Now if you had presented all of those things to me a year ago when this is what you're going to be like left in your face and said no no no but we've got a phrase all house which has become so ingrained in how we do things that were always up to have a go with something always have a go and it comes largely from and it's been such a useful phrase. I want to share it with you. It comes from my husband's boarding school days. Now my husband when you meet him if you ever meet him when you when you meet him next week you won't instantly think oh. Yeah boarding school. He's not porsche and he told me this story about this. Particular instructor lay had do army stuff once a week. They got to hang out with major. Cobb who is who was the army cadet commanding officer and it was major cops pep talks which have now lived on in our household owned it was all about shooting rifles going on skirmishes running with backpacks in the middle of the night doing orienteering. A lot of the stuff that my husband really doesn't like the involves getting cold and getting wet. I mean who does that kind of thing while some people do but anyway but may jakob realize that. These fourteen year old lads perhaps could easily reject this thrilling hoppy of running around with rifles and whatnot and so his pep talk. She's to involve him saying have ago.

Maybe about certain things Swimming a full length on your own jumping doing a dive in Going for a long walk that your parents are drinking you on the phrase half ago you might like it sort of got rolling their eyes because we said it so much but it really stinks. It's a really nice light touch way of saying half ago you don't have to commit to it forever and ever just test yourself out. How little experiment to see what you are reacting to him.
