Where has the time gone?

Yesterday (daughter #2's birthday celebrations) was, I think, a big success.

It was, just as she likes, full on.

To be honest, I felt a bit out of sorts in places, not least because our small little house was replete with (what seemed like) hundreds of voices all trying to be heard over the top of one another.

Even the evening meal in Plymouth was a bit too much for me: it was a wonderful sushi/modern cuisine restaurant but it had music playing almost like you were in a disco. I couldn't orientate myself and found that I was getting quieter and quieter.

Perhaps I'm too old for all this, but then again that sounds far too whimsical for anyone to take me seriously.

As I sit here this morning, before I head off to the gym with daughter #3, I'm hit by the sense of loss of all those things that will never come again. But that's life, right! And I really don't want to live in the past — it's nice to reminisce but it's not good for my soul.

Now is now, and that's all I need concentrate on.
