In the space of just a couple of days I have ticked off TWO of my New Year ‘Hopes’. Feeling pretty pleased with myself as I have finally booked our Borneo family adventure during the summer.
Now, I accept that spending your redundancy pay on a long haul adventurous family holiday might not seem sensible (ok, it’s not even remotely logical), but here’s my reasoning:
‘You’re a long time dead’
I once worked with a funny, witty Irish guy who used this phrase regularly. Whenever he was faced with a difficult decision, he chose the more exciting, less practical option, always justifying it by saying:
‘Ah well…. you’re a long time dead’
Before his 30th birthday he died in a helicopter crash and left me this legacy. Whenever I am faced with a fork in the road I choose the less logical, less sensible option in honour of Sean.
Half Empty Nest
Son 1 will soon be 17. He has a driving licence. He shaves. He is a man. Pretty soon he will have left this nest and I want us to have one more family adventure before he goes.
We have had some amazing family trips and as I now have more time on my hands I will have plenty of time to check the details of this one, and avoid being left at Heathrow like last year!
