deird1: lilac flowers, with text "how do they rise up" (lilac)

When I was about 11, my mum had a birthday. And when I asked her what she wanted for a present, she said "Oooh... I'd really like a new kettle." (Or something of that nature. Grown up, kitcheny, and boring, that's the main thing I remember.)

I rolled my eyes, and said "No, Mum, something you want, not just something practical.", I was rather clueless.

I turned 35 today, and my presents included two cooking thermometers, a bunch of flowers, a CD for my kids to listen to, a casserole for my family to eat for dinner sometime this week, and a dutch oven. And they are ALL AWESOME. A decade ago, I would not have realised how boring my future presents would be - or how much I would consider them superb and wonderful and not boring at all...

My husband's current wishlist includes grill brushes, a cookie sheet, and a hanging basket for storing fruit.

I keep mourning the fact that, even if I put bras on my wishlist, no one will ever buy them because that's just Not Done.
