Life never seems to be a very smooth road, indeed it would be a mundane one if it was totally straight and smooth. There needs to be some crossroads and junctions, hills to climb, etc... to be able to say that you have 'lived' your life. My life? well, my life seems to have more turns in the road than Birminghams famous 'Spaghetti junction' and all as frustrating when you can see where you want to be, but the part of the junction you are on is leading you in the opposite direction. My hills appear to have been seemingly unscaleable mountains, and even the straight roads have often seemed extremely long and full of obstacles and hurdles. Life goes on though, day turns into night, turns into day and so forth, and as each new day dawns so does ones resolve to finally take the correct exit on the superhighway of life which will take you onto a more positive road, so the journey and destination will be a pleasing one to the body and soul.
I have scaled my mountains one after the other, I have cleared many hurdles and completed more obstacle courses than I can recount. I have one particular mountain that I seem to be unable to scale, try as I might.. I provide myself with the correct 'tools' and off I go, slowly trying to scale this beast of impossibility. This mountain has a name, it is called 'WEIGHT', nicknamed Fatso, Blubber, Lard-ass, etc... and by golly is it one tough cookie to see the back of. BUT, I am no quitter, I will scale WEIGHT and when I reach the top I will ram that victory flag so hard into the peak that WEIGHT will be in no doubt that it has been conquered.
This weeks obstacle was but a small one, my scales broke and the replacement seems to have a bit of a problem making its mind up what I weigh ( I can stand on them 10 times in succession and be flashed a different poundage every time). No matter, they are off back to the shop and a new set is to be purchased, hurdle cleared.
Weekend on shift for me from tonight, hey ho. For those lucky enough to have the weekend off, have a fab one. 😊
