If I could Turn Back Time....

As Cher would say....

I had a thing going on this blog for a while that I used song titles as the title of my entries. I might try it again. Since Shimelle gave her prompt yesterday, Cher's song has been in my head....also I saw that particular music video at the weekend....wow, she had some guts to wear an 'outfit' like that!

Anyway, today's prompt from Shimelle's class is:

If you could travel in time for just one day, where would you go and what would you do?

Hmmmmn, this is a real tough one. Not that I love every minute of every day (I just spent the last 3 hours with my accountant!) but I believe in living in the moment and what's done is done. Also I believe that the future holds what the future holds and maybe we shouldn't try to work out what's going to happen. So that rules out going back in time (in my lifetime) or going to the future (in my lifetime)....

The only thing I might do is go back and tell myself to appreciate things more....

So, for example, I'd go back to see myself as a child and tell myself that it's a wonderful childhood and that I am so lucky...of course it's only now I realise it fully. I think overall I have enjoyed life and haven't stressed too much about e.g. exams, lovelife, etc, so maybe I'd reassure myself that it will all work itself out.
Here's me on my 5th birthday...same kitchen as yesterday's photo was taken - ironically enough!
One other thing I wouldn't mind doing is going back to see my husband as a child. I think he had a great childhood too, by the memories he mentions, but it would be nice to see what he was like back then! Hopefully our kids will have similarly good memories of their childhood....better documented though (by their obsessive scrapping mother!)
