When will I see you again?

We had to let our old Skoda Felicia go. It was a 10-year old car and we had it only for 2 and a half years but it became so dear to me and my husband. Yes, it's one of those mushy days for me again. It was our first car together and our first property after getting married. It took us to a lot of places - from all places in Norfolk to Lancashire, The Lake District, Yorkshire and back.
For the last 12 months, it's been having problems of all sorts. Then recently, the suspension collapsed. It was dangerous to drive and expensive to repair. So, hubby and I talked about it and decided to just give the good old car up and get a new one. It's just like my old computer 3 months ago, isn't it? Giving up something that's been there for quite awhile isn't easy. But sometimes you have to.
You know what? If I had the money, just if, you know what I would do? I'd have our little red Skoda repaired, all re-apholstered, cleaned, re-painted and everything else to make it look new again. But, then, I didn't have that kind of money, did I?
So, goodbye to you, our dear little old red Skoda....thank you for taking me to work for more than 2 years, for taking us safely to The Lake District on my birthday this year...and for all those times you sheltered us from the rain in Mundesley.

Has the world gotten small?

Warning: If you are not in the mood to listen to someone whining and moaning, don't read. Mood: A little bit fed up.
Saturday: Hubby took me to Fakenham. My first time there. It wasn't grand but something new to me as we are always in Norwich and sometimes I just feel like the world has gotten so small that I only get to see Norwich, Norwich, and Norwich. Sunday: You guessed it right - Norwich. Well, we went to the tip to chuck some rubbish for recycling (yes, we're trying to be a little bit environment-friendly) then headed to Asda in, hold your breath, yes - Norwich.
Home now. Yes, home. So nice to sit on the couch, by the fire, watching Mr Bean on Holiday.
For the whole week, it's going to be Norwich again. Monday to Friday.
I want to think there's life after 5-days of Norwich. Is it Norwich driving me mad or is it just me?

Remember these shoes?

Remember these beautiful red shoes that I was supposed to wear to the Summer Ball not too long ago? I finally wore them! We went to a banquet a few weeks ago. I totally forgot to tell you about it. I know, I know, you want to hear if they killed my feet. No, not really. Surprisingly, they were comfortable. I got home with a smile on my face, yes, because I could still walk after wearing them! Ha!

Born for each other

Do you remember David Pomeranz? He is a singer that became really popular in the Philippines a few years ago. I remember him having a concert with Sharon Cuneta and also guesting in Sharon's show. I don't find him exceptionally good but there is one song that he sang that I really really like. I have been listening to romantic music lately. No, I haven't taken any romantic pills lately but for some reason, this song keeps playing in my head. I keep thinking of getting married all over again to my husband and dancing a slow dance with him once again with all our friends and family looking, in the soft, lovely tune of David Pomeranz's Born For You. You know why I love the song? It's because every word of it seems to match the things that I want to say to my husband every day. Imagine the odds of the two of us meeting! I was halfway across the world and really, it seemed that the powers of the Universe conspired for us to meet - yes, exactly what the song says! That was five years ago when we met. ..and 3 months from now, hubby and I will be celebrating our 3rd Year Wedding Anniversary. It seems almost yesterday when we got married. Now we're turning 3! I didn't want to wait for December to sing this to my better half, so here's my favourite song for you, dear husband! Mwah! Born For You David Pomeranz Too many billion people Running around the planet What is the chance in heaven That you'd find your way to me Tell me what is this sweet sensation It's a miracle that's happened Though I searched for an explanation Only one thing it could be That I was born for you It was written in the stars Yes I was born for you And the choice was never ours It's as if the powers of the universe Conspired to make you mine And till the day I die I blessed the day that I was born for you Too many foolish people Trying to come between us None of them seems to matter When I looked into your eyes Now I know why I belong here In your arms I found the answer Somehow nothing would seemed so wrong here If they'd only realized That I was born for you And that you were born for me And in this random world This was clearly meant to be What we have the world Could never understand Or ever take away And till the day I die I blessed the day that I was born for you What we have the world Could never understand Or ever take away And as the years go by Until the day I die I blessed the day that I was born for you

Who is Mary Beeho?

Mood: Baffled

Today, I woke up with a name in my head. I had a very strange dream that I would like to share with you. I dreamed of my father introducing me to someone whose name was Mary Beeho. In my dream, she seemed to be a very important person to my father and she had a name badge from which I was able to read and get the correct spelling of her name - Mary Beeho. I have never heard of this name. I have never known of anyone whose name is Mary Beeho. So I got up and looked it up on the internet. There was only one very exact information and it looked like an obituary. It says: Mary K. Beeho, Born: Bath, Avon, England 1871. Died: Post 1881. Family: Beeho. Click here to see the link so you know what I'm talking about.

I sent my father a text message asking if he knew anyone by this name and he said no. I know I shouldn't really be bothered by a strange dream. After all, it is only a dream. But I have always believed that dreams are telling us something. Sometimes it even leads you to some information that you need or gives you some guidance.

I have been having really strange dreams the past few months and some of them even strangely happened. Like my husband losing two of his teeth. Weeks before he lost them, I had a dream that he was losing them, that they were very loose and were about to come off.

And now this.

If you know who Mary Beeho is or if you are this person and you are reading this (now this is really weird!), could you leave me a message? Well, I don't know what you should say, just say something perhaps?

Wells Next-the-Sea

Another very nice place that I will miss in the winter due to it being extremely cold near the sea. So, see you Wells Next-the-Sea after winter!
