Five Among Friends: Hopes & Dreams

Welcome to a new feature, Five Among Friends, where myself & some of my closest blogging friends will be linking up for a a series of Q & A's once every month.

We'd love to see your answers to the questions too - Just post your Q & A on your blog and then put your link in the Linky below and we'll be sure to check them out! Don't forget to check out other peoples answers too!

This week's theme is  Hopes & Dreams.....

This week's questions were written by Jess at Our Baby Blog....

The Questions

1) What is your dream job?

I've always wanted to write professionally.

I started writing stories when I was about 5 years old, basically when I learned how to write!, my mum bought me a typewriter when I was about 7 and I used to sit typing out full novels from then on!

I would absolutely love to be a published author someday.

2) If you won the lottery, what would be the first thing you would buy?

Ooh I love this game! I always spend hours imaging how much I've won and who I'd divide it up amongst, and then realise that I'd end up with very little left once I'd given what I wanted away to family & friends!!! I'd be a rubbish lottery winner! 

I think the very first thing I'd want to buy though would be a lovely big house with an indoor pool and jacuzzi!

And then I'd book a looooooong cruise!

3) Picture your life in 5 years time, what do you hope it will be like?

Hmm I don't imagine it'll be a great deal different - Tyne will be at school (Sob!!!) so I guess I'll have more free time during the day, although I would like to have another child by then so perhaps not!

4) If you had 3 wishes right now, what would you wish for?

1) Enough money to buy a lovely house and book onto a really nice cruise holiday
2)Health & happiness guaranteed for life for Tyne
3)A doctor who knows what they're doing to examine me and diagnose my ongoing medical problems so I could actually get some treatment!
5) What do you hope to achieve in your lifetime?

I'd like to raise a happy, healthy little boy and possibly another child. I'd like to adopt a child, and I'd like to have a book published.
