Fill In The Blank


...a personal cook.

Even though I enjoy cooking and baking, I could get used to someone preparing meals for me.

And by the way, when I was a kid, we actually had a personal cook that cooked for us seven days a week.

She went by the name of 'mom'.

Your turn!

  2. A house keeper. I am somewhat of a slob.

  3. A masseuse (a live-in one, cute, fit, male, single, straight, smart and nice) - as needed around the clock. Smiles.

    1. We need a little more detail about what you'd like, Robyn! LOL...

    2. Not at all. And who wouldn't want a masseuse on demand? :)

  4. LOL with your mom being your "personal cook" when you were growing up :) I would have a maid also, but in reality the house doesn't get that dirty and I keep it up a little bit each day. Probably someone to go grocery shopping for me. I'm grateful to be able to have the money to do so, but its a task I would rather avoid if possible.

    1. It's the same way here, Betty. There are only the two of us now and the house doesn't get that dirty, and like you, I keep it up a little each day. So housecleaning isn't what I'd want either.

      The shopping is a good choice! I didn't think of that.

    1. Mom cooks are the best. We don't appreciate them like we should until we move out and start our own cooking! For some households, it's dads. Dads can also be awesome cooks.

  6. About fifteen years ago I asked my daughter why Madonna and I are the same age but she looks the way she does and I look the way I do. My daughter wisely replied, She has a chef and a personal trainer.

    Love,

    1. Yes! Your daughter is right :) Smart girl. And don't forget the housecleaner and gardener and chauffeur and on and on. That would take off about 10 years for me...LOL...

    2. Oh, yes. If you're Madonna, you have whatever you want.

  7. I really don't mind cooking, cleaning, ironing etc so I think I would choose something to pamper me ... like an aromatherapy massage, or a foot massage... blissful and so relaxing.

    All the best Jan

  8. When I win the lottery, I will hire a full-time personal assistant who will do all errands, laundry, housecleaning, grocery shopping, meal preparation and other chores. If you're gonna dream, DREAM BIG!

  9. Someone to help me understand how to run my new business. They could show me the ins and outs of how to get the numbers and taxes right. Teach me to do my business taxes. That would be grand.

    1. Teach me in terms of terms of money making side, taxes, keeping track of cost and all that stuff that I really don't know enough about.

      Happy mid-week!

    2. It would be very cool to learn all that. It can be quite overwhelming when you don't know the ins and outs of it all.

  10. I would want a personal "handy man / handy person". My husband is fantastic at starting things, but life gets in the way. I would want someone who goes around and finishes all the little (or big) projects that need completing. Oh, I'm giddy at the sheer thought of it! -Jenn

    1. That's a great choice. Painting can be quite a chore.

  14. ...a house keeper. I detest housework. I have to say to myself, You can go outside and play when your house work is done.

  15. I'm afraid I'm the kind of person who thinks if I want something done right I should do it myself! I wouldn't mind a gardener though. I have a terrible time in the summer trying to keep up with the weeds.

    1. Oh, I can relate to that, Bethany! Keeping up with weeds is a big job.

  16. you had me on that 'personal cook'... I would like a housekeeper especially for dusting which I hate.

    1. Dusting is a pain in the behind. It always ALWAYS just keeps coming back!

  17. Since hubby cooks the majority of meals, and I do the patio gardening, I'm going to say gardener. :)

    1. You'd have the best landscape design in your neighbourhood!

  18. I'd have liked a personal photographer so I could look back and see what i was like. I could have said to the wife "here's one of me eating a piece of toast" or "here's me riding a bike when I was 13". Photos are so important when you get to my age and you can't look back at them.

    1. That is such a great idea. Photos are extremely important. Each one tells a story.

  19. A freaking handiman to care for my house and yard. I am too lazy to repair stuff.

  20. If I could afford hired help I would have a.......general contractor

  21. Yikes, It just occurred to me that I must be a control freak as it took me awhile to think of something that I am willing to relinquish. I would say I would be happy to have a co-gardener. I will do the fun stuff and the hire-ee can do all the heavy stuff like spreading mulch and rock. Plus I will give them all the chores like cleaning out the leaves from prickly bushes and spraying the smelly rabbit deterrent spray. I expect my co-gardener will probably quit fairly quickly.

    1. HAHAHA! Your last line made me laugh out loud. And I'm just like you, Cheryl, because it took me awhile to think of something, too. I feel like only I can do the job right!

  22. We got to hire a cleaner coz mum was in and out of hospital so sick they finally mentioned My Aged Care and getting home help. They put us in contact with ACH and we got a cleaner once a month to do the vacumming, mopping and bathroom as I'm unable to bend for long periods due to a bitching issue with sciatica. It costs $12 a visit.

    1. That's terrific about the cleaner. That must be a huge help for you. And $12 seems like a very reasonable amount.
