Everything is relative...

Everything is relative. A concept my Dad explained to me when I was a child by asking me to choose between a Rolls Royce and a glass of water and then repeating the question after having asked me to imagine I was in the desert after a full days walk in the sun and nothing to drink.

When I was pregnant with Emma nearly three years ago, I had expected to have morning sickness and was pleasantly surprised when it was in fact quite mild and short lasting.
These days, because of those memories, I feel a lot worse than I thought I would feel the second time around.

Expectations can be as much of a context as a real life situation.
