Our Anniversary

Today is me & Wayne's wedding anniversary.  Two years ago today we were in Jamaica exchanging our vows (oh how I wish I was there today).  To celebrate, we're going to London this weekend for dinner & a play and we'll most likely splurge on a posh hotel for a romantic night out.

Our gift to each other is a painting we saw in a shop on the harbour.  The best part is that we saw the painting on separate occasions and both thought about getting it for each other for our anniversary.  I saw it a few weeks ago and instantly fell in love with it.  It's of a couple kissing on a park bench.  The rest of the painting is blurred and faded.  To me, the simplicity of the the painting speaks volumes on what it's like when you're in love with someone and how sometimes, it feels like there's nothing else in the world but the two of you. 
Wayne saw it last week and over the weekend, told me about it to be safe before buying it.  It really struck me that he felt the same immediate reaction to it as I did.  We're really different when it comes to art so, I find it incredibly romantic that we both love the painting so much.  We're going to walk over and buy it tonight and I can't wait to hang it in our living room!
By the way - Happy Anniversary to our friends Aniela & Herman who were married on the very same day as Wayne and I!

Top 20 Lists

Recently, a magazine here in the UK issued their list of their Top 100 women in show business. This sparked conversation between Wayne and I and one rainy weekend when we had nothing to do, we compiled our own Top 20 lists. The rules were we had to judge on looks alone (not their physique) and only one token model was allowed.
For fun, I thought I'd add our lists here for you to view and enjoy. Maybe it will even spark conversation between you and a friend or loved one.
Wayne and I actually had a really good time creating our lists together - judging each other's taste in the opposite sex and laughing over how long it took for us to prioritize our selections. We still change the order every time we look at it! (although our top five have remained the same)
Enjoy and feel free to comment!

Fight Club for Five Year Olds - Part 2

The other mother and I went into the school to meet with the teacher and the assistant head.  We both let them know how upset we were that we were not informed that our children were sent to the office and how much we were against the children being allowed to play fighting games on the playground.  I told them I wouldn't allow it at home and I'm really unhappy that it's being allowed at school.  They admitted it was a problem and explained that they are planning to introduce a a scheme to teach the children to play in a safe way.  They will be calling it 'Super Hero Training'.  They plan to give out capes & masks out to children who behave well as rewards at playtime.  They will have assemblies where they will teach the children to play fighting games without making contact.  I find this to be absurd.  The problem has gone on to long and I doubt they will be able to teach little children to change their games when they have sixty other children to look after o…

Feeling the rain

After I worked out today, I went into the kitchen for a bottle of water and saw the pouring rain out my patio door.  There are few times I can think of wanting to feel the rain more. Without a thought, I went out and stood in the rain.  English rain is cold, but today it felt incredible.  I live in a very public place, but in that kind of weather there was wasn't a soul in sight.  I thought about twirling, but the grown up in me squashed the notion. What I did do though was close my eyes and raise my chin toward the sky to let the rain fall on my face.  In my mind I slowed it all down and took it in.  I swear in those few moments I felt every drop. I've always loved the rain.  I  love the sound of it and like to open the windows and listen to it while drifting off to sleep on stormy nights.  Even as a child I would love to go out and play in. When I got older, I found it sensual and and dreamed of romantic moments that would play out under dark clouds, surrounded by grey tone…
