Life and relationships are both a bit of a minefield sometimes.. neither go smoothly and sometimes things can just explode in front of you.

No-one starts a business or a relationship with the view that it will fail.. it is started with excitement, energy, passion and a total belief that this is “right”.

Life and time teaches us otherwise.

Some take things too seriously, some take things too frivalously.. no-one, gets it right, ever.

The great thing is that we can and do bounce back .. our attitude and outlook are all important in how we succeed in EVERY aspect of life.

As many of you know I have recently come out of a “romantic” relationship BUT we are still linked in a “business” relationship.  More importantly we are still friends.

I would not want it any other way.  Sure we can argue at times (even now!), sure we are both ALWAYS right (correction .. Karen is ALWAYS right, I am NEVER wrong!) but we were and are two people with the same values.

Ok it didnt work out for us as a couple, but we have a fantastic legacy of a great wee business, smashing pets and hopefully, a strong friendship that will persevere.

Changes are scary .. but they are also exciting .. hopefully there are some great times ahead for both us.. both in joint business and in our seperate relationships. 

So .. <holding up coffee cup>  Cheers .. thanks .. surely its NOT my turn AGAIN to make coffee!  <grin>
