Dealing with limbo
As I write I am slightly perturbed about two things. First, that I have had to write 2018 at the top of the page to save it correctly in alignment with when this will go to print, and second, that I am sitting in a house full of boxes.
At this time last year I wrote about approaching the New Year and reflecting on what was ahead. This year has not been what I expected, but then is any year ever what we expect? Life takes its course and we just have to go with it.
So 2018 will be as it is and meanwhile I sit with boxes. They were packed on the day when the house exchange was supposed to happen in anticipation of completion two days later. But exchange has not happened, so I am living in limbo. It’s a really interesting place to be. I was asked to leave out what I might need, but I was in London on a dento-legal study day whilst it was happening and only expected to leave out two days of ‘stuff’. I am now faced with at least 13 days, if everything goes to plan!
