Busy Busy….

Ok, so I am perfectly well aware that my blogs are neither ground breaking or amazing literature, but they do help to keep me sane.  They let me get out all sorts of things I’m feeling that I don’t have any other release for currently.  Thanks to those of you who have found me and read them!

Right, to business then!

I haven’t blogged for a few days as I have been insanely busy (see previous blog)  I did have a fab night with my friend M, we went out for a quick bite to eat, and ended up bringing huuuuuuge slices of cake back to hers, which we then consumed while drinking wine and watching a movie.  Eventually we decided that getting ready to go out would be a good idea, at 9pm…We were so pleased with oursleves all dressed up we took some pictures!  And if I was clever enough I’d have uploaded one.  We got to the casino just after 10 and were back at hers by 12.30  Not quite the night we were expecting, but made a lovely change of scene, and a fab excuse to put on a dress and heels.  As you probably don’t know much about me yet I’ll tell you I am very much NOT a dress and heels kinda gal!  So with tea, toast and in pyjamas we sat setting the world to rights till 2.30 in the morning.  I am so rubbish at late nights now, I must be getting old!  It was nice to stay over, but I was so tired the next day I went home and to bed, to try and prepare for the next few days!!

Sunday evening found me driving to meet my man, a 2 hour drive, but knowing we had two nights and an entire day together I was sooooooo excited.  And it was everything I wanted it to be.  He certainly wanted to make up for last time!!!  My man is a workaholic and I am always amazed he can take time off work to spend an evening with me without working, he took Monday off pretty much completely!  He didn’t go into the office at the crack of dawn so we had a lovely lie in…..went out for a lovely drive through the countryside and ended up in Stratford Upon Avon.  I have to say there’s not a lot to see there!  It might be different in the summer, but at this time it’s pretty dull.  But it did give us much needed time together, being able to go out and hold hands and kiss in public was priceless.  So we returned to our hotel room where he did have a little work to do, as did I, so we sat at our respective laptops for a couple of hours, with the odd kiss and cuddle interrupting…. And another night in his arms….bliss….it was just a bugger that I had to get up at 6 to drive back to get to work for 9am….so I was the one leaving at the crack of dawn this time.

And Lastly the ballet…beautiful, stunning, amazing, and oh my goodness….those men’s tights leave very little to the imagination!!!!!!!! It was a long trip, but so worth it, my step-brother knows the producer and arranged for us to go backstage in the interval to see the stage and meet some of the dancers, a bit tricky since they were all Russian and spoke very little English!  But my dance mad daughter was absolutely thrilled and it’s certainly made her want to try extra hard in her ballet lessons….though I’m fairly sure I won’t be seeing her up on stage too soon!

    I guess you’re not much of a gambler either then. Still it was a good excuse to get glammed up for a girly evening.
    Your man ought to be mightily impressed that you are prepared to drive all that way to see him. I certainly would be. It sounds like at last you could experiment with seeing what is feels like to be a couple, I guess you liked that then. It’s good you had a little down time where it wasn’t all full throttle action. Let’s face it, most of real life is like that.
    I’m delighted that you liked the ballet. Not my thing at all. I can see how clever and disciplined it is but it just doesn’t do anything for me at all. And as for men in tights….. well!
