      The best laid plans of mice and men........ I have my whole week planned down to every last minute and I've done a schedule for everything and suddenly bam it all goes to pot ....... normally as I don't drink so I'm not reaching for the sherry or the white wine – my vice would be a bar of chocolate or a big bag of crisps preferably prawn cocktail loaded with additives causing my crash and burn two hours later – apples do not look appealing when your stressed.
      This morning at 9am we were asked if Alice could give a big presentation on social networking and starting your own online business which is easy as we do this in our work but she has never spoken publicly before and not in front of a prestigious audience – so panic stations first have to have a picture taken for this website, second do the PowerPoint presentation and third write the dummy cards and last but no means least build her confidence up so she can pull this off.......
      When your mum (me) is a walking gob on legs and has an opinion on everything and has already done so much in this arena – its nerve wracking and I huge part of me wants to say "hey don't worry I'll do it for you" and another part of me knows she has to do this and who wants to listen to an older bird chatting about Facebook and the power of teen brands......

      So an banana and two oranges later we have the picture done to her satisfaction and the basic PowerPoint ideas done ....and no secret chocolate wrappers hidden in my handbag .......Plus I have my Fabbers on Spark People to fall back on when the going gets tough and I feel the urge ....
