The one with the life advice


It’s been a funny old week.

I’ve been feeling a bit strange, on and off: one minute I’m fine, the next I’m anxious and extremely emotional.

I think it all started when we heard the news of our family friend. He passed away suddenly at the start of the week. Rob’s dad had been to the pub with him just hours before; he was healthy, he was happy, he had just a handful of shifts at work until he retired. He was planning the next stage of his life and then he had it snatched away from him. And it’s just one of those situations that really makes you think.

It makes you question everything. It makes you lose faith. It makes you want to go out there and achieve everything. This life is not a rehearsal – we only get to live it once, so just do the things you want to do without thought; without question; without reason.

And make the most of your family! Life is too short to get annoyed at your partner for silly little things, or at your sibling for being a bit of an idiot, or at your parents for being, well, parents.

We've spent the weekend couped up in each other's company. We had a lie in this morning, with cups of tea and cuddles from the dog. Then we wandered around Calke Abbey for a while, taking in the views and allowing Sid to get as wet and muddy as possible. I live for simple, yet precious moments like these and you should too. 

So go and treat yourselves to those Jimmy Choos, book that holiday, give your elderly Dad a squeezy hug. You won't regret it!
