Regrets, I Have a Few, but Then Again Too Few to Mention


So so so proud tonight having just returned from granddaughters Masters graduation. It was lovely to see all the young people in their gowns and mortar boards, lovely ceremony, very historic with all the tutors parading into the hall in their gowns and caps. It was happy but at same time I felt a little sad at missing out on the opportunities when I was young. I wouldn't swap what I have now but do wonder what might have been..........do you?

No wonder you are proud, many congratulations to your granddaughter. We are all allowed a few regrets but every decision made, right or perhaps not well thought out at the time, shapes who we are today. The teenage me (expected to become a teacher, 2.4 children etc) would never have believed where life has led me.


Well I was on the cusp of women's lib and after joining the Navy it was compulsory to leave if you were married and got pregnant, which I did. Often wonder what I would have done.......could have been an Admiral by now lol.........but wouldn't not have my family for all the world.
