Fickle or what?

Have In Mind

As the saying goes, women are fickle creatures who quite often change their mind about things. Decision making can be a yes, no or maybe then switch at the blink of an eye. I used to think that I was good at making decisions but often as not I found myself changing my mind on many occasions. It is frustrating to me that sometimes I cannot make up my mind though I have to say those things under consideration are most of the time small. In design and construction for me they will be the smaller things, the details for major things like projects usually get started upon straight away. I will have already given those things plenty of time for thought long beforehand. One thing that amuses E is when I cannot decide upon what to eat at mealtimes. I will say one thing and within seconds will have changed my mind in favour of something else. All well and good but then I will revert to my first choice soon after! On Sunday (8 th) after a reasonably good night’s sleep I thought I would go for a walk before breakfast but on arriving downstairs had second thoughts after E had asked me what I had planned for the day. I ‘hummed and ared’ as we say but finally decided a complete rest would be wisest and I would forsake going for a walk. I more or less achieved that and was glad I stuck to that decision knowing I had plans for the week ahead regarding the cellar storage room project. As the work on that project has progressed I have changed my mind on several things along the way. The latest one is regarding the rear wall of the room which I have endeavoured to seal and it appears to have been successful but I have decided to render it with concrete too. When that has been done I will seal it again. It would be a shame to have stripped the room bare, refurbished it and later discover the paint was falling off the wall because I had taken a short-cut. So the work will take longer but I always knew it would because I keep changing my mind by moving the goal posts!
