OK, so where was I? Oh yes, the second five things that make me happy, courtesy of Smitten by Britain.
Hmmmm. I can't be that miserable surely. Think, think, think.
6. Friends. - I'm proud to say that I'm brilliant at keeping up with people. Even before t'Internet I would write long, long letters. Even before I moved thousands of miles away from most of my friends I was a letter writer. God knows what people thought when they opened the envelope to find three whole sides of tiny little writing. Good job it was semi-amusing. And now, with FB I'm in almost daily contact with a few friends in Australia, loads in the UK and several here. I love it. I usually come back from my annual UK visit absolutely knackered because I'll have spent most of the time travelling round the country visiting friends. Good times.
7. Dancing. - Not that I do it much these days, but I danced all the time (ballet, tap and modern) till I was 18. I have even taken some adult ballet classes since then, but it's really hard work and nowadays I prefer to fling myself around randomly. Whenever we go to parties with a DJ (that would be rarely) I'm up on the floor more than I'm sitting at the table. A few months ago we went to one such party with the teenagers and the Man-child was furious with me. (The Queenager was dancing right there with me.) Apparently I had had a pretty cool image at school until that very moment. Who cares whether a bunch of spotty fourteen year olds thought I was cool? I was having a great time. Oh and wait till you see me on a hard wood floor after two glasses of Pinot Grigio - RiverDance eat your heart out!
