The simplicity of my day to day.

No one is correct every time. Tell us about a time you realised you were mistaken.
Moi? Wrong? Surely not.😂
We all make mistakes. Well everyone except my husband, of course.
It can be very hard to admit when you were wrong, or perhaps just mistaken. I have been proven wrong about people throughout my long life, although not often!
I usually go with my gut when I meet a person for the first time. Not very scientific I admit but it has served me well over the years. Most people have proved me right for good or bad. However, when met my granddaughter’s husband for the first time I just couldn’t warm to him. I was in protective mode. He wasn’t good enough for this treasure of mine. It’s not that I’ve disliked all her boyfriends, in fact I’ve loved them and have been disappointed when she’s given them up and sent them on their way. No. Joe just didn’t seem to fit in. I think the feeling was mutual. But I’ve discovered I was wrong about him. I admit it. He’s proved to be the best person in the world for her.
There have been a few mistakes when travelling. We missed a train in India once. I’d booked a first class sleeper, but turned up a day late. That was a doozy of a mistake. We ended up in a carriage sitting up all night with hundreds of others. Bad mistake, that one.
Another time I booked a flight into the Philippines but the airport which I thought was near the capital, Manila, was in fact four hours drive away. Missed a connection that time. Another bad mistake.
So okay, I’m not infallible. Shoot me.
