No theme on the blog today - just a couple of random bits of information.
The flag is on its way. It was posted this morning and I was told it would take 4-6 days to arrive. Not sure if that's working days but I guess Chris K can expect it sometime next week. And he might also find a little surprise in the parcel just for him.
I woke up this morning to howling winds - the type that are virtually shrieking at you to stay tucked up under the covers. So what did I do? I sucked it up and hit the road. Told myself that I wouldn't regret running but I probably would regret not running. It was cold but it was such a good run and I didn't regret it.
I learnt an important lesson on parenting from an unusual source yesterday. I watch a lot of recorded TV while I'm working and, I hate to admit this in a public forum, one of the shows I enjoy is Cougar Town. (because I can so relate to being some hot cougar)
The episode I watched yesterday was about Jules and her need to control the life of her son (an on-going theme). It struck me that I had a little bit of Jules in me when it comes to Josh. Since his problems last year I've been trying to micro-manage his life and really it's time to step away and let him manage himself. He IS 22. He has a degree and a good job. Sure I don't always agree with everything he does but what parent does? Funnily enough, I don't do this with Sam (23) and I think it's because he moved out of home for a year while he was at uni. I think that time away matured our relationship and stopped my tendency to over-mother. So now I need to give Josh the same respect and trust that he will make the right decisions for himself - not MY right decisions.
