Thursday 13.

Thirteen Things about Madamspud169.

13 things in my life that I regret.

01) Becoming a diabetic - this has given me so many other health problems.

02) Going to Sholing Girls Secondary School - I was doing really well in school until I went to this school & was picked on mercilessly by one of the teachers.

03) Not going to university - just imagine the job I could be doing now.

04) Certain boyfriends - why did I even like some them they were horrible people.

05) Losing contact with certain friends from college - I miss the confidences & fun we used to have.

06) Not emigrating to another country when I was younger.

07) Marrying & staying with my second husband for as long as I did.

08) Moving so far away from my mum - I miss her so much.

09) Not learning to drive - life would be so much easier if I drove & my son wouldn't miss out like he does now.

10) Not learning sign language while I was under 18 & it would have been free.

11) Getting a cat instead of a dog.

12) Working in a bar instead of an office where there was promotion prospects.

13) Not being able to cook fantastic tasting meals that everyone will enjoy & eat.

You do the best you can with what you've been given at the time. You can do no better than that.

We all regret things. It's part of life.
Happy TT!

I think you might like a post I wrote a wee while ago called Mistakes. It has a short clip of Edith Piaf and an English translation of the lyrics. Life's too short for regret!
Happy TT!

I think every woman has a couple ex-boyfriends in their past that they just wonder "What was I thinking??" :)
