Things I Know Are True

I guess the older you get, the wiser you become to many of life's mysteries. You learn how to negotiate the pitfalls by mastering what works for you and knowing how to behave in a crisis. And I guess while this is great in theory, in practice I still have a lot to fathom out.

This is what I've learnt during my forty-something years...

1. I am never going to love eating salad or drinking water just as long as dark chocolate and wine are readily available.

2. The best way to deal with any problem is to tackle it head-on before it becomes an even bigger problem.

Warning: skip no. 3 if you're eating or feeling a bit peaky.

3. When the cat is licking her lips and making a strange knocking sound she's about to honk up a furball and I need to move like lightning if I don't want to scoop this up off the floor.

4. I always write better after a couple of glasses of wine. The following day however, I need to go back and do some serious editing as what I've written will be complete gibberish.

5. There are some mysteries in life that aren't meant to be solved, such as:

a. How did we end up with so many odd socks? and...
b. Didn't I just clean the house yesterday?

6. When conversations with my daughters begin with, "Muuuum," chances are I'm not going to like what they have to say. But being a mum, I'll always listen attentively and do whatever I can to help.

7. I like to think that I'm superwoman and capable of dealing with anything life flings in my direction. In real life that isn't how I roll at all. I'm guilty of taking on way too much and chances are I'll run out of steam before tackling everything I need to do.

 8. Often it's the simple (but daft) things in life that keep me sane. And dancing in the kitchen while listening to Mahna Mahna on my iPod never fails to cheer me up. The kids just look at one another in complete disbelief if they're home.

I guess if you know something, you don't have to think about it. What could possibly be wrong with that?

Until next time...
