Hindsight is a wonderful thing...it allows us to see all our mistakes with the clear knowledge of the consequences.
Sometimes it is just one monumental error and at other times, it is a sequence of small events and misjudgements ...like these:
- Visiting my son in the U.S. in the middle of last year...when I should have been doing a chainsaw course at the Community House.
- Suggesting The Cook do the course in my absence.
- Purchasing a chainsaw.
- Encouraging her to use the chainsaw.
- Mentioning that that tree outside the lounge-room blocked the view of the ridge.
- Turning my back.
She is usually pretty neat in the kitchen so I am hoping she finishes the job cleans up this mess!
