So? Which one are you? Is the glass half full or half empty in your world?
Because you know it occurred to me on our last family holiday that I am a glass half empty kinda gal after always thinking I was an optimistic glass half full.
But you know what? I'm ok with that. I actually think there are advantages to being a glass half empty person. I mean it's obvious really isn't it: there's space in my glass!
So when the ski-mad Mr suggests that we cart ourselves, two small children and three tonnes of equipment half way around the world to chase the snow, I just sigh and point out all the difficult bits knowing all the while that I have space in my glass. If I put on my pessimist hat and prepare for the absolute WORST then I am bound to be pleasantly surprised right?
Well, I'm not sure but we are almost packed and we fly out tomorrow so I will keep you posted!
p.s Earlier in the week I had just cause to make that glass at the top completely EMPTY when I realised my wedding AND engagement rings were MISSING! Being a glass half-empty person I am certain they are gone forever (imagine my excitement when they do actually turn up! Not that they will...).
p.p.s The awesome PottyMouthMama threw down the challenge earlier in the week to ask her ANYTHING! In one of my glass half empty panics I asked for tips on long haul travel with children. Friends, she did not disappoint. If you are at all contemplating such a journey, can I tell you you're mad and then highly recommend her extensive list of suggestions. Not that any of them will work of course (see that? Glass half empty!) but like I said, I'll keep you posted ...
