Is this it, then?  
It's 2am and I really should be in bed but there's a Bach concerto on the radio and I'm shopping online for jeans and when did this become my life? What happened to my plans to backpack around the world? And to do something useful - something that really helped people - how did I end up where I am, doing what I do, all my dreams and aspirations buried under the sheer normalcy of my day to day existence.
Ah what the hell, I'll have another glass of wine and it will all look better.

I think we all have those moments, don't we?

I always say 18 year old me would laugh her arse off at who I am now.

I think the trick when these moments arise is to think about all the good stuff that came out of going places you never expected to go. For instance, if I'd followed the path I wanted when I was 18 I cannot imagine how I'd have ever met MG.

Hmm yes there's been a lot of good things happen. Just feeling wistful, and old :-(
My maths teacher would be laughing his arse off if he knew what I do for a living. I wasn't terrible at maths but it wasn't my best subject.

This is what comes from too much Chardy after a long week. *g* Hope your head is OK this morning and you feel brighter in yourself.

I always wanted to travel, go to England and visit rellies over there, but lack of money plus the aftermath of WW11 sort of put the kybosh on that.

You're right, probably the chardy. We'll blame that, anyway. Head fine this morning and I woke up surprisingly early considering the time I went to bed.

I'm sorry you didn't make it overseas to see your relatives.
