We Have Made It!

Damien’s charges have been dropped and his name has been cleared. We weren’t at the court the whole day, in fact we finished a lot earlier than I thought we would.
I’ll post on Monday with details of our three day “project” and descriptions of what Damien and I had to do.Thanx for all the prayers, well wishes and messages.

Quick Update

howdy all! no huge details yet, am busy writing a decent post… i just wanted to let you know that we we survived the two days at the “youth crime prevention” seminar. tomorrow it’s back to court for the final ruling. thanks for all your prayers and well wishes!
oh, and sorry bout the “invisible” post about mommyland- that’ll teach me to use a different email address to post from!

No More Butterflies

Nope. They have mutated into gargoyles- complete with claws, teeth and wings. Tomorrow is day one of mine and Damien’s “trial” and I am finding it increasingly difficult to concentrate on anything. Last night I didn’t sleep- not until after 1am at least. I watched “breakfast club” (a classic- still love it after all this time) and I watched Sunday’s F1 Brazilian grand prix, which I had recorded. Then I still tossed and turned like my bed was full of sand- I kept waking up again every time I felt like I was drifting off again. Damien also hasn’t slept well this week, and I know he’s anxious because for three nights in a row he’s crawled into my bed in the wee morning hours.
Pray for us both.

If I Ever Get Married

This will be my “first dance” song, I absolutely love these words- Westlife’s “Flying Without Wings “
Ev’rybody’s looking for that something
One thing that makes it all complete
You’ll find it in the strangest places
Places you never knew it could be
Some find it in the face of their children
Some find it in their lover’s eyes
Who can deny the joy it brings
When you’ve found that special thing?
You’re flying without wings
Some find it sharing ev’ry morning
Some, in their solitary night
You find it in the works of others
A simple line can make you laugh or cry
You find it in the deepest friendships
The kind you cherish all your life
And, when you know how much that means
You’ve found that special thing
You’re flying without wings
So, impossible as they may seem
You’ve got to fight for every dream
‘Cause who’s to know
Which one you let go
Would have made you complete?
Well, for me, it’s waking up beside you
To watch the sun rise on your face
To know that I can say I love you
At any given time or place
It’s little things that only I know
Those are the things that make you mine
And it’s like flying without wings
‘Cause you’re my special thing
I’m flying without wings
And you’re the place my life begins
And you’ll be where it ends
I’m flying without wings
And that’s the joy you bring,
I’m flying without wings…

Nearly Forgot My Big News

LOL! Kidding, news yes- but not big- I coloured my hair again on Saturday morning. My steadily increasing gray hairs were really starting to get to me. It’s now a lovely dark red- a darker red than I’ve ever tried before and I really like it- I usually pick an auburn colour. I’m feeling good and I love the new colour- I even put mousse in this morning to hold my fabulous curls doll!
