May 2014

on what I've been meaning to say

I've had so many things to get off my chest, friends. Late at night and early in the morning, thoughts I must urgently communicate to the internet feverishly occur. I have one of those I-must-do-a-maths-exam-and-I-have-not-studied-AT-ALL dreams and I want to ask you if you have them. Do you? I accidently buy 27 Penguin bars in a moment of weakness and nostalgia and I want to ask you if you remember them. They were half price! Do you? P-p-pick up a penguin? (May only apply to this part of Europe.) I want to draw four penguin bars and tell you how the fourth penguin I ate was The Penguin of Regret. I want to point out that the Alicia Florrick walks like she has stone wellies on. I want to stare out of the window.

BUT THERE IS NO TIME. There was DONKEY DRAMA, The Rerun, (he is better now) further flurries of documentation for the American agency AND for our renewal, some work, some more work, many evening outings. Yoga, framing pictures for a show, life-drawing, drawing people in their shops, and PARENTS. I have much to offload on the subject of my parents. I sense a big life change looming and I am scurrying around in the face of it, half-hopeful, half-fearful, busily preparing. 

NONETHELESS. It is Sunday morning and before I leap into my car to visit the above-mentioned family members, here opens a moment of free time. We visited the notary on Thursday night and he put in two hours sealing and stamping so now our dossier is ready to send to the Authority. YAY. He was a terrible foosterer; and his house was impressively messy; he couldn't resist mocking me with a sarcastic HEAVENS, NO when I told him I had never used the JB's surname, and he kept telling us how arduous and lengthy the adoption process has been of late, (No! REALLY?) but I liked him, because he helped us, he was attentive and stamped, signed and sealed in a trusty manner. 

We have also sent off our renewal documents this week too, and these two things seem momentous and post-worthy.

A milestone:

(Green Irish seals. Pretty, eh? The red velvet seemed appropriate. :)

I hope all is well with you and you are enjoying/have enjoyed your Sunday.
Are you?
