The world moves too fast for me and I really struggle to keep up, so the way I look at it, I have two options, either I can hang on for dear life to the roundabout which is spinning out of control, just about holding on with the tips of my fingers while my feet are flying outwards with an ever-increasing force to pull me into oblivion, or, I can let the world carry on without me, I can sit on the centre pole and trust to gravity not to let me slip off.
Unfortunately for Hubby he’s my gravity, which means at times he has to hold on tightly to the roundabout with me tied to his bootlaces ! (for which I’m forever grateful, but in no way can you quote me on this).
We all have our ups and downs, or downs and downs, but whether is was the recent rains which pulled me so far down, or the sunshine in Nice which picked me back up again, or the little round white smarties I’ve been swallowing each morning before breakfast … who cares … the point is I’m on the way up again, and it’s a good feeling.
