Covetous

I don't think [at least I hope not] that I'm by nature an acquisitive creature. It gives me great pleasure to enjoy and admire new things or see other's possessions, but the process hardly ever gives me a dose of "I wants" You can imagine what a nightmare I am come birthday or Christmas time then as I am asked "what do you want?" and I draw a blank. One year I think my Mum could hardly believe it when I asked her for one of those extendable feather dusters. However, she bought me one [along with other far more exciting things] and it's been an absolute godsend. I've used it loads.

Unusually for me this year I knew exactly what I wanted...I'd seen it earlier this year on the Irish Archaeology Shop....now nearly everything on there makes me covetous [aside from the beard beads...I probably could grow my own facial hair at this stage in my life if I so chose, but I don't think it's something I really want to aim for!] Ta-dah....one Celtic Triskele bracelet. Yum yum!


Thanking you kindly Mr GBT!

  1. I'm not covetous either and often draw blanks if people ask me what I'd like. xxx

    1. There's definitely a difference between liking and wanting to own something for yourself isn't there!
