I didn’t blow out candles on a cake.
I didn’t rub a magic lamp.
I didn’t throw a penny into the wishing well.
I didn’t blow dandelion seeds into the wind.
I didn’t find a four-leafed clover.
I didn’t break a wishbone.
I didn’t clutch a lucky horseshoe.
I didn’t wish upon a star.
And yet, a kindly fairy found me and granted me a wish!
The Fairy Hobmother works for Appliances Online, a web retailer of cookers and other household appliances and has such a fun job, granting wishes and spreading happiness.
Helen wished for a stand mixer with dough hooks and her wish was quickly granted. She wrote all about it, inviting her readers to make their own wishes in her comments.
Having attended a pasta and risotto making course with Hubbub just a few days earlier, I wished for a pasta making attachment for my handsome KitchenAid, Intergalactic Unicorn.
And it really made my day to receive a surprise email from the Fairy Hobmother granting my wish and offering me the chance to pass it forward! My pasta attachment set arrived yesterday, just in time for my 2nd blog birthday, this weekend, and I can't wait to start using it!
For the chance to have your wish granted by the Fairy Hobmother, please leave a comment below explaining what you’d like and why.
You don’t have to restrict your wishes to items that Appliances Online sell, by the way – you can wish for any appliance you like! The Fairy Hobmother has already sent out a slow cooker, a television, a washing machine and a Tefal Actifry, to name a few, and you already know about Helen’s stand mixer and my pasta making attachment!
(This is a genuine post, not an April Fool's joke – go ahead and make your wishes!)
I leave you with a little XKCD, one of my favourite comic strips.
"That was definitely not in my top three wishes". "Who said anything about YOUR wishes?"
