During a clean up last year I found letters she sent to me from Europe in 1985. I figure she'll love to re read them so I've put them in a scrap book album with photos of us in the 80's. (I can't put them here as they are not just me and I need permission for 80's photos surely!)
These letters are her hopes and dreams for life (and mine too I guess) God, we were so innocent!

Now Jenny Downham's Before I die. Again a first chapter, a first paragraph even.About a boy who looks at her 'as if I'm beautiful' oh so poignant. And isn't that such a feeling. (ok getting mushy sorry)
And also the 19th wife which is a fascinating read -about the latter day saints and the polygamy and how it affects the women (and the men) Great read if you are looking for one!
Ok so I guess the point is - just read what you like, and even if you don't like it, it may still reach out to you or change the way you see the world.
And we all need someone to look at us as if we are beautiful!

A bit of a mess but liveable
This is what her father wants her room to be like
Its highly unlikey he will ever get that result, especially since he doesn't bloody live here and stuff like that is not hugely important to us. But I will try (sigh) If only to keep him from yelling at her.
Did her ask her about the cake she made for my friends birthday? No or the scones she made or the sewing she's been doing NO just why her room was a mess. I wonder why we're not together? hmmmm

So today is a super good day to start. They voted for Barack and hopefully change will start in the free world!
So, to borrow from http://meetmeatmikes.blogspot.com/ (I will learn how to link properly tomor - its 10.32pm!)
My nearly 15 yr old boy talks to me (mostly) happy
I had the whole day off and no children til 4.30 happy
My daughter got measured for a new Irish Dancing dress she's very happy
Spent late afternoon drinking champagne and laughing with my best friend very happy and a little tipsy
More Softies arrived for me at the bookshop and Amy Butler's In Stitches arrived in the post (with some beautiful fabric) thanks to http://retromummy.blogspot.com/ happy happy days.
