Be careful of what you don’t wish for….


(Callum and Amy)

Ok in case I’ve never told you this….. if you don’t want something, (i.e. I don’t want to loose my kite, my keys, my kids) it is imperative that you stop telling yourself and others what you don’t want. Instead, tell yourself (and others) what you do want (I want to keep my kite, always know where my keys are and keep an eye on my kids, or whatever.) I say it a lot to others….. but I must have forgotten to say it to myself….

Only two weeks ago I was telling our accountant my biggest fear about doing the accounts. (I’ll mention it for the last time here just so you can learn from my mistakes but I’ll be whispering it.) My biggest fear was that I’d do something wrong with the calculation of taxes and then “they” (= undefined government body associated with taxes) would come to my house and look at my figures and I would go to jail and have to pay a huge fine and owe money to “them” for the rest of my life. In other words I was saying, I don’t want them to come to my house, I don’t want to make mistakes, I don’t want to go to jail, I don’t want to be in debt for the rest of my life.” Oops.

This morning in the post we got a letter from one of those government bodies….. Yes! Someone is coming to our house next week to look at our figures……..

Right so… I want all my figures to be correct and the nice woman to tell me it’s all good, Mairead.
