From time to time, I am given to wondering why I have achieved so little in life generally.
Answers suggested by my friends and family have included ‘laziness’ ‘not trying hard enough’ ‘lack of confidence’ ‘too unfocussed’ ‘too much procrastinating’ ‘laziness’ (again) ‘not wanting to push yourself” ‘too much talking, not enough doing’, ‘not getting up early enough’ and, er, ‘laziness’.
However, I now realise that it WASN’T MY FAULT.
It is, it turns out, all down to my having been born in August.
Thanks goodness for that.
[And, in which case, I can blame the parents.]
