I've been spending a lot of time trying to make D-words. Its part of what I have to do as a grown-up nowadays, something that I can''t get away from, something that I am the first to admit I'm no good at. I make bad D-words every day, on behalf of myself and my two wee ones, but my true skills lie elsewhere (hmmm, not sure where that place is, but its somewhere different) and I don't think I care for this side of things too much.
Life is being taken over by decisions. There is constant pressure, they make my days go quite well or less well- I'm sure people can understand this one, even if your circumstances are different to my own. Rocks and Hard Places spring to mind, because theres never an obvious answer! I am in constant battle in this little Single Mummy Zone that I live in, and come up against other people's advice and opinions about things (when- lets be honest- I have no idea how to do said 'things') far too much. I would very much like a Fairy Godmother, if there is a spare one reading my blog on her tea break, to flutter by and give a girl some guidance. Thank you in advance!

Even the word 'Decisions'. Oooh, its ugly. It induces stress! I spent a number of weeks learning French with a set of fab CDs a couple of years ago, before a holiday. How strange the human mind is, or maybe its just mine... because in the same way that I still hear my Driving Instructors actual voice in my head whilst I drive, even years after I passed ('CAUTION: Where theres a VAN, theres a... [pregnant pause while he waits for me to complete his sentence, then he shouts, over the top of me, joyfully, ] MAN' etc... he was an extremely irritating person to be trapped in a car with), I hear the French Guy in his lovely gentle accent working through the different ways of saying this one whenever I sit to ponder about the right course of action:
'...quell décision... votre décision... ma décision...'

You're not helping, French Guy!

Hopefully Inspiration will pop along to my part of the world quite soon.

  1. Good luck with your decision making. I too find them very hard to make. Well maybe not too hard to make, but very easy to quickly change my mind and then not end up doing anything. I find a cup of tea can help. Do send your Fairy Godmother my way if she makes an appearance. x
