Build Your Days Around What Is Important To You

DAY 25

There is a favourite game I like to play and it works equally well with friends over a mellow glass of 'something-something' late at night or with kids in the car on the way to school.

It's called "Imagine Your Ultimate [.......]"

No, that is not meant to be a swear word in there, although I guess you could.
The intention is that you can fill the space with something wonderful.....holiday, adventure, school camp, home, friend....usually it's experiences but it's your game now, so anything goes.
The only rule is that there are no limitations, it's your 'ultimate whatever' so you can make it as big and bold as you wish.

One of the great bonding moments that I've shared with Cpt. V's middle child was an evening spent imagining our 'Ultimate Day'.

We started with how we would wake and what we would see when we first opened our eyes.
We described in great detail every aspect of what our 'Ultimate Day' would involve.

As the conversation unfolded we realised that we both have lots of similar elements that we would both incorporate and that we both value family, living in a semi-rural environment and having animals and music in our lives.

By the end of our chat I had a VERY clear idea of what this special person loves most in the world and was amazed at the clarity of the vision shared.
In fact we could have easily made each other a Vision Board after this discussion but I think it probably is most special as images in our own minds.

I would love to share some images with you from my ultimate day but for some reason BBB [Big Bad Blogger] won't let me upload, so we'll save those for another time.

Until next we meet, enjoy the 'now' imagining you ultimate....


  1. You have some of the best games. It's so great that you were able to use it to bond so strongly with one of your kids. Love it!

  2. What a fab idea, Felicity. I look forward to the pixies being a bit older so we can play this. J x

  3. My favourite daydream game is how I would spend the 30million I had just won on Tattslotto.....it usually ends with me looking at houses on realestate.com thats after Ive given most of it away to various charities. :)

  4. That is a great idea! I believe it is almost like surrounding yourself with things you love the most. Have a gorgeous day, Kellie xx

  5. Right now I day dream of just 4 extra hours in the day - I am soooooooooooo sorry I haven't kept up-to-date but the magnitude of packing up a house and 3 kids is becoming overwhelming intend to spend loads of hours blogging when I am at my mothers house and she can help with the kids
    I can but only dream

    Love ing
