when would you turn it back to?

Life is a learning curve but if I could turn the clock back then i'd certainly change a thing or two!!

Is there anything in your life you'd like to change or maybe do differently?

Sometimes I think there are lots of things I would go back and change. We all make mistakes and bad decisions. But all those times have led me to where I am now and I am quite happy and content so I guess it wouldn't be wise to change a thing.

Happy Easter efc.
Yep.....I would turn it back a couple of years and really listen to what was being said to me. Then I wouldn't be sitting here now thinking 'he was right and I was wrong'.

A friend of mine has removed all clocks from his home. He keeps natural time and lives only for the present. His only regret is that he didn't do this years ago.
My Brother phoned me to ask if he could come and visit at the weekend, I was busy that weekend so I said make it the following weekend, he committed suicide the Friday night. Unbeknown to me, he was having problems. So I wish I could turn the clock back to allow him to visit as he wished!!

Nice to know i'm not alone in wanting to turn the clock back!

RATTER - what a sad story, so sorry to hear about your brother.
Change some people some places.But as you cant i just got to get on like the rest eh???
Ratter I totally understand where you are coming from. The exact same thing happened to Mr. Aprilis. In fact it was the Easter Bank Holiday weekend 6 years ago that it happened.

We had not long moved house and we just wanted a quiet weekend. No going away, no having guests to stay. Mr. Aprilis's brother did the same thing; rang to ask if he could come and stay for the weekend and we said we would rather he make it the May Bank Holiday weekend instead. After all, it was only a couple of weeks away (that year Easter fell in the middle of April).

On the Tuesday when everyone went back to work, my Bro-In-Law phoned in sick and was found by his girlfriend when she returned home from work at the end of the day. He had locked himself in the garage and put a hosepipe on the car exhaust. He was found in his pyjamas and had apparently been there all day. The next door neighbour had been knocking on the door because he could hear the engine running and smelled petrol fumes but got no answer. He tried the garage door but it was locked so he couldn't do anything. It was horrific.

So many times we have wondered if we had let him come to stay would we have prevented him from doing this to himself. Or would he have done it anyway later on? We have beaten ourselves up for years over it. The worst thing about it was that to this day nobody has any idea why he did it.

Despite what I said previously I think I would definitely change the decision about that weekend even if it wouldn't have made any difference in the long run.
