We recently had the pleasure of watching a good friend get married in a lovely garden ceremony. It was a refreshing experience, you could see the love and excitement in the couples faces, the shear joy that they were going to spend the rest of their lives together. I love that they are so young yet willing to make a life-long commitment. It made my heart skip a beat. During the speeches, a groomsman told a story about the groom – on his bucks night someone had said ' you look too young to be getting married' to which he replied 'haven't you ever heard of true love?'
For as long as I can remember Anooke has been waiting for 2010. Waiting for 2010 to finish, and with it her time at school. It used to feel like an eternity away, like something that would never come, then all of a sudden it's here and she's finished her last exam. She's free – for a couple of months at least. Now she can listen to 'easy listening' and focus on her needlework.
Do you ever wish you could play an instrument? Anooke and I talk about 'getting the band back together', although we never had a band in the first place, nor can either of us play any instruments. I'd like to think if we could we'd play covers of Simon and Garfunkel's "Cecilia" and Nancy Sinatra's "Sugartown" and "How Does That Grab You?". We'd be a hit.
