If in life you have someone whom you consider to be ‘the one that got away’ Isn’t it slightly strange that,that exact person could well be thinking the complete opposite? Eg~they might think of you and say oh thank goodness he/she got away?! Two sides and all that.
Do you ever wish you could see yourself through someone elses eyes every now and then?
During a conversation this weekend, I was told I view the world through ‘rose tinted glasses’ interestingly this is something I have been told before in a few different ways, I don’t feel that’s a bad thing, its true I do try and find positives where I can~although when the hoover decided to throw its entire contents across the landing tonight~positive vibes were definitely failing me!!
I have decided I like the title ‘the girl with the rose tinted glasses’ so I’m claiming that,even though I’m 43yrs old! ❤x
In this ever changing world we find ourselves in ~one thing that never changes is the love that holds us all together even during times that we must be apart.
Today and everyday~we celebrate the love, the memories and the wonderful times ahead. In a year we have said goodbye to our wonderful nan ,we have also welcomed new arrivals and one of my beautiful nieces (I am blessed to have 3) has become a Mummy for the first time too.
I simply cannot wait for us all to be together to hug you all and to meet my new great niece and nephew.
Hannah was sitting in front of her friend nursing her second coffee of the morning. Well she began it went something like this….
‘I rushed home from work, was super organised and had already sorted my outfit~even down to the shoes and handbag!’
‘After a quick shower~ hair and make~up done, I was ready to leave. I decided to put some false nails on and that new lipstick I brought last Saturday when we were in town, do you remember?’
‘Oh yes Sally replied ‘the dark red one,you said you thought it might be too dark for your skin tone but well sod it, you brought it anyway saying and I quote ‘ its about time I tried something a bit more adventurous’.
Hmm that’s right Hannah mused~swirling her spoon around in the hot coffee,watching the ripples it was making. Followed by me saying ‘ life doesn’t get much more adventurous than trying online dating whilst hanging on to my thirties for dear life!’
‘Anyhow’I snap back into the room,stop stirring my coffee and continue..
‘I arrived 5 minutes early, I was nervous but I really shouldn’t of been, he looked exactly like his profile picture, we had loads in common and laughed and chatted all night. He text me when I got home and asked me if I would like to go for dinner on Saturday night.’
‘Obviously I said yes and now you need to help me decide what to wear for date number 2.’
Sally’s eyes were wide open, looking incredulously at me across the table.
‘What’s that face for I asked?’Is it that unbelievable that someone would want a second date with me??’
‘No of course not,don’t be daft I just can’t get over the fact that
a). you were on time and
b). You have agreed to go for dinner with him.’
Try as I might,I just couldn’t hold the laughter in anymore, my coffee went down the wrong way and my eyes filled with tears and the effort of trying to regain my composure in the middle of a packed coffee shop (where it has to be said one or two of the baristas may of caught my eye on arrival).
Finally I pulled myself together and said ‘sorry I just couldn’t resist, the date went nothing like that at all. Let me get another coffee and I’ll start from the beginning…….
