Life has a way of slipping us by.
The older we get, the quicker time goes – each day, month or year being a decreasing percentage of your lifetime to-date. And somehow our life keeps getting busier, with more and more demands on our increasingly limited time – many of them of our own making.
Our dreams get bigger and bolder and yet are often subjugated by the things we need to do rather than the things we want to do, and there is that underlying sense that we will never be able to do all that we would like to in the time we have left on this earth.
And yet, looking back on our short 5 years of marriage we have already done more than some people do in a lifetime:
We bought and renovated a house in France – living there for almost a year
We travel as much as we can afford (and often a little bit more!)
We pursue many diverse hobbies and interests (and for me, blogging is just one of those – and my excuse for my spasmodic posting)
I meet new people and learn new things in my temporary admin work
Tony is ever-edging towards his dream of working in the food industry
We are constantly moving around the eastern suburbs of Melbourne, house-sitting or house-swapping
And with 9 children between us there is always something going on in the family – the latest being another leaf on the family tree.
Life is full, busy and exciting – some of which I manage to blog about!
Our life together is an adventure, and we aim to enjoy every precious fleeting minute – wherever it takes us.
