It's only now, after the dust has settled and there are decisions to be made, I realise how bad we are at making them! We are very fortunate, we live in a house that suits our families needs, it's not an old cottage with a huge garden like in our dreams, but we just about manage the monthly mortgage repayments! But do we want more? And who will admit it, and will it rock the boat of our comfortable lives?

Some people have their whole lives mapped out, I wonder does this focus and help them achieve their ambitions? I learn of friends who have year plans, five year plans and even life plans and find myself wondering if we need one? The best things in my life have kind of just 'happened' and were certainly not planned, we met and married within a year, a new house came exactly a year after, as we were in the right place at the right time and then a year later along came a baby! We had certainly not discussed in great detail any of these life changing elements, it just felt right at the time, we went along with the flow and have done ever since, for me 'it was meant to be'.
