It seems that it’s impossible to add purely Good Things to a life.
Great news? Bam! Bad news.
Good mood? Bam! Some reason to hide.
Have lots to do inside at the weekend? Bam! Have a couple of fabulously warm sunny days so you either feel guilty about missing them by being inside or about not doing the things you’d planned.
Finally get motivated enough to practise running? Bam! Do something to your ankle and need to take it steady for a while.
Finish a project at work? Bam! Get a crazy migraine headache and have to be rescued because there’s no way you’re going to cycle home.
Find a friend you haven’t seen for years? Bam! Someone you love is taken to hospital….
The great universal scales seems to need balance.
Banal or super-important, nothing is safe and even if nothing is actually related, sometimes it seems to be.

I’m glad I’m not the only one who has noticed this!
Hehe! Bizarre, isn’t it?
(I can’t find out if you commented before.. If not – welcome to my world 🙂 If you already did, have a second welcome 🙂 The Germans say “doppelt hält besser” which translates as something like “doubled holds better” (or, better twice than not at all))
