“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the harbour. Catch the winds in your sails. Explore, dream, discover.”

Mark Twain

In 20 years time, I’ll be 40 years old. Scary. Better heed Mr Twain’s advice sooner than later!

“Happiness is having a large, caring, close-knit family in another city.”

George Burns

The Jubilee Weekend was spent at my Nan’s in Yorkshire for her 70th birthday, and it was pretty mad, to say the least. All of my little cousins were there and including myself and my sisters, that made 10 children in the house! (though whether I still count as a child is somewhat debatable!) Nontheless, it was good fun to celebrate together.

“Thank you, Daniel, that is very good to know. But if staying here means working within 10 yards of you, frankly, I’d rather have a job wiping Saddam Hussein’s arse.” 
Helen Fielding, Bridget Jones’ Diary
Another witty one liner from my favourite fictional lady, Bridget Jones. Such a great chick-lit, easy to dip into and good cheering-up material too!
