New blog place.

I'm blogging in a new place as well, as part of a blogging every day for a month thing. I really want to be able to do this - I feel better when I've blogged, even when it's just a picture, or a story of what we've done, or something like that.

So. This place has a theme of the month - and says that it's because sometimes limits set us free. I need to grok that. (Grok - 10 points if you get the reference!)


The theme is want.



What springs to mind?

Toddlers shouting "I want it Mummy"
Adverts telling me if I have a certain problem, I need a certain product. Or that I want to live a certain way and so therefore I want to own this tv/laptop/kitchen/lifestyle.
Teachers saying "I want this in by Thursday."
Me, now the teacher, saying "I want this in by Thursday."

Want is a funny word.
