Eyes on the prize

Summer is here. Time is flying by fast, speeding up like a train leaving the station. Summer is here and I don't get to enjoy it as I used to. But it's for a good cause. I'm preparing to leave. To have a life of my own. And however tough and different it might be I know I won't be alone and I know I can manage. And for the first time I will have a say when it comes to how far am I willing to sacrifice for others. Mind you, I'm not saying I won't do it ever again. But it'll be my choice. And you can't put a price on that.

That's how I feel right now...

Luckily in about 40 days I won't have to ever again :)

Conquering cultural references

- I feel like my whole life I've been traveling on the B417 when I could have been on the M6.
- What do you want to go to Birmingham for?*

I got 50% of that reference even before the punch line. Yay for me!

Shapes of times to come

Last thrusday a bit before dinner I arrived in Walsall once again. The wolf had the week off and so we had ourselves a three-day weekend. And gosh did I need one! Anyhoot, yesterday was the first time ever we spent a work day together, on both sides. And even though we weren't at full speed, it was quite an experience. Getting up at seven, then he off at work and me working from my laptop at home. Me finding my own way around this house and this country. He coming home and we fitting your schedules and routines together. And I have to say that even though it wasn't perfect, for a first time we did amazingly well. But then again, we always do ;)

And now that the second day is coming to an end I have only one thought in my mind: I like where this is going and I can't wait to have more of this. Like every single day :)

Come to the whimsical side...

... life is so much sunnier here. Especially if you have a wolf to share your life with <3
