Hello and welcome to my blog. The name of my blog comes from a quote that has been attributed to Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon, the late Queen Mother. The quote is as follows: ‘Wouldn’t it be terrible if you’d spent all your life doing everything you were supposed to do, didn’t drink, didn’t smoke, didn’t eat things, took lots of exercise, and suddenly, one day, you were run over by a big red bus and, as the wheels were crunching into you, you’d say, “Oh my God, I could have got so drunk last night”. That’s the way you should live your life, as if tomorrow you’ll be run over by a big red bus.’

And so here I am, margarita in hand, trying to learn how to live that way. I have always believed that if there is something you want to try, you should just go for it. If you live more than one life, it seems you only remember it when you are under hypnosis, so what is the point? And yet there are so many things I have meant to do and haven’t.

I am at a crossroads. I am looking for a new job. I a trying to figure out what I am meant to do. I am trying to make sure that I won’t have a second thought if tomorrow I am run over by the big red bus.
