The first thing that springs to mind (apart from a huge shopping trip and a holiday) would be a house. A family home, a forever home. A house that we owned, renting sucks! A house where we could mark the children's heights on the door frames of their rooms, a house where we could stay until the children leave home and fly the nest. A house that was ours forever.
When I was younger we moved quite a bit, we never stayed in one house for a very long time. I didn't mind but with Paige and Parker id love them to have a forever home. Somewhere they can grow up and even bring their children round for a big family lunch on a Sunday when they are all grew up. I don't have that and sometimes I wish I did.
So what would this dream home look like?
It would have 4, maybe 5 bedrooms. A huge kitchen diner with engineered oak flooring, granite worktops and an island. It would have a laundry room, a play room for the kids and an office/craft room for me. I'd even let mark have a man cave in the attic, haha. A garage and a big garden would finish the house off perfectly.
Me and mark have always said we would love to build our dream house. There's something so amazing about designing and having control in building your own house. You could have rooms and areas specifically designed for your family, everything tailor made to suit. We love watching all the house programmes on tv and getting plenty of ideas.
I'm not sure if we ever will but I think its a lovely dream to have and one day who knows. Until then we are perfectly fine where we are, as a family :)
Have you thought about your dream house?
