The reason I started this thread is because I cannot believe the massive pressure I'm now under, and I was so hopeful that June was to be the start of a new more relaxed life. Why can I not live for the moment? I had put such great hope into the fact that after my exams were over I would have more time, be more relaxed, more happy... Now I'm buried under about 20 books on the welfare state which need to be read by the weekend, I'm starting a job to get money because we are suffering, and I need to start my executive PA course asap so that I can have a back up plan when I graduate. Add to that packing the house (and now I think I have to ditch half my lovely furniture to fit it in the smaller place) moving kids schools, etc, etc. I know in the grand scale of things I have my health, I have beautiful children, we have enough money to survive (more than most). Why can't I just get on with what I have, why do I keep thinking NEXT month will be better, and then getting hugely depressed when it isn't! Is there a key to this? Or is it something I will learn when I "grow up"?!
