spending about a month on each room and the rest of the house is very much like a "reno" house - with rooms unused and other rooms storing everything. Oh for a million dollars!

    Yeah and the main room that needs painting is the lounge which is open plan, with a vaulted ceiling so about 12ft high at the highest point. Going to take ages but can't as the toddler will get in the way... Oh well I'll put up with baby poo yellow

    I want fruit for the kids and meat for dinner. We've really been stretching because DF didn't get paid on time and we had to buy a mattress (got the other from my Dad) for the kids bunk bed last week.

    If food was taken care of I would want a holiday to the snow.
    A haircut.
    Some new jeans (mine have a hole in and the other pair got bleached) and boots.
    Also I wish I could afford driving lessons so I could get my Ps.

    I would like

    A person to follow me around and slap all the bad food choices out of my hands. Surely that's a thing?

    Df to be more excited about planning a wedding.

    At least an acre out of town on the right side for df to go to work with a decent enough house (doesn't have to be brilliant- we don't mind renovating) for under $300k. What a dream! If only...

    Pregnancy acne to go away.
    Money to move in with my partner.
    Job so I can move in with my partner.
    A dog as I have always had dogs and feel lost without one but can't have one until I have enough time to train one.
    A car.
    My ex husband to see his kids reliably so I can do a good grocery shop without dragging my autistic child through crowds.
