I won't go down that road, there are too many metaphorical speed bumps!

So, there you go... you're motoring along in life.

The car's not the shit-hot model that everyone clamours after, but it's acceptable for purpose...

Then all of a sudden :::thud:::: Ugh! Metaphorical speed bumps. They're hardly ever properly signposted with "Beware: Hazard in you path" or anything even remotely similar. But you don't see it coming, because you're concentrating on other areas, and here we are, at the THUD.

So, what does the THUD of hitting a speedbump tell you? Well, there's the normal "Whoa, slow down! Take note, readjust" but there also had to be an element of "You were coasting, you weren't properly looking out for this, so you weren't prepared. You should be prepared!"

And so, until the next minor hitch comes along, to make you forget about the uncomfortable feeling of hitting the speedbump without preparation, you're over sensitive, and have constant vigilance for other sub-standardly signposted speedbumps.

But, what if it wasn't really a speedbump at all? What if it was just a lump in the road. It's too late. That over-sensitive driving is with you now. Unless you go back down that same road, and take a closer look.

But is it worth it? Is it worth going back over it all, and examining it again? Covering old ground that should be left on the route that was travelled at some stage in the past?

Welcome to Tales of my endless tether


Just when I think I'm getting to the end of my tether, I'm finding it's actually longer than I thought it was.

In this blog, I'll be sharing some of the tales about how I'm doing in relation to being at the end of the tether.
