We it’s been almost 3 years since I last posted anything and a lot has changed.Back in April 2012 we were blessed with twins, a boy and a girl, both healthy kids. Let us fast forward to today and those little babies aren’t so little anymore as they are due to turn 4 this year.
My eldest is 16 and as I write this I am sat in a Travelodge near Caterick as he will be taking his residential course tomorrow as part of his application to join the Army Offices programme. Each year almost 1,000 15-16 years apply for just 90 places to enrol into the programme and I am immensely proud to say that he has been shortlisted to move forward with selection. The funny thing is that I still remember when he was born, when he was the same age as the twins are now and so on.
This got me thinking that the old saying “time and tide wait for no man” is so very true; no matter what we do with our lives, time will still tick on regardless. I’m guessing by now you’re probably wondering where I’m going with this?
Well it’s safe to say that as I get older I understand that time should not be wasted doing things that you don’t enjoy or that isn’t what you want. Life is short and should be grasped around the neck with both hands and then wring every last breath out of it. As we pass through life many obstacles will get in the way of what we want (money, people, jobs, etc) but sometimes you just have to say “to hell with it” and do what you have to do because it’s very rare you get a second chance.
Anyway, that’s my ramblings; It’s good to be back but now I need to turn in for the night as I’m going to make the most of being able to get a whole night of uninterrupted sleep 🙂
