It's wanting what you've got! With thanks to Sheryl Crow's Soak Up the Sun.
I know I've been a bit moany and sad lately. Been wallowing, and this was not helped by some of the articles about carers - written with the best of intentions I know - to promote National Carers Week in June. They suggest that carers are unappreciated and unsupported, depressed and despairing. Is that how people view me?
Now I know that some carers have a really tough time indeed, but you know what? My life isn't so bad. At all. So here are some of the things about being a full time carer that make me happy :
I see as much of my children as I want :D
I don't have to commute, except to appointments...
I can wear what I like. And for the price of a 'good' suit, I can buy a whole wardrobe of clothes from Penneys.
I can work on my blog, with the excuse that I'm 'keeping my hand in', for when I manage to land the perfect job.
I can say I'm bored, tired, stressed out and depressed and people will empathise - a privilege not given to many people in paying jobs, such as teachers!
I am my own boss.
I have time to renew old friendships and make new ones.
See, I definitely want what I've got. Hope you do too....
