I must confess to feeling a little tired whilst tapping today’s entry. In theory, I should have slept like a log last night - what a strange expression, do logs sleep?! I’d enjoyed a few glasses of white wine, which always relaxes my mood, and I was in a lovely comfortable double bed, with my friend Annie.
When I finally drifted off to sleep, I had a very scrambled dream of flying genies, advertisements, bags of sweets and engagement rings.
The engagement rings featuring in my dream makes perfect sense, as my dear friend Annie is now engaged. Her boyfriend proposed to her whilst they were dining out during their holiday. It all sounded very romantic, and her ring is a shiny, stylish, beautiful collection of diamonds. I have never seen her as content and happy as she is now, and obviously I am over the moon for her.
We had a very pleasant evening last night, a delicious plateful of spaghetti bolognaise, chilled white wine and browsing through brochures of possible venues for her forthcoming wedding. One venue in particular looked very magical and atmospheric, and I am looking forward to her ‘big day’ already.
A couple of years ago I would have been a little cynical towards planning a wedding. But that’s because my own one proved to be a disaster! Being cynical is not really in my nature, so I have thankfully moved on from this emotion, and I do believe in falling in love again, and learning from my mistakes. Plus, seeing my friend so happy and excited towards her wedding, and so content with her man, restores my faith in relationships.
Here’s to having faith restored in happy, fulfilling relationships! (And falling asleep faster tonight.)
