Coulda Woulda Shoulda

Do you ever remember that episode of Sex and the City where the ladies discussed regrets and how they would have done things differently if they'd had the chance. However, Samantha Jones tells them how it is, to forget regrets and to move on . . .

Life is too short to have regrets but I do wish I could turn back time and do things a little differently:

I'd have become a blogger years ago so that I could have written about:
  • the time I visited the shoe salon in Saks Fifth Avenue in Sans Francisco wearing a pair of cheap flip flops but was treated like a park avenue princess;
  • flew over the Golden Gate and was that scared I could not breathe for the first five minutes of the flight or speak for the entire flight;
  • when I celebrated New Years Eve in Prague but celebrated so much that I have a few lost hours that I haven't managed to regain (pesky Jagermeister!);
  • Negotiating Madrid and the Spanish train system with a tiny little Spanish and attending one of my best friend's wedding in a beautiful town called Avila and finding out that Spanish people really know how to party!; and
  • Taking my husband to his first outdoor gig, seeing Oasis at Heaton Park in 2009;
I also wish I could turn back time to when we first got our dog Jasper, so that I could teach him that I am his favourite all time person. At this present time, he is Blackpool's answer to Greyfriars Bobby and adopts a Marlene Dietrich 'I want to be alone' pose when my husband is on nights. I am sat on the couch alone.

I also do wish that I'd not had that perm in the 1990's, never thrown out any shoes and kept my Pioneer record player but hey Coulda Woulda Shoulda . . .

pining away

As we drive along this road called life, occasionally a gal will find herself a little lost. And when that happens, I guess she has to let go of the coulda, shoulda, woulda, buckle up and just keep going.” Samantha Jones
