I follow Stephen’s blog!
But posts like this one do rather rub salt into the wound.
Don’t get me wrong I’m really pleased for them and it’s wonderful to read how some couples ‘go the distance’ and re-discover the passion, but I also do get a rather heavy dose of “why couldn’t we have taken that route!” Especially when I think how Alex dithered, apologised and said all the caring things he did……. sometimes it just is a bit of a bugger!!
It’s OK I’m not running for my Chilean Mine. I’m sad of course but actually what I’d really like to do right now, is to beat the living daylights out of Alex – possibly with one of the heavier life coaching tomes I’m reading at the moment!!
In the meantime life continues to throw excitement my way. My main PC’s harddrive died earlier this week and, naturally, I hadn’t backed up the data for a while! The PC has been condemned by my IT wizard at work so a new one is now winging its way towards me courtesy of my credit card! My TV has taken a unilateral decision not to allow me to watch BBC2, insisting that BBC1 is preferable – so just changes channels every 30 seconds!
I’m off on my first NLP course this afternoon, having survived a tetchy Panto rehearsal last night where the director wound herself into a frenzy of fury at our efforts in the interminable first Act. She said she pitied the audience – well on that count I agree with her, it goes on forever!! Actually treating us as adults and discussing the issues would have been far more beneficial for everyone as we wouldn’t have ignored her and she wouldn’t have sent her blood pressure into the stratosphere!! But hey, darlings, not so much ‘fun’!
Act 2 is better – mainly because its funnier, shorter, and, of course, us ladies all dress up as slave girls in our harem costumes – though 2 girls insisted on wearing vests under their costumes which gave a rather quaint and unsexy look to their midriffs! This of course enraged the director! It’s also slightly worrying that the Sultan’s harem range in age from 16 to 60 but who cares!!
We also have a leading girl who is – how can I put it – in need of dieting – to the point that she looks as though the principal boy has already had his wicked way…. if you follow me!!
This Panto could be funny for all the wrong reasons!!
