Apparently the country is going to hell in a handcart. I haven’t noticed, though I have noticed the price of a decent loaf has gone up by 5p again. I’ve been quite disillusioned with news and the media lately. Whenever I attempt to look at news all I see is ‘Brexit, Brexit, Jungle, Brexit, Jungle, Jungle, Trump, Brexit, Jungle, Jungle, Brexit.’
I have left this entry until the last minute tonight. But it is alright, because not much happened anyway. I heard from my Mum a little bit after I finished work. She needs to assert herself more. Today she went into the doctors a bag of nerves, looking for a sicknote so she can get through looking after my Dad without having another breakdown. She left five minutes later with no sicknote and as a complete nervous wreck. In my career I must have taught at least 100 kids how to be assertive, but I can’t get my own mother to make a peep!
I need to remember that mantra about having serenity not to worry about the things I cannot change. I don’t worry about Trump’s Brexit Jungle because I can’t change any of it, perhaps I need to apply this thinking to other aspects of my life. But this leads me to the question, what things can I actually change? What difference can I make? My guess is the answer lies under this roof with the woman I married and our three beautiful daughters.
