Anticipation of excitement

Well it’s almost the bank holiday weekend (hooray) and I’m sitting in a very quiet office, listening to strange musical sounds from St James’s Park. And I’m really excited about the weekend. Because yes, it’s the annual BBQ party – known by some, dreaded by many… Wait, is that the right way round?
The costumes have been made, the shopping lists have been written, the sleeping arrangements have been planned and the parents have been shipped out for supper.
The only teeny tiny problem is the male/female ratio. Why do I seem to have so many male friends? Alternatively, why are so few of the female friends free? Could be worse I guess. The gazbo could be about to collapse, the forecast could be for rain and the grockles could be about to strip the supermarkets like locusts before I get a chance to get near them. Hang on a moment…. Damn.

It'll be fine. It will all be fine. *remembers to breathe*

Quote of the Day

There is a place you can touch a woman that will drive her crazy. Her heart.

Melanie Griffith

New Starts

New starts and new leaves turned and all that newness. My life has suddenly become terribly exciting, starting with a new job in London, a new kitten heading to Dorset and new wonderfulness... You know who you are ;D

So what to do with all this unexpected happy? Its not what I'm used to! First thing was to paint my toenails black - suitably balancing the happy with at least some token un-happy. Its all about the balance. But now, still lots of happy! *remembers to breathe*

Anyway, I am now planning to think about happiness and spread it around a bit. Or I might be totally selfish and keep it all to myself. *cackles*
