When we were teenagers – my friend and I were going to change the world. No, really! We campaigned and argued and and fought for causes that we were convinced we believed in. Then we planned to move to New York and design things thereby making the world a prettier place.
To her credit, my lovely friend has indeed landed a glamorous job and does indeed travel to New York but (as we both realised over dinner last week) we haven’t yet changed the world.
Life got in the way.
I, on the other hand, have well and truly left my campaigning days of Uni behind. These days I am happier making my house pretty whilst surrounded by children.
And that’s why this gift from Becca is totally perfect, it completely sums me up.
Hopefully, there is still time to change the world.
