I've had a great weekend!
I went to see my friend Kath, who had a winter solstice party. She lives on the
coast, about two and a half hours drive from Canberra. I went there on Saturday
afternoon, and returned late Sunday afternoon.
At the party I met this lovely woman who shall be called Missy. We hit it off straight away, enjoying some great and stimulating conversation. There were a
lot of people at the party, with lots of kids there as well. At one point Missy
asked where I was sleeping. I said that I'd probably have to fight for some floor
space there, otherwise I'd just end up driving home. She offered me a spare bed
at her place if I was interested. Interested? A bit of an understatement...!! So I
took her up on her offer and followed her home at around midnight or
thereabouts. After she put her kids to bed (4 yo daughter and 7 yo son), we sat
up and talked until around 3am, then we went to bed... in different beds. *grin*
I'm forward, but not that forward! I don't like making any moves on 'first dates',
and this was certainly a special first date. So on Sunday (yesterday) we all
(including her kids) went for a walk on this nice beach, and then we had a bit of
lunch at a restaurant overlooking the ocean. It was a lovely, relaxing day.
At around 2pm I had to leave, as I had to return to Canberra, but I had to stop in
on Kath to say goodbye first. While I was at Kath's, Missy rang Kath to tell me
to come back with the baby seat... Hehehe. So I took that back and then came
I rang her tonight to say hello and all that... she told me that she was really glad
that she met me, and that she likes me. I told her that the feeling was mutual,
that I liked her as well. It was a nice conversation on the phone, lasting for just
over an hour. I think we're both very happy that we've met each other....
She used to live in Canberra as well, so she's hoping to come up here and visit
me every now and again to "do some shopping". Naturally I said yes. Oh, she
also wants to try out my spa... *smile*
I'm looking forward to seeing where this will go.
your present happiness
by a distant misery,
which may never
come at all?
For every substantial grief
has twenty shadows
and most of the shadows
are of your own making.
