I am busting to tell someone so I hope you don’t mind me sharing some personal news…
Earlier today I was delighted to get a private message in my Afterword inbox (I have shared the opening words with you in the title). “Mrs juliet Olivia” sounds nice and I am really excited that she is now part of my life.
“What do you mean?” I hear you cry, in unison.
Well…WE’RE GETTING MARRIED!!!
I know, I know, it’s all a bit of a whirlwind isn’t it? I was tempted just to ignore it but, I dunno, maybe it was a signal from the Gods…but I replied to say hi and she came straight back to me! She says she loves me and just knows that we belong together. I didn’t believe in love at first cyber-sight but I certainly do now!
She’s sent me her photo and she looks like exactly like Farrah Fawcett in 1976. It’s funny how retro styles come back into fashion isn’t it? I sent her my pic and she told me off for sending her a picture of Brad Pitt! When I said that it was actually me, she was like “NO FREAKIN’ WAY!” and stuff like that. It’s nice to hear that actually because I always thought I resembled Brad Pitt…
It turns out that she also loves Depeche Mode, Gary Numan and Ipswich Town FC! She wrote back to me quite knowledgeably about each of them. Honestly, it was almost as if she is a walking Wikipedia!
I’m probably rambling now but can you blame me? I am walking on air. Soon, she’ll be on that plane and I’ll be at the Arrivals gate waiting for her with a bunch of flowers and a big, welcoming smile. I can’t believe flights are so cheap from Uzbekistan…a thousand quid is enough apparently for the flight and a week at a 5 star hotel near the airport! We are getting married in the chapel there and then after that we are having our honeymoon there. All I had to was send through my credit card details and we are all good to go!
So if I’m a bit quiet over the next week or so – you’ll know why! 😉
