Well, here I am again. My apologies.... it has been quite a while... I'm afraid my life is just so full right now. Well, I'm not afraid... I am very lucky and happy.I am working hard on my Open University course and any spare time I have I try to study.I am so weak that I know that if I sit down to write my blog I will find myself lost for at least an hour, searching through your blogs...So I have been strong and have not ventured near here in the hope that my second essay will get written!
I am writing it on Fathers and Sons - a book that I had not read before. I absolutely love it!! I am rereading it and trawling through for quotes and generally looking deeper into it.I am just in love with my course!! Why did I not study literature 20 years ago??My first essay went well and my tutor gave me some very positive feedback, so I was chuffed.
Tonight I am sitting here, before I go to bed, wondering whether to moan about my rubbish football tonight...or whether to tell you of my new discovery...I know that many of you will have already revelled in the delights of...Edward. I know that Farmwife has.I had heard of the set of books - Twilight - but had not read them. Last night the film was on Sky and I thought I would settle down with a glass of wine and see if it was suitable for the boys to watch ( it is a 12 certificate). Well.... ladies..... swoon.....
I am currently pondering on the pros and cons of becoming a vampire.Of course, there is no point at all unless I find a veggie vampire like Edward to love me forever... but the thought has some strange appeal.I would appear to have a crush on a 17 year make believe vampire.At this point I should make clear to my husband, if he is reading this, that you are still my one and only, but golly gosh... when faced by 2 hours of a young, tortured, impossibly handsome vampire who would protect you forever, love you forever and is addicted to you like some sort of opium fiend... well, its a hard one to walk away from.
I was fully aware that I was falling for a formulaic, teen flick hero, and that if I fell for a 17 year old in real life the authorities would drag me away in a straight jacket. I was aware that in real life the actor is nothing like old Ed ( as I like to call him), but 2 glasses of Merlot in and I was his!! I would imagine that faced with a 45 year housewife the poor boy would run screaming, but one can day dream!!
Another thing to tell you is that I have had all my hair cut off.Well... not all, but it is very short.I went to the hairdressers and it just sort of happened. Its Long and floppy ish on top and short round the back and sides.Everybody has been awfully nice about it. People I don't even know have come up to me and told me that they love my hair!!
I wonder if Edward likes short hair...
