I’ve been having a bit of a grown up week this week. I’m not sure why. I got off to a flying start at the beginning of the year but then we all got really ill with whatever winter bug it was that was going around and very quickly I found myself behind on all sorts of things; the writing course, the Italian homework, the necessities of life. My husband has just celebrated a fairly significant birthday and I’m suddenly more aware of Life, The Universe and Everything. So, as part of trying to get some sort of order in my life, I’ve been attending to all those niggling little things that you really have to sort out in order to make life run more smoothly, like life assurance and breakdown cover. Now we have the little man, I really should get my house in order. We’ve made Wills but I’m not sure whether my life assurance is adequate now, given how much our circumstances have changed since I took out the policy. I know my husband’s car is covered for breakdowns, but I think mine ran out with the car’s warranty. There are a couple of health issues to attend to – blood tests and dentist appointments which are overdue. All of these are the kinds of things that we know we should sort out but just never quite find the time.
Well, this week I am finding the time. I dislike these kinds of jobs, but I’m already feeling better for starting to address some of them. After all, you just never know what’s around the corner, do you.
Is it just me, or are we all putting off sorting out the necessities of life?
