Life is a roller coaster of ups and downs.
Or maybe it’s like a swim in the sea where there are beautiful fish and man-eating sharks; colourful corals and deadly jellyfish; calm waters and treacherous whirlpools.
Or perhaps it’s more like a dodgy minestrone soup with tasty bits, and chewy bits you wish you hadn’t discovered.
Simultaneously there are wonderful things and really bloody awful things going on in our lives.
But then, isn’t that always the case?
