Well….aren’t we excited?
Firstly, according to the weather man we are finally going to have some sun. The Gulf Stream that normally moves up to Scotland has been sitting below England causing the wet weather…which is great because we have so much water now that we don’t have a hosepipe ban.
Yeah…can you believe it? This wet island has been in a drought…well in the south anyway. Hosepipe bans I associate with Africa not England…
Officially our sunny weather starts tomorrow. But looking out the window – it seems it might be today.
Which means Scotland will be the only place in the UK (besides Ireland – don’t know which is the wetter of the too!) still being bombarded by rain.
I remember one year we went up to Scotland for our summer holiday with the children and had three weeks of iffy weather, while down South it was the most fabulously sunny weather ever. But despite the midges and damp weather whilst camping, we had the most amazing holiday. A magical place Scotland – don’t think it would be the same without the wet or misty weather.
Secondly, we are off to find our rings for our handfasting in France. It never ceases to amaze me how far more flexible this new entity within hubby is…all an amazing learning curve and I have to get out of the idea that he will react in a certain way…because he is no longer the same person within. Gets a bit confusing at times.
So this handfasting we will have is all part of the re-affirmation between this new entity and I of our vows. I am sooo looking forward to searching for rings. Haven’t done it for…well…since we got married – the first entity and I, that is :-) – 25 years ago.
Thirdly, I have also negotiated a deal with Darrell Leakey. After much discussion, he is going to carve a re-affirmation Maju stone for hubby and I for our ceremony in France. I am so looking forward to seeing what he makes for us. Darrell is a really lovely and obliging man.
Fourthly…wow…lots to celebrate…although a trip to the dentist is not really a celebration :-(
During the week one of my fillings chipped. Oh no, I thought, a huge bill. So I kept focusing on the idea that it wouldn’t be a problem, etc. And...I asked the elemental who looks after my teeth to help out.
I had the appointment yesterday…and was sorta dreading it…because of the bill, the injection, the drilling, etc.
My lovely dentist (ooh he is so yummy – tall dark and handsome – with a very unpronounceable name, I think he is from the Middle East somewhere – I have a penchant for swarthy men – look at my hubby :-)) took one look and said, ‘I can repair this as it is only small chip and we won’t need anaesthetic.’ Wow…a filling without anaesthetic…never thought I’d see the day…and it only cost a fraction of what we’d normally have paid. Woohoo.
So, suitably repaired and happy, I’m off to buy some rings.
