Mum probably won't still be here when I graduate. She will probably die whilst I'm still at uni. I have to cram twenty or thirty years of visits into twenty or thirty days/weeks/months. I have to ask all my questions now; predict what I might want to know in years to come. Each birthday might be Mum's last, so rather than forget it I want to make it special.

I began thinking about this in depth a few weeks ago, and wanted to do a spot survey with some of my friends. I asked everyone I encountered last week, what their biggest regret was (that they'd feel comfortable sharing). I was amazed at how many people told me that they don't have any regrets in life.

When considering my 16 year old self, I see a naïve, but ambitious, girl who wants to make her parents proud. At 18, she knows she is good at Law - her exam results say so - and she can't think of anything she would rather do at university. So, that's the path she chooses.

It is not just France's credibility that's at stake over the way it has handled a sale of two Mistral class assault ships to Russia, but the credibility of the whole EU Common Position on arms transfers.

So why do politicians appear to bottle the difficult decisions? The easy answer is that they do not want to take a chance with paying the electoral consequences of such decisions. The balance between 'winners' and 'losers' would be such that any government taking the action would be punished at the next election, it is said.

Make Better Life Choices

There are certain choices in life that are "difficult". Often, this is not because we lack the information we need to make them. Neither is it because it's hard to gauge which option will benefit us more. Rather, it's because these choices are defining - they define who we are as human beings.

Decisions, decisions, decisions. Life is made up of a million decisions. Some of them are big decisions, like whether you want to have children, and what you want to do for a living, and others are little decisions, like what to have for breakfast, or what to watch at the cinema this Saturday.

The Bedroom Tax - the most ill-conceived, misbegotten, malicious and counter-productive piece of misguided legislation since - well, since the Poll Tax - may just have been dealt a fatal blow by a Tribunal judge wielding the trusty old sword of common-sense.

So now we have a house on a road with trees lining the street and an alarming fascination with vintage furniture. It's almost as exciting as the time I thought Jon Snow winked at me in a guest lecture. He didn't.

For some time now I have been ignoring my intuition on a certain subject, and allowing my intellect to bargain it's way forward. Of course two spiritual books down the road, I should know better, but sometimes things are easier written than done!
